Awesome! You must be itching to start the reassembly, and even to just see the car shiny. I'm really looking forward to seeing it myself!

Oh yes, absolutely itching to get on with it.
No progress in the last couple of weeks, trying not to hassle them too much, but also making sure I keep in contact.
I bought some replacement wheel centre cap bolts from the UK which I think will fit - they're actually from a Renault. But they sent the key without the bolts - doh!

Called in and had a chat today - bonnet is looking like new in black primer now and I've seen the paint, in a tin, looks good :)

They had the bumpers test fitted and there's some more metalwork to do to make them sit properly at the front. There's another repair on the front crash bar area which looked a bit untidy but I was going to leave it as it would be invisible under the grille.

So another day's work to pull that apart and fix it properly.

Oh and the car's no longer running - looks like maybe fuel pump, probably wiring as it has had a pump put on from a different car to get it going and the wiring's not the tidiest. Chances are that got damaged then they fixed the hole in the floor nearby.
I seem to recall Steve telling me about robbing a pump from one of his other cars.

Start with the fuel pump relay. It should have a fuse in it.

Rob the fuel pump wiring is dodgy inside by the battery.  It's the single black(?) wire twisted to a green(?) wire that runs the pump.  Give it a tweak with the ignition on to hear the pump running before trying to crank it over.
It took me quite a while to find it when trying to get the car going originally.  It's just old an needs a tidy up.
You should have no trouble with the pump and filter, both new.  But yes the pump was designed for a CIS 911 so much the same specs for the time I had the car.  There was a good unit on the Coupe GT that I hope you kept!

Thanks mate. I didn't keep the GT fuel pump and I'm kinda kicking myself about that.

Thanks mate. I doubt it's the pump, more likely disturbed wiring.

I went to the garage to do some sorting out of the many quattro parts. It has been a long time since I stripped it and I've forgotten where everything is. It's labelled but not sorted.
But I ended up doing something else. The rear plastic COUPE panel from the quattro has some cracks i it, but the one from the donor GT is much better, so I decided I'd use the GT one, then noticed that the quattro one has a fog light. Swapping it over became a two hour job with a Dremel but it's in there.

Got it cut out then realised the GT one was silvered inside.

I received my strut top tool from Ebay today to take apart the GT struts (and it'll be useful for the quattro. It only fits one strut, bloody nuts are different.

Whats the car?

Alpine A110
Cost to date about €35,000 but that is still way less than half the cost of just buying one outright and he did buy it from his father for €1.00 after being stored under a tarpulin for 20 years
