      Hello Richard, Alister bought it from you and I refurbished it, he still has it, not sure if he wants to sell or not, do you know anyone interested in buying it?

      Regards

      David

  2. Hi Pete Yeah, modern materials as used by Avons today, using the original mould. A premium tyre for sure
  3. Hello everyone, After extensive research.. Looking for a census of owners and specialists who would be prepared in principle, to purchase Avon 205 60 VR14 tyres for their cars and clients. A mould has been found, I believe it may be that of Turbospeeds of the period and will be of the long time missed V speed rating. As we all know there is a very limited choice for this size and no options other than H rating. About time a period high quality tyre was offered to compliment the handling dynamics of our cars. Esprit, Eclat and Elite.... If interested please let me know. We need numbers to make this happen. Regards Rich

  5. Parts spreadsheet update. Elite And Eclat Alloy wheel cars. Front discs are Triumph GT6/Vitesse, as are the pads. Calipers and pads are also fitted to Rover P6B's 3500 68'-76' Ps. I'm going to double check the discs
  6. Hi everyone Looking for a current part number for front calipers for an eclat 521. I understand that the parts cross reference spreadsheet on the forum has a girling number but it's not much use. Being in the trade I'm sure I can get them if I can find a good number to work with. Thanks in advance Rich
  7. Hi Richard Sorry for the late response.. Thanks for the idea re the rear bumper.. i'll try Steve I was really hoping someone would have a clearer shot of the decal than what was on my old car... Anyone? As far as I am aware, there are fewer 521 sprints than 520. The car shown above had more on it from the factory than I expected. Over the other Sprints that I had the car was fitted with; Full vinyl roof Bumper with fogs Extra stripe decal in front of the front wheels BBS Alloys Factory sump guard. So I think it's a little simplistic to say they were just decaled up and shipped out Maybe that car was meant for someone within Rich
  8. Hi Richard Thanks for the message.. I did hear of that story, I think it was Graham Arnold who had backed that up.. According to Andy at archives the first sprint had painted decals which must of proved to be unnecessary due to time and cost, mine is the second sprint which went onto have the vinyl decals, according to the build sheet remarks.. I'm on my third 521 sprint, pure sentiment I must add.. however I have seen quite a few differences between them all.. My first car had a few options, black vinyl roof, BBS type Alloys, Rear fog lamp bumper.. Decals were slightly different, black pin stripe around the decals themselves etc Second sprint being a Dublin car naturally didn't have a Union Jack but was standard in every way Current sprint is standard Pics are of my old car.. Any one who knows where I can obtain these wheels and rear bumper, please let me know! Cheers Rich
  9. Hi everyone Looking if anyone knows where I can locate a Union Jack Sprint decal for the rear panel on my 521 Sprint, or at least have one made up? Mine is missing. Also, as I understand it the very first sprint had painted decals and mine was the first to go vinyl, anyone know if that included the boot lid itself? Regards Rich
