Re: E type reaction plate

You dont need to have the torsion bars and plate in place for the car to be moved to paint.
Just swap the dampers out with some steel bars and it will hold the weight.

Just done it my self :)

So to conclude it can work without the tank and there is some scenarios where it can be useful like if the engine died and at the same time propshaft broke so that the wheels cannot turn engi...

Re: S2 vacuum tank.

Is this tank really useful unless you want to brake while applying throttle?
Need the space for an oil breeder tank so thinking about ditching it.

Re: Hello everyone!

If there is no visible rust I would recommend delivering to a detailer. From the pictures this is not that bad and can pretty good after a professional have had their time with it. Also if there is dents they can mostly be fixed without any traces of it afterwards. 1owner and original paint in good ...

Re: Is there a vent on S1 sills?

If whats written on the page is correct I wish I did not click that link.
Are ALL of the outer silles out there crap and does this radius change the look of the car that much?

Re: Lucas 608 interior mirror

No, because the glass i tapered so its not just a matter of fitting av replacement mirror.
Thats why I suspect the replica mirror (not made by lucas) is differend as well.

Lucas 608 interior mirror

Hi I have a Lucas 608 mirror that is in pretty good shape other than the mirror glas. Since I have not been able to find anyone that can re-silver the glas I`m wondering if the replica mirror sold by various suppliers are usable as a spare part? From the pictures it looks the same, but I`m not sure....
