SS1 rear coilovers.

New springs or retaining the original springs? The originals are about 14" free length from memory so unlikely to go on your new units without compression

SS1 rear coilovers.

The rear coil over assemblies are removed whole. Compressing the springs to dismantle those assemblies is a whole different kettle of fish

Crosby clearout - inlcuding most of an 1800ti

Spare wheel bolt I can do. All the straps I have are ropey, QRG does new ones for a fair price. Will try to see what I can arrange with collection Darryl. Estate car had disgraced itself this week with a rather failed MOT followed by an unrelated death rattle at one of the wheels. Unless anyone else...

So long as someone else has a trailer. Persuade them to get you a suspicious few miles from the venue then call the break down recovery service. Get yer money's worth

Wrapping

Was going to say the same re vinyl door squares. Although whilst mine came off after 2 years without any damage, I would caution that old and compromised paint would likely be well plucked by a high tack vinyl! Car covers and vinyl wrap are two different things. Well applied vinyl is another adhered...

Wrapping

All this conjecture and no anecdotal evidence. Helped eldest bro wrap his Cayman on the driveway. Took longer than expected but it was a learning exercise. We were never looking for a pro finish and he is now satisfied that his white Porsche is red! For a couple hundred quid in materials I say give ...

Caveat emptor.
Let's hope someone does something interesting with it.

More importantly your fuel return pipe appears to be original Reliant grade non reinforced barely petrol worthy grade. Do change it please!

Gaz Shocks for SS1.

Alas I thought I had spoken with you via PM regarding springs previously but realise it was someone else in the midst of a 1600 restoration new to the forum.
Should have popped up with my offerings earlier.

Will be in touch regarding the piston.

Gaz Shocks for SS1.

To add insult to injury you could have saved 6 quid buying uprated front springs from me. As for the QRG 190s up front, 10lbs would make naff all difference. As for the rear I would go with a minimum of 200lbs at rear. Ride quality is largely down to shock absorber settings rather than small changes...

Excuse the delay and hardly precision effort on measurements (proper devices are in the workshop, steps / cold / lazy).
Should see you right enough though.
