  • Elise S2 door waist seals

    Hi  I am currently looking at the possibility of getting a number of Elise s2 door waist seal made up.

    Zinc Plating help and recommendations

    Hi all, Currently part way through doing a suspension refresh.  Today took the wishbones and uprights to be zinc plated only for them to be turned away as they didn't want to acid dip them for fear of embrittlement.

    Suspension refresh advice

    I'm after some advice please, from those on MLOC that have more technical knowledge than me - which is probably most of you! My car is going in to Gav's in January to 'refresh' the suspension.  The wishbones are coming off and need rustproofing - I'm thinking POR 15, is that best? And should I have them passivated first? Also, what bushes should I use? I don't want it to be harsh as it is mostly used on the road. And what about arb bushes? Are there any of those to avoid? Any
