Re: Photos of coupe inner body section needed.

Thank you very much Georg,yes that is what I was looking for. I would also like to ask if you know how the front wing attaches to the outer sill where there would be a visible vertical groove. I would guess this would be brazed/gas welded, certainly not spot or mig welded.

Photos of coupe inner body section needed.

I would be grateful if someone has a photo of the panel between the front wing/fender and the A pillar box section where the door hinges mount to. The lower section of mine was just thin air due to rust and I need to fabricate a new one. These are photos of the area and the finished hinge mounting b...

Re: Which color for my 2000 coupe dino?

I too have a 2000 coupe that I am restoring which was originally white.I am struggling to decide what colour to repaint it.In my opinion the white does not enhance the car and if it is not kept pristine all the time, dirt/grime/rust looks far worse on this colour.But the only other colour thats suit...

Re: Which color for my 2000 coupe dino?

What colour was it originally and what are you thinking if doing it now.I feel most colours do not suit the 2000 coupe as much as on the 2400 coupe.

Re: Sun Visor Fitment

I have a large crack in the middle of mine that needs repairing and would say it is a bit more tricky than I first thought.You could glue on some dense foam and buy a trim repair kit to finish it off.

Re: All blacked areas on dino coupe

Hi Gary,thanks for the reply.On my car the area you see the hinges mounted to the body when you open the door or the door port as you call it had been painted black over the original body colour.It is very difficult to know if this was original or not but I will go with your version.

Re: Drain holes on coupe

I had a look and could find no evidence for a drain outlet.I would guess that maybe it might lead to the leading edge of the wheel arch and exit via the sill which has a number of shrouded openings.looking at the photos there is quite a difference to the vent lower positioning.

Re: Drain holes on coupe

Unfortunately this is not my car but is the only suitable image I could find.I am about to weld in some self made panels to the lower wing area and want to make it as per original.I will look for a drain tube outlet on the rear vents now.

Drain holes on coupe

should the 2.0 coupe have drain holes on the lower rear wings as per this photo.I would imagine it would get alot of incoming water off the tyres and road surface in that location.
