Re: Brand new sills

I still have their details if you would like me to pass them on. P.S. Sorry for absence. Life is kinda mad busy, emotio...

Re: Remade bumper bracket

Know the quality of the sills. :)

Considering getting 3 Fuel Fillers too!!!

Then I am probably going to Polybush the 2 Vitesse's and the 2.7 coupe.

Could be an expensive year. And a busy one!!!
1st, gotta finish the Fastback Vitty before I do the sills, engine and box on the Coupe Vitty!

Re: Brand new sills

These sills are damned fantastic. Drivers side fit went really well. Despite the MASSIVE corrosion inside.
Car still has to have the passenger side done. Other things have taken a priority.
It will be worth the wait. After all, its a V plate Nightfire Fastback Vitesse!

Re: Remade bumper bracket

I will have an investigation of my fleet and work out how many cars need them. It's at least 1, and possibly 3!!!

I was sad when I heard. His museum is on my list of Must do's.

His manuals have made me who i am, an dcapable of what I do, along with watching and learning from my dad when I were a kid as he followed his manuals in the 70's & 80's

Re: 2019

Happy New Year Everyone. My aim this year is for a minimum of 3 of my 800's legal and Rebuilt. 2 are done. Got both the Vitesse's to do. Finish the other sill on the Nightfire fastback, then both sills, engine & box rebuild and rebush the Coupe. And hopefully paint the bumpers on the Nightfire saloo...

Re: Sixth Light Finisher

Sorry, can't help you with the part.
However, I do like the idea of Seek-n-Seal. I have a few things I could use that on, and not all 800 related!
primary use is going to be that really awkward and annoying panel join on boot drain chanel on the Coupé near the rear window

Re: Manalishis Mk 1 827 Vitesse (manual)

I'd be more interested to know what that modification to the wiring is. That red wire joine dto the yellow with the blue Butt connector isnt standard. And then you've got the taped up red wire. Also, your under dash bar is black. On all my Mk2's, its been galvanised metal. I know its galvanised as I...
