Re: Anyone know this Elite?

I've seen photos of this car before but I can't remember when. The front chassis crossmember is a characteristic of a Spyder restoration - probably in the '80s. Interesting car.

Re: New member - Excel SA

Wow - it's starting to look like an Excel again. Brilliant! It's a pain when it's one step forward, two steps back :(

Re: Door pins

I would check first - before tightening the nuts - that there is no gap between the hinge plates and the shoulders of the pins. If there is a gap tightening the nuts may crack the fibreglass at the mounting points.

When it gets nearer the time perhaps getting together for a meal might be nice.

Re: New member - Excel SA

More great progress Neil! It will be worth it. At least your bumper appears to be fibreglass, and modifiable , not the rubbery stuff some are made from.

Re: Excel SA automatic gearbox

Thanks Stu. I'm just fabricating the gearbox mounting bracket for the chassis - I don't want to use an original bush if they are impossible to get later on if it needs replacing. I'll keep searching!
