okay bit of an update

been working on the front quarter panel trying to get that straight. coming up pretty well, dents coming out pretty well. I'm trying to get it as straight as i can with out much body filler.

couple of pics bit hard to show the dents and what not but better then nothing.

finally had a night off from work or a night where i didnt have some thing on. pulled the diff back out to get ready to give it a good clean out, and then assemble it. once assembled ill be painting it probelly a really dark grey. also does any one know where the get the brake like that connects from the hard line to the diff (see picture below) it would be nice it it was a braided brake line.1a3d2dbf.jpg

also got some questions about powdercoating. is it going to be cheaper to taking in a heap of parts and get them all done at once or is it going to cost about the same to take in some one day then the rest another? whats the colour selection like? and whats it like price wise? cheers guys I'm hoping to have a bunch of parts in by half way though next month to get things rolling quick

Ebay usually has a listing for brake hoses.

 

Either that or any brake shop would be able to knock one up on the spot.

Bro, buy a new door. 20 bucks, save the hassle. Ive got a 5cm rust hole underneath the chrome strip on my front door.

So lazy I'm gonna buy a new one. :laff:

But pissing around with 1cm of bog, the doors not worth the trouble, how bad will it be underneath?
