After losing my TB48 to thieves馃が I've brought a 1998 TD42 Dx wagon.

Had 495000ks on the clock and pretty average in the pannels and paint department.

I won't bang on about being lied to about a few things at the time of purchase but was quite surprised to see half of the drivers side rear radius bush mount snapped off the diff and floating arround in the rear draws馃槄

That'll teach me for viewing a car at night and taking people at face value馃槄

Found some other things while I was there.. incorrect front swaybar saddles, and some front brake callipers that looked excessively rubbed.. apparently the alloys didn't clear by much at all..

Not sure if the photos will stick.. first time trying.

Ive had the car for just over a month and have since.. replaced the callipers, removed the swaybar for now and found a replacement front housing which I've painted and installed

While doing the front end swapped centres to 4.6s air locked rear and lokka front that I had sitting arround.

I also removed the alloys and put my 315,75,16 Nitto trail grapplers on it.. replaced the spare carrier that was missing and installed a spacer so the spare fits..

Good progress!
Do those alloy wheels have any manufacturer make or model written on them?
So we know what won't fit.

Unfortunately no.. there a 15" alloy with 0 offset. No manufacturers details.. if I had a bet they would be a Chinese wheel..
