    Brake Caliper Overhaul (GS / 4200)

    Picked up a set of used 4200 calipers in the US for a bargain price of £120. My plan is to refurbish them and colour change to red. After 15 years probably due some love. I got a quote to overhaul my existing ones but was put off by the nearly £900 cost. Since the spare set are from a dry state...

    Wheel colour choice

    Looking to get the wheels refurbed on my GS, currently they’re silver but do prefer the mercury, problem is the calipers are mercury so would be lost. What do you think? Was also thinking about getting the calipers overhauled and re-powder coated at some point...But there is nothing wrong...

    Wanted - GS start and sport switch

    Morning all, I’ve managed to damage the start and sport switch on my GS while doing the heater matrix, does anyone have any spares going? Cosmetics not important as it is the actual electrical switch I have damaged so can swap the visible parts over from my old ones. Thanks in advance Greg

    Thermostat / sensor and rad clean

    Since I was changing the coolant i thought I’d might as replace the stat and temp sensor, much harder than it sounds due to lack of access, (needs a deep 19mm socket for sensor) allow for skinned knuckles and plenty cursing. Also cleaned the space between ac condenser and coolant rad, this was...

    MSP light flashing green on slow right turn

    I've had the MSP light flash green when on a steady right turn, as if the traction control was cutting in, no idea if it actually was as neither braking or accelerating. Only doing 20 mph on right hand corner with a slight dip. Has anyone else had this? Can't see anything by searching the...

    Dye tech cloth?

    The interior of my GS has the light grey tech cloth inserts, it looks like the UV light for the last 13yrs has taken its toll and in certain light conditions the fabric looks slightly pink. I don't really want to retrim the entire interior therefore thought of getting just the tech cloth dyed...

    After making the rear of me GS look like new I am now doing the same to the front... This time with a new front subframe (had a hole poked in it at 2016 MOT). Then powder coat / plate or replace anything else with corrosion. I blame Fat Arnie for inspiring me last year!

    Wishbone ball joint repair?

    Has anyone got any further on repairing the ball joints on suspension arms / wishbones? I have an old rear upper with excessive play in the ball joint that I hope could be repaired as there is nothing else wrong with it. In S.A they have been injecting these sort of joints with a molten...

    Photo request - rear shock lower mounting

    A favour please. After the rear subframe overhaul I'm concerned I'm missing a spacer or washer on the rear shock lower mounting. Checked ES diagrams and looks like nothing is amiss. The shocks are very close to the drive shafts and can't remember them being this close before, also a lot of...
