I have a feeling that he's taken the pictures we sent and gone for good. I wouldn't waste my time chasing him up.

Do you plan on doing anything with the wheel arches to get a better line?

I sent him an email offering my car but never heard a thing in reply.

The parts on the left (L shape) look a little like the window stops from a 360 kit. The stop the auto window mechanism from going all the way down to the bottom of the door.

I think the top one is a rear view mirror  ;)

That price doesn't seem too bad although I would have thought the spacers needed to be bigger than that :-/

I agree. The ride is very harsh with the lowered suspension.

Cheers guys. When I adjusted them the first time there was no screw and they just turned freely to adjust. It's more than likely that when they were raised the first time during the MOT the mechanic sorted the grub screw. I raised one side and put it on an axle stand to look at the spring and it was held firmly in place with no way of taking it out. The other side of the car was off the ground by about 10cm but this was due to it being one 1 axle stand. I'll jack and support both sides properly (and safely) when I have more time to see if the springs come loose.

Brilliant  ;D To be honest I'd never even heard of one! Any idea on size or will a 3/4 to 2" adjustable one do the job.

Hopefully someone on here can help me out with some mechanical question  :P The rear suspension on my 360 uses the damptech setup which is fully adjustable. When I got the car the rear suspension was at it's lowest ridge height and when the car was raised off the ground the rear springs just fell out of their seating positions. I had the car raised by about 2 inches when the MOT was done but feel it needs to go a little higher. The exhaust catches on th ground all the time when driving over the slightest bump and whilst I can raise the exhaust a little I want the whole rear end raised about 1 inch.

The problem is that when I jacked the car up the rear springs are firmly in place. How do I get them out to adjust the screw base? Will I need some small coil compressors and what are the best ones to use. Any help would be much appreciated.

This photo shows the coil with the slightly rusty screw base and the exhaust section is the matt black tube going across the bottom.

This slightly better photo shows the coil to the left, the exhaust in the middle and the rear brake and suspension parts are the rusty ones on the right. Who'd have thought that most were new 12 months ago!

Maverick:- I'm not sure where you get your prices from but the kit is £4k, windows, seats and wheels will be another £1-2k then you have to buy the donor at £1k. Your'e looking at well over 7k before you even paint the thing. When you add all the little extras on and if you have to pay a builder to do it for you you'd be in to the 13k region with out much trouble at all.
