Project KP30: Strut-Out

Two crashing tubes of leaky awfulness is pretty much all that is holding up the front of the KP these days; 34 year old internals and no OEM replacements are not conducive to a well damped suspension.  Having rebuilt them more times that I’ve dragged the exhaust over a speed hump, I decided action was required.

A couple of emails to Gaz suspension (I’ve ran Gaz stuff on my cars for year s and it’s always been good) and they confirmed they could do what I needed: new internals whilst retaining my top mounts and coilover stuff.  Good times.

With Spring only just round the corner (hey, I’m an optimist…) I stripped them off…

…boxed them up and shipped them out.

See you in 2-ish weeks….

Project Roadster: A romantic weekend for one…

Spent rolling around under 20 year-old…

…is what I’ve got to look forward to in the not too distant future! After waiting for it to die for 2 years (it’s always been a bit on the noisy side) the Roadster gearbox is finally whining and groaning enough for me to swap it out, before it leaves me at the side of the road!

That said, despite the interesting noises coming from it, it still shifts sweet and has been spot on!  But, without wanting to tempt fate too much, I picked up this 60k mile box locally. As soon as I get chance, in she goes!
