Drum front swivel hubs x2

Howdy

I need a pair of front hubs. Preferably with steering arm and drum brake backing gubbins attached.

Surely someone has a set from a disc upgrade.

Mine have become lost.....grrr :roll: ...and are holding up subframe and ultimately the car rebuild.

Help.

Cash waiting.

Re: subframes - paint or powder

Because this is ireland the quotes to dip/blast and powdercost were gouging.

So its eastwood paints. Front is ready to go in paint this week. 1/3rd of the cost. I suppose its 50 years old and in good nik. Proper paint job and she will be fine.
