Hi
Anyone know if the door window frames on the coupe are interchangeable with the GTE?
Thanks
Nige.

No, they're not. The Coupe one has a flat top; GTE ones curve upwards more.

This now resides with me (has done for over a year :oops:) and will be the slowest resto ever!

I'm slowly collecting parts to add to the pile it came with.

Hi Jim
Glad to see that the coupe is in good hands! I wish I had a man cave like that!
The good news is that YUK269 is back on the road and receiving ongoing tweaks to a few small issues.
You probably saw my post on GT Facebook page. I will try and load it here.
Best wishes to you and Sarah.
