They are beefy strut tubes..they aren't standard 1200 or 120Y ..

Do you have a little more history?

The swaybar also looks on the thick side 120Y?

Only dattodude could identify struts based on a glimpse of them in a dark photo ... you must have some good eyes.

Side by side. Picked up some more 1200 bits today and I have nearly finished repairing the front apron. I hope to weld that on tomorrow.......

The worst of the damaged panels are easy enough to replace with new ones, & even the grille is available new, so it can be made to look a lot better than this for a reasonably low cost.
Thats when your heart starts to pump harder & you KNOW what you need to do.

Ok I had a play today and I have used the bottom arms and lower radius rods from the B310 and opened up the strut tower holes and they do just bolt up!!!!

The B310 strut tubes are longer than the B110's strut tube, but by 10 mm. Then they are in over all lenght are the same as the B110 from the ball joint to the top of the strut hat.





This is all that I used from the B310.
