    Evening all,

    I have seen in an earlier post but cannot place the photo(s) showing a scissor jack in situ for the adjustment of the D-post to suit rear wheel /tyre fouling.

    I would much appreciate a copy of any photo to provide guidance of jack positioning.
    Thanking you,

    I think it was in one of Vaultsmans posts when he fitted the Vitesse wheels.

    Indeed that is the one - many thanks to both yourself and the original submitter.

    I'm going to have to do the same on the LHS of Brown Rover. Some (slightly) spirited B-road cornering has produced the odd momentary rub from the new 205 section tyre. Nothing from the RHS though, which is probably testimony to the slight asymmetricality of the car. Can anybody advise as to whether the jack technique cured the problem?

    That technique has certainly worked for Lucky! As you're jacking, don't worry about the front bottom corner of the rear wing moving outwards. A "Solihull knee" cures that in a nanosecond flat!

    Yes, but you live in Bristol. You probably had one nearby. I'm going to have to give it a quick kick with the heel of a Red Band.

    Evening all,

    Apologies, this a a second request for the photo requested sone time ago.

    Testrider kindly sent a link (below and a few post earlier up) but it looks to be revised or changed since the post.

    Here it is viewtopic.php?f=21&t=9544&hilit=vitesse+vaultsman&start=45

    The revised link would be much appreciated.
    Many thanks

    Ah ……… the plot thickens

    No doubt it's the old school keeping the secret's t' themselves, only to be gently prised away at the bar with lubrication aplenty :)

    I'll take offerings from anyone else who has a similar photo or can offer a summary of how to do the mod.
    Thanking you
