    Default Long awaited rebuild

    So decided to rebuild my Baja. I built this in 2013 and haven't really done anything to it really..
    After my bad couple runs with poor reliability I think it's time..

    Going to go for the big bore shocks from IRC
    And all blue chassis braces from IRC



    Looking at other clutches what does everyone else run.








    Cleaned the parts before I de anodised them..



    I have to clean the skint more than I cleaned my parts



    Took the diff out cleaned it up re greased it..



    Seem to have had a leak from my exhaust.


    Started to rebuild the back end..






    I will keep this thread update for people that maybe interested in the build.

    still waiting on parts for the other build so managed to get some work done on this..

    I have tapped the front axel extenders as my wheels seem to come off every outing with the e-clips.





    had to cut the lip off the end of the extender so the washer would sit flush.



    started on the front end.. waiting on parts.

    MASSIVE oversight with this build.....the blue paper towel is clearly mounted back to front in the first pic of this page. Obviously it should be first sheet over the top and not behind. You should be ashamed. Would you mount a toilet roll that way young man?

    It MAY have been corrected in the bottom pic, did the ocd police pay you a visit?

    Who cares about engineering and metal when the towel is back to front. This is serious ocd law breaking.

    A flywheel puller is what you need.
