Wow I did not realise how long it had been since I last updated this build thread.....

Well there has been good reason as I have been very busy the last couple of years clearing my late grandfathers house and ground before sale and to say he was a hoarder was an understatement Rolling with laughter I even had to use my digger to clear cars and scrap out of his 2 acres

Hi Clayton unfortunately they were all scraped except the Granada and scenic which went for bits. It looked a lot different when we had finished it did take most weekends over 3 years though Rolling with laughter Andy

So I did manage some jobs on the 110 changed front discs and pad for EBC black dimple and grooved discs and new minted pads. Although I am now hankering after the LOF extreme 16” wheel brake kit.

Having just done the single mass conversion and half shafts (i got the brit part ones) but they seem well made and the clunk is gone it feels like a new car to drive. How are you finding the Pirellis? I’m tempted to get them. Belize Green TD5 110 Double Cab aka Le Farm Truck

Really like the Pirelli tyres they handle well and give a bit more confidence in the wet they are just not easy to source in certain sizes at the moment. Andy
