A bit of progress: I really need to turn the car around, because I have ****ty access to the left rear quarter for sanding. So i have to make the car moveable. And as I want progress too, I decided to finish the suspension paint and put it in place.

This required reinforcing the torq rods:

And removing heavy rust from the joints on the M47 crossmember:

Got most of the suspension sandblasted and powder coated, now the front control arms are already in place with new bushings. Two hardline needs a bit of work and it will get the struts in place too.

After sandblasting I sprayed the whole rear axle, trailing arms, the coupe's rear axle and a few other bits with epoxy.

Ignore the mess there, I had troubles with clogging paint gun, pouring paint all over the place and generally with the mess in the garage.
Also have to keep the garage temperature above 10C with a barrel stove, as the ambient temp just dropped near freezing point.

The question is, should I paint the axle brown?
