    Thanks Julian,

    I'm going to look at the hoses to see what condition they are in.

    I was also thinking the thermostat, I believe that I have the newer type, but I'll need to check.

    Mike Satur doesn't appear to do radiators any more, looking at the website.

    My radiator is in poor condition on my 2003 TF and will need to be replaced shortly. I'm looking at replacing the cooling pipes at the same time for stainless steel ones.

    What other jobs would you recommend that I look at while the cooling system is drained and in bits? The water pump was replaced not long before I bought the car along with the cam belt.

    Also, are there any recommendations as to the best place to buy a radiator from?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello,

    We've had our late 2003 TF for just over 2 weeks now - it's a smile generator!

    The car has only done 45k miles and is solid underneath. It had a few cosmetic issues that I have been dealing with. In the two weeks, I've changed the bonnet, boot lid, front bumper- these were not in the best state, door handles had been brush painted with black paint - they've been replaced with colour coded ones, , rear tyres were cracked and splitting from lack of use so have been replaced. The manual mirrors have been replaced with colour coded electric ones. The windows have been adjusted so that they don't leak any more. There's a few more cosmetic things to sort. There's a few oil leaks - dipstick tube, which has been fixed now, the camshaft cover gasket needs replaced and a driveshaft oil seal requires replacing - all relatively easy jobs to resolve. The back box has been replaced - this came with the car as the existing one was in a poor state - took a while to get it to align properly.

    Trying to get as much done at the moment so that we can get out and enjoy it - makes us smile every time we're out in it.

    Thanks, Mark
