didnt manage to start till late.
i have got all the brake callipers and discs off.
and just started taking the rear seats out to get at the top suspension mount.
i will hopefully finish by tomoz.

in the end i bought the parts from a garage down by makro and the bowling complex in Nantgarw, called "LDS motor factors" if u need any parts i recommened ringing this place 1st.
