Right then, more progress done today and im a bit ahead of schedule. Managed to singlehandedly refit the axle which was a faff as the passengers side had been shoved back but with use of a bottle jack, prybars and screwdrivers managed to get it all lined up nicely and fitted. All looks square again now so Im happy that my dumbiron repair has worked out :) Also got round to fitting the other track rod and set the tracking up. I will have to do this later on again when the wheels are on to set the toe in. Everything looks good so far, was very lucky with the chassis damage being so limited. Oh also painted everything gloss black so looks better now :)

I also started on a bit of bodywork by straightening out my front panel and giving a coat of grey undercoat

So tomorrow I'll probably refit the new shock absorbers (Procomp ES3000s) so will be back to being an almost rolling chassis. I'll leave the wheels off till ive fitted the wings so I can have maximum access to everything. Plus it makes it easier to bledd the brakes.
