Re: Project London Bridge

There were 2 different kinds of power steering in the FC. Most FCs used vehicle speed sensing power steering Some series 5 (but not series 4) models used engine speed/RPM based power steering - generally these were in N/A models in the US and Infini turbo models in Japan. It was an inferior (but sim...

Re: Center console storage - lid issues

They are extremely flimsy. Many people have adapted universal hinges which are commonly available at hardware stores. Or, you could buy this repro item if Phils Rotary ships to UK. Otherwise I might be able to help you out myself. See https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co...

The Strongarm ones lift up a few inches by themselves, then I have to give them a little nudge and they raise the glass the rest of the way. I'm not 100% sure it's aligned properly and I may be a...
