Rear light cluster

The advantage of the Bulgarian ones is that you can remove/replace the bulbs from the outside - you do need to do a bit of rework on the holes in the GRP though. You get what you pay for - some people have fitted ( circular ) LED clusters which look less like the original lamps.

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

No he had it delivered to our house and then flew over to drive it to our local ferry - he did / maybe still has the SS1 we sold to a German who was working with Alf in Ireland. There is a story behind the drive from our house to the ferry - too long to retell on here tonight.

1st job to do on a Essex engine if it has not already been done is to fit a steel or alloy timing gear - saves lot of tears in the end.

A few questions about SE5

I have used 195 tyres since 1983 - even tried 205s but did not like them as much - never tried 185 so cannot comment on the original spec. 195 have never caused any problems for me. The original pinning of the fuel pipe was done with a mills pin.

Where in Germany do you live - its a big place. I'm sure you will like the GTE - at least you can repair it yourself, no computer needed to find out what is wrong with it and most if not all of he problems that can occur people on this site have already had.

I am a Geordie and lots of Dutch words are similar to our local dialect - speaking some German does help although you Dutch do speak very quickly which does not help

Fuel tank sender unit

Water runs down the outside of the neck - the is a rubber seal around the top of the neck but its not much use - I have a different filler cap which is better than the original. I cut the straps and fitted new ones SS of course - made them myself from SS strips.
