Current state of the car. Not much original Metal left. but the work is just brilliant!IMG-20150219-WA0009 - Kopie

3) While waiting for parts and work i decided to disassemble the Steering column. Before:P1130928 - Kopie

Almost finished. If someone can tell me how the bearings are mounted into the housing and how i can remove them, this would be very helpful. Will get the housings sandblasted and powdercoated and don’t think the bearings like to have sand and heat inside. also the service manual, haynes and other books only mention “replace bearings if worn” but not how to… Any advice i’m very thankful for 🙂

Hope the zinc-plating parts will return early next week and another delivery goes to the powdercoating company 😉
