Hi James,
Thanks for the info, my car is a 55 speedster, the car has been off the road for many years and I am currently in the process of cleaning and recommissioning it.
I got underneath it today and the rear shocks are a red / orange but are koni so I presume change at some time, the fronts are the F&S.
I see what you mean regarding rebuilding them, looks quite involved but worth it I think.

Thanks Rob.

Does anyone here have a paint match, (rattle can, or otherwise), for the reddish-orange color on the rear shocks?
