Re: 1988 Excel SE. Brief Update

I missed it, but hope it is as good as it looked and you are pleased with it. Well done!
Out of interest, what colour and state is your existing interior? I need to redo mine, looking really poor now. :(

Re: First job jobbed - 2 more found !!!

Very impressed with your work especially leather and paint repair. I have a med blue SA which is slowly shedding its skin (rather like a snake does). It would be really helpful if you were to find the time ( :roll: ) to detail exactly how you went about the paint repair. Sanding, base coating and cl...

Re: Possible problem with SA gearbox?

This is very sensible since keeping it in neutral prevents it stalling when you try to move off and it also reduces tyre wear and drastically reduces the chances of getting a speeding fine. I keep mine in neutral all the time! :shock: :cry:

Congratulations Mark!
Welcome to wedge world.
Do not worry about tidying up the bodywork, the worse it looks the better ('cos it will make mine look smarter when parked next to yours at the next gathering. ) :D

Re: Automatic transmission hesitation

I had to do the same thing but since I am not at home at the moment I cannot remember what I raised it to. I have a feeling it was more than 1200 but will check when I return home in a couple of weeks. Strangely mine only seemed to start doing this after I removed the ab14 etc. and replaced it with ...

Re: Excel rear light cover

I carefully avoided reversing into my elan and hit the corner of my house instead. :oops: I bought replacement units from PNM (not cheap though). They are listed as Esprit but are the same as ours. I think they supply front indicators as well. As they are mounted upside down compared to the Rover yo...

Re: New comer - Progress (edit)

Excellent photo Stu. As an aside did you ever sort out your problem of stalling when put in gear? If so would you share your solution for us fellow SA owners?
