    progress on vinny at last

    finally got round to spending a day working on vinny yesterday
    started by cutting up a pair of escort boot hinges.............
    from this.................

    to this......................

    which were the right shape to hold on this..................

    then proceeded to make new brake pipes for the rest of the rear beam.................


    then fitted new shoes and pads and fitted refurbeddiscs and modified calipers



    all i have to do now is fit rear beam back on vinny......................another day perhaps

    was joined by shreckblackr as one of his rear calipers was sticking on.......................apologies for fuzzy pic

    then we cured the front wheels from rubbing.........................but only after shreck prayed to the wheel gods

    all sorted.....................

    i did think about cleaning and painting axle but it would be the ONLY time it will ever get cleaned..............have cleaned / painted springs and shocks........
    so will look nice for a week or so...................................or until i go to workshop again...............
    they are my old wheels on shrecks car............been refurbed in crystal white............they do look good on his car and really suit it
