    Oil Service today, cold fingers for once i did not mind the hot filter and ex manifold on my arms.
    I keep a works record, cant be doing with reciepts, service items are always LR or Mann.
    I ran a higher frequency oil change when i first got it as it had not been looked after or maintained for a while, then settled into annual oil servicing etc.

    Just ordered new;
    • Brake master cylinder (TRW)
    • Brake compensating bias valve
    • Another reel of Kunifer (cupro-nickel) brake pipe
    So new front end brake actuation and lines, thus completing the entire brake line system, with braided instead of flexi etc.
    Pics of skinned knuckles to follow of course.....

    Just eying up your list and remembered you used oem rubber for the bushes. I’d also prefer this on mine! I assume you have a press in your workshop? Did the a frame arm bushes etc need a lot of welly to get in? Cheers

    @resto_d1
    Actually in the end I used supa pro Poly Blues on all of A Frame with a Lemforder ball joint, same for front and rear Radius arms.
    Panhard I pressed out and in myself.The terrafirma Reds for the panhard were total junk and swapped to Supa pro Blue, burnt out the old rubber ones and used a Lidl's air hammer to push out the old metal sleeves, worked a treat, even with my asthmatic compressor, then a vice and plenty of lube to slip em in twas a doddle.
    Finished all in Corroless glass paint using closest match for colour all round etc
    I found the ride I was after with the Supa Pro Blues, but they not cheap, i guess you get what you pay for etc, all one piece as well, so silly split poly's that create a mid ridge in the sleeve etc. I got the arms as refurbs and had the chap who refurbs and paints them pop in the bushes. he did say he would buy my old ones but then dropped the price he would pay for them, no biggy, but ****ed me off etc, cant fault his work, but his approach to business is questionable etc. Then sold my old ones as ripe for refurb etc. Very pleased with result, more pics of fitting earlier in this thread etc.

    thanks very much. I’d leant towards super pros as when delving oem bushes aren’t what they were. I’ve got a little knock which I suspect will be a frame. If I can get through mot in March without cost I’ll get the set ordered and make a start

    A Frame was easy enough, all bolts came out after over night soaking etc, the actual Ball joint was a bugger but thats due to TD5 access and tank etc, again see earlier in this thread etc
