They're coming thick and fast, within 10 years ICE commuter vehicles will be the minority of new sales.

Just a few pictures of my renewed go at finishing this rebuild, but struggling, as I've l lost all my pictures I took of when is was stripping it, and being so long since I last tinkered with the car, cannot remember where things go and in what order, especially the dashboard.

Found it on the net, not sure if i can get it delivered to The Netherlands.
Until now I have been looking at general webshops since it's just a plug for a tube, but have not found the correct size so far.

46401659 (I think, a screw, correct?)
No, it's a plug. But don't have one outside the car now for a picture. Perhaps it's 60711097

Found it on a website! But for Wholesale only.

It would be great if FCCUK organized a buy for members who are willing to invest money in all kinds of smaller perishable parts. E.g. the top strut mounting is hard to get, Febi can produce them but the order size has to be 500.
For years I am collecting all kinds of parts, with a value in stock higher than a coupe itself. But it's the only way to keep coupes on the road the next decades. The Coupe enthousiast in The Netherlands who organized these kinds of remanufacture has quit unfortunately.

Hello. Please count me as reconfirmed!

A quick question of etiquette. If the weather is abysmal is it bad form not to bring your Coupe?

Mine seldom goes out in the wet but don’t want to let the side down!

That could now be Mercedes. Spoke to a couple of RAC and AA chaps of late and asked them the most frequent marque of the car they are picking up both independently stated Mercs, sensor faults and responses to them require full lift and recovery. Roadside repair capability zilch.

I think if pushed I prefer the refinement and the purer driving pleasure of the GTV V6 (a mini 456GT) over the Coupe, better handling, build quality is better (makes the Coupe feel a tad budget) and road holding, no on/off power delivery less Marmite in the styling department (better soundtrack) than the Coupe too, but I will not be selling either.

I'll have a go tomorrow - might have to take a pic through the workshop window so as to get perspective

@clanger: worth considering. Perhaps use metal from a scrap coupe with similar issues.

Although I found that the 3M alu tape should work until 250 °C:

For my loft I used really good tape. I can't find mine anymore, but the shop replaced it by this:

For 2: just pry, there is no clip.

For the 20VT there are two different pumps. Mine was build in 1997. As of 1998 the pump and pump housing was changed.
I will reorder a new one, for the 1997 model the pumps are easily avaible. And now I have a 1998-2000 model in spare …

Agreed, I've been looking at it too, here's a link to the suggested amplifier https://www.co-star.co.uk/3669/dab-in-car-digital-radio-amplifier-a-4721-01/

I can't quite work out the wiring arrangement that is referred to however, perhaps MIB can give us a nice diagram? In particular, is there a DAB aerial anywhere? I was thinking of something like this https://www.co-star.co.uk/3839/dab-glass-mount-antenna-gmdab3l-5f/

That looks an amazing job by the way. Is that your second roll cage fitted coop?





Not my coupe but a French pals. It's an extremely well prepared car. I'm not sure of the mounting to be honest. But he is lower than stock for sure.

Very sad news,

Grab your current prospective winning MP by the collar and get him/her/it to confirm they will be supporting you and your hard hit neighbours to ensure you get the compensation and support you need following such an event.

I'd feel beyond upset if a car looked after well had this happen.

I guess the positive is that no-one was injured in the event.

Best wishes,

MM

Yeah I did think of that, but it still sounds a bit too smooth for a 3 pot. They usually sound more 'rorty.'

Happy to be corrected though.

Drove a 3 pot Ibiza turbo recently and it did sound quite good, but more of a thrum than smooth.

Hi Toby
Nice to hear from you. It’s been a while. Hopefully see you at the 30 year anniversary!!!!
Always things to do on the Coupe. Love the forum for keeping motivated too.
In the new year I have belts to do and refurb the a/c compressor. Should keep me out of the pub I guess.
Send me a pm and let me know how you are doing.
