Had a brief drive in the car

Pulls like train,handling is pretty neutral, albeit it needs the tracking doing

Brakes are still a bit soft, so I’ll bleed them again

The only thing I’ve got to investigate is a knocking at the rear end. It’s coming from both sides, so my immediate suspicion is something to do with the anti roll bar and the brackets I had to pack out, which I know means a few things off to get at it

I’m on holiday early next week, so I won’t get chance until next weekend

Quick walk round video in the google drive for those interested

Cheers Jamie

BB is correct; it's a one way signal to any phone in range. Which is why my UK sim card in Germany won't get the test; they don't care about the number as they're working at a lower level in the protocol stack.

Governments generally don't want to track you anyway; they find it easier to let the googles and facebooks and tiktoks and whatevers do the job for them and then grab the data. If you don't need the location services, turn 'em off. The phone system has to know where you are to the nearest cell tower so it can send a call to you, or data, but it doesn't need exact location, only signal strength.

How do you feel about eCall?

There is a system which I'm sure they swear blind will never be used to track you or auto report if you went through a 20 zone at 21, or a motorway at a ton...

community events is the answer, I think

to bring people together, to promote 'the family', which will in turn promote the 'forum & 'club

time for another Coupe Tour...

Great result to have her wheels going round again after all that effort thumb

She lives love love

Brakes need a rebleed as there's still too much pedal travel, maybe because the pistons weren't fully seated? Anyway it's easy enough to push more fluid through

Albeit only a short drive, but no knocks and bangs and the ride is brilliant

Will post a bit more over the weekend

Cheers Jamie

so I've rebled the brakes, and pedal feels good now

I've put the repainted battery tray and re-secured the battery itself along with the various looms clipped back into place.

I've refitted the side lights, and put the piece of heat shield near the muffler back into its fittings

Finally put the rear wheels on the ground!!

Plan for after work tonight is to fit the undertray and put the front wheels down

Cheers Jamie

Thanks, I'd never heard of these, but the look is much more akin to what I've seen the craftsmen use online.

I note you can get them with teeth on both lower and upper edges....

For cabinet work and boat building I use Japanese pattern pull saws - no going back to any other handsaw once you try them.

During my incessant trawl of restoration videos I've been tempted by several pieces of natty equipment such as Hand Tool Rescue's wrenches (I have a standard and a mini-size, both sent from Canada cool ) as well as the never-gonna-get drill presses and sanding machines frown

But what looks mightily accessible is a flush-cut saw - has anyone had experience of these and would they recommend say the Stanley example?

Seems this thread has gone off the boil, given the scarity of new threads I thought I might try to scramble up some interest.

Just finished rebleeding the brakes, pedal feels better

Got all 4 wheels on now

Just initially set the Osrav shocks as per some old commentary from Nigel

Tomorrow I’ll bolt the undertray on and do some last checks, and hopefully tootle around the block

I don't believe that the system is actually tracking your phone, it will just broadcast from a set number of masts. If you are located near one of those masts you will receive the message.

Somewhat shocked that I've managed to get to be the age I am without ever thinking of any time when this would have been useful.

New brake compensator valve fitted, and brakes have been bled, albeit I will do them again as the pedal feels a bit soft

So just finished fitting the new compensator valve from Joe (thx joe wink )

They are a bit fiddly to rethread the brake nuts into the body of the valve, but it’s done now

Quickly bled the calipers all round, interestingly I didn’t jack the rear trailing arms and I got fluid straight to the rear calipers.

Maybe when the car is dangling the valve actually doesn’t fully close the flow?

Tried the brake pedal, but feels a bit too much travel, but I’ve run out of fluid, so I’ll get another litre tomorrow and bleed the whole system again

So I will definitely have wheels on the ground for the weekend yipee

Cheers Jamie

Email received from the organisers, if anyone's got an Instagram they want to promote, add it below. Does the club have an Instagram? I'll give them the clubs Facebook page details.

Good morning,

Hope you are well.

We’re currently finalising plans for the show, we will be sending out hangers for yourself and club members shortly.

This is set to be the biggest show we’ve done, with cars stretching over a mile long – so you can imagine the admin for the small team here!!

Please can you send us your Facebook/Instagram handles so we can start to promote?

We noticed also, last year a few clubs had created ‘South Wales Car Show Event’ pages, which had created some confusion, please refrain from doing so if possible. You can use our event page here -

click for facebook page

Entry is free for exhibitors, we also had many people ask about donating to the hospice, so we have created a justgiving page if you would like to use it - Click to donate
