    Re: X1/9 NEW Door Handle sets

    The only difference I've noticed between the OE and repro handles is the shape of the 'ball' rod connecting post on the back of the handle.
    The OE one is cone shaped, the repro one isn't.

    You must have posted that at the same time as I did Peter?
    Yes, the chrome ones worked in the normal way, and the price per set of three, was 150 each inc. post. (pre Brexit and for more than one...

    Re: Strato polonez from Poland

    Re: Strato polonez from Poland

    It's running an Alfa 12v Chris, so the dimensions of the (lower) chassis rails have to be wider than the original Polonez/Ferrari engined Stratos. Hence the use of Hawk suspension.
    It's very similar...

    If you look, you can see the X1/9 factory stiffening swages on the front inner wing, as well as the (wiring?) hole(s) on the side of the headlamp boxes.

    It's an X1/9 tub Kenny.

    I was seriously thinking of doing the same, until I started gathering secondhand Hawk suspension parts.
    You'd need to widen the X1/9 track somehow. Either shifting the...

    I can see that it looks tight for space on your car Marcus.
    My first Hawk (the dark blue car) had no door pocket on the passenger side. I wonder if this is the reason?

    Re: Period Seats

    Remember Marcus' car is a RHD converted to LHD, so we really need someone with Hawk that has door pockets fitted, that hasn't been converted from it's original RHD or LHD offset.
    Thank you...

    Ken Tomblin is considering this type of seat. I can't remember if his has helmet holders. Ken probably hasn't got the seats yet, in any case.
