    Is this too far gone

    Really! I'd have thought it would only remove corrosion unless it was in a really strong solution maybe?

    Hi guys I’m after a little help if possible

    So is it turning over? There is a small earth coming from the loom to the back of the gearbox, easily knocked off if changing the starter. I did just that

    Ph1 flamer reds - 60 made so to have one on 34k is even rarer! Good find

    Whiteline rear beam bushes - Any good?

    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.

    Whiteline rear beam bushes - Any good?

    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...

    Whiteline rear beam bushes - Any good?

    Did you manage to press these in yourself? I've given up on febi ones, simply wont press in even after 24hrs in the freezer. The rubber on the bush was so compressed it had begun to split.

    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!

    @Big_Steve_T I'm about to fit febi beam bushes using your measurements, because they dont go tight up to the beam what is to stop the beam moving on the mounts?

    Whiteline rear beam bushes - Any good?

    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...

    Do they ever not leak?

    What have you done to your car today ???

    Refitted the fuel tank, heatshields and exhaust mount with stainless fixings. Fitted all fuel and brake line clips, just waiting for the beam to come back from powder coating.

    Fuel tank foam

    Rubble sack, aluminium tape and worktop edging tape. Problem solved!

    Fuel tank foam

    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?

    What have you done to your car today ???

    Yes mine is too, I've wire brushed, hydrate 80 and painted them with silver hammerite

    What have you done to your car today ???

    Yeah I've been watching your progress, I need to order braided rear brake lines and a few clips for the heat shields then it's just waiting for the beam to come back.

    That's a absolutely great mate, I'm sure before my beam comes back I'll have another question or two for you! Watching this project has cost me a fair bit but I've also cleared a lot of hidden rust.

    Refitting fuel tank

    One other question, the pump cover on my fuel tank was totally covered in road crap, should there be anything to seal it to the underside to prevent dirt getting on top?

    Refitting fuel tank

    I've had the fuel tank out of my 172, is there a procedure to reconnecting it all to purge air out of the system or will that not be a problem?
