  5. Morning Bud. Just to let you know I didnt get that S3 n/a yesterday. Went to finalise the deal and he jacked the price up by 3k as he said he nw had others interested so I just siad well keep it, a deals a deal and walked away. Hpwever, I did get the little barn find I discovered. 1971 M100 turbo, 47k genuine miles on the clock with documents to prove so a busy day yesterday and got her home last night. Once again, now the work begins. Rear brakes all seized up with sitting with the handbrake on for so long. The sad part was the lady I bought her off, her husband is a well trained mechanic and just ignored it, along with several other issues I think. Hence the split in the relationship and the car for sale.

      Bummer on the s3 - but a result on the m100 - that's a nice little deal ?

  8. Barry,

    Where did you get your fans/radiator stuff?  How much did that run?

    I'm not happy when I'm at a stop light from more than 2 minutes ( or stopped at a train signal) since my water temp goes to the Red.  Wondering if new rad/fans would help?

     

    Thanks,

    Bill

      I had my read recored to 3 row - cost £250 at a rad shop.

      fans came from eBay and are listed for kit cars. I'm sure they were 10" and were about £15 each. 

      Never ever had hot running issues with my car - I've never known what it was like before as I swapped this stuff as soon as I got the car since the rad was leaking
