Tracked down Peter Alder to get a really good wheel alignment done after vert swaped out the top mounts. Front lowered by 10mm, as the old  top mounts were completely tucker. Also got the camber updated as we are no longer struggling to tuck the wheels thanks to mr zender. Drive and steers awesome Peter is the man.

Bumpers sorted after shortening them slightly, and ready to refit.

Saw a link on the Kamei buckets that I have in the spyder, first picture I have seen anywhere.. Early 70s, mine are the middle ones, but with houndstooth pattern centres. Wonder how these into the Rocco.

Visited Mr Kanter to get a minor defect in one wheel arch that had popped its bracket sorted. Making tricky repair look easy as always. Had a good look around his current range of projects. Lots on there as usual.

Update. Mr Kanter fabricated seat bases because it was eazier and faster and he can make pretty much anything. Also reat strut brace fitted and a 16v tb on modified mk1 kjet inlet that has been lying arojnd for ages. More air equals more fuel and power. Quite noticable and works well in combo with the large cam.  Zoom zoom.

Has been in hiding at work with Mads due to new project at home that destroyed its garaging.  Next project is figuring out an extension of the remaining garage to make space and hopefully squeeze in a car stacker.
