These are the posts that inspire me the most. Seeing the corrosion (that I personally feel lurks in all of our original cars), and watching it be transformed/fabricated into a "better than new" condition - to be enjoyed for decades to come. Love it - looks great!!!
Thanks guys! I love it too, I get so much satisfaction from scrolling back through my pictures to see the rusty before pics haha

Here’s another shot of the rear axle

thanks James ! i already send a mail if they can deliver 4 sets.... ( as i see only 2 in stock )
I only bought 2 sets actually. I think I will only run spacers on the rear (if at all), but if you wanted longer studs on all 4 corners you can replace the rear with the ARP studs, and then put the oem rear studs on the front. They are about 10mm longer.

@JamesE30 , i just ordered 4 sets , they claim to have them in about a week. ( only 2 sets in stock now ) Even if rear studs are 10 mm longer, that's not enough for my 12 mm spacers…. as i find already now the nuts are not fully on it … yes , about 8 turns , which should be OK , but i like to see them fully threaded. If they are to long , no problem to cut a part off.

Hi James, I was wondering about the calipers, when you had them zinc plated, did you removed all of the seals and pistons out of each of the them? How did they prevented from getting the zinc in there?
Thanks Victor

Yes the calipers were completely disassembled and zinc plated including the piston bores. It’s important the bores are protected as well, as corrosion in there is most likely to lead to siezend pistons..
