    At last the Dino has arrived in Doha :)

    Customs have been cleared, temporary registration plates have been obtained and she is ready to go. Except it doesn't - the fuel pump has failed. Still not to worry, it is easily repairable. I'll strip it down tomorrow and see if I can find the fault.

    Very nice, Simon. Is that the original color? Repost in the 206/246 forum, please.

    it's lovely Simon

    btw have you done any upgrades in anticipation of sending the Dino to Qatar? I know a friend imported a UK Dino to Singapore recently and amongst the upgrades he installed a much larger radiator in order to prevent overheating in our climate, and a bigger a/c compressor for similar reasons.

    No upgrades, I just shipped it from Florida as it was, although the radiator was recently changed by the previous owner.

    The car is running with a new fuel pump now and sounds great. I still haven't driven it as it is up on axle stands. I pressure washed the engine and wheel arches and have done a few bits and pieces on it whilst waiting for the pump, which arrived yesterday. New plugs & leads, new air & fuel filters, cleaned the inside and so on.

    The reason it is still on stands is so that I can check the cooling fans both work correctly. I'll be doing this over the coming weekend:)

    Unfortunately there is no need to worry about the A/C as it doesn't have any.

    Simon
