Post Re: Pete's Coupe Number 2
Unless anyone really wants the tub (bring several boxes as it's sure to not survive any further moves!), then I'm edging towards cutting off the serviceable part of the tub (rear frame) which might come in handy, and removing all the GTM specific parts elsewhere around the tub (brackets etc.)... Don't see the point in attempting to salvage this tub and am favouring one of the alternative approaches.. though I still have the other Coupe so may make up one car out of the best parts... not sure yet.

These are some parts that I've found on the car:
Reverse 'A' arms at the rear (obviously!); Howley water heated inlet manifold; GTM exhaust manifold; 10" wheel disc brakes (not sure which size as yet - didn't realise there were 2 sizes to be honest) which apparently could be worth as much as I paid for the car :shock: ; and one of those oil filter mounted oil coolers that are plumbed in to the cooling system.

As for the fibreglass parts, they're in ok condition considering and are restorable..

Pete, Surely your signature needs updating to count the second Coupe! :wink:

It was, but I didn't want to make the final decision until I'd had a closer look... and what a look it turned out to be! :shock:
