Ok, it looks simple. In any case I have to adjust the door or the wing, as when I open de driver's door the front border touchs the wing.

Don't forget to tap up the door stop pin, before you undo the door nuts.

Thanks for the picture Sonett, yes, I must to check the float, as I left it in a medium position, not exact.

The ventilation valve works correctly even if the movement of the lever could be better(softer) if the washer marked in red would be new as the inner part is wear and has a lot of play around the axis. But, where do I find a new washer?

I had to remove the hook. It doesn't pass the MOT


And now time to paint the wheels.

I removed the most part of the rust by hand, sanding and then applied a rust converter.

And the exhaust mount does? Wonder what the origin of the rear exhaust box is.

Well, only god knows...
It's going to be funnny repair the missing support for the exhaust box.
But first, the wheels, it is not necessary to do it now but the quickly satisfaction is guaranteed.

It seems the bracket for the exhaust box is there, but the fitting looks not completely original.


Any photo of that place?

Another photo of the "state of art"





Having a look to this, is there something missing?is missing the upper spring seat?


I think, the best thing will be remove the rear axle to work on it and remove the rust and change the rubber bushings.
