Clever fix for that irritating problem Carsten. :yellow: FWIW, my solution was to use one of those white nylon square plug nuts that hold mini headlamps in place. And a self tapping panhead screw + washer. It's designed for square holes and is split at the back so it expands when the screw goes in, ...
And to add yet another wrinkle, what about tyre diameter? Mine are SP Sports which I believe are slightly bigger than Michelins or Pirellis...and isn't EE50 currently running on low profile 205s?
Geoff, I have found that the best way to deal with the matter of parts prices is to forget what I paid as quickly as possible, and above all not to keep any kind of running total of the cost of the restoration....
And Mark, no I didn't get any specs with the springs, just the statement (delivered with some considerable conviction) that they would do the job. Which they do.
I got just under 8" (7 15/16) to bottom of tie plate. No lip as it's the Rob Beere alloy plate with a tow hole (for towing other less-reliable makes of car when they break down you understand). https://i.postimg.cc/Y24pgR3F/IMG-20190505-184139-1.jpg Geoff, that mark on the front wing is merely a scr...

No wonder you are having problems fitting the switch Phil. It doesn't go anywhere near the hinge....it sits at the top of the A post, near the base of the windscreen. It sticks out sideways and bears on a small oblong plate fixed to the inside of the door.
On the bubble wrap point, I'd just repeat what the guys at TT (now Concours Refinishing) told me - don't get it anywhere near your car. Their theory was that the bubbles contain some kind of corrosive gas that leaches out. I haven't researched it, but from bitter experience they assured me it will d...
