Jigsaw Puzzle

Well, with the estate away in the body shop for painting, it was time to sort the suspension parts out for assembly, so after cleaning the garage floor again I dragged them out of the cellar and laid them out

As you can see there's quite a bit of stuff, in slightly more detail, polished alloys, with stainless steel wheel nuts.

The mobile tyre fitter is coming round on tuesday to fit some Toyo 175 80 14s to these

front suspension parts

struts and steering rack

rear suspension

 modified nissan drive shafts and brake drums, and rear dampers
 Thats going to keep me busy for a while.

One issue that I do have is with the modified front suspension - standard Triumph nuts and bolts won't fit, they are often too long or too short, so I need to take the original bolts that I have saved to a fastener specialist to get replacements, in particular this involves the rack mouts to the subframe, and all the bolts on the steering uprights.
