Thanks for the link, some interesting items on there.

Got a few photos but not sure how to upload? Have jpg files but doesn't seem to like them. Have we moved away from using photobucket now?

I second Imgur. Haven't used it a whole lot yet, but it's a hell of a lot better that PB

I finally got some half decent photos and have started using imgur instead, so much better!

I got the panhard bar fitted this evening and everything clears through full wheel travel and articulation. After I've welded up the panhard mount which is just tacked in postition for now, the next job is to attack the shell again, remove the top link mounts now they are no longer required and cut out the old spring and shock mounts. There really isn't a lot of room for a coilover with the standard shock turret so will fabricate and fit new larger turrets capable of carrying the full load. I can then also cut off the redundant mounts for springs and top links from the axle, clean everything up and get some paint on there.

For anyone that's interested, I'm wire wheeling and sanding the whole bottom of the shell and painting with Isopon 182. It's zinc rich and quite thick making everything look a lot more presentable.
