  1. You could try tridentracing.co.uk they might be able to help, they are a supplier to Motorsport teams and clubmen racers etc. Usually very helpful based by the main entrance to Silverstone last time I used them but have possibly moved to a new unit
  2. Heading towards Tring, looking very good, I was in work van going in the opposite direction
  3. Edpm rubber, can be bonded in layers, it's what I made a new diaphragm for my Discovery driver's seat when I suddenly found myself sitting on the floor😆
  4. Check out the wheel nuts that are available from Demon Tweeks
  5. I can't remember if this has been brought up on here, but could the rise in clots also be partly attributed to many people now working from home spending hours at a time on computers rather than getting up to speak to people in the office or sales reps that would go out and visit customers, it could just be a perfect storm of conditions combining to cause this.
  6. The drop links were supplied by Spyder who made the original lower front wishbone modification for me, I then carried out the Excel alteration after the trunnion snapping.the links are flat metal figure of 8 plate with cup washers welded both sides top and bottom.they bolt to the original mounting on the lower link and go through a hole in it to pick up the ARB the cups take the original ARB bushes from memory
  7. Hi Pete, the top wishbone links are rose jointed and adjustable for camber. The anti roll bar has a drop link from the lower wishbone, this is what helped when I broke the trunnion as the roll bar rubbed on the track rather than the bodywork, it just scuffed the cill and the wheel rattled around on the wheel arch.
  8. I've grafted the end of the Excel front lower link on to my Eclat ones this allows me to use the Toyota uprights and I've also got 310mm dia brake disks. I carried this work out after snapping a trunnion at Brands Hatch. I have to say the car still handled quite well with only 3 wheels and the ARB dragging on the track.
  9. Hi Clive you are probably right, it will most likely sit on my shelf indefinitely. If you would like it make me an offer, it's straight but could do with rubbing down and painting or powder coating. Regards Dan
  10. Hi I've just measured the channel holes centre to centre and it holds up 402mm which differs from the chassis details I have just posted. I have just lined it up with the one fitted to my S2 Eclat and it appears that it is the same so I believe that the chassis diagram is not correct. The spare one I have is from a S2 Eclat that I broke for spares for the race car so I know it's correct. Hope this helps
  11. Hi, I've got a diff reinforcement channel on the shelf, I can measure the cc of the holes as a comparison for you if you want. Re bolting the diff in tighten the front fixings first then the stud is shimmed to suit the chassis. I think it shows this in the workshop manual. With regards the diff cover, I would use non setting blue hylomar sealant on both surfaces, it allows for vibration. I know people say only apply to one side to allow easy removal, but how often do you intend on removing the cover? Ideally never once you have it fitted. Regards Dan
  12. Hi, do you have the brace bar that goes between the two long studs that the diff bolts on to, this is a strengthening part that was fitted to the later cars. Otherwise looking very smart
