Stripped down to rebuild front suspension and brakes. Five rebuilt 19" wheels with new Longstone 350x19 Two races old.
At the same time new kingpins and bushes ,track rod and draglink ends were fitted along with a new steering arm from a batch of newly forged ones stronger than the originals. A reverse camber front spring and dual competition friction shockers helped to lower the car at the front ,flat springs at the rear and a rebuild of the friction shockers gave a uniform ride height. All the wheel bearings and seals have been replaced with modern high performance items .The front brakes have been rebuilt with new Girling drums with new shoes and bonded linings new brake cams and cables , rear brakes re lined and re built
