  1. Also on those drains and the one in the fuel filler its worth blasting them with an air gun - amazing the shite that comes out
  2. Love this - I had one this colour as a stop gap and ran it for nearly 3 years! They are great fun! If you need bits look for Chrysler crossfire parts - I had a wiper mechanism and bonnet catch and they are much cheaper - but same parts - even have the merc badge on them! I have some wheels centres in black and I think a fuel filter I never used - if they are of any use you are welcome to them for postage cost And top down heater on in all weather - just stop for no fucker if its raining
  3. Update - car starts, battery not immobiliser - happy again!
  4. Well I’ve been fairly crap at updating this - but then I have done very little! Only been on a couple of short trips but the exhaust has to go - needs a cat too unless I leave de-cat. Have traced the leak to the arial so will try and sort that tomorrow - trip to u pull it for a fresh one and some other bits I think. I do fear I may have borked the immobiliser as the clock and radio have reset when I was messing around - I’ve just put on charge and the battery is reading empty so fingers crossed that I’ve just run the battery down while I have been messing - but suspect I am kidding
  5. Looking at tyres seems to be interchangeable between 195s and 205s. Any experience on whether I’m likely to notice a big difference as the price adds up when buying 4!
  6. Well didn’t get to do much today but a wash off and good look over - a few daylight pics to evidence! Overall really pleased - apart from the back arch and a few dings its in really good shape found a few jobs to do - main thing to investigate is leak on boot into headlining - I think its the grommet/tube that takes wires to the boot will take the spoiler off and investigate. Tyres is still top of the list - much fun as it is sliding round roundabouts!!
  7. Well not the most exciting or epic collection thread - a giddy 8 miles return home and sadly no petrol station shot! Procured from @dome s tame Clio Fettler - viewed yesterday and collected this evening. Despite the quality of new iPhone pics are a bit pants and will get some better ones up tomorrow when detailed inspection complete! @dome many thanks for the intro and nice to meet you this evening! Seller kindly put back on stock springs as I wasn’t enjoying the lowered experience!! Main issue is the exhaust which has been fettled but loud - feels like being punched in the head w

    My new e-furty

    Love this - as posted in your wanted thread here is mine - just a couple of years younger but very similar history - elderly owner etc - but I have had mine 10 years. So rare to have lower spec that haven’t been molested. Mine has power steering but otherwise similar spec to yours. Great to drive and always gets attention. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to give me a shout - I used mine daily for the first year but now it’s occasional Sunday toy! Mine is Brilliant Red. Great purchase - I think you got a really good deal there!

  10. Got any more pics? Looking at mot history suspension corrosion is thing to watch but been there a couple of years. As others have said its mot roulette but I say go for it!
  11. Sounds reasonable money with that mileage. I looked at a mint low mileage one which was £1k more than that. £1250 isn’t a stupid offer though. Looks nice apart from lacquer peel

Also this later one also near by - both look quite pleasing! htt
  13. Cheers for the update. I fancy the roof off action but to be honest its probably not worth it for the 2 weeks a year I would use like that!
