Re: Re: 1994 BRG Vitesse Fastback

I think the PG1 and 2 internals are basically the same, from memory the casing is the main differences, I will find some pictures from the workshop manual. They may look the same, but the main difference is that the 2.7 manual uses taper needle roller bearings for the diff to casing, not the conven...

Re: Remade bumper bracket

Know the quality of the sills. :)

Considering getting 3 Fuel Fillers too!!!

Then I am probably going to Polybush the 2 Vitesse's and the 2.7 coupe.

Could be an expensive year. And a busy one!!!
1st, gotta finish the Fastback Vitty before I do the sills, engine and box on the Coupe Vitty!
