    Front legs made up


    Also decided I wasnít going to risk alternator clearance despite it clearing on the car it came out of....
    So out with the blowtorch and big calibrator
    re did the weld too, just needs cleaning up, sealing, priming and painting AGAIN.... luckily I wasnít happy with the finish anyway!
    Aim is to get this done this week/weekend, get the front end back on some wheels so I can turn her round, then bring the engine back home and drop it in.
    Then it should be a case of wiring/plumbing it all in, fit the gte tank and get her on the road...... if only it was that easy

    Primed, sealed, primed and painted, not the best job but Iíll get the bay done properly next time the engines out.


    Had some paint left so gave the white grill a blow over, again not the best but better than white or a stock merit grill.

    Little update today but a significant one....

    Bearings, knuckles and hubs/drive flanges what ever you want to call them, all pressed together....
    Bushes pressed into lower arms and tie bar mounts, all bolted together with ball joints, used existing as theyíre fine!

    All bolted together and shocks on....
    everything will get masked off too so I can spray the inner arch with black stone chip too...
    And as of 9pm this eve the car is back on all 4 Wheels on the ground ready to turn round..... which means I can jack up the rear and swap the fuel tank over and rear shocks....
    but more importantly get the XE dropped in!!!

    Not hanging about now, it was meant to be done for Bromley Pageant in June 🤣🤣 finally gathering pace getting stuff done, life seemed to get in the way.

    I have all the intention of the engine coming out next October, but Iím under no illusions it probably wonít 🤣
