  1. I was only wondering about that particular road, which seemed to finish at Gerardmer, but I was having difficulty finding it on my map.
  2. @Busybee Haith, could you possibly post a few waypoints for the route in your post from 14 July, above? I can't read enough of it on the computer screen! Thanks
  3. Drove the SC in hot sunshine the other day and these vents were a godsend!
  4. If only I'd known. I passed your front door last September!
  5. (Looks like the bumper/valence is being sold by Kenny Senior.) Various other bits 'n' pieces: - really like that engine lid grille you've chosen. Suits the car. - sound deadening doesn't have to involve all that much Dynamat (it's heavy). Just in selective places, middle of bigger panels, etc. The main place you seem to benefit from it is on the parcel shelf and where the rear seat-backs used to be. Then closed-cell foam (6mm and 12mm) and that wadding stuff (trade name Hydroweld) for other areas, e.g. instead of the rather heavy rubber covering for the rear seat wells. I found the Sound Deadening Shop at Berinsfield, near Wallingford, Oxfordshire, were a good supplier. Closed-cell foam can be ordered with peel-off backing, i.e. it's self-adhesive, or you can use Dodo spray-on glue to fix it in place. - another vote for EB Motorsport's fibreglass products. - as SP72 says, deleting the sunroof is a fair old bit of work, but it saves 10.5kg, plus another 500g if you go to the trouble of stripping out all of its wiring including the switch.
  6. Looking very clean and tidy, a pale grey/green LHD 3.2 with whale tail seen near Newbury yesterday.
  7. Hi, you may have done Ice Drive Sweden already, but if not, may I mention that I've done it and it's great. The Flynns, who run it, do so in a more relaxed and easy-going way than most of these kinds of operations. However, the location on the lake is not the easiest place to find, so I drew out a sketch map of how to find it, and could probably dig it out if you're interested. We stayed at the Kjolen Hotel in Ostby, in the Trysil district of Norway and so the map shows the route from there.
  8. @Type911 Wow, that was quick! Ordered Monday afternoon and arrived 9am this morning, Wednesday. Many thanks.
  9. Like the car, like the approach. I've also gone Wevo shifter, and you've kinda got it right, you have to train yourself not to shift too aggressively. But it does improve the shift and with a polished gear shift turret, looks the business. You need to get the precision shift joint for the rear coupling, too. Looking forward to updates!
  10. Sorry, being a bit slow on the uptake, I've only just noticed the link in SP72's post - so I've ordered one online now. Thanks to all concerned in this thread for all the info.
  11. @Type911 Just found this thread - may I order one of these bushes, please?
  12. I used CY Finishes in Arnhem Road, Newbury some years ago, and their work was good and affordable. 01635 43860.
  13. I would suggest asking a lot more about corrosion correction and the corresponding fabrication work. Unless you know otherwise, suspect both B pillars (especially around the engine lid release pull handle), the kidney bowls, sills, the areas around the rear lights and the area around the oil tank aperture in the engine bay; then the bottom corners of the windscreen and rear screen; and maybe around the impact bumper mounts. Look particularly for any previous fabrication repairs. Fabrication can take much longer than painting.
