Strut


Nice work - totally inspired by this.

How did you go about stripping the suspension set up down to be able to remove the strut?? I assume you needed spring clamps etc. Any info or tips you have on the strip down would be greatly appreciated and please share if you can.

Nice one

Compared to other suspension set up’s I’ve dismantled it is very simple, the coil spring has negligable stored energy once off the car although I did put compressors on whilst I undid the top nut. When I put the new top mount on I simply compressed the unit by hand to get the nut started.

Torque wrench is a necessity as it should be with most work on these cars.

There was a days panic when my hub went MIA in Yodel’s van but arrived at lunchtime today.

Probably have a week off and start the final corner next week.

Cheers, Paul

I’ll be the first to point out I got my front discs on the wrong way round, they are sided left/right, in my haste I just opened the first box, cleaned it and fitted it. On closer inspection I had them wrong way round, fortunately there was no fluid in the system so it was a simple matter of whipping the calipers off and swapping discs over Embarassed

Loving your work and attention to detail Paul !!

You should look at renaming this thread, as I skipped over it several times and nearly missed out on satisfying my cleaning OCD!

One thing that is making my stock OCD tick though, are those caliper decals... what

Looking forward to your next update!

Thanks Tony, I wasnt aware the title could be changed, but I have now done just that.

Regarding the calipers I have always been OCD for originality as yourself, I allowed myself this little change, if I loose sleep I can always redo them Laughing

inspirational thread.

What did you initially use to just start the process. i.e cleaning out the arches and getting the general grub off?
RFR or similar?

Cheers

Jay

I would guess Bish was sitting with his feet up !

The dabs of colour denote the poundage of the spring, if you look at the part numbers on PET it actually gives the colours for each model/spec, fortunately my daughters nail varnish collection stocked the correct shades Grin

Hi Jay, once the arch liners are out brush as much of the dirt out dry, then it was a case of raiding my wifes cleaning supplies , Mr Muscle, Flash with bleach, basically any dillutable cleaning product just to wash off dirt. Once dried out you can then go at it with WD40 and nail brushes or tooth brushes. Lots of cheap microfibre cloths, use once and throw away. Clean the residue away with panel wipe or brake cleaner and then I use autoglym show shine to give it some protection.

Cheers, Paul
