MOT changes

Right, I think the problem may be that the cars are NOT insured, AND all I want to do is get them VHI BEFORE I get them back on the road AND get everything in place ready for when I DO want to re register them as Tax Exempt AND VHI

Spring has Sprung

Dave Caswel`s Sabre rear springs both snapped last year.

Probably because someone had welded a steel ring to the bottom of them to try lift the ride height. :roll:

Will photo the one I still have and post later.

Bit busy at moment trying to get some MB blower fans working correctly :dh

Stainless Steel Door hinge mountings

The se5 onwards all use the same size of slots and pitch.
Very early se5 used a swan neck hinge, all the rest are plain 45 degree bent.

Anyone out there know when the Coupe type door check mechanism was deleted, I can`t find reference in any of my factory manuals?.
