Thread: Long awaited rebuild

  1. #41

    Default

    My 7yr old daughter has just enjoyed helping me strip and clean the shocks, the caps have come off perfectly and now they are ready with the ally bodies to be anodised blue with the rest of my bundle to go off.

    One was empty of damper fluid, the other was full so they needed stripping anyway.

    Do you need me to put them back together when done or can I send them in bits for you to re-assemble? All the other bits of the shocks are ready to go.

    Cool, I have posted off all the bits to you today...all bar the bodies and caps to be anodised so you can get some of it bolted up. I am sending off all my anodising today so hopefully the bits will be back sometime next week.

    Painted some of my parts that I couldn't source from IRC as out of stock..
    Not 100% correct colour match but it's only going to get muddy..



    Painted tank and put a clear coat to help protect it..



    Setup the brakes...

    built up the front shocks that I got off caddyshack.



    bad lighing... making it look like marks are on the blue.


    was a little clumsy when getting air out the shocks..




    had some thin plastic left over... made some axle protector Guards

    made this up today wasn't a fan of taking the cage off to fill the tank. I am aware you can buy something simpler but why waste money.

    was adding up all the stuff on its own non vertigo items I needed and it was getting expensive so made sense.
