The latest news from my contact is that they can make the bushes.
These will be 155/Fiat Coupe
bushes which may or may not be the same as the bushes on the 145/6.
The Fiat Coupe and 155 uses the exact same subframe (I checked part numbers).. whereas the 145/6 sub-frame is different.. though having said that, the actual bushes
might be the same (since they're not available separately there's no way to check part numbers).
I've got to measure up a couple of the dimensions for the fella.
In the meantime I'll get my 'arris underneath my 145 this weekend and check those bushes compared to the 155/Coupe, to see if they're the same.
The matey makes bushes from polyurethane with a simple metal insert, rather than the complicated standard arrangement.. but the poly' is stiffer than rubber
,so theoretically it doesn't need the additional internal bracing the standard metal insert provides.
Once I have more news, I'll post it..
