The 'want' list is posted in the Project thread Simon - There WILL be loads that I will do to this one - definitely a keeper mate!

I quite like the idea of replacing ALL parts (within reason of course) over a long period of time - Maybe a bit of wishful thinking here though wink

It will no doubt be a plus too and either, yellow and indeed ink black!!

Well done Patch, she's a beauty! love

I saw her while I was up at Joe's on Saturday getting work done to mine including fitment of HIDs cool which I see is on your agenda for the Plus. Mine are 55w 6000K (though they are eBay ones from China) and I'm really pleased with how they look (let's see how long they last...). My 2p's worth is that 8000K would be too blue - if you want to avoid an 'obviously modded' look that is... chinny

Have you swapped the front wheels over yet? That was the only visible blemish when I saw the car!

Yep, two new (well better condition) front wheels were put on by Joe before I picked her up. There are a few paint marks that need sorting, so alls good.

As for the HID's, I went for the 35W 6000K on my steely, they are great, I'm going for a set of Philips 35W 6000K for the Plus though, I've read good things about these.

Good to see another Coupe gets some loving smile

I can see why you changed Coupes looking at the pictures of both. The Plus has a bizaar edge. I'll be watching the progress of the Plus with interest and envy wink

Ooooh, not a fan of the Plus wheels then? To be honest it seems a happy coincidence as the plus wheels should make your steely EVEN more desirable to the right buyer! thumb

Best of luck with the sale! smile

I agree I don't really like them either, but it they help the car gain more money in re-sale i would of thought remove the tires and store the rims, then buy some tasty replacments

Grille looks interesting... I think it will be better to gauge its appearance in daylight at a distance. Up close pic is ok but hard to imagine it with the rest of the car.

Could be onto a winner perhaps with the silver trimmings smile

Yes, the jury is out on this for me? I might go a darker shade of silver yet.

It sure is, what a bargain laugh

Just been spraying up a centre dash console (the one with the heater controls on) tonight, loads of primer and sanding. I'll need to find a shade of silver I am happy with first. The plan will then be

Silver 20VT wheels
Silver dash
Silver grill
Silver wing mirrors
Paint bonnet badge black

Cheers Yella - The engine bay has been initially cleaned, I'll be looking to a nut and bolt job in here, over time of course.

What's happening with yours? Are you getting it back to standard to sell on? I'm intrigued!

No, defo not selling, just returning to standard engine tune and possibly interior. The bodywork is far more important to me now which probably means a full respray. Your bleedin' valeting threads are to blame by the way laugh

No need to get snippy smile Just our ideas of a proper (as you say) "nut and bolt restoration" differ somewhat.

I'm not getting snippy (if there is such a word), though I fail to see where I mention that these cars were 'nut and bolt' restoration projects?

To be fair, this deserves a terse response! Kind of unnecessarily belligerent don't you think? confused

By the way Patch, I'm very glad you decided to go back to black with the grille - I think it looks much better! thumb

Just wondering, how do you manage to get your parts sprayed so quickly? It's like one minute you've got something in 1 colour and then a day later its changed!

Well Insy... the process is thus;

When I spray something like a grill (or wing mirrors). I prepare the night before (including masking)

Spray primer - leave 15
Spray first coat - leave 15
Spray second coat - leave 15
Then third

Bring into house for 1 hour

Spray lacquer coat - leave 15
and repeat twice after.

Sometimes I will gently rub down the colour coat (1200 grit) before lacquering

That's it! Works for me, not an ideal method, but for smaller stuff, it works just fine.

EDIT - The wing mirrors are a spare set, allowing me to play

Next job,swap the 6 speed out for a 5 speed gearbox....

Gradually getting back to a poverty specced coupe...lol

To be fair,i have the one cloth seat in mine atm and is incredibly comfortable and supportive.

Good idea for everyday use mate,the recaros are like rocking horse and easy enough to swap back over.

Nice seats aswell

The cloth interior has come up well.

I have to say the thought of going back to cloth in mine has entered my mind - I do think it's more comfortable!

Of course the real reason for the plate change is to make it look too old to be a plus.

Stealthy like. Anyway, P reg coupes rock.

I think mine is a Pro Alloy one Kelv? It has L&M printed on the side and is bigger than yours (you know what I mean!). I'll double check!

As far as i'm aware of, only Pace made the chargecooler for coupes. L&M are the authorised agents for Pace products.

See laugh

Until i spoke to Joe yesterday, I didn't know they were made in different sizes. Mines already a tight fit in that area (you know what i mean!) so can't imagine what yours must be like!!

It is a Pace intercooler with an L&M badge, although this one works a little better than most!

It's a Pace! But in my mind it will always be a Pro Alloy from now on. So enough already laugh

As for power, I don't do Dyno's, the car is doing what it is doing. Leighton thinks it will be around 285 bhp. It's certainly the fastest I've ever owned and oh so smooth to drive laugh
