Re: Metal Work

Great repair indeed BUT...
Surely that repair cost as much as the rest of the car? :lol: I will possibly have to do something similar in the near future on my brother (same) car.

Re: Spring compressor

That's perfect, will work no problems at all, just make sure that you undo each nut similarly to all the other ones. Put some grease on the rods and nuts too, less chance to damage them and like I said much easier to do it with a ratchet spanner and thrust bearings if you have access to these ;) The...

Re: Project

Let me rephrase it then, I love the cottage, window and front work looks great, just definitely not a fan of that extension, for now it ruins the looks but each to their own I suppose and hopefully will look better when complete ;)

Re: Project

Sorry to say it but what is this ugly extension thingy... :shock: Is it temporary housing while you finish the cottage?

Re: Spring compressor

6x30cm rods will work well. Getting a rod is not a problem, but getting a hole drilled into it in order to fit a dowel pin is rather the issue. Definitely nothing that I could achieve with my run-of-the-mill DIY drilling machine. So I rather go the safe way and try it with the 6 long bolts. I did mi...

Re: Spring compressor

Yes re thrust bearings, basically should be much easier to tighten either compressor or individual bolts than tightening them up against plain washer. I had my springs out maybe a month ago(4 front ones) and if I remember right it was closer to extra 30cm when fully decompressed so definitely go for...

Re: Spring compressor

40cm would probably be an overkill, but you'd need 30cm for sure which is about how far the spring will come out of the spring pan.

Re: Spring compressor

Forgot to mention, the individual bolts/threaded rods with nuts would have to be around 40 centimetres each to fully decompress spring. I think they are M8 size. Place jack under pan with them fitted, loosen nuts a couple centimeters. Lower jack to nuts then repeat. To put in new spring just do in r...
