    Thanks, it's good to be on board.

    Sorry, the photos are a bit crap. Hopefully you can see the progress though.

    I'm planning on doing the old Rustoleum paint job as soon as we get some prolonged good weather and i'll probably change the alloys to something dishy as soon as i can afford them

    I would've been a lot further along with it as well, if the bloody thing wouldn't fight me all the way. Even getting a nut off a bolt turns into a weekend-long job.
    I need to tackle the front shocks but I don't think i'm ready for the physical pain and stress it'll cause me just yet.

    Hoping to get the interior carpeting finished off this weekend, fashion some sort of makeshift surfboard rack and then he'll be ready for his first camping excursion soon.

    They usually come off ok. Give it all a soak with Plusgas, not WD40 and you should be ok. A bit of grease on the long bolt throu the shocker and wishbone will help for next time. That has to come off for doing the bottom ball joints and you'll have to do those at some point. Had 2 sets in 30.000 on our ole tub.
