When you go and have your IRS reconditioned, make sure you take the brakes apart before you mount them.
Looks good, even the upper paste is in and the pads were almost new
The piston did not move at all. ACHTUNG !! Some vor and back and it started moving.
Rest was done with air pressure.
Bad news right from the first cylinder, how is that possible.
„some“ corrosion, disaster right from the first unit
the other one as well
ALL four piston and cylinders are corroded, need to find out if they can be reconditioned
Same with the cylinders
you do not want to have these in your car
out of my sight please, maybe I can get them redone
Instead I remember that I found a nice set of SS on the other car
Even used and not driven for years …..
bright and shiny and with DUNLOP srubber seals
Will put these nice SS in there
Bright and shiny
Here we have the inner sill on the right hand side, this pic shows the seat belt mounting behind the passangers side.
Inner sill, passangers side, already pelaced ones but not good enough.
Here we have the inner sill on the left hand side, this pic shows the seat belt mounting behind the drivers side.
I made a repair panel for both sides 65 mm x 15 mm with 45° angle. Reinforced with a 2mm squared tube of 20×40 mm
First, the tube and panel are painted with anti corriosion.
The tube is in the middle of the panel.
This goes all along the inner sill.
Some fine adjusting are required for better fitting.
Here a cross pic of the panel welded in, it goues right through till the inner back wheel fender
Protected and sealed with wachs.
Instead of the commercial angled nut holder, I made a 5 mm plate, drilles the two holes, welded the nuts and then the plate to the tube.
The inner mounting section I have bought from Robey, They only come in a pair of inner and outer mounts.
The rest is business as usual
After sandblasting and cutting out the floor panels, I discovered these places. I wonder how many cars are beeing sold and are driving round with risks like this.
The complete floor will be replaced
This is my project, how it started, my thoughts and my solutions
