My brother got one not long ago, it is sweeeeeet. But he 'says' he has to sell it as he cant keep it running and in good condition I showed him this thread hoping he might keep it but don't think he's changed his mind. Not sure when he's selling but if anyones interested i'll find out. Its in great condition too.
anyways, absolutely lovely 6. I'll keep track of this thread, BBS's and a slight dro[ will look awesome!

OK, so after a session in the workshop, I have myself a sort-of working 635CSi.
Jobs done: - Kenlowe fan mounted and wired. - Hub assembly fitted. - Cooling system replaced. - New non-metric wheels temporarily fitted (off for refurbishment and new rubber soon).
Apologies for the awful photography. A Blackberry, petrol station and being in a bit of a rush don't produce the best results.
- Service (oil and filters) - Brake upgrade. - Get to the bottom of steering and suspension clunk. - Replace saggy old springs. - Clean and Waxoyl its hull. - Polybush (is there anybody that specialises in re-bushing classics?). - Re-locate fuel pump and filter to original position. - Have rims refurbed with mirror-polished lips, silver centres and chrome bolts. - Try and solve frontward scrubbage. Suggestions? - Machine polish. - Press into daily service.
Oh, and this is the moment I realised the cause for the unnervingly toxic plumes of hell smoke - a forgotten rubber mounting for the Kenlowe, which I'd left on the exhaust manifold for safe keeping (the bit on the bottom right out of focus)...
