    Making huge progress. I suppose the dismantling and cleaning, painting etc always takes the most time. Good work, enjoying your posts.

    Rear axle straps arent handed AFAIK. there were several different lengths for different models tho. Umm 2 lengths for shorties and about 4 for 109's possibly 5.

    G'day Rod, mine has two different lengths with the passenger side being longer to accommodate axle reinforcing on that side, end result is same clearance both sides..........of course I started on the drivers side and installed strap for passenger side

    when I moved around to passenger side remaining strap was to short

    Oh ok Paul. I dont have a shorty but was told they were the same l 2 r. I have some axle straps at home but they r too short for my 109 so i thought they were of a 88. I stand corrected. Thanks for putting me straight. I dont like giving out wrong info. Id like a shorty but i dont have the room for one atm.

    Cheers mate

    Not quiet Duck Egg Blue but I'm happy with result

    Cheers Paul
    Not really wanting to hijack your thread Paul, but just wondering about engine colour. Is "Duck Egg Blue" the original colour, is this year related, or is model related, as in 1/2/2A, how'd you find out or source this info exactly?

    G day Marcus not sure about engine colour.....I went with blue because I'd seen a few builds on the forum with engines "duck egg blue" and I liked the look
    I'm sure someone will answer more concisely about engine colour re year
    I'll admit I'm not a rivet counter and are building a car that looks right to me, it keeps changing I enitially painted pedals silver they are now black.
    Deep bronze green works really well with black, silver, limestone and blue to my eye
    Cheers Paul
