It's a lot easier when you have done it before!

Now facing into the reconstruction cant decide what to do with the chassis after I clean it. I'll make up my mind soon enough.

Down to the Chassis, today boiling in the shed. 
 


Going to need some advice on how to open and remove these black clips that hold the fuel and brake lines together I want to reuse them .

When I did my fuel & brake lines I had this idea that I could open them up and get the pipes out- they are too brittle. I ended up cutting the pipes into small sections and sliding them out one at a time (along the pipe, not across it). The clips did click over the new pipe though- mostly.

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

I would change them if they are the ones in the last picture! They are easy to change with the body off, a right pain with it on.

Use copper alloy tubing, the only thing to watch is suzuki brake pipe fittings are short and threaded right to the ends, the more common type have no threads for the first 5mm, so only screw in a couple of turns.

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

So after about 19 days and not all full days, I have 2 Jimnys separated and a chassis about to go to the shot blaster and with a bit of luck start the reassembly end of the week.
