Common rot point, sadly. As said, replacement brackets are available to fix it (as long as you have a good welder).
ok great! Any idea where I can purchase replacement parts? Tried to find a thread on the axel brackets but it comes up a blank

TSM - Bringing it back.... slowly

Thanks for all your comments. Tonight I attempted to remove the radius arms in preparation to replace the bushes however have stumbled upon a HUGE disaster! Now bear with me as I can't find the technical name for the part that I am trying to explain but the steel mount that the lower radius arm conn...

I don’t think I’d fit poly bushes to the rear trailing arms on a road car


So if I stick with traditional rubber bushes where can I source these? Are they readily available?

Superpro Bush Kit - Review

Hi all, My SE6a require new bushes all round. I have seen the Superpro Bush Kit listed on fleabay. Has anyone had any experience of this kit? How is the quality? Is it good value? The full kit costs £369.89 and from what I can see will include everything that I need. I know little about the spec/qua...

Rust epoxy is expensively rebadged Jotun by the way!
Can you recommend a Jotun epoxy paint that can be applied to steel? I have looked at the Jotun website and they have hundreds of products that seem to do the same thing!

TSM - Bringing it back.... slowly

Hi all, The chassis is finally back from the welders and all major bits of rust have been cut and replaced with new steel (only took 9 months however the garage worked on it between jobs so was incredibly cheap). Before I put the body back on I want to sort out a few other jobs. Firstly I want to pa...

Ok so after continuous failure from my body shop to complete the required outrigger welding I decided to take it somewhere else. Within two days of arriving at the new garage the body had been taken off and the full extent of the rust had been exposed, luckily it wasn’t as bad as I thought. Only the...

According to the Workshop Manual I need to remove the front and rear bumpers (point 11 on extract below), having looked at other threads I've seen others lift the body with both bumpers in place. Can someone confirm that I do need to remove the bumpers to lift or ca...
