    Arrow My Coupe update

    Sorry guys, but the coupe wont be at PV, I`m gonna miss it by 2 weeks
    Here`s a few pics from today ...............

    Bonnet pins laying on the l/h side, still to be fitted, I need an angle finder to make a bracket the same angle as the bonnet.


    Boot is virtually finished, except the fuel hose need clipping up under the car, and tidied in the boot ...


    Interior is all in, just need to make a bracket to take the brake bias udjuster ........






    As the rear wheels have been off for quite sometime, I cleaned, waxed and fitted them this morning ...


    Things left to do ......
    1. Fit bonnet pins
    2. Fit brake bias adjuster
    3. Clip up fuel line
    4. Realign propshaft
    5. Program out fault codes with tech 2
    6. MOT
    7. Get doors repainted
    8. Geometry setup.
    9. Get dash/console tidied/retrimmed

    I eventually sorted the gear selector problem, so whilst it was on the axle stands, I "drove" it through the gears, and at 2000rpm I`m doing 80mph, and it redlines at 6500

    Shame it's not going to be at PV, have it down at westerham at the end of June?

    Interior looks great there, great news on the gears being sorted now , any bad vibriations because of the prop needing re alined?

    Whats all those bits tided up in the boot?

    Yes mate, it`ll be at Westerham

    No, no vibration.

    The purple one is the vent, that`s staying put, dont know what els to do with it
    The other is the fuel line, it`s tied up to keep it off the ground, when I drive it round to the 4 poster.
