Here are some pics of progress on Saturday afternoon. If it is dry tomorrow, I will finish off by lifting the back up and stripping anything of worth from the rear suspension.

Do me a favour Robert, pull all of the plastic bungs out from the chassis rails, as many as you can please, also have a go at levering off those little roof trims above the rear quarterlights.

Let me know what the damage is when its posted.

Dave,

There was a leak from the steering assembly, not sure if it was the ram or pinion valve. But both are still there.

I also have a CX rear subframe if you are interested in that.

Dean,

I'll try and get as many of those bungs as I can.

Bob,

I might have some estates ones, I shall check and report back.

Ciaran,

I'll have a look.

Bob.
I know where there is an estate being broken. Someone had a go at removing the rear rams but couldn't, but if a real problem just drop the whole subframe and pull them off afterwards.

If interested let me know and I'll send you their number.
