The P7b 20m 2500S hardtop runs perfectly. Fitted with an Essex v6 and 4speed box she goes, but the steering and handling left a lot to be desired. The first thing to go was the steering wheel - an upside down road cone as my mate Josh described it!
The original steering wheel was replaced with a nice after-market wood rim wheel and after trying three different steering wheel boss kits, the wheel fitted beautifully.
Next on the list was to re-bushed the track control arms, anti-roll bar and steering idler. This led to much improved road holding, which was much improved by locating better wheels.As nice as the wheels look, the 20mm spacers on the front and 10mm spacers on back give some very "interesting" road holding characteristics... Eventually I settled on some 7x13 JBW smoothies, with correct offset! This meant I could finally remove the wheel spacers.
Overall the 2500S is a pretty well sorted car, and I did not have much to do to make her my daily runner - which is definitely what I want. I don't have the time nor money to have a show car and I fully intend to spend my time enjoying it.
