    Ladydauphine's FIRST 1961 Renault Dauphine

    John,

    I'll ask Renojet, but I've actually got 2 gaskets here already. I was given a gasket set when I bought the car, which was for the later R4 motor, meaning not all the gaskets were correct. I...

    I second that.

    Plus, they're Americans. Never trust an American's opinion on European cars.

    Ladydauphine's FIRST 1961 Renault Dauphine

    Thanks John!

    I find it very rewarding working on the Dauphine, and a worthwhile challenge to restore everything as sympathetically and as close as possible to original.

    Hi John,

    A saga it certainly was!
