  1. There is a shaped Threaded Captive Plate, if striped you can tap up the next size or go metric. The original threads are 5/16" UNF (1/2" AF spanner) you can re-tap 3/8" UNF (9/16" AF Spanner) but you may have to drill out the hinge holes slightly M10 might be the Best Metric size but not 100% sure on this?

  2. https://www.regtransfers.co.uk/search/platedetails/vjl1 How much?!!!😬
  3. I'm presuming the number plate was included in the sale too? Must be worth £5k plus on its own to the right person.
  4. Is this a new World record Price for a Vitesse at Auction? Sold for £23,500 plus Premium https://www.historics.co.uk/buying/auctions/2021-04-17/
  5. I Had a quote for my Clutch Master off Dave recently £65 for genuine N.O.S. Girling Probably half the price on Flea-bay for a Chinese one but how long will it last?
  6. Try a guy called Dave Kingerley, link below. https://longbridgemotorspares.co.uk/
  7. Another recommendation for Newtons Carpets, Excellent fit and good Quality too.
  8. To clarify my understanding: I used Koni 80-1717 dampers on the rear of my old Vitesse when using the top extension brackets, my car was still fitted with Rotoflex couplings, some modifications are required though to the Bushes? The Open and closed lengths on the 80-1717 Dampers are different as shown in the photo's by Trigolf above, presumably the new Gaz ones are a similar open/closed lengths to the 80-1717 Koni's (218mm closed & 296mm open). Clive states that the Koni Dampers specified for the standard Swing axle suspension when using the the original top mounts will w
  9. Spotted this on E-Bay, what a lovely car? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Triumph-Dolomite-Sprint-Auto-Excellent-Condition/224393847054?hash=item343eea610e:g:l6gAAOSwaltgVOwT
  10. The above image is pinched from a similar recent post and shows the suspension action using the original Chassis top mounts and also the extension brackets for the lower wishbone suspension. Any mathematicians out there who can work out damper travel between the two?
  11. That's a good question? I know when using the extension brackets the standard rear shocks bottom out, but when mounted on the original chassis top mounts they may well be ok with the Lower wishbone Roto-flex suspension, the extension bracket are used to help the damper clear the Roto-flex couplings but won't be needed with CV joints which is presumably what you are fitting? I suppose it all comes down to the geometry of the suspension with the lower Wishbone Roto-flex type rear suspension, camber is greatly reduced compared with the early Swing axle suspension, but I'm not sure about
  12. Good luck with the sale, I wish I had more Garage space?
  13. See the attached Article from this week's CCW, who else runs LED's for Brake & Indicators, I do?
  14. I wouldn't be so sure? Are you using the chassis mount extension brackets or the original Wheel arch mounted brackets? If you are using the Chassis Extension brackets make sure the open/closed lengths are compatible, I used Koni 80-1717 Dampers designed for a Classic Mini, these have an open length of 296mm and a closed length of 218mm They do need a few Modifications to make them fit though, send me a PM and I can explain if this is the route you want to go down with your GT6?
