Re: Ma vie avec "la bête verte"...

Well, the whereabouts of the original shims is a mystery only the mechanic in the garage could solve - forgot to ask him... The new spacer came from QRG so should be the right size. And no, the mechanic is not looking at the play in the diff - what he explained me is that he tightens the bolts at th...

Re: Ma vie avec "la bête verte"...

Hello all, and a belated happy new year :drum: I would love to tell you that the shims provided by Ian (and one more time BIG thank you!) solved the problems, but as you might have already guessed... no. I went to see the garage one week after I delivered the shims, and I was greeted with "hello, go...

Re: Ma vie avec "la bête verte"...

Hello all, news from the garage - but no Christmas wonder... So they found the source for the whining - as expected the pairing of pinion and crown wheel, where they found some movement. Re-shimmed it should be okay now, though they report that while turning there is one small spot where is moves a ...

Re: Ma vie avec "la bête verte"...

[album]1755[/album] There a pieces missing in the axle spacer, yes. Vertical pin supposed to be okay, was replaced. Replacement parts came from an axle specialist in the UK called AJS engineering since GW and QRG at the time had not all in stock. Oh, as I check the order, I see the spacer was also r...

Re: Ma vie avec "la bête verte"...

So with another few weeks of delay...the bête has finally found its way up on the car lift of my garage. Diff cover is off, so I could see the damage for the first time myself: [album]1754[/album] I translated them all of the input I got into French, hopefully they will take it in account... Wonder ...

Re: 2017 Event Calendar France

Hello everyone, as you might have noticed, 2017 has moved into its own thread - probably a good idea so we don't mix things up too much. Also, it is now the Event Calendar France , though it is not meant only for French events. Any international event like the RSSOC International Rally will be in he...

Re: Ma vie avec "la bête verte"...

Some of you might be wondering... what the hack is going on with la bête ? Well, the problem is not only the car, it's the garage - too much work to do and no one to do it. Seems like their mechanic did do the work he was supposed to do a) not, or b) wrong. At least my car is only affected by the fa...

Paintshop - any recommendations?

Hi all,

as the title already suggests... I am looking for a paint shop - one that knows how to work with Scimitars.
So if you know a place you have had good experience(s) with - let me know!

Thanks -
Jörg
