  1. So, my friend is happy to share info, The half brown leather car that was fire damaged JIW7130 is now being refitted after painting, chassis number 1136. I have asked about his other white dry sump, I’ll share when I get any info.
  2. I honestly don’t know the plate of the other car in the private collection however if it started with OPW I am certain I would have noticed, assuming it had plates fitted when I saw it that is. I will message my distant friend to see if he is willing to share any info, but I anticipate he will want to remain anonymous etc.
  3. I think we need to be cautious with partial plates. My car originally had a cherished plate so my OPW888W is sympathetic and age correct but not original. There is of course OPW 654X, I know some one who has an Eclat with a OPW xxxW plate on it that could donate it’s plate and I have seen a copper car as per photo (alongside mine) at Brands a couple of years ago....
  4. I have found an old receipt that states the car I sold for restoration car was registered JIW7130 when I sold it 2014. It had half brown leather. Dvla states that it has not yet returned to the road but I have seen it at 90% restored ca 2016. I don’t have any other details. Sorry.
  5. Great info, thanks for sharing. There are two more Monaco white dry dumps with brown (not tobacco) interiors in a private collection in the U.K. I have previously encouraged the owner of them to join this forum and share the info but so far at least they wish to remain anonymous, which I will continue to respect. One car had 4 stud hubs and comps. I previously owned the other one of them (which had five stud bbs wheels on the front, rear hubs not present) so if I can find any info on it in my records I will share that. (It was an ex Trevsked fire damaged donor vehicle which I sold on that has now been restored.)
  6. Hi. Thats correct regarding tobacco and no roof stereo and no air con. I am uncertain how many are left but I can vouch for this one! I have got a correct roof stereo, do you know anyone that can fix them? I have the manual for it so I understand the need for amps etc. Mine crackles (off the car) but not managed any sound! Thanks
  7. Hi guys. After 6 months I see I have a question to answer! My car (ex Trevsked) is alive and well and already on the register, 1035. It has the single middle supports for the tail gate louvres btw. Thanks!
  8. Thanks for all the replies. I got a unit secondhand which I thought was the same but when it arrived I saw that it had no earth connection. I plugged it in cautiously and everything works perfectly. I can’t explain why it works but I am happy that it is completely fixed for less than a tenner!
  9. Hi My intermittent wiper is stuck on all the time the ignition is on. Any thoughts please? Dry sump turbo if that makes a difference. I am aware that there is an intermittent wiper control unit but I don’t know where it is or what it looks like! Many thanks! Graham
  10. Hi, there was previous discussion about when the single support for the tailgate louvres was replaced with 2. My car 1035, has the single supports if this helps. Great register, good work guys.
  11. 1035 unknown build date but first registered 01/08/81, Monaco white, tobacco interior, G Jones, 4 stud compomotives with the later style front wheels, no roof stereo or air con originally, more modern cooled turbo fitted. Car Ex Trevsked.
  12. Jonny (The Pits) is correct, my car is ex "Trevsked" aka Trevor (top bloke by the way).
