Made some progress:

Removed the steering rack.



Cleaned it up, all looked OK, so I replaced the rubber bellows and the tie rod ends.



Then I moved to the rear section. In order to get the brake lines, I removed the transmission support.



Now I got better access to clean up that area.



Blasted and powder coated the support, and installed new mounts.



Next was the exhaust system. Since all the bolts were beyond unbolting, it had to come out in one piece.



Here it is.



I managed to get all nuts off without damaging any studs. Just on one flange the complete stud cam out.







Continue with cleaning under the rear fenders.





More stuff to remove. It's amazing how some parts are really nice, and other look like crap.



Got the heater flaps out without breaking the 6mm studs.



The starter must come out as well.



That thing looks like it was on the bottom of the ocean for 100 years.



Well, it looks like I got carried away a bit. The scope just extended a bit.



This way I can get all cleaned up much better, and more too. LOL



In order to get rid of some parts, I started to assemble the front end.



Getting there, struts are in.



The dust shields are powder coated.



Looks almost complete again.



The front hubs are ready with new bearings and seals.



Hubs are on.



The calipers are blasted, cleaned and baked. Just need to get the new powder in, and they will be coated.



To be continued.

Cheers
Engelbert

That seems like more than just "suspension" refresh! Looks great.

Made some progress, besides some other stuff I had to do.

Transmission is cleaned up.



Engine is on the stand now, and I started to remove all the parts around to clean up.



A lot of dirt back here.



Interesting, the nut at the left, was missing form the engine support. I didn't realize this with the engine installed.



It's amazing what can be found at the bottom in the engine support.



Now I understand why there was no nut. The stud was broken, and in there just like that all the time.



A pile of parts to be cleaned, repaired, or replaced.



Taking of the shroud and harness.



The acellerator linkage has seen better days. I will zinc plate the small parts, powder coat the plate, and get some new bushings.



I got the engine cleaned up a bit. In the picture it looks like as if there are some cracks in the crank casing.



I also started to clean up the engine harness.



To be continued

Cheers
Engelbert

Looks like you removed the undercoating? If so what did you use. I’ve found running a torch over the rubbery mess fist helps get big chucks off quickly. The of course the final cleanup always sucks!!
