    Looking great Phill !! .... and thanks for sharing, there's nothing to beat some 'Nova porn' on a cold Winter's day! I see you've added a couple of reflectors at the back ... must be getting close to MOT day

    Wow, pic 3 out of 5 has made me fall in love with the Nova all over again

    Perfect weather for photos, rear three-quarter shot with just the right amount of opposite lock on...

    Is it just a trick of the light, or do you have tinted side windows?
    only Pythagoras can save me now!

    Mixed fortunes today. I swapped the rams for the two refurbished rams I had made up only to find one was leaking fluid out at the top so I had to revert back to one of the original rams. However the addition of copper sleeves to limit the rams extension makes a big difference and I can now confidently open the roof to it's limit without fear of going over the top. The downside is the roof still doesn't hold negative pressure for very long so I'm going to have to engage some professionals to refurbish a set.

    Since originally adjusting the rear suspension ride height, I have been aware that the o/s sites about an inch higher then the n/s. I decided to lower the o/s by a further inch to get both side sitting nice and level. I stripped it all down and with the trailing arm relaxed and off the step I measured how far it was off the ground at it's lowest point figuring that if I rotated the torsion bar by enough to raise it by an inch the car should then sit level when re-assembled. I had to do a combination of inner and outer spline rotations before I arrived at the correct height then re-assembled it all. After driving the car backwards and forwards a few time to allow the suspension to settle I re-measured the height at either side to find that whilst I had succeeded in lowering the car by an inch on the o/s - the n/s now also sat an inch lower (almost touching the bump stop) . So now I'm going to have to strip down the n/s and rotate the torsion bar to raise it by an inch - but something tells me the o/s will be similarly affected? Anyone else experienced this?

    I know I can buy adjustable spring plates but I would rather set up the suspension without having to do this.

    Phil, your signature image's gone the way of the dodo, you need to redo it
