Have a look at their website : [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

These products are really famous here, used on mining equipment, four wheel drives and indeed in racing when allowed. I know of two gold prospectors who swear by them after being stranded in the Australian desert, and used them to come back . They had the pumps for spares, just cut a hose install the pump et voila !!

Finished my set up for wheel alignment and corner weights. Found out that my hoist was the best place to do it, easy to level and make dead flat.

I am lucky to have a hoist to adjust the rear toe, what a pain even with the Guldstrand system !!
And after it , corner weights !

This is with no driver weight, 2 gal of fuel . Kind of shipping weight then. 1367.5 kg = 3014.82 lbs

Looks great, Thierry! I saw you ditched the power windows, do you still have manual windows? If youre required to have windows (or you just want to keep them) the 80-82 glass is thinner than the early glass. Obviously no convertible glass available but I wonder if you could have someone cut the back edge to turn it into 'vert glass. Its the little things that add up! (or should I say go down??)

P.S. I got the customs forms for your backing plates today... going out in the next day or so

Hey man!

Yes I have manual windows , keeping them more for convenience than going all out.
I didn't know that the later model windows are thinner !!: And I know of a glazier who can help me there !!

You are right, a bit here and there help a lot, and the car is still looking quite normal.
And again, many thanks for the time you are spending for me. Err... you need a custom form ??
