Dolomites and Toledos had the same ID spring on the back, though I can't remember the free length offhand. The 1500FWD with the beam axle had a slightly shorter one on the rear, too.

Are you not based in Parkstone any more, Gary? That looks like Sandford? Great job on the car. :)

That looks terrific, very different but we'll resolved and nicely cohesive with the body shape. Great work.

How Many Models Now?

Just out of curiosity, really: how many projects are now produced by Tribute or Old No.7? I went by a few days ago and saw the XK120, a Healey replica (ex-Thruxton model?) a TVR tub, etc? Is there a...

Aside from the quality and price debate, why oh why do people persist in dressing up a fifties shape in a sixties/seventies livery?! I know this is very much a personal gripe, but the Gulf colour...

It's great, very impressive. I like that it has a sort of 'caricature' quality to it - I mean that as a compliment. It looks stubby and purposeful. Love that the original doors are retained, too....

It might be worth trying a Triumph Dolomite rear screen? Period-looking but a good size, with traditional rubber fitting rather than the bonded type.

I can't be alone in thinking that the car that started this thread is absolutely gopping? It looks like a Maserati viewed through the bottom of a dirty pint glass.

I'm NOT having a pop, but much as I like your project and admire your work enormously, does that Mk1 2ltr DHC Vitesse really have to be sacrificed?! It just seems a shame. Sorry, probably just me......

You have the later handbrake cover on there, shared with the Dolomite. You need a handbrake cover from a Toledo or 1300 FWD - the security lock will clear then.

It looks sooo much better for having the back raised. :) Have you ever considered 14" steels on it? I've used 5.5Jx14" MGF (spare) steels on my Triumphs: they locate well on the 3/8ths studs.
