Yeah, I've had it blasted and powdercoated. Nothing but bare metal in the holes. I'm going to order whiteline bushes as they insert all the way in and dont rely on an interference fit I'm assuming they may be a tad looser.
I essentially made that yesterday using a length of threaded bar, a huge socket and a brake caliper piston with a hole in the end. Even on a breaker bar it wouldnt budge. The metal bush casing is far bigger than the inner larger hole on the beam.
I presume there must be a manufacturing...
Holy crap they arent going in easily, I've made a press from 10mm threaded bar, an old caliper piston with a hole drilled in the end and a big socket but it's not budging once it's got to the taper on the bush. In the freezer for the night!
I went febi, under £30 with new bolts was a no brainer. Not fitted yet so if anyone can sway my decision I can still go the way of Whiteline and sell on the Febi. Cheap new bolts that way!
How hard are the bushes to press in, I've noticed oe ones dont press all the way on. How do I know how far...
The black plastic wrap around my fuel tank pad has disintegrated, I think if I put just the foam back it would sponge up water and hold it against the floor pan.
Would wrapping it in a black bag work, any other ideas?
