More Vitesse RBRR progress

Having completed the rebuild on the Vitesse slipper diff I turned my attention to the halfshaft assemblies. A couple of new short shafts, some GKN (Hardy Spicer) u/j's, new wheels bearings, new trunnions, and one new housing were consumed in the rebuild.

Over the years the back end of the car had settled to the point where a new swing spring was required so that went in. Everything then went back in with Polybush Red mountings, and new bolts, nuts, and washers as a matter of course.

Whilst the prop is away being checked for balance James had a poke around the car looking for any corrosion issues that might interest the MOT man.

In a matter of minutes he was attacking the passenger footwell with an angle grinder. I had never really given it a second look as it has been effectively hidden under a large aluminium passenger foot rest that was bolted through a rubber floor mat.

It turned out to be a little 'frilly'!
