    So my wife is in the process of digitizing some images from our archives, here is one of my first Downdraft @ 30 years ago at London's Admiralty Arch Gate that has never been posted

    Also from the same era, here is one of our Downdraft in the countryside and a crazy friend trying to cut the wing off with a hacksaw!

    Topic - Exhaust Heat Shield

    Were the heat shields, located forward of the exhaust, always unpainted or are there known cases where they were factory painted black?

    Correct.

    We had this discussion earlier in the thread whereupon I produced significant evidence to show that they were generally unpainted or silver-grey.

    That doesn't mean a few didn't escape with black paint.

    I've noticed that quite a few cars are coming out of restoration with caulking to the sides of the front boot between the bumper and the body.

    Beautiful car though, looks to be an amazing restoration.

    I’m in the hunt for an Alpine 7145L 7148L owners manual for my car. If anyone has one or can help me find one please let me know. Thanks.

    It's very noticeable on a white car that also has white caulking.

    Greg Solomon ordered his new Nero Tenebre/Champagne Downdraft via Portman Lamborghini in London, the hairstyles tell us this was the 80s

    How did the single arm wiper perform?

    During 15 years of ownership having covered 60t km we never had issues with the wiper.
    The windscreen is so flat that above 40miles you don't need them anymore since the rain flushes over.
