    My fuel tank cover plate looked the same as yours. Had some clutch flued leaking on there, the clutch master was bad when i got the car. What I did is drill some holes in each corner of the deep section, so in future any leaking flued will drain out so it does not corrode the plate.

    Previous owner just have cut the frame as the rear piece was bolted on. I don't mind I probably would have done it to. Makes things a lot easier back there.

    Thanks Man!

    For those who are curious my suspension set up is drive stainless coilover kit, delorean club UK ball joints and lower aluminum control arms, dmc nos uppers, dmc rubber bushings and bearings everywhere except sway bar. I went with Toby from northwest poly sway bar kit. And got a set of trailing arm bolts as well. All of my brakes and components came from Mike at Midwest, he zinc plated everything for me but those are another days job. Gotta finish the suspension first. It's fairly strait forward. The drive stainless kit makes it easy. Front left took about 1hr and a half but had to figure things out and spent 30 minutes messing with the hydraulic press in the shop. Didnt even mess with the stock springs and a compressor just cut them....they were garbage anyway. Probably get the right front done in 30 minutes of course a lift makes things a lot easier.

    Got origional sway bar, clamps, and front end recall brackets back from blaster and powder coat today just in time to be installed tomorrow. Plus this sweet clock from a fellow German membor.

    trailing arm bolt.jpgstarter.jpgold front.jpgnew front.jpgleft rear.jpgleft rear 2.jpgcompleted front.jpgbad control arm.jpgaccumulator.jpg

    Got a lot done this weekend. Front suspension is done. Rear supsension is almost done...left is buttoned up but the right rear hub bearing exploded when i tried to seat the axle so I need to fix that. The rear suspension was a huge pain in the ass....I have never seen bearings that bad and bushings that bad..I spent a lot of time pressing out the old bushings, but all the bushings and bearings are now new...I also replaced the trailing arm bolts and bushings...I got lucky because my bolts were actually ok but for piece of mind I replaced them any way. Also replace the accumulator, bolted up the eagle starter, and put a few sensors in. Pretty productive weekend. I highly recommend Drive stainlesses Qa1 Kit, quality stuff and easy install.

    Suspensions done...haven't made any adjustments yet. Stripped axles down and had the axles powder coated. Next up is rebuilding axles, installing brakes, clutch lines, brake master, clutch master and reservoirs.

    I thought your front springs looked grey in your pics, I just now realized I was looking at the rears (but in a different post.) -lol

    Fronts are only available in chrome....
