    I was missing one so made new out of solid round bar drilled & tapped welded to flat bar , thicker than original to compensate for the offset . Chris
  3. On my 69 6 it’s mounted in the engine bay ,passenger side inner wing. Chris
  4. Yes it will just sit on the arches . There is a specific hood bag that covers it to tidy it up visually , secures to poppers inside of hardtop . Unless storage is an issue I wouldn’t leave in the car , takes up a lot of space & is quite heavy. Chris

    Hi Harald. PM sent. Chris


  7. Definitely worth fitting an oil temp gauge , not only will it probably show you an oil cooler is not necessary for normal or fast road use but will also indicate when your oil is warm enough to extend your engine from cold .A longer time than you might think . I removed my oil cooler after fitting a gauge .My cooler did not have a stat fitted in line . Chris
  8. I just put a switch in the permanent live to usb rather than ignition controlled . Chris
  9. Yes they should .I put hardtop, on catch front screen bolts first as they can be fiddly then fit (23) after . Chris
  10. Thanks for that ,I wonder could it have been more for export cars . Is yours a uk car ?
  11. Hi interesting you mention blue lighting for instruments on early 6 .I have never come across this .Both the 5 I had & my now 69 six have been clear. Chris
  12. Hi I have the 45mm oval filters no more room at the time due to GT6 inlet manifolds. With a TWM now fitted I could just about clear 63mm ones (due to inner wing clearance) .I have 25mm clearance just above minimum I believe.I shortened the intake trumpets to achieve this .Its been fine for 20+years ,not best clearance but I prefer this type of full size filter. Chris
  13. I remember the car & owner in Torquay in the 70’s . Seem to recall it with a hardtop fitted . Chris
