  1. Instead of using the elegant door handles from an R107 Mercedes decided that the handles for the C126 SEC should look like cheap shoe-trees. If you want to keep flogging an old model despite it looking very curvy compared to the new straight edged design, just stick some a couple of slabs of plastic in where the old rear lights used to be.
  2. New Flying Spur is pretty hot in less sporty spec.
  3. That looks Korean. I don't much like the proportions of the small saloon segment that's become popular again. I look at a well kept E30 as a fantastic bit of design. Will I say the same about this in 30 years? I doubt it.
  4. A Lancia Kappa Coupe with an Isuzu 1.7TD conversion?

  6. Very jealous. Those velour armchairs look just the thing for a long trip on a miserable day.

  9. Hoping I can avoid a new tank. Haven't checked the postage from the US, but probably horrendous. Awesome, I shall get that ordered and definitely do plenty of practice. I figure if I'm going to do them all I may as well learn a new skill . Spray on and clear is perfect too, definitely going with that.
  10. It's been a while and not much has happened. I sold the Espace to a chap who had bid and lost when I bought it and the clutch cable snapped on him immediately so he ended up in my lounge for 3 hours awaiting recovery. The Probe had a sticky caliper which then meant pumping the brakes a bit blew one of the pipes and since it wasn't running properly anyway I thought I'd go through it and unsurprisingly it's turned into a much bigger project than anticipated. Since the hard lines are hard to access and probably original I decided the best thing to do was to replace them all, the nuts were the worst part, they'd become very crumbly. Since there's always been an intermittent fuel issue and it helps with the brake pipes, I decided to drop the tank. Definitely worth doing since it was full of crap and I'm hoping it will sort the fuel issues along with a new pump and hardware (it was almost as cheap as getting the hardware bits separately). The tank is ok externally, some surface rust where the rubber coating has separated, but it should clean up nicely. This is what happens when you put a car in storage for 20 years, there was loads of crap on the strainer. Got some Bilt Hamber stuff ordered to hopefully clean out the tank and then I can get back to the brake pipes. Does anyone have any advice on a good but cheap brake pipe flaring kit? Also what should I do to protect the underside of the Probe? it's all original and very nice and I want to keep it that way.
  11. I love these and it'll look awesome with that interior. Perforated definitely the way to go.
  12. That looks like a fantastic buy. The colour really does up the tastiness factor significantly.

    That Twingo is superb. I must own one someday.
