The fabricated box is currently bolted up at the moment, it will be welded up soon.

So glad to get this done as it was really holding up the rest of the build as I needed to get the frame mounted properly and all mods done before I could crack on with the rest of the fitting. I feel a milestone has been reached

Reading back through my posts I noticed I'd said this when got it back on the road in 2011 after swapping the rear subframe. Something I'd not mentioned was that at the same time I'd fitted new dampers all round.

When I started stripping the car last year I found the drivers side top damper bolt was loose, I probably just didn't tighten it up properly (it was a Nylock so unlikely to have come undone itself) - I reckon that might have been the cause of the creaking as it wasn't doing it before I took the car of the road in 2009 to do the subframe ...

The moral of this story - always check and then double-check your nuts
