Car has at last seen daylight, still got a few finishishing touches to do but almost there.... How many times can I keep saying that!

Today I managed to get the car over my pit and tighten all the suspension bushes then set the tracking, few little details coming together.
I also set the rear brake compensator tensioner now I had it parked on level ground and able to get underneath it.
Lancia workshop manual says to suspend a 4.5kg weight from the bracket which then puts the required tension on the return spring and then tighten up.
I had seen this done before using bathroom scales and fill a water container until the required amount is in but as usual I'd forgotten to take the scales.
A guy in the adjacent unit does a lot of fitness and boxing training, when he's not doing paint jobs, so I asked if he had any weights that would add up to the 4.5kg needed. He did! So a length of cord stringing them together and all set perfectly  Cool

The wheel trims were missing the centre badges so a suitable set were found on ebay, OK probably not as per the originals but they fit in the space nicely and look the part.
Next time I want to finish all the rust preventative wax injection into the doors and sills then the door cards can go on, which along with a few small pieces of trim will be very nearly the last... Again..
A few bits under the bonnet to do and that will be about it...  Grin

Neat idea using the scales to gauge the required strain! But how? Suspend it from the compensator and load it with 4.5kg? but the weight should include the weight of the  scales so how do you weigh the scales? With another set I suppose? Or do you suspend it upside down and then suspend weights to get a 4.5kg negative reading?
Love these threads! Always something to learn! Thanks!

I think Kevin was going to use the scales to weigh a Filled water container (5ltr?) with 4.5kg total weight ....

Thanks Tim! I must have been overthinking after over drinking!

The scales I would have used, memory permitting, would have been bathroom scales - the type that people use this time of year to torture themselves over Christmas binging!
Find a suitable container like the 5L as suggested, add on the means to suspend already if complete accuracy is required and set it all down on the scales and fill with water to the required amount.
That was the plan....
Memory being what it was I'd forgot the key ingredient, the bathroom scales!
So my used method you could say wasn't 100% accurate as the 4.5kg weights were fine but I didn't include the weight of the old piece of aerial cord to string them together and the metal hook to hand them from the compensator, but in reality both items would only weigh a few grams, certainly not even 0.1kg so it's accurate enough to set the job up.
