GTC Tonneau cover

The Tonneau is in place when driving to keep out draft and small amounts of rain, with the vertical part either up or down depending on the temperature. When the car is parked the top cap is put on in case of rain, so the flap would cover the mesh to ...

I also have Vredestein Sportrac 195/70/14 excellent tyres. Changed the handling completely from the odd b...

Probably not. Scimitar springs are 2.5” and 2.25”
Didn't know they were measured internally, then probably not

Minimum spring diameter 4” though?
I did wonder that, I measured one of mine about 90mm, do you not think somehow it would work?

IIRC I needed to get the offside working but I may be wrong on that it was a few years ago. Yes, it would be only...
