    work involved in fitting L300 steering column due to flimsy dash panel flexing when moving wheel. it bolts to the door pillar with nuserts.

    fitting the L300 steering column. i gad to fabricate a support beam to hold the column due to the dash panel being flimsy. the fixed VW column is ok but the adjustable & unijointed 1 flops around to much.

    Fitted up the left side arm & hub brake assembly today all new nuts & bolts. I'm happy with the lift for the time being. It's stock location on the splines so a bit there if needed.

    I had to fabricate this joiner for the handbrake cables. I'm using a linear actuator to operate the handbrake. I had the original Kombi unit searched for an hour before doing this 1. while i was linish finishing it i found the original on the shelf above the linisher

    I had to fabricate these plates to use as spacers between lift arms & spring plate on the bottom 2 bolts

    fitted the right side CV & shaft it's to long tomorrow i will fit the left side shaft tomorrow to see if the diff can move across to replace plunge.
