Sabra/e red colour info

Hello,
A Sabra Gt owner who is restauring the body in Switzerland asks me if I know the colour code ( RAL or ICI ) of the typical Original red of a Sabra or Sabre 4 . It is a red with some orange shade when in the sun.
Thanks for any info. Jacques

shock absobers f an r replacement

Change of info Gaz shocks Hello all, I have now a clear picture of how the Gaz shocks were before being installed. The innen bushes are much longer than de eye of the shock ( like on my NOS original shock) absorber. So they will be fixed by the bolt(s). That only leaves my question about the poly bu...

shock absobers f an r replacement

Hello,
Yes, there is number on it, maybe just a production number? Here it is: 4054730.
This is a front shock of course.
I checked the AVO site. Some more investigation needed, but at least the SE360 has a rim/pan on top and bottom for the spring.
Kind regards, Jacques

shock absobers f an r replacement

Hello, The shocks on a TR type suspension will probably be different, but who knows. The Sabra/e' has flailing arms as the early Sabre 6's, maybe even early SE4 scimitars. The adjustable ones, I meant adjustable damping, like on Spax, these are not allowed any more, but info is welcomed. Basicly I n...

Only fixed with 1 bolt in te door and slid into a small triangular retainer on the other side. When door is resistant the handle comes out of the retainer quite easily. I attac...

door handle retainers

Hello, Problem with the door handles retainers on Sabra GT 4808 . Door handles come off , and out of the retainers, I think because of the car expanding (!!) in this Summer's heat and doors squeesing. Anyone has two retainers for sale, on 4808 the "zamac" metal broke. I think of reinforcing the hand...
