Re: Shocks

When you lowered the ride height you changed the camber......... so it needs to be adjusted again. Rear toe in will also have changed. It will have increased -ve camber so the wheels either lean more if you had -ve camber, or as this is a type 3 and may have +ve camber, you will have lost some of th...

Sikafkex ........ it's a polyurethane adhesive, strong stuff and has been used to strengthen engine mounts

There's all types of Sikaflex, a bit like loctite, but the PU adhesive is probably the best known

Re: 411 LE, parts to be saved, act quickly

It was a pleasure Rich, glad you got home safely and everything unloaded. If this really does make all the difference to getting your project on the track to completion I'll be really delighted. There is quite a bit more metal and strength in a type 4 than I perhaps thought.

Re: 411 LE, parts to be saved, act quickly

Richt has snaffled the carpets and I believe the door cards / handles are different between 411 and 412 so they won't fit, which is a bit of a shame as that could have meant the whole interior being reused.

Re: 411 LE, parts to be saved, act quickly

The wheel well itself seems pretty good, and some of the area around, so that would seem to be a good match. We chopped the nose off last weekend, in case that was of any use. The rear section below the tailgate seems OK, except for the lower edges, but I think your is a saloon, so no use for you ? ...

Also looking for the mounting for the fuel pump mounted at the front of the car under the tank area.

Richtbiscuits and I spent the day doing some 411 parts saving. She's getting smaller and very little is left on the car now.

Not got there yet, front suspension is nearly off, after that it's finishing the engine compartment and then it'll be the interior.
