Starting off with a fairly nice solid foundation ( esp with having a vinyl top ) . Nice assortment of part(s) being restored and stored during the process . Keep the foto(s) coming . Along with the background scenery =)

The level of craftsmanship on the interior is amazing; I’m not sure you could get something comparable done in the US at any cost. As an example, we have older buildings in the US with impressive stone work on the exterior, but that skill has basically disappeared.

The disc brakes for the front should come on Monday - I will now used the Right Stuff Conversion Kits for 14 in. Wheels for the orig Drum Brake Spindle

Then I'll screw the front frame together including the steering linkage. It's great that almost every screws are available newly.

Next week also all parts for the rear drum brakes should pop up. I will than paint the disc caliper, drum and carrier plate black with Por-15 Disc Caliper Paint.

Otherwise I'm still a little undecided about how to continue with the rear end!

The axles are worn at the bearing seat, so axles and bearings must definitely be replaced.
The bearing races from the Diff carrier bearings are also run rough -> so going also to replace these bearings.

Pinion and Ring still look very good (according to the service manual and 44k miles should not be an issue either) and Pinon bearing seam still moving good. To be honest, I don't trust myself to swap the Pinion bearings, nor to install the ring and thus another diff.

Will only change the 4 planetary gears from the Open-Diff, including the bolt.

Then the rear axle should run again without much adjustment or measuring work required.

One more final question: orig. Diff cover or ..?
