I did start by making a list. Of course, this list became longer as the work progressed. As I took parts off, and the original vehicle started to disappear, more faults were discovered, and more improvements implemented. But the original list was as follows:

  • A new rear crossmember
  • Repair several patches of rust on the chassis
  • New shock absorbers
  • Engine service
  • New exhaust
  • Front swivel seals leaking
  • and of course the repainting! Quasi-military striping is so not me!

So, first things first. I decided to start at the top and work my way down.
