Spider Recommisioning for 2014 - Questions / Photos
Over the next few weeks I am swapping the front struts / springs / top mounts, sorting out the knackered air box, changing the front brakes and doing an oil service on the Spider. I also found tonight that I have a coolant leak so I hopefully need to sort that (it looks like a hose could be at fault be I will check in the light tomorrow)
I have taken off my strut brace today and I removed the top rubber boots off the struts to find that both were split / damaged. Does anyone know where I can get some replacements?
It is my intention to put up a few photos as I go (which will likely tell people how NOT to do things!) which I hope people may be interested in. I am also trying to sort a few other bits so might post about these too as I go.
Anyway, first pics tomorrow and hopefully someone can answer my query about the strut top rubber covers!
