That’s really lovely. Nice to have that history and connection with the car. Plus the little fella looks like he’s enjoying it too. :thumbsup:

What eight track cassettes do you have?

Wow this looks awesome! exactly how i want my 1500HL to Look!!

How do you find it now with the suspension & bushes etc?
Its plenty stiffer than it was and does corner really well. A little crashy over bumps but not as bad as i was expecting. Its still very drivable and i've not lost any teeth yet.

I am going to have to raise the front a little. As clearance between the ground and the front subframe, plus some exhaust mounts is shocking. Cant avoid speed humps forever.
Thanks for the info! since reading this i have fitted Gaz suspension all round on mine! Just deciding what bushes to replace next!

Yup, its one of the main reasons its with me for the second time. But it will be with me for GOOD now!

Ah i've loads of tapes, buying them off ebay and refurbishing them became a hobby. I've even an indoor 8 track player now. Some highlights are The Sex Pistols, T Rex, Led Zep, Fleetwood Mac, Creedence clearwater revival. Plenty more!
