Hi , well i was supposed to get an mot and be driving my 1275 coupe now, then i decided 13" wheels, then disc brake conversion from drums on the front, led to bigger master cylinder and removal of the front subframe and another fitting to fit a front mount tank , im starting to see why they spend so little time on the road !
Has anyone got diagrams of the pre 82 bodyshell and the post 82 shell as i am hoping to compare aches .
I hope to have swapped the front subby and renewed brake pipes fitted fuel tank and i decided different pedals and steering coloum as the pedals are really offset to the left and so is the steering , its like sitting at an angle , cant be doing with that , hope to finish by sunday......... lol

Nice!

Though I had some bad experiences with poly bushes with negative chamber. It lasted not quite long. I prefer offset bushes on my cars.

Thanks had a look at the bushes , seems like it makes sense, will probably get a set if/when the poly bushes start to look suspect.
