I looked again at the Sugga photo. It appears to have man killer split rims which would mean tire tubes.

Lower spring pan sits in the middle of the wishbone, using those four bolt holes. The stud is the lower shock mount.

Such a pretty car. Just wow.
Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

Something about the read 444 really grabs me. It may be the front curves and no bumper.

By the way, I completed my SU carb gaskets today.

Gaskets were made using box cutter knife (new blade), scissors, hole punches, compass, calipers and straight edge.
