Please hit me with questions and comments.

At the moment I'm researching exhausts. I want something that looks decent, isn't bothersome on highway cruise, and has reasonable cost. Please advice wink

Ooh that's an unusual interior, looks rather nice, even if the pics are upside down wink tongue

As for the "possibly bent" parts, I'm not sure, I'd have to take a look in the garage tomorrow...

Haha, upside down, there’s a lot to learn for a newbie.

No matter what I do, they end up being upside down

It's ok, they're rotatable smile

Yes the interior is great, how you keep it clean must be a nightmare!

I love that interior for no other reason than it's a complete opposite to what we normally get over here!

I remember from several years ago now someone posting a dealer catalogue of options available on the continent. Quilted leather, different alloys, wood effect dash, etc. I'm tempted to get google translate on standby and see what goodies ebay has to offer

I’m struggling to find a replacement left hand side motor mount. The one under the transmission, looking like a tin can.

Also the upper radiator hose seems hard to find.

Mags, would you like to do the magic photo trick on your first couple of posts in the Project thread proper?

Best place to put your search for the motor mount (engine mount) is in Parts Wanted smile

Remember to say what model of coupé you have, or you can put the appropriate avatar in your profile (click on your forum name top right-hand-side/Edit Profile.)

The bent part in "that" - it looks like the part the airbox bell fits through and I don't recall a kink there - it's an odd place to happen. The car itself looks terrific before storage and I'm wondering what would have caused that to bend.

Is the front bumper in good condition, no sign of damage?

“Sitting” fixed.

Yeah, it is indeed around the air box. Probably comes from someone wrestling it to disassemble things

I think Rosso on here is pleased with his recent fit of a Ragazzon exhaust....

Last exhaust I fitted was a German one that came via Joe at FCSS. Fits well and has been on for a few years with no problems.

I’m well pleased with the Supersprint cat back exhaust on mine. 200cell cat from Biltema. Might be a bit on the pricy side though.

You can try Joe in the UK for some new, but plenty of second hand parts.

He is contactable as Countrycrusing on here.

Have a look at french_coupe's project thread post today at 1323, I think you'll see how the bent part *should* look.

Great, thanks, found it. It shoud be bent, somewhat... I´ll try to get it back to its original position.

BTW I´m looking for the tool to lock the cams in position while doing the cam belt.

Is the one for the "20VT unique, or can I use the same as for ten n/a 20v? There are various descriptions out there, and some a bit unclear.

I only know that Laser tool 3636 are the cam locking tools for the 20VT.

Where can I source a radiator? I got one from AUTODOC, but it didn’t fit.

You are probably better placing this in Parts Wanted, Coupé Related Chat or even General Maintenance tbh.

Autodoc have a reputation for saying they have the part then sending one of a different size.

Try Direnza rads.

Choose from here. All have a 5 year warranty now and not much money after all. AC condensers as well.

When you go to select the price - the 20VT version shows as unavailable. I'd recommend looking at the Direnza ones (since they're already UK based/built). If in the EU, then you can order alu radiator from Flexeo - and it's even cheaper than Direnza in my experience: https://motorstore.fr/shop/gb/radiateurs-aluminium/733-commande-decrouy-bernard.html
