Advice needed on noise from new Spax damper and mounting

Hi Gordini, the bushes in Spax do suffer from squishing quite quickly in service but as the loading is downwards on the lower mount and upwards on the top one, metal can be removed to provide clearance. It's not a very elegant engineering solution but does work ok.

Does Run Fast 351 Eventually!

Thanks for the comment, Big Cough😜! Good call David. I'll have the opportunity to have a look when I organise the family barbie party to part the body from chassis. I'm trying to design a two height trolley so the underside is accessible for repairs then lower it for the painter to reach the roof😳! ...

Does Run Fast 351 Eventually!

Loads more sanding down done, still trying to determine the lovely shade of colour. I've left a patch untouched as a reference for the painter, don't know whether that's going to be useful or not, what's the opinion on that? Epic raiding trip carried out to North Yorkshire with sons van and race tra...

PS the shocks didn't extend unless the spring is present. IE if you push them in they don't push themselves out ? is that normal
Some do cos they're pressurised wi' nitrogen or some such, others don't. Guess which costs more😡

Hi Victor. Had a few problems too this year while doing my Coupe and garage. Friends must be thinking I'm in denial due to my irreverent appearance but I'm determined to enjoy what I've got. Close family and friends know I live by the following:- "Ageing with attitude!" "Adventure before dimencia!" ...

Right, back to fitness after a minor repair op in 'orspital, the other bonnet hinge put up a real fight needing minor surgery as well! Since then it's been utterly boring, nowt but sanding down the body shell and stripping the original felt insulation. I must be about a third of the way through so a...

ScimFest autotest?

Hi Andy, if you've never done one, advice is "Chuffin' 'eck, that were fun!"

Couldn't use the Scim one year so tried it in a Moggie Minor, what a hoot! It don't matter if you're bad or good, it's the laughs that make it. It can also be a half way step to Sprinting/Hill-climbing!
