Yep, & in the vice, protect the balljoint with a wet rag & give it a tug.

What could possibly go wrong? ;)

So next step is, I'm picking up the chassis next Sunday (16th) and then it will be going in for Galvanize and powder coat on the 17th, not sure how long this is going to take as yet but I'm guessing after xmas/new year, then its all down to me to get the thing put back together :shock:
Watch this space :dance:

That is fantastic to see there mec and Alex.. Exciting times that welding is work is truly epic what a turnaround!
It ll be stronger than ever
Brilliant!

Are you going with a different colour for the powder coating of the chassis or match the original?

Cheers
