  1. I didn't see the bottom spring plates, I'll have a proper look this time. I use AVS and classic parts, occasionally LLL aswell. Thanks for the info.
  2. I will need some parts as I want to build the fronts off the car then swap over to try to cut fitting time. In the meantime the back has come off today, will defo need the rear bottom spring plates as they're a bit grubby.
  3. A parcel was delivered yesterday......
  4. Great job and thanks for posting up your experiences, I'm about to swapout the rear beam and the Koni kit. Not looking forward to bleeding the brakes though. Keep us updated.
  5. Yeah dash out was very rewarding in the end. Pilkington Classics for the screen and no it doesn't have the Green band, I prefer it without to be honest. I replaced every piece of foam whilst the dash was out, I wanted a thorough job doing considering the size of the overall task.
  6. The cover looks better painted, matches the manifold.
  7. I've been pretty busy since my last post, swapped the heater matrix and refurbed the heater box flaps and removed all the old wiring foam and re-wrapped. Windscreen was also replaced, was dreading the condition underneath but needn't have worried, my screen fitter hadn't see one in better condition so really happy with that. I've also spent hours and hours under the bonnet, photos for a later date. Currently working on rear beam refurb and front subframe etc.
  8. They look great, worth more 😂
  9. Looking very nice Chris. Is that the cover you had off me?
  10. There's been quite a few on ebay in the last 12 months, I bought a set at £68 so yeah these are a good buy
  11. Lots of good work there Chris, will be great when it's done.
  12. I'm afraid I won't be needing one now as I've managed to repair the loom I have. Can you.please remove me from the list. Thanks
  13. All the details are on the 1st page, £90 with a £25 refund when you return yours. Thanks Dave
  14. I've got a couple of these ready to post. Thanks Dave
  15. I had the same issue with a VDO pump but sent it back for a full refund. I wished I'd kept it and swapped it into the existing and uncracked swirl pot. I did this with a new pump only I bought and that failed because of water in the old fuel in the tank, pillock! I ended up buying the 4 bar pump from Heritage which interestingly has a clip together swirl pot and no screws. So if it were me I'd keep the VDO pump.
  16. Can't add his profile here without it throwing up an error.
  17. Scott Wright on Facebook, here is his last message to me 31st July. Screens now in stock £110+vat pick up at one of our branches
  18. Got my screen from here https://www.pilkington.com/en-gb/uk/Automotive/Classic-cars-home
  19. Also in Notts, I used these https://midlandsvehicleglass.co.uk/about Did a great job and didn't use the spacers I bought, really took his time to give me a 1st class job, very happy. I supplied the windscreen. You can have the spacers I have if you want them. Dave
  20. I use it occasionally but not enough to be honest. Must try harder.....
  21. Hi, yes I can help with the BMC bracket, drop me a PM if interested. Dave
  22. Thanks Matt and mooG60, I'll most likely go with Lemforder as my car won't be doing mega miles. I've got a spare beam too that I've started stripping.
  23. Hi, where did you buy the bushes? I've seen genuine VAG for £67 each. Thanks.
