Psycho pops is on a distinguished road

Progress report
Home again and got stuck into the Sammio again,
One step back after thinking about the Hammerite on the chassis although it looked clean in gold I decided it wouldn't offer the stone chip protection I wanted so have gone over this with Hammerite stone chip underbody paint, yes its dull and black but shouldnt need any more attention for some time.

Cut the bulkhead down to size, thought rather than a straight cut across I would try matching it to the shape of the body, took a bit of fine trimming at the edges but overall pleased with the result, should be easier to seal the gap between the bulkhead and the body as this cut leaves about a 1/2" gap along its width once the body is place down onto it.
This should also leave plenty of space for the wiring loom to pass through.


Engine side

Rebuilt the rear Hubs, with Polybushes (Blue), Rebuilt Trunnions
and fitted

Fitted the Swing spring, new centre box, lowering block and Poly Pad,

Diff is back on after new oil seals and bushings.

Finally decided to stick with the four speed gearbox ( J type Overdrive for sale shortly) so serviced and refitted same.

Overall happy enough with progress.
