Its a roller

Sunday morning,early, well 8am.
1. Installed the driveshafts, greased the driveshaft splines, pushed into place in the dif and a quick couple of bangs with a rubber hammer.

2. Assembled the de-dion hub assemblies. Fixed the ears to the De-Dion tube, with the driveshaft ends going through the hole, then bolted on the hub.

3. Installed speed sensor. Is it alligned well enough -its a little offset?

5. Then I found a problem, the anti-roll bar connectors were pushed up and out of the way for the above work. When I tried to rotate the down into position, they were bloacked by the De-Dion hubs. So the de-Dion hubs had to come back off, rotate the anti-roll bar then re-install the hubs. This is the 3rd time I installed them – I was really good and fast by now.

6. Anti-roll bar connected with drop links (softeast setting for now). Installed brake calipers & pads & connected handbrake cable to brake assemblies (did not adjust yet).

7. Installed roll-over bar – this has to go in before the rear dampers because access is blocked blocked by the top damper mounting. Had to use a M10 tap to clean out the screw holes in the roll over bar before bolts would go in (too much paint?).

8. Installed rear dampers.

9. Put on back wheels – now its a roller.

10. Torqued the hub nuts to 270NM (200ft-lbs).
