Finished the brakes off tonight. Used a Gunson easy bleed system to push the fluid through the lines and it worked a treat.

Brakes Finished

Used Dinitrol cavity wax inside the gusset repair sections, plugged them back up and painted the outsides with Gravitex. Will get some pictures of that posted up – shown here with the POR15 Tie Coat Primer on. Next thing is to top coat in Hammerite white and then put the ARB back on. After that it’s back on wheels.

Talking of which, I finished painting the Michelin steel wheels centre caps during the week.

Tonight I used a crow bar to prise to the inserts that were in two of the wheels to suit the VTR wheel bolts. Rear wheels are now on.
