Re: 216 grey bumpers

Re: 216 grey bumpers

I've always used auto glym bumper care on all external plastics and rubber on all my cars. It works a treat and lasts for some time.

Re: Assorted 200 & 400 parts

Great to see stew!
I was looking for a PAS pump, does it not come with the pulley for the belt?
Mine has a wobble, is it the pulley or is it the pump?

Might take the wing mirrors for spares..
Please PM me.

Re: RetroRacer's 1994 216 SLi 'Vincent' (pic heavy)
