The hunt for my grandads car

Just over a week ago my grandad passed away. When my parents were looking through old photos for the service they found this - It's a 360 GLE in the same colour as my 340. Now I looked on the DVLA & it said last taxed in 2003 (B60 XCR). I don't hold much hope but would anybody have any leads? I'd lo...

Re: Door card repair

This is excellent guys. This is the same process I thought might work. Might use small sand bags for pressure to get right into the corners.

What silicone would you use? Standard home DIY stuff

Re: Front top mount - has any done this?

It is. I did spot these but at that price plus shipping I'd rather get Dai's uprated versions! Need order springs & drop links so I'll do it all at same time. Just waiting for one last source to get back to me just incase.

Thanks for responses.

Front top mount - has any done this?

My volvo is coming along slowly but Iv hit a snag - The front suspension top mounts were perishing. I can't find replacements anywhere (except Dai's updated versions) I found this thread - http://forums.swedespeed.com/showthread.php?97976-Upper-Strut-Mounts-How-to-diagnose#/forumsite/21298/topics/97...

Door card repair

Afternoon all,

I've had a quick google but can't really find what I was hoping for. My door cards look like this -

Has anybody successfully repaired similar issues & how?

Re: Front springs

Rim off set - what have you got?

Hi all, I'm quite new here. Bought myself a 44k 1983 343 little while back. Just got in running nicely & will be on the road early next year once she's cleaned up to how I want it. I've started looking into 'stance' on the car. I've had the wheels off & measured what I think to be some good tyre/whe...
