Re: Mercedade's '97 Vitesse Lux

Excellent work Mark, you've gone a bit further than i have so far but you'll really notice the difference when you drive it! :wink: :D

I do intend to add more soundproofing and already fitted some to the inside of the boot/rear 1/4 panels.

Re: Mercedade's '97 Vitesse Lux

You'll find the sound deadening mat makes the car a much nicer place to be Mark. Also if you extend it to cover the cabin side of the wheel arches front and rear, it's amazing how much noise comes from that area. I used some 5mm soundproofing on my Sterling and basically did the entire floorpan in t...

Re: Mercedade's '97 Vitesse Lux

Hope you get to the bottom of it Adrian, if you happen to park facing downhill (even slightly) the front can fill up and leave the back dry from a leak on the back end. It can even give false negatives as the spare wheel well can fill up and as you brake or drive/park down hill, the water again runs...

Re: Mk2 centre console

I'm still looking Adrian and still have a few places to investigate. Half the trouble is thanks to the weather over the past few months things have been piled (aka dumped!) in the wrong places so i need to get back to some semblance of order to be able to find anything!

Re: Re: 1994 BRG Vitesse Fastback

I found some old video clips so cobbled together a short video inNnPKMyZ0I Nice video Jim - liked the bit where you passed that Porsche! I think it is mainly the bolt seized in the arm, crack the rear bolt loose too to help the arm sections move. It took a lot of force, one foot in the wheel arch f...

Re: Mk2 centre console

As i'm fairly sure you've found Adrian, the wodden panels are heald on by nuts on the back and below that is basically a sheet of plastic, similar to what the poverty spec models got if they didn't have cubby holes. I may be wrong on this but do you remember the old spindle mount to DIN slot radio a...

As Rimmers are out of stock of the right hand hoses, it might be an idea to try ebay : https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BRAKE-HOSE-LINE-PIPE-FRONT-RIGHT-ABS-SL-4154-P-NEW-OE-REPLACEMENT/264634040367 Right Hand Hose ^^^^^ https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BRAKE-HOSE-LINE-PIPE-FRONT-LEFT-KK-FT5232-L-NEW-OE-REPLACE...
