Re: wing Mirror

1990 - Door mounted I guess as opposed to glass mounted?

Re: Fuel smell in boot

My fuel smell remained until my repairs to the broken hose worked it's way all the way to the filler neck connection point. I used the short route as mentioned and now have no smell using that configuration. Nothing to do with covid19 :D

And each day I went a little further up the tube as each re-connect broke so I needed another. bite the bullet and go straight to the neck.

Re: Springs and dampers - 1978 S1 Elite

Sounds like a general misconception on the term - for me anyway. The previous description makes clearer sense. I now understand we should be talking adjustable and fixed height coil overs. (if that is the correct terminology to use) OEM were fixed height, but as the Excel's Armstrong rear shock orig...
