are standard up to the task? any precautionary measures to be considered?? replacing hand brake spring kit and gear lever cable, anything else created probs that I should be checking /replacing. Cheers.

Driveshafts should be fine.
I recall just removing surface rust and using hammerite on the cv joint outers.
Most have removed the handbrake and shoes completely.
Some grids are not flat though. As a minimum replace those springs definitely.

We suffered with the driveshafts coming undone, easily fixed with thread lock. Gear cables a must change! just for ease of selecting gears!!
Lose the Handbrake! One less thing to go wrong!
May i suggest throttle pedal too? we found a fix, but a few suffered this season with them breaking.
Cheers.
