Quarterlight delete kits?

Funnily I have just went the other way. having bought the Coupe 25 years go the quarter lights never opened as the buttons were seized solid - they seem to have been super glued shut. I have just fitted quarter lights which work as they should so now I can let a bit of air in when needed. Why bother...

You have to know the V5C numbers to do it that way and as I sent them back I don't know the numbers - before you say I should not have sent them back - now I know that - before I did not as its 1995 since we last bought car and things have changed since then

DVLA reply

Got a letter from the DVLA at last, together with two V62 forms - they cannot find the V5Cs I sent them 6 weeks after Glynis died in May - still think they are not fit for purpose.

no oil pressure

Remove the dizzy and put a electric drill on the pencil shaft which drives the pump and see if you get oil pressure that way - might save you having to remove the sump

Rear Bumper for sale

The ends of the Coupe bumper are parallel - the 5's bumper widens slightly. The 5 bumper will fit the Coupe it just sticks out a bit more at the sides

WTB - a good, GT SE4 Coupe

Don't take any notice of the mileage as the mileage on mine is currently around 3,000 as the meter resets at 100,000 miles - I suspect its really done 303,000 miles but cannot prove it either way - going by the engine re-furbish etc.
