Yes - looks great! Steel blue metallic I believe. Had a Genesis Coupe in that colour. Decent spec as standard and looks to be in good condition. Enjoy!

As I removed the rad and fan I thought it be good for a rust removal and a good coat of epoxy paint. Spent an hour cleaning the rad fins with compressed air and the amount of crap that I removed was shocking..

very nice. Did you blow from engine bay to outside to clear radiator fins? 

I've seen a comb to straighten them but thought it would just push dirt further in.

Thank you. I removed the lot from the car and left it soaking in warm water then blasted all the dirt out with compressed air form both sides.

      So hopefully in the near-ish future I want to convert my coupe 1.3 to afh 1.4 16v and i just want to fuel it with injection but I'm not sure about the wiring iv heard of a complicated way of splicing the looms with both the fuse boxs or something along those lines and iv also heard that you can make a loom using both engine looms with minimal wires just wondering if anyone can shed some light on which is the best way to do it and I really don't want to run it on bike carbs.

      Hi new to the Club , but wondering if anyone has had problems with a bread van Polo water temp gauge indications?
      Car arrived with temp gauge U/S. Bought a new temp sensor ( correct one as its a black, not blue, unit ) 
      Start engine and the gauge then runs up to almost max water temp in about 15 seconds.
       
      Any ideas please? Many thanks.
