    And take plenty of pics - if I can find enough manual bits, I may look at converting my car to a proper box!

    hehe, thanks

    well, i tried to keep going, but the heavens opened up... i am now completly soaked... ill wait 30 mins see if it dies down a bit, however i think thats all i can do for today..

    I must have spent about 30 mins alone trying to get the prop shaft off and about 1hr trying to get the nut of the drivers side srive shaft!! argh...

    Anyhoo, prior to the heavens opening up, I managed to get everything off the car, other than the transfer box and gearbox. ive got a few more tips, and additions to dickytim's article.. as I found some easier ways of doing things, so ill add my points once the jobs completed..

    Well spotted, those are ineed the pages from the article stuck to the window
