Removed rear clamshell to give better access

Made a crossbar to suspend the injection pump pre filter and pump. Bolted to chassis but needs welding to tank cradle

Few other bits done, rear ARB fitted but need to fit rosejoint droplinks. 12mm seems a bit of over kill so may weld nuts to bar and trailimg arms to drop to 10mm or even 8mm

I’ve still got Battys rear ARB in the garage if that’s any use to you? I think I returned the drop links - but if not they’re still on it and can pop them in the post.
