    KVA chassisnumber

    Where is it stamped on the chassis, and can you identify it by its number. My number SFAFXXBABFBB with 5 digits According to the V5, august 1th 1981 I don't have the chassis with the drum brakes. It has two coil-over shocks on each side on the back. 7 posts to go and I can upload pics.

The car was built, mainly by me in 1992 so was kit prior to that. I am trying to identify the type of brakes used at the front. They are Girling, pad...

    Trailer Brake Controller?
