Not the best pic because lighting in the garage is dim.

Question: If you look closely, 2 of the 3 screws on each side only go about half way down before meeting some resistance. I didn't go all gorilla on it because I wasn't sure if it'd damage something beneath.

The car looks so much better

I take it you are talking about the screws on the shim plates. Don't force it, they are just too long. Next weekend I can look if I have some shorties for you.

Yep, sorry - I was referring to the shim plates. If you find some proper fitting shorties, I'd be very grateful.

Many thanks, Rijk! Your EA is very efficient and pleasant to interact with. Make sure she gets a big pay-raise.

Took #153 out for a drive yesterday. So nice not to have that ragtop bar behind my head. I noticed every time I looked over my right shoulder to change lanes..."Man, that's better!"

I also finally took care of my squeaky clutch pedal with a little lube. No longer sounds like I'm stepping on a duck every time I shift.

My neighbor saw me getting the car ready for a drive and came over to ride shotgun. Once upon a time he had been in discussions with Victor to open a Spyker dealership in Toronto ... small world. He really enjoyed the ride (his 1st!) and when we got back, he said "Thank you, I will never forget this."
