1750 GTV – March 2011 #3
The body shell has gone to the blasters – to have the engine bay, radiator crossmember, and wheel-arches cleaned up. A replacement front left shock mount was welded in, promptly supplied by Manning Motors. The only progress to show here is the bonnet, stripped and a some cracks welded up. The frame has been re-sealed to the skin.
I collected all the front suspension arms, and rear axle and trailing arms and brought them home. Forty years of built up grime on the diff housing is quite difficult to move with degreaser and a stiff brush, but I’m getting there. I’ve ordered all the parts to renew all the front and rear suspension – bushes, tie rods, bearings, seals etc.
