The body is now painted (and looks fantastic) and will be coming back on monday hopefully. So i've been getting things ready to go back on as i've only got about 4 weeks before blyton. I've assembled the rear subframe but hit a small problem with the kad rear arms- the handbrake cable doesn't fit, due to the quadrant being in a slightly different place and the lump on the arm where the knuckle joint goes in being bigger the quadrant hits the arm before the handbrake is fully engaged. After speaking to KAD they are aware of the problem and said they usually supply a collar to shorten the cable but they have run out. I just re-drilled the bit on the end of the cable:DSC_0451 by garrywadey, on Flickr

it means the quadrant is rotated more towards the drum end of the arm so can pivot more before it hits the lump

Nice one Gaz, going to be fitting my rear subframe soon and havenít fitted the handbrake cable, I donít recall having any collars supplied either so Iím guessing theyíve stopped supplying them rather than ran out.

he said they didn't always supply them and ran out a while ago so appears only a lucky few got them. To be hones re-drilling the cable is a better fix anyway

It's home, the paintwork is fantastic thanks to chris and tim at whights for pulling out all the stops working in their spare time, evenings and weekends to get it done for me:

Nice. Useful picture as well, as I didn't realise the rear ARB fitted like that. Can I come and have a nosey at the brackets that fit to the rear hubs?

You know your getting obsessed when you start fitting your axle stands with wood covered in thick carpet

Front end all assembled, all the glass is fitted - the polycarbonate rear screen was too big so had to be ground down around the outside edge to fit. the sliding side windows are a bit stiff but hopefully will get better as the seals relax. Also fitted the battery and fired it up for the first time in nearly six months, started on the first turn of the key. Hoping to have it all back together and on the road by the end of the week
