who re upholsters Coupe or any seats

Hi Gys. For colouring vinyl seats try vinylcoat. One of ou r members used it to turn tan seats black and my god it works a treat. Had the rear seat in my coupe re covered by a firm in Preston but I had to do a lot of re gluing. Don't know what they use but it's crap.

Hi Guys. There's nothing wrong with well set up points and the tuners will tell you that up 4500 rpm there is virtually no difference. Well done to you Cheers Phil D.

coupe rear axle

Hi guys. So the decision has been made (forced) The axle is coming out and going to a specialist in Preston who says he can turn it around in 2 to 3 days. I'll have another chat with him. But I did manage to win a rev counter on e-bay. I'll let you know. Cheers Phil D.
