    That should make light work of it, I always hear them before starting removal.

    Thanks Tim, tbf it pulled the first one perfectly, which was in good condition for it's age, but the second was a different story, but a touch of heat and easy peasy. So no differences in 850/v70 rear setups, so a straight swap is no issue ??

    They are the same, A later P1 V70 will have two brake pipes to the rear or a C70 is a bit fatter.

    Thanks for the info, the spare subframe will be stripped and painted etc, before being rebuilt the same as the T-5R's are at present, then I'll have a swap over day, when the front brake calipers can be changed to and the braking system filled with nice new fluid and goodrich braided hoses all round..

    Well after 10 months (possibly +) lay up, it was time to get Gul cleaned up ready for MOT prep. I'm not that I see any real issue so far. Well what is she worth insurance wise these days, I think all my cars are 1000's under value at present going my market values, I would be interested in your thoughts on this....fire away...

    Dirty beasts awaiting cleaning, after pics are waiting till the sun comes back out, but they'll probably need cleaning again by then...

    Oh and one other thing that has happened since awakening the Gul, is that the info bar in the dash clocks has disappeared, anyone had this issue before and what was the cure (other than swapping the clocks...obviously) ??? The ice warning light is still working though. Ta.
