Looks like you are making good progress even if it is putting a bit of a fight to hang onto its rusted parts

Hammering an old imperial socket on them did the trick, combined with my 12v impact gun.

Rear drive shafts cleaned up. They're not in bad condition, under the muck. Need to collect some bits from The Toy Shop Wellington who have been pressing things in and out for me, then I can bolt some stuff back on.

Picked up my stuff from The Toy Shop Wellington. Various bushings pressed in and out. I had to strip and re-assemble one of the cv joints. It wouldn't move properly because I'd assembled it incorrectly.



Rear diff mount and front drive shafts are in place.





Front sub frame is assembled and ready to go on.
It feels great to finally be bolting some clean parts together.

Now, that is looking good.
Clean shiney parts going back on means the end can't be too far away.

Great stuff Rob, the paint makes it look pretty but all this work you are doing underneath will make it drive like a Quattro should.

Excitement...followed by disappointment. I bought the wrong brake pads. Fail.

Been there, done that! Racebrakes in Auckland should have something suitable for reasonable money.
