    The FV430 CES includes a preset torque wrench for the wheel bolts.

    Nuts, lovely new nuts. Cheap enough and as people suggest not worth the hassle of reusing old ones. We will also torque the road wheels up to the recommended 70lbf ft as the manual states.

    Gosh, over a month since I posted something. Not that we haven't been doing anything more not much visable progress.

    Have cleaned back the distribution box and the terminal leads and that is all fitted back in. Now just need a replacement dash panel to wire everything up.

    Made up some replacement stowage straps today. Gave the end clips a wire buff and a nice coat of aluminium paint. Plus cleaned up and painted the remaining fuel tank cover nuts and washers.
