The pistons where stuck in the calipers, but after a little pursuation I got them out. They did not came out with air pressure from my compressor, so tap them further in, put air pressure on it, tap them back in etc etc. After a while a loud bang and out they came one by one.
Then clean it all up to prep for painting. The bolts, clips, pistons and brake pad pins will go with the second batch to be zinc plated. The seals are all pretty much shot, so I need to find new ones.
The front suspension is assembled now with all the painted and new parts and it looks very clean. I’m also working to rebuild the calipers for cleaning and painting, but the pistons are stuck. So I need to sort that out. And I’m still a bit in doubt if I use the old and good, but a bit rusty discs or find new ones.
Now starting with rebuilding the rear diff. I’ve allready painted the axle, but I’m not completely satisfied with the result so possibly I’l do it again.
A rebuild heater, painted, new packings and seals, core repaired and cleaned and the motor tested and cleaned.
Taillight, window frames and some other small damages repaired. Pics of some heavy duty cut&saw metalwork is soon to follow.
Front window frame, unfortenately the picture focussed on the background so it is a bit blurr.
