Thanks Phil,

Appreciate your kind words. Dave did say he was doing you some bits.

What I do is turn up with stuff he doesnít know about and pull a sad face

He canít say no then

Next up was the rear subframe. Cleaned up by Dave, all the bolts were zinc plated and then Olive Drab.

Time for some rear diff action

As most on here will know, the go to guy for transmission is CliveW. I decided to give Clive an out of the blue PM and ask his advice. After some back and forth messages I decided to take a drive over to him with may RS diff in the boot. We then had a good hour or 2 chat about all things cars and engineering! Really really nice bloke, very very knowledgeable. The plan has always been to build the Evo from ground up. So I wanted to sort the transmission so its ready for the end result.

Clive worked his magic, I had everything super finished, shot peened and also had him put in extra plates for more grip. It will give some clunking on turns at low speed but according to Clive, tarmac grip could be up as much as 25% . The Rs diff doesn't come properly set up from the factory anyway, so with the extra plates, all the treatments and then Clives exacting set up this diff is top notch.

Getting the rear diff back in on my back was not the easiest. Its pretty heavy, but also getting it in and not scratching all the new paint was a pain. I only have 1 pic I was too busy doing the work to stop and do pictures!

I purchased some Snap On digital TQ wrenches which came in very handy on the rebuild. Great bits of kit.

That surface grinder he has in the background can make ridiculously thin shims
