Placed the car on the stand (which I had to lower 25 cm) and removed the front suspension and rear axle, a pretty easy job like this. Next step is to get some chemical paint stripper that works on 2K paint (synthetic paint) or skip that and let the sand blaster do the rest. Good paint stripper is very costly and bad for you’re health if you’re not using the right precautions. Decisions, decisions.. 😉
The car on its stand.
Rear axle removed. It will need new paint, brake lines, handbrake cables, new bushings, new brake cilinders, brake shoes, new springs, new shock absorbers etc etc. I will get to this when the car is away for blasting and painting.
Front suspension removed.
The battered and dirty front suspension; needs new bushings, all needs to be painted or powdercoated, clean or replace brake calipers, replace brake discs and pads, new brake lines, new engine mounts, new springs & shock absorbers, weld on a tow eye on the subframe and possibly reweld the shock towers (check for cracking).
