I might have exhaust clearance problems?

Just don't turn left! Simple.

More pics of the alternator and water pump arrangement, doesn't look like there's much space for anything!

I suppose it does help using soggy old springs :roll: Ok I'll concede that Jim's right it's easy enough to do and yes, the danger is relatively small just don't stick your face in there! Getting rather excited for this year's sprinting, a lot of RG Scimitars coming together and not all cooked the sa...

RAC - Customer loyalty penalty

My favourite one with the RAC. Their performance target window. If they don't get to you within an hour, you become a LESSER priority as the target has been missed!

Never again.

Hmm, I'm not convinced Jim. I have never managed to refit standard (12.25" 180lbs) springs back onto a car without pre-compression and whilst I do ping them out with a pry bar (whilst looking the other way) I still feel they go with a bit of a twang. Going by the picture above you are still looking ...

Just over an hour left and still at only £375.

May well be selling for a pittance... anyone on here going to bite?

Oh yes and welcome, I shall be watching with interest. Looks in good order and gorgeous in that colour.

The steel / GRP anchorages are incredibly strong IMHO.

You can drag a (late) Robin sideways with a similar point. Not tried it with a GTE mind, but for my own safety I'd have absolutely no concern fitting belts up to them.

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

I have to say that the survival rate for Coupes is quite staggering my view! Can't believe so many are still alive and accounted for.

Oh I just meant one of these. But I'm glad you've had fun searching for made to fit stuff!

As I say, might not gain you anything or indeed could be entirely wrong, but they are in my mind more "compact"

Life might be a bit easier if you use a face plate takeoff rather than a sandwich plate and mushroom head. That said you would probably want angled pipe connectors so maybe not much if any clearance gained!

Register, buy it, sell me those good looking early seats, and that will pay twice over for the fee.
