Default Spot weld failure

After I have finished decorating the landing the time has come to drop the rear subframe and repair the boot weld failure
Going to replicate the Randy Forbes kit (Its far to expensive to ship over)
Re bush the trailing arms ,mounting points , diff etc re paint and reseal as required .....far more satisfying than painting and decorating!!!!!!!!

Not much planned at the moment, mirrors and acs rear spoiler being repainted at the moment, on the look out for new or new old stock parts as always.

I’m going to do an underside bush and suspension restoration and potentially look into fitting a double ear diff cover.

Dreaded Vanos rebuild (too tight to pay up to 2k). Got the parts, just need a pint or two of courage!!
Followed by a sump gasket replacement (dreading this more than the vanos!).
One or two little patches on the bodywork need tidying as well.
Wish me Luck!!!
Howard.

My MC is currently at Munich Legends.
I think all the work is done (pretty much anyway) and had planned to collect it Thursday and was going to update my journal to document everything done.

As the lockdown was pretty inevitable I had then planned to fit the BMW Business CD43 headunit, Bluetooth module & retrimmed steering wheel that I have acquired to while away some time.

Well that’s that plan scuppered!

They're automatically extending MOTs by 6 months for vehicle due for renewal after 30th March:

Matter of time but glad they have acted fairly quickly
