    As I am about to do the water pump, I would appreciate knowing how you managed to break that piece so I don't do the exact same thing.

    Crap! Sorry that happened. I'll try to avoid that.

    Still beavering away! I was never happy with the brakes on the car so decided to get them completely refurbed along with replacement disks / rotors fitted. Rear calipers came back today and look pretty good I have to say! Still waiting for fronts as they aren't happy with the plating

    Well it took a while but I finally got around to making up some fan shrouds.
    Some old paint buckets came in handy. :)

    Looks like your restoration is progressing nicely.

    Cheers,
    Al

    Well, with a heavy heart (and a certain degree of pressure from the missus), Ive decided to sell my 400. It makes sense really as Im just not using it often enough and I think someone else would benefit much more from it than me. Not really sure where to put it up for sale, but the European market might be of interest being LHD.

    You've invested a lot more than just money on that car. Let's hope you can recoup some of your hard work. Hopefully this car will find an equally passionate new owner.

    I hope so. When I sold my 308 earlier in the year, it was only as I was selling it when I realised how much effort I'd put in and how other people would benefit. Ive always thought how delighted I'd be if a car in this sort of condition turned up at my doorstep!

    Open to offers on this one as I need the space now. Recent photo taken out and about where you can see how straight the lines are

    I only found this thread yesterday. Definitely interested in the car. A impressive in effort in bringing it back to its former glory.

    The new owner got a hell of a deal! After looking through all of the resto pics, you did an amazing job. What a beautiful 400!

    I'd had it advertised since last October, let it go far too cheap and now its being flipped in the UK.
