    Yes there's a pile of spares in boxes, I believe there's a dauphine brake set up amongst it. I'm informed that an R10 rack is desirable, but I'm looking at chemical stripping and welding first.

    Everything is easy relative to the body I expect!

    The R10 rack might be better but also compromises turning circle a bit I'm told - I've driven a 4CV with an R10 rack and I didn't really notice that though. My car is on its original rack and I'm OK with it. Pretty low geared but, like some others, I've thrown out the return springs.

    Cheers

    I've been lucky that the car came with so many spares, including a full set of hanging panels. Getting the body right is the priority.

    Nice to have the panels. I got a pretty reasonable rear guard from a wrecker at Sandy Creek, near Gawler in SA a couple of years ago and he had more on a car there. When I think about what I threw away 45 years ago I could cry..... Still, only so many are really needed.
