    Thanks Jim, I had realised that. I am still searching for details of the seal that runs parallel to the furflex. I have never experienced draft in coupes (even though they did not have the additional seal) so I expect it is more to do with water ingress around the base of the windscreen. Another coupe owner in Australia has also suggested prevention of water leakage is a more likely since his coup...

    JP,
    Can you post an image of the master cylinder?

    LaVerne if the "Big Supplier" is a euphemism for Moss I'll also add these parts to the list. FTFU does supply quality parts for TC's. I've yet to hear any of Doug's parts attract criticism. Cheers

    I also reccomend a small diameter compressible rubber seal such as that used for sealing around windows. I used that on my hardtop and it seals perfectly along the top of the screen.

    Looking forward to meeting you all in Schaffhausen.

    I have a fellow club member who has these mirrors on his roadster. They look really good and he says they are much more functional than wing mirrors.

    When I get to that point in my coupe restoration, I would like to add a similar type of mirror but am not sure how or where to attach them on a coupe. Has anyone ever used this type of mirror on a coupe?

    Jim

    Mark,
    You may have realized this since your Dec 10th post but the top right picture on page 111 of Clausager 's book does not show a seal but the piece of piping that is attached to the door cap and runs down the front edge of the door panel. See the picture of mine below and here

    As to why coupes had the extra seals and the roadster...

    Hi Bob - sorry, it's the non-original m/cyl that appears to be 1" bore; I'll probably stick with 1", because the brake booster (also pre-1967!) seems to give good firm brake pedal feel, which I like. The car stops on a sixpence (showing my age/ethnicity), it's just that the existing m/cyl is damaged, borderline irreparably. I'm hoping a reader might be able to point me towards a particular brand/m...
