Suspension overhaul

I found that a trolley jack under the lower wishbone was all I needed to compress the spring until I got the lower ball joint off then with the jack lowered the spring came out no problem - fitting a new spring was done by reversing the procedure

UK-Italy-UK

Why buy a car for the trip - why not use a Scim. Been down that way a number of times in a 6A, GTC, SS1 ( various ) Sabre and last time in our MB. In all of our trips only had one problem when the 6As alternator would not produce full power so could not drive it in the dark and when the rad fan came...

Coupe headlamp covers - order complete.

MY first thought is to fix it to the headlight bezel in some way then as the bezel is wing nutted from the rear it would be pulled into position - not got past my first thought though as our Coupe has its engine and GB removed at the moment.

Springs... 2.5" 2.25" whats the difference

The original springs were never much good and did not last long which is why uprated springs are better and adjustable shockers to adjust the ride softness/hardness.

You have to remove the bumpers on the 5s as they are connected to the chassis - not sure about the 6's but don't think they need to come off

GTC upper ball joint

There are a number of Co's that sell a selection of boots - I'm not sure that the selection I bought was from the Co that I gave the example of. Not had any problems fitting a new boot but cannot remember if I have done a top ball joint.

TSM - Bringing it back.... slowly

I lifted the body off our 5A and left everything in place - only problem was the rear electrics were wound around the chassis so I had to cut hem to get the body off - don't forget to disconnect the speedo cable. Should be easier lifting the 6 body as its not locked into the rear chassis as the 5s a...

Derusting damper mounting bracket

Weld a plate over the open ends - drill and tap the top so you can fill the void with waxoil or similar ( oil is no good as the seams are not sealed ) - fit and forget - did it to our Coupe brackets over 20 years ago

Check what colours the wires are connected to it and look at the circuit diagram for them - is there not a part number on it
