Nope. Classic Heroes have only very recently taken it into stock and have yet to advertise it.
But this is the car that made £100k four years ago, so I wonder if CH will be tempted to ask a similar price for it.
I was referring to the M3 that they are showing as “sold”.

Re: "M" #464 in UK.

Hello folks. I’ve just joined bigcoupe.com I’m the owner of #464 in the UK and bought it back in December 2018. I must’ve missed the eBay post last year but certainly a fraud. Welcome to the forum! So you bought it at the Barons auction? Were you the internet bidder and if so, had you viewed the ca...

If the rings are made of aluminium, put a smear of grease on them to avoid galvanic corrosion, otherwise you may have difficulty removing the wheels in the future 😉

Re: windshield spray nozzle remove and replace help

Sorry, I was referring to a S2 car. I think you need to remove the water piping then unscrew the nut. Why didn’t the painter remove them before he did the spraying? You will have to remove them very carefully to avoid ruining the new paint :wink:

They just clip in. Lift the bonnet and ease the tags with a thin-bladed small screwdriver.

“hornetcars” on eBay.co.uk have one listed at the moment for £2,800. Not cheap, but it’s the first one I have ever seen up for sale!

BTW, I have no connection with the seller.

Hi Jose, I take your point and am grateful we don’t have such expensive labour rates over here, nor (for Classic car restorers) such strict environmental regulations 😉

Re: Anyone Ever Bought A Fiberglass or CF Hood from DTM Fiberwerkz?

................ and it lightens the front end which impacts the 57% front weight bias. Compared to the price of getting a damaged hood repaired, that is CHEAP! Hell, just stripping, and painting a "straight" hood could be upwards of $1000. Jose Wow! You guys seem to pay loads of $$$$ for a repaint...

Re: Anyone Ever Bought A Fiberglass or CF Hood from DTM Fiberwerkz?

Surely there must be many “old” bonnets available in the US for much less $$$ than these fibreglass examples? Why would you wish to spend much more money, at the same time as devaluing your motor :-k

Re: Front Headliner Cover Resto

Those plastic clips always break. In the past I’ve drilled holes through the cover and into the locating tabs in the roof. It is then easy to use black-headed self tapping screws to secure the cover. They hardly notice against the black material. Usually the job can be completed with just four screw...

The auction was cancelled yesterday (item no longer available), so I guess it sold off eBay? High bid was £5k.

Where I live in northern Ontario I put my sweet running, rust free example in an online ad service for $10000 which is about £5500 and got one offer of $7000. I declined. Maybe it would be worth putting it for sale in the UK but shipping would be add considerable cost although it is being done. Bea...
