Stainless steel door frames

Hi all, Can anybody advise if these are still available? I understand the person who originally made the stainless steel frames had stopped and someone else had picked up the baton, but I’ve heard nothing more recently. My original frames are in a bit of a state now and I am quite urgently looking f...

Middlebridge suspension

Hi Graeme, Apologies I haven’t checked in for a few days so I missed your message – attached is a snapshot showing the product descriptions from the Harvey Bailey / Leda invoice. The part codes are the same as the codes on the silver labels in the photograph. The spring rates etc. are listed also. B...

Middlebridge suspension

Hi all, just a brief update on the “back to Bilstein” project: The issue of springs wads finally settled, which allowed progress to continue with the new-manufacture, original spec Bilstein suspension. The completed units are now finished and they were delivered this week. Absolutely delighted with ...

Middlebridge suspension

Hi all,

Progress continues with the Bilstein shocks. Harvey Bailey / Leda Suspension now have four original spec Bilstein units made to the Middlebridge drawings, but we are stuck on the rear springs. Can anyone offer any details? If not for the MB, then for the SE6?

MB Wing mirrors

Regarding Halfords, they send them away to have them custom manufactured according to your pattern or old mirror glass. So I guess any Halfords could be approached?

Middlebridge suspension

Hi all, Just an update here. I have been in discussions with Bilstein and Leda suspension about sourcing original spec Bilstein shocks and Faulkner springs. They have finally identified the Bilstein factory part numbers and original drawings, and they have confirmed that they are able to produce the...

MB Wing mirrors

Hi all, I have a set of mirrors I am working on currently (trying to set up a pair of direct replacements, FX4 taxi mirrors with heater panels as per MB originals). I found the simplest way to remove the glass from the plastic backing was to warm them in the oven. The melting point of the plastic ba...

Middlebridge suspension

Hi Peter,

Very interesting to hear. Are they the factory originals? Is there any way you could find out what specific Bilstein parts they are?

Middlebridge suspension

Hi Will, Thanks for the reply. Yeah in fact that scan of the parts catalogue was provided to Mick's site by myself! :-) I think the document was still very much a work in progress when Middlebridge folded - certainly a lot of sketches appear to be straight SE6B and don't show certain later MB mods. ...

Middlebridge suspension

Hi all, Can anyone provide specifications, details, part numbers etc. for the original factory fitment Middlebridge Scimitar suspension? I understand the cars came with Bilstein coilovers front and back, and these passed through Harvey Bailey Engineering for tuning tweaks to match them to the specif...

Under-bonnet light cover

Hi all,

The under-bonnet light, a sort of flattened clear plastic dome - anyone know what alterparts bin these originally came from? I'm guessing they're a standard component of something or other. Or alternatively does anyone have a spare...?

Cheers,

Graham

Hi all,

I am having the steering rack restored on my Middlebridge. There is a (G10 composite or similar?) thin, split bush inside the rack that needs replacing and I'm having a devil of a time finding a new one. Any pointers? Attached is a picture of the offending part...
