Hey Mark, lovely looking motor mate!
Do a search on line for a trimmer near you and talk to him.
I paid around £100 for the driver side bolster to be re leathered.

Best of luck mate....

Hi there,

Cheers mate....

The seats on ours are slightly sagging on the bolsters especially on the drivers side....

Whats that exhaust on your spider.....looks like stainless manifold and nice back box to...

And where did you get your strut brace.....

Cheers

These guys custom made me a manifold to suit there exhaust system, a bit pricey but excellent quality, I have there full stainless system and it sounds fantastic!

If you can afford it defo recommend!!

The strut base is "Ultra Racing" makes a big difference. Make an offer for £80, should seal the deal :thumbs:

Was your top cover always in good condition or have you had to clean it up? If so, how did you go about it? Mine isn't bad, but it's not as nice as yours :rolleyes:

Powder coating my friend !!

"The track day" GTV is a 98 with alloy cam cover and intake bits, have had them powder coated in a sparkly candy apple red and will look awsome when fitted :cool: watch out for updates on my thread

Great looking spider,I have same model. I had my wheels refurbed now only need washing
with car shampoo & keep looking as new.Clear side repeaters make a nice update & very easy to swap over.
Thinking of sorting suspension next, Polybush rear & strut brace front seems to be what everyone on here recommends.

Hi

polybush rear is awesome the ride is so much better and no more annoying squeaking....

New wishbones on the front are a revelation...we didnt polybush the front because i had herd that it is not a good thing to do....dont know why...but front is now great

Cheers

Hi

Click on this link i had some for my 156 as well the only drawback is that they are self adhesive....you can stick em over your originals or dismantle the original like i did they look so much better if you do it the way i did....http://stores.ebay.co.uk/54321-Retro-Rocket?_trksid=p4340.l2563

They are very good quality...the wheel badges look brilliant.

Cheers

I'll be ordering those shortly. They will match with my interior nicely. I have the inverted badges on my alloy gear knob and handbrake lever so looking forward to matching the outside with the inside. Thanks!
