Pity we don't have no dates for the modifications.

A

The following modifications have been introduced to the instruments and controls on later vehicles.
Hood Lock:
The bonnet(Hood) is released by pulling simultaneaously two knobs, each knob being positioned between one side of the facia and the door.
Windshield Wiper Switch:
The windshield wipers are dual-speed and are controlled by a rotary switch.
B

The following modifications have been introduced to the engine on later vehicles.
B4 To Remove the Engine:
The throttle linkage mechanism on a "Stage II conversion" is replaced by a cable assembly.  This modification will alter slightly the procedure for removing and replacing the engine.
D

The following modifications have been incorporated on the rear axle and prop shaft on later vehicles.
D3 To Dismantle the Axle:
The breather assembly (Part No. 2294 FW500 and 200754) on top of the axle case have been replaced by an improved breather assembly consisting of a breather pipe with a cap retained by a cotter pin (Part No. 6450).
G

The following modifications have been incoporated on the front hub and suspension on later vehicles.
G1 Front Hubs:
A dust cover (Part No.200676 (L.H.) and 200677(R.H.) is bolted on the caliper mounting plate and covers the exposed portion of the brake disk to prevent grit etc., causing uneven wear of the brake pads.
G2 Front Suspension:
The attachment of each front suspension unit to the chassis frame is adjustable so that the camber angle can be adjusted to correct accumulated manufacturing tolerances.
The camber angle is set to +2 camber by means of an adjusting screw bearing on a swivel bracket.
The front suspension unit (Part No. 200226) is replaced by a similar unit (Part No.201072) wich gives softer front suspension.
To improve the lubrication of each front suspension arm, two flats are ground on the pivot bolt (Part No.200078) and figure "8" grooves are cut in either the inner or outer bushes (Part No.200758 and 200757 respectively).

N

The following modifications have been incorporated on the electrical equipment on later vehicles.
General Data :
The main beam warning light has been changed to a 24-volt, 2 watt lamp.
N8 H.T. Cables:
The H.T. cables are sprayed with "Protocoat" (colloidal suspended silicone compound M.S.4) to protect them from moisture.
P

The following modification ahs been incorprated on the chassis of later vehicles.
P2 brackets and Fixing Points
Towing brackets are welded to the front of the two main side members of the chassis.
Q

The following modifications have been incorporated on the bodywork on later vehicles.
Q2 The Main body:
Splash guards are fitted between the scuttle and the side members of the chassis to prevent dirt, etc., being thrown up onto the engine.
The headlamps are enclosed by Perspex fairings (Part Nos.201164 R.H. and 201164 L.H.). The joint between each fairing and the body is sealed by a sealing rubber (Part No. 3609).
Q4 The Bonnet (The Hood):
The bonnet release mechanism is rod actuated and there are two release knobs, one at each side of the facia adjacent to the door.
Q14 The Hard Top:
The hard top is secured to the main body by four cage nuts instead of toggle levers.
Q15 The Hood (Soft Top) :
The soft hood is secured to the body by eleven Lift-the-Dot studs and sockets.
Q17 interior Trim:
The rear bulkhead trim is secured by seven Phillips screws, No. 10 by 5/8 in. long, which are fitted from inside the boot and engage with spring clips fixed to the trim.
