I read that the rear cross member is subject to rot due to the carpet padding foam that they used for support

On my 501 this rusted away with a hole on either side - and that was back in the early / mid 1980's. 

Great to see another elite being restored - they are brilliant looking cars.

I'm not mad about trunnions either Mike so I modified my lower arms to take spherical bearings to use the trunnionless uprights as well (I didn't like the Canley bot-on set-up):






Enjoying following your fabulous work!
