    That's a better date, one week before Silverstone Classic provisional dates. I remember the last Newark show, my wife and I enjoyed it; I remember the Lancaster too!

    The clash with Goodwood Revival is unfortunate. Several kit car manufacturers displayed at Revival this year, so the clash really might matter.
    I'd like the show to succeed, but this choice of date...

    Brass fittings on Cunifer brake line won't corrode. If you have aluminium calipers, then brass fittings into them may not be the best idea due to galvanic corrosion. If you have cast iron calipers...

    Blue on A10

    Just saw a rather good looking blue cobra on the A10, going northbound in Stretham just north of Cambridge. 1.30pm Saturday 28 June.
    Very nice day for it!

    The cancellation is very recent. I'd been looking at their website at the start of this week as we'd been planning on a visit one of the days, and the cancellation wasn't showing at that point. ...

    Yes, that's a reasonable way to isolate the rear, but you might see less drop at the front because the rear will have to lift the whole weight instead of being helped by the rear springs, as the sag...

    Some ideas. Your problem could well be in the rear suspension. I assume the rear is mk2 Granada. It sort of sounds like something is moving when jacked up, and the settling down after a few bounces....

    I'm surprised that your original springs were longer. Maybe a change in the mk2 chassis design. As I'd said, my old car had compressed front spring length of 8.8 inches, your car must have been...
