Hi All,

Well, I had a great outing to Arundel this morning - I really need to move out of London as the ST luved the west sussex roads (y)
Collected my ST170 calipers/sliders/discs, I know they look pretty grubby, but the sliders are free and I've got rebuild kits already. #
Hopefully can get fully stripped at the weekend to get into the sandblasters and then rebuild

Also, got another set of wheels:

This is the worst of the lot - so I'm quiet happy ( refurb can wait until all the other jobs on the car are done (june 2025)

My new lower grille arrived today:

Wood Textile Rectangle Grey Flooring


I had planned on cutting a 2" hole in it for the cold air feed, on ebay it looked black, so I assumed it had been painted, but its mint so I may have to rethink the hole thang ( I don't mind cutting holes in poor quality stuff, but to destroy a mint piece) hmmmm.

Hi All,
Got some more goodies last night ( posted on wrong thread by mistake)

Flush Team dynamics tyre valves
Automotive tire Wood Hardwood Indoor games and sports Flooring


jacking point covers

Gadget Material property Ac adapter Font Cable


Tonight I got in to find :

Rear Hub Spacers

Wood Gas Nickel Composite material Auto part


Got a load of work to do this weekend, hopefully can get new shocks fitted all round

Not sure how difficult spacers will be to fit, if its too much I'll probably leave them until I do the rear axle powerflex bushes and rear brake lines.

Hi,
Well I bit the bullet and bought a set, £43 delivered I think is a good price.
The only thing I'm thinking is wether I can refit the bit you cut out to fill the whole

Have to have a play when it arrives :)

70 quid, ouch. On second thoughts I'm not sure I really need one!
LOL :ROFLMAO:, yeah Jimmy I agree, not cheep, but tbh compared to everything else I've seen for much more I think its ok.
Fitting is simple, 4 self tapers into the handbrake surround, I put double sided tape in first (probably not needed though)

Its not a "perfect match" for the leather, but pretty good.
I'm hoping to see if I can run usn chargers into it for my phones
