There is, of course also the TR7 and its variants (lots of them still about) :wink: - although one strut would not fit all in that case, as TR7 Sprints and TR8's need different shaped struts...

Get some Black smoothrite or something on it mate, would look a treat!

Thanks for the pics Allen, looks a bit tight over the engine with that posh rocker cover :lol:

Yep, I reckon there's about 3 or 4 mm of clearance. It would be much more with the standard cover, but I've had no issues.

Yes, or at least there was.

Whiteline from Australia available through DemonTweeks - a very very nice alloy one but not particularly cheap. They may not be available any more either and when they were I had to more or less tell them about them :lol:

Here's a picture of it in my TR7 Sprint

Yes, I bought 2.
Looking forward to fit them to my 2500s estate (and my mates 2.5 pi)
