Yeah, given how hard type 3 stuff has been to come by, in comparison to beetles and campers. I tended to buy up a second of the rarer bits when I could just to make like flow more smoothly when things like this happen.
A long time since I shared anything with you lot. I have since returned for a wheel alignment and its now running bang on.
After a couple of minor adjustments to correct the install of the new trailing arm, i was much happier driving home. Its still wasnt perfect though. In the straight a head position it was a bit twitchy and could end up pulling in either direction. But while on the alignment ramp id noticed a weep from the steering damper. So i replaced this with a new non leaky one and it has sorted the nuteral steer twitches. That's that battle over with!
In between other jobs I been working on my alturnate wheels, first job was away to the blasters. I then spent some time knocking the dings out of the lips and filing any rough edges as best I could.
WIth a coat of etch and then a couple of primer coats, rubbing down with 600g between coats.
The next job was to choose the colour.
First of all I went for the subaru impreza gold. But it was just too flat and light for me.
After some more research I found a couple more to try.
Ignore the runs in the paint! This was also too light for my taste.
But as they say, third time lucky, this one was just what im after.
So I got on with the job of painting. Three colour two clear.
