Alpine stereo

Yup, it looks as if it will play FLAC files from a USB stick OK. You should also be able to stream via BT, although it doesn't specifically mention this. It does mention streaming Spotify and internet radio so FLAC files on your phone, or any source with BT, should work. I used to use the Sony equiv...

Alpine stereo

You can always fit a mechless unit, of course. I have a Sony unit in the Coupe and it's only 90cm deep. You can stream music via Bluetooth or plug in your media player/SD card/flash drive. I gave up CDs years ago after I'd digitised the ones I had (1,414 albums & 15,974 tracks - took a while!) and n...

Carcoon

Our garage has cavity walls and is double-glazed so I draught-proofed the up-and-over doors and fitted a large, second hand dehumidifier on a timer for a few hours a day. It makes it very easy to work on the car as there's no Cocoon in the way. It helps that my daily lives outside as the one side of...

Handbrake cable

If the inner cable won't fit through the slot then carefully open it until it does.

Make sure you remove the minimum from the bracket so it isn't weakened. :wink:

Yup, happy to do that for you. I'll report back.
Hi Chris.

I have just had a reply from the seller, Bryan Newbury. He is an RSSOC member.

The car is chassis number 400704
Registration PMT 341F

It is on the register but at least you now have more details regarding condition etc.. :wink:

Nice looking coupe 4a project here

I tried to contact him via eBay for details but apparently that doesn't work from France either. Could someone try for me for the (alternative) register please. Yup, happy to do that for you. I'll report back. :) Interestingly, there's a large RSSOC roundel to the right of the picture in the ad so ...

Another petrol tank

The original factory tank on my SE4B had a return feed into the neck of the tank. It was also present on the replacement SS one I fitted. The standard filler cap is held on with a large nut on the inside but I'm not sure if the Monza fitting has the same. You can't get the standard filler out with t...

Front hub bearings

However, has anyone any experience of using the Revington spacer kit? I believe it uses shims to accurately fill the space between the two bearing inners on the stub axle: Here it is: https://www.revingtontr.com/product/rtr3463k/name/spacer-kit-front-wheel-bearing Looks like a sensible approach to ...

Why not just pin it like the factory did ?. :?: :idea:
Absolutely, the original mod used a Mills Pin. I don't have any Mills Pins :!: so I do the same with a short SS self-tapper. Just be careful the input isn't blocked.

David not forgotten the suspension mounts.
Have pulled out my drawings and asking around for the materials.

Thanks Mark. I'm aware you have more important concerns but knew you'd still be on the case. I'm a little behind my planned timescale so there's no immediate urgency. :)
