Re: Help needed identifying struts

The only stamping at the moment that I can find is 8X28. Fairly large stamps used. Nothing identifying the brake pad. The rotor measures 24 mm across. Dr Google was no help to me..

Re: Wife’s not happy

A bit more done. Frame rail re fitted, rust repair panel around rail done. Guards and bonnet loosely fitted up to check alignment. Was a lot of mucking around to make sure all fitted up well, but really happy with the result. You can’t tell now that the rail and rad support has been out. Waiting now...

New tail panel only fits standard lights, so lots of cutting and Hammer/ Dolly work in this..
