Cheers Zen.
Nice to hear positive comments in this world.
I've been meaning to register for ages but somehow never got round to it. The cars been a 10 year on and off project. It was a total wreck (rust) when i bought it in '95 and now its, sort of, finished i just want to drive it all the time, between showers, obviously.
Hope to visit some shows in the UK soon.

What's up shuff?

Shuff after completing your brakes, did you have any problems adjusting the camber with the stock camber bolts? Thanks for your help, TOW74, Peace!

The only problem i encountered with the camber setting was wing/fender to tyre clearance. I did elongate the top mounting holes on my Kerscher 2 bolt front struts to allow more adjustment.
In order to get the tyre inside the wing edge i had to wind on lots of positive, but then the wheel rim inside edge fouled on the springs. So its a compromise really.
Realistically the 7.5 inch wide rim is too wide for the front with stock wings, mine have 52mm ET, and with only about 3-5mm clearance between the rim and the spring, the tyre still occassionally rubs the wing outside edge, tyres are 205's.

Thanks for the comments,
In answer to TOW74, i've just raised the ride height front and rear a bit, which now gives 6 inches clearance under the frame head and 6.5 under the frame forks. The exhaust is a bit lower than that tho.
Car rides much nicer now.
See the attached pix for more.
