:clap: Cracking job guys, love it..

The chassis really came up well, what colour is that on the powdercoat, silver/ grey ? Looks really well.

Cheers

I saw one of these on Wheeler Dealers and thought of this thread.

There is only one thing in life worse than not owning a DeLorean.

Hi All

Sorry for the gap in posts, work has been continuing on the Supervan, so carrying on from the last post I did, now the chassis is back, I started refurbing all the running gear, starting off with the rear suspension components...


All of the rear leaf springs, brackets and shackles have been cleaned up and painted...

Next up was the rear axle, this has had a complete strip down with all new sills and home made gaskets as these aren't available, to start with was to get all the years of gunk off it ...
