Front off-side suspension

 Although time consuming I found this a quite satisfying activity (strange I know).
  1. Clean powder coat from wishbone tubes
  2. Copper grease the bush
  3. Start the insert with a large M10 bolt and washers
  4. Finish in the vice
  5. Grind crush tube to the total width of the wishbone plus 2 inserted bushes
  6. Copper grease the crush tube and push in with trusty M10

First two wishbones in place - at least temporarily as they will need to be removed to fit the side panels.
Tried to fit the upper ball joint but found sever resistance after only a couple of turns. I suspect it is powder coating in the threads. But I haven't got a tap of this size so will have to source one.
