"I thought I'd just put the brakes together and drive it"...

Lots of progress. :D Pepe, my car used to leak everywhere but new seals and a bit of sealants and taking off and refitting has basically stopped almost all of them. Where water does still come in, eg rear hatch frame, I created a path of sealant on the rear ‘bulkhead’ on the inside to take the water...

Rear Trailing Arms - Poly bush or rubber bush ?

She's going in the garage, on a lift this Friday to check but if it is , do i poly bush them or replace with the rubber (metallistic ?) ty...

Newest Newbie

Good luck and welcome. I've had my 5a for a few years now and probably the most enjoyable / rewarding car I 've ever owned.

The Doctors Coupe - SRE 353G

I fitted a decent wide band sensor and electronic gauge. Not cheap, but really pleased. Its permanently fitted and tells me constantly lean / rich under power etc.
