Re: Fog light covers yes or no

Hi,
if you look to my profile picture, you can guess what I voted for. :)

No seriously, I think it looks very good and I'm for white color as it is.

Re: Paint code

I see! Ok.
And no XSC code on sticker in boot, right?
Solar gold should be XSC 1366.

Re: Paint code

Hi,
looks like solar gold to me too.
Is there some XSC code on sticker in boot?

Or try body plate decoder. What is on position 73 on your body plate?

Re: 2.8 fuel pump

I hope too! Because I don't want to cut original wires to change conectors.
That original black and yellow connectors look like have some little movement against pump. But I don't try anything to prevent breaking it.

Re: 2.8 fuel pump

Hi, is it possible to change electric connectors from old pump to new one? There are two long connectors (black and yellow) on old original pump and you only click counterpart connector on it. Like this: https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/QU8AAOSwDlNc7sP4/s-l1600.jpg But new pump has only thread to fit ...

Re: Drum brake cylinders and handbrake cable

So it's interesting, everything looks ok to me. You can try to abrade that rusty edge (next to braking surface) on drum, but it doesn't look too high. And try to keep brake shoes in centre (both pistons on brake cylinder push in the same distance) while you put on the drum. Position of shoes (moveme...

Re: Drum brake cylinders and handbrake cable

I asked Dan that early on. He said the cable was loose and floppy at the time. It was definitely all loose and floppy - I have no problem trying to loosen it off and trying again, but as it is the passenger side it is the metal rod rather than the cable so no idea if that makes a difference? Yes, c...

Re: Drum brake cylinders and handbrake cable

........ I can push the pistons in further but the shoes don't follow as the arm is as tight as it goes... Hi, if I am understand it correctly, you can fully push in both pistons of brake cylinder in same time, but brake shoes don't go together, because of handbrake arm. Arm can't close more. Are t...

Re: Andrews stunning 2.8i

Thanks Tom. It's an odd shade, really. I think it's supposed to be Caspian, but when it was restored by the previous owner several years ago, it ended up being a light shade of Paris blue. I didn't like it as much as some other colours, but it's grown on me over the years. Andrew. At the first sigh...
