Re: Question about Dinoplex C AEC101CA

Ben, be happy to have an original and working set of Dinoplex and coil. This is worth a fortune. I'd only clean the exterior with a mild detergent and a brush. Do not use any abrasive.

Re: Door check strap

Many aluminium fittings have been modified with thread and screws as seen on Georg's images. I was lucky that mine have been untouched. I've used pins and only had to convert Georg's rollers a little bit to make his solution fit again. You can see it in the German thread I've linked.

Re: Door check strap

It should be possible to find those aluminium fittings from one of the many wrecked coupes. Maybe Alfredo joins in and can offer them. I've adopted Georg's solution. It works pretty good.

Re: Nice looking 2L Spider at Dorotheum

The Spider is at least a class below the Coupe in every aspect except the engine and the susprnsion. It doesn't even have a roof :)
I've also inherited a leather interior from the previous owner. However, I'd like to have the original velour seats. But this is hard to realise.

Is this really plus 15% fee... or the overall price for the vendor?
The website says: ** Purchase price incl. charges and taxes
Still an impressive price ...

Re: Nice looking 2L Spider at Dorotheum

Major drawback to me is the interior. It's pretty nice work and fine leather, but those cars never looked like this when new. That's a problem with many otherwise good restaurations. I think, this is overrestoring.

Re: Engine bay lights

I don't think that they are connected in line with the main lights. The switch connects to ground.
But what about checking the wiring diagram? ;)

Re: Front coil spring making contact with tire

When fully extended, the spring coild doesn't stay concentric with the shock absorber. It buckles to the outside and touches the tire. Maybe this is not even a flaw or problem.

Re: Five year restoration...complete!

Congratulations! What a beauty!
Would have been in time for the Revival.
One reason more for looking forward to Goodwood Revival 2021. I was able to shift my reservation to next year without losing the down payment for the house. I'll be there if things get back to normal.

Don't care! This is normal.
