Through the I’d do a thread about the progress with the mini project.

Front left corner suspension and drive shafts off, re built, painted and ready to go on.

Replaced the A panel while I was there, surprisingly minimal surface rust and no rot but badly warped

Only the A-panel. You lucky man... ;-)

It’d had quite a bit of work about 10 years ago, the A panel was holed roughly in the centre. I welded in a patch but that warped the full panel so I replaced it. The sill and two internal panels were all good. Got off lightly I think.

I tried to buy a Riley Elf from another pal but he wanted too much money for it. A month after he sold the Elf it was for sale again at a much lower price but 200 miles away

Lot of work today, spring replaced by moulton rubber cone (new). Bit of a squeeze but it all goes in eventually. New bearing, ball joints and most importantly nice shiny new nuts!

Very pleasing

I cannot remember when I last saw such a small disc brake given the size and weight of modern cars! laugh2


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.
