Got the new bearings, seals and nos collars on the differential output shafts.

Then moved on to coating the underside at the rear with upol raptor.
This will enable me to refit the rear suspension soon.

Then back to the differential to start fitting the brakes before running out of time.

All looking good, except that there should be a shim on the front pad slipper, and that quadrant return spring should be hooked behind the caliper body.

Realised about the spring but was unaware about spring as i didnt refurbish the calipers.
I can see it now you pointed it out.

I feel a bit churlish pointing those sort of things out when the quality of your work is so high, the problem is that if I notice them I can't help it.

So......There should also be a special washer (sort of egg-shaped with a small hole in the small end) under the OS caliper forward cover bolt, that a spring from the handbrake crossbar hooks into, and that will be a lot easier to fit on the bench than on the car.

I dont mind at all.
My knowledge on how things should be originally is limited so any feedback is appreciated as only have how it was to go by when i got it to go by.

Found the egg shaped washer
Silly question but whats the orientation of the little lock tabs on the sliders for the pads?

Bit more done yesterday with most of the rear suspension going back in.
Just the hubs and driveshafts to go back in after fitting new bearings and universal joints.

Have both driveshafts and hubs back in now and its sat on its wheels for the first time in months.
Still need to tighten all the bolts up on all the suspension arms but thinking it would be better to wait until theres more weight in the car
