What actually happened to that Coupe?

Re: Broom Yellow HLX

Paid for but still in Buxton until I can get a trailer wide enough cheap enough or pop over and fix the brakes so she can be driven home on trade plates.

The Barchetta wheels are in the classifieds now so I can get tyres for the original wheels.

Having missed this week's trackday there are two more. One in June I'll like the standard Coupe MOT'd for and one in September I'd like the Coupe improved for.

Re: Broom Yellow HLX



I've already fixed the front brakes so I may as well see what else is wrong before I get the old bus tested.

One thing that continues to bug me. Three years ago I bought the special tool for doing up CV boot straps and to date I have never had a CV or boot kit with the old style straps. Even this kit comes with the fold over push the flaps to lock type. Typical of me to buy the right tool for the job just as it becomes obsolete.

Re: Broom Yellow HLX

The Hey Ladies wheels are on eBay...

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2623488540...84.m1555.l2649

...to pay for new (better than P6000) tyres for the original wheels.

I know Pirelli's are the factory option but they're too skittish for me.

Re: Broom Yellow HLX

Why don't you put the wheel details i.e. size and offset in the advert? Would help buyers avoid your mistake, unless you just want that maybe?

Re: Broom Yellow HLX



Updated my CV today.

Pain in the cheeks of a faff to do. The "O" ring that was supposed to be holding the old joint to the shaft had been replaced with you could have guessed it black silicone (Tiger Seal). The new unit didn't have a groove for the "O" ring to lock to so I had to take it apart and open one on my mates lathe using the old one was a guide. I also managed to split the bottom bearing boot.

While I was looking for a new bearing I found a pair of wishbones for 50.

Should be simple enough.

All done. Just in time for the prelude to storm Katie to wash the greasy hand prints from my front wing.







Shiny brakes and penis spoke wheels.

Re: Broom Yellow HLX

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2819712628...84.m1435.l2649

I was robbed.

No bidding activity for three days and the car was 155 with me the highest bidder then with three seconds to go some computer bid 200.01

This would have been perfect as I need to practice spraying red and it would have been cheaper that fixing my yellow one (at this rate).

Vehicle listings go up by 5 usually so I'm beginning to think there's an eBay app' out there because this one...

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2623465252...84.m1435.l2649

...sold for 300.01 with three seconds to go as well.

Cheating bastards!

Re: Broom Yellow HLX

That's why I try not to eBay cool old Fiats...I'd soon have a shedload of them and no space (or cash) to keep them. 200 for a good running Bravo is almost indecently cheap.
