Update on the GT
No pictures again, sorry but my posts are becoming small footnotes as I am so busy with one thing or another. The axle has been rebuilt and collected now. And with some luck they found a new 3.77:1 Crown wheel and Pinion set and fitted that along with new bearings and seals. Its now sat in the front showroom of Retropower and will (I am sure) be hidden away until its needed on the car.
I still have the rear brakes to find and some machining work to get done on the hubs, But until the wheels arrive (OHH new wheels!!) I will not know what size hub sleeve to have made and fitted to the hubs.
Here are the new wheels by the way, a set of 6 x 13 Cosmic Alloys won off eBay and hopefully being collected by a friend at the end of the week and delivered to me.
I have also dropped off the front hubs and a set of XR3 front disks with the local machine shop, so hopefully those will be ready in the next day of so. The plan is to get the hubs fitted to the new subframe ASAP and swap the axle off the car. I need to do this sooner rather than later as the front axle belongs to someone else and they are itching for it back.
