Re: Black '68


indeed.... following yet another call, the DVLA confirmed that my V5C was in the post, and on subsequent questioning, confirmed the allocated registration number... 12 hours later, a set of plates had arrived courtesy of the internet and i was off Willy

about 3 days after that, my v5c actually turned up!! Clap

getting it moving has pro's and con's.... on the bright side... the engine (which was what originally sold the car to me) is still fantastic... but.. on the flip side, it's been standing a while and as a result, the rear suspension sounds like a beginners harmonica lesson! Banghead

I've got a full set of Bilstein B6's in the post, and i'm hopeful that with those fitted and some generous lubrication of the various rather dry looking rubber bushes, that the ride improves somewhat, or at least quiets down a bit..

pic below was the first trip out... unhealthily enough, to pick up take away after i'd spent the time i should have been cooking fitting the plates!

Ddave - nicely done on the big block. Looks fantastic!

Yours is the first C3 I've seen with standard looking wheels and all black tyres. It looks good.

What size alloys and tyres do you have on it? I'm asking because I'm still deciding on what alloy + tyre size I'm going to go for with my 1968 C3 in the future.

Initially, I thought a bigger alloy to mask the lot of black in the normal size black tyres (mine currently has standard 15 inch wheels with 225/70/15 on it, but have raised white lettering, and I was hoping to go to 16 or 17 inch alloys with all black tyres), but after seeing your picture of standard wheels + all black tyres, it actually looks quite good.
