    Sand paper, from the roughest to the smoothest wet an dry then autoglym metal polish, then belgom polish.

    They look good but up close there is the odd bit of pitting but very little.
    I am very happy with them!

    So ok it's been a while since I started this but I haven't done much to the caddy.
    Tho I do have an update tho.

    Went to England and picked up a caddy shell and a s**t load of parts. In fact it filled a 7.5tonne lorry.

    Pictures to follow

    Yeah that's it, the colour is way better up close.

    I'm just starting to build it up now. I've noticed the leaf springs are fitted strange.
    It has 2 leaves on each side, on the d/s the bottom lead has a hole at the back and the p/s one has a whole at the front.
    I don't think that is right, anyone any ideas what way round it should be?

    So finally got some work done to the caddy, removed the leaf springs and fitted poly bushes. The one in the chassis too, which was horrible to get out.
    I then built up the rear shoes, with new wheel cylinders and fitting kit. Not 100% sure they are right but the seam to be working ok on the bench.
    Got myself a new set of drums and bearings. Fitted the bearings and have the drums ready for fitting.
