July 2021 update

My coupe is finally back on the road having passed the mot this week. It needed a front calliper, which I managed to get a new one, and front pads. The 3 year old fuel didn’t seem to have caused too many issues.

Driving to the garage I had a big issue losing the rev counter and various warning lights coming on, but managed to keep the engine going. It turned out to be the alternator. Managed to get a new one and changed the the battery at the same time.

Drove beautifully on the way back. Back in the garage at home until the 1st August then will tax it.

I think it’s due a cam belt change now, so that’s something else to look at.

Congrats on the MoT Simon! Definitely worth changing the timing belt if it's been sat for 3 years! :wink: :D

Excellent Simon! Congrats on your beautiful coupe, it still looks as fantastic as ever. I remember looking At your coupe many years ago with great envy. I still do.
