Hi Stot,
I hear you was down my neck of the woods Saturday.
If I had known I could have shown you round my car and had a chat.
The car was in the workshop where you picked up your stuff from and I was working on it upto about 4o'clock so must have just missed you...

Hi Johno,

I missed that bodywork by minutes unfortunately so it wasn't me if that's what you meant?

I was at home helping Phil @ Talon load my MX5 shell onto the back of his truck.

Never seen another man make my wife so happy....

Cheers
Stot

a wee update. I needed to strip the rear uprights completely and I had a seized bolt stuck in one of them. I had cut the bolt to remove the upright from the wishbone.

I spent an age trying to get the damn circlip out of the upright and in the end took an old set of vice grips and welded them to the circlip!




Came out in seconds and i pressed the bearings out with a 12 ton press.




Ready for final blasting an painting.

Next up the seized bolt.



I center drilled it on the mill and then used a dead center in the press to free it up and a long socket to push it through.





It went with a bang.

Got the rear drivetrain bits blasted and painted. These are first coat pictures but I did the second coat this morning so they are done.





I have new bearings, brake seals, ball joints etc to go on. Be rolling soon...

Cheers
Stot

Nice work!
I gave up trying to remove the bolts out of my rear uprights and bought another pair with them pre-removed

Its definately handy having some big tools kicking around! If I hadnt been able to push it out I was going to mill it out but I managed to save the mess.

They come out a lot easier if you can spin the bolts in the uprights with an impact gun, soak over night with oil, then they come out with a drift and a big Ammer!
