Looking good :)

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

Loads of little fiddley bits today rear axle brake lines, tapping some holes as the galv protect didn't quite do the job. Got the 4WD tranfer box in and working on the vacuum lines

Ok was a bit browned off after I connected the vacuum pipes to the hubs this evening. (Sticking with the vacuum for the moment until I get the funds for mechanical free wheeling hubs) . To be precise I thought the black plastic pipe armor/shield looked a bit tatty at the ends see below. 

So I took them off again and hit them with some heat shrink.
 

Ok, it's not super flash but to me, it's a bit tidier. To be fair a lot of the builders here go to the next level and that's what influenced my little tity up job.

Ok the 2004 M13A and 1999 G13BB power steering boxes are not the same , the banjo fittings on the G13 are smaller than the M13. Had to swap pumps this evening.

Also, the rad brackets on the M13A don't match the holes perfectly on the G13 chassis had to clean the G13ones and paint em will fit tomorrow.

It's funny that there are variations in bolt holes etc given it's changed very little. there are only 5 years between the two jimnys on this project.

Ok Engine in and Gearbox, Clutch kit ordered and will fit before I go any further. Rear engine mount shot so need to buy a new one and stick in the brake shoes. I think the M13A engine and gearbox is about 10mm longer  than the G13BB because when I dropped in the engine and gearbox the rear engine mount didn't line up with the chassis by 10mm.
