When you strip there rear end, how do you know and what sort of measurements and checks are you making/taking, to ensure it goes back together? I'm curious because I need to do this, but the bit that worries me is that I need to make sure I end up with something that drives when its done

What's your plan regarding prep and paint for the pan?

Most of it you can just unbolt. with the spring plates I tend to lever them off the stop and photo/measure the angle of the drop. To be fair you often need to do a bit of fiddling once the car is fully rebuilt and all the weight is in place.

Chassis wise as it's going to be used a lot so - etch prime, some primer, stonechip on the bottom and sides then black 2 pack over everything. Hoping my mate is going to get this done whilst I'm away next week.

Stripped the original headlights down to basic components.
The glass to headlight bucket seals need replacing. Hopefully should receive new seals tomorrow.
Need to replace screws on both headlights that attach lights to wings.
Glass was discoloured inside, so gave both lenses a good clean.
Over the next few days will clean headlight buckets and respray, clean reflectors and chrome rims and finally reassemble.
