    I use a 3/4 torque wrench by ATD part number 12505. Works great.

    After a lot of very high speed running, the rears can get pretty darn tight. The 600 ft-lb ATD is a nice instrument. I saw a TR that had to have the nut cut off.

    You might want to rephrase that.

    ....as it evokes rather painful testicular image. :eek:

    I recently came across pictures of 56339 from Modena Trackdays at Nürburgring back in 2009.
    I'm pretty sure these are Swedish export plates, not French Tourist plates?

    56339:
    These are Dutch customs license plates when Michael B. from the Netherlands brought it to the Nürburgring on 29 June 2009. Neither French nor Swedish.

    Dutch temporary plates for example when importing a vehicle are plain white with black lettering. Google "swedish temporary plate" and that seems to be what it is.

    I refer to what I was told back then in 2009 by Michael Bakker (Dutch Citizen) who used the car on behalf of Fritz Kroymans (from The Netherlands as well) and who worked for Kroymans at that time. But what do I know…………
    PS: Maybe at that time (June 2009) this GTO wasn't even registered at all? And the driver simply used plates from some other car.

    Now I'm 100% confident the plates were Swedish: https://www.transportstyrelsen.se/en/road/Vehicles/Export-and-temporary-registration1/Temporary-registration/
    This car was registered temporary (import-/exportplates) in Sweden 2009-01-16, and was most likely sold to the Netherlands between january and june 2009..
    For some reason these plates remained on the car after it was exported?

    If anyone is able to share info on the car while beeing on temporary Swedish registration, please contact me!

    Kroymans went bankrupt early 2009 couple of months before the Nurburgring trackday pictures. His personal cars including a 250GTO were in the holding and needed to be sold. If this (288) GTO was in the holding, or if it ever was registered in NL I don't know.

    Watching this made my stomach turn. I’m never one to dictate how someone should enjoy their own property, but this was actually upsetting to see, particularly because it’s a 288 GTO.

    56339 was sold TO The Netherlands on 18 May 2002 (Bonhams auction Les Grandes Marques in Monaco) with 12'896 kms. I personally inspected 56339, still in The Netherlands, temporarily stored at an Alfa Romeo service shop, on June 9, 2009 (20 days before the Nürburgring event), and that day (9 June 2009) the odometer showed 13'063 kms. The left side of the driver's seat was worn out and the leather was damaged. The right rear bodywork had been repaired after some damage. Around 2010 it was sold to the UK to Mr. Y., who sold it in 2014 to the current owner.
