  1. Very easy to work on and a few small bits of rust, corners of the doors on the outside skin, inner looks very good, bottom front corner of near side rear wing, again inner part is still very good and the battery tray area has corroded so would leak into drivers footwell, I sealed it up so no water ingress when I cleaned it but you can buy a panel to replace it🙂. From searching there are only 8 GL models left on the road in the UK. I'm doing this up for my eldest daughter to learn to drive in.

  2. Has the tank been repainted at some time? Has the paint bonded it where it sits on the grp. From memory you have done all that is required to remove it. Is it possible that it has rusted to the sound deadening material that from memory is on it.put a spreader in the boot and try prying the tank upwards carefully

  3. Hi John, the show sounds great, but I have a feeling those dates won't work for us as I believe that is possibly still during school time, my wife works in a school and is only able to have time off during the school holidays. I won't write it off just yet as it is possible that she won't be working in a school next year. Your offer of secure storage to enable us to tour a lot easier is much appreciated.

    Thanks again

    Regards Dan

  4. Hi John, hope your trip to pick up the m100 went well. I could be interested in a trip to Scotland but would have to tow the race car as it's currently not road legal. It would also depend upon when the show is and my work commitments and if I could combine it with a bit of tourism whilst I'm there, my wife has always wanted to go to Scotland.

    Let me know when and where and I'll think about it.

    Regards Dan

  5. 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

  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 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

     

     

     

  8. 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
