    Quick update; I had the handbrake Tabs welded on and the handle black-zinc coated, I prefer this low-profle look.
    I'm now looking for a suitable plasic handle (grip)...?

    The protective coating on the brake rotors had worn off and I was seeing some light surface rusting, I cleaned with jenolite + wire wool and then painted with VHT caliper paint.
    … then popped them in the oven for 1hr @93 degrees Centigrade... that is what it said on the tin and it seems to have hardened the paint.

    Thanks; Anyone thinking of selling-off household & kitchen items should retain their oven for this very purpose. Top-tip there.

    During the dry build it became apparant that the bushes between the Scooby Gearbox and the Subarugears crossmember had been cut down by a previous owner;

    The correct bush is from a Holden Commodore, but I don't believe that the after-market Holden bushes fit properly (which is why the previous owner cut them down).

    Anyway I found an alternative Landrover bush that is superior IMO.

    Today the Crossmember, which had to be RE-powdercoated because of a dry-fit issue (fixed with an angle grinder) came together with the new bushes for the first time, some adjustment was required to reduce the height of the inner section of a bush (one on each side) see the pic, but the adjusted bushes 'clamp' together nicely above and below the Crossmember.

    Sorry it's upside down - I don't know why :-(

    Try https://www.dropbox.com/s/ss9ht0bcon...38260.jpg?dl=0
    to see it rendered properly.
