Thanks for the tips guys. Great idea using the masking tape.

I had new rear wings fitted a few months ago and stupidly forgot to get the arch lips trimmed when they were fitted - doh!

It's the O/S that rubs the most with mine. I fitted a Tom Hall Panhard Rod kit last year which allows the rod to be mounted almost horizontally. Adjusting the rod can move the axle slightly in each direction.

Rear springs are about 8-10 years old so they should be OK, I have Leda adjustable shocks on the back which seem to be in good condition, I've fiddled with the adjusters and find almost full soft the best for general road use.

So it's back to the bodyshop then.

What style wheels are you going for Tony?

No but i did get a good look see at your exhaust & chassis mods, nice job.

Also found out that the Coupe de Florio is a bi-annual event so the next one is 2017.
