  1. Advice please .

    Is there a certain sequence to assembling the front suspension ? It looks like if I just have the dampers and lower wishbones in place ( i.e. no upright/top wishbone etc ) the lower wishbone will be in contact with the chassis . The springs ( 2.5inch) are a bugger to compress .


    Also what is this part ?

    Thanks in advance.

    I was lucky enough to crew for Gerry and spent many a great night with him in the twilight of his career all over Europe at various meetings.

    I often drove him to and from his hotel and had dinner with him on top of spending race days with him, a lovely bloke.

    Unbeatable behind the wheel in the cars we ran, would often qualify slowly to allow a spectacle where he would fight to the front, then slow down to give the rest of the field a chance to catch up again and keep the crowds entertained.

    Had anyone and everyone drop by at race meetings to give him their best wishes, lots of household names were accommodated for a brew and to share stories from back in the day.

    He passed not long after my dad and it was a real double blow, he was such a nice fella.

    Bit of Esprit content, he knew I had an S2 back then.

     Mentioned the under steer, never knew he had the racing turbo until years later, we spoke more about TVR’s which we also both had.

    He helped with some of the work I did on it, his turbo went to Mike Brewer after he passed I believe.

    Lots of interesting stories about ACBC, Delorean, the jet set etc. He was one of a group of guys just enjoying his racing towards the end like Barry Williams and the Lanfranchi’s who were on the circuit back in the late 90’s, lovely guys and enjoyed the craic.

    You don’t realise what you have until it’s gone ☹️


    Did you ever work on the Marsh Plant Aston's ? My mate has RO2 and 4
