  1. Past hour
  2. Another event cancelled which is a real shame. Hopefully it'll be on next year because it's a great venue and has the potential to be a must attend event.
  3. Today
  4. I'm afraid this event will not be going ahead because of the Covid19 restrictions. The railway is opening at the end of July with a very restricted timetable and restricted movements around the stations. I have spoken to the Events team and they are hoping to have some form of events later in the year. I hope we can put this on next year I will keep you informed.
  5. The RH back-tube-part I had failed the IVA. When the cap was closed it didn't make a seal between cap rubber and RH tube. Binned and went with something else. -steve

    Vin stamp

    I bought a steel strip, took it to a high street key shop and had the VIN number engraved on it. I tried to do it myself with a Dremel and stencil but it didn't work - maybe I had the wrong bits but they were too big for a stencil and my attempts at freehand were un-readable Got a local member from here to weld it on for me. I'd also tried to stamp it on the chassis directly but I literally made no impression and I felt if I hit it any harder, I would have damaged the chassis rail.
  8. Yesterday
  9. Thanks Gentlemen for your quick replies. I hope that I can be with you some time Saturday morning. Regards maca Martin
  10. @macaI revised my post after you saw it. Chris has clarified the location so we should be all clear now.
  11. there is no barrier or gate i have been there today the road opposite the malt house pub cliff hall lane go all the way to the end and there is a sing that that says tameside caravan and camping site it is nothing to do with cliffs lake or kingsbury water park
  12. So I take it is the road with the barriers sign posted (CLIFF LAKES) North of Cliff Hall Lane, Many thanks for your quick reply Martin
  13. Well I was pretty sure it's on the same site as the water park but only got as far as the entry barrier yesterday. @tractor @Andihave both been to meet the owner so please can one of you clarify, ideally with a screen shot from Google Maps
  14. Hi Gentlemen, May I ask which one is going to give me the correct location as I am confused as to the correct answer? I have a choice of the 2-Roads, From richyb66 at the bottom of the W shaped lake (North of Cliff Hall Lane) From Andi on Cliff Hall Lane opposite (The Malt House Pub) tractor say's (next to cliffs lake site its the turning opposite the Malt house pub cliff hall lane) Do we have any other options as to where everyone is going to meet up? Kind Regards (maca) Martin

    Vin stamp

    Hi Nick and Neil, I have an Exmo with similar pre-IVA status. I prefer not to spend £50 (quoted) to get my local garage to weld the new VIN characters onto my chassis member so I am down the path of buying steel strip from B&Q for about £5, then using my existing hand engraving tool with new diamond cutters and will do the engraving myself using a plastic stencil panel to raise the quality of my work. Then I have two welders - MIG and electric and will use one to weld the engraved strip along the Exmo chassis top rail. Then if the IVA test fails it, I will hope to argue my case. Fingers crossed for us both. Geoff.

    Vin stamp

    That’s what I did and had no problems with my Iva in 2018.
  19. look at Coolexperts, thats where mine came from, I think they may do custom sizes. http://www.coolexperts.co.uk/shop-front/
  20. I have same adjustable fan switch Ian has mentioned and i think mine is also set at 90C, seems to cope well as along with the aluminium rad and new fan fitted last year, only once did temp get a little scary but that was after a long run then sat in a queue waiting to get into a show (temp was in 30's outside anyway) when car got moving temp came down quickly (as did mine )

    Vin stamp

    Stamp it into a piece of steel then fully weld that onto the chassis somewhere, as per the regs above. This way you're also derisking the stamping process a little as they can stamp it up off the car, no risk to the chassis if someone gets the number wrong or a stamp doesn't impact good enough to make a solid impression. When you're happy with the stamped tab of steel, you can weld it onto the car. Job done.

    Vin stamp

    The Stamped in VIN must be marked on the chassis, frame or other similar structure which is not easily removable, on the right hand side of the vehicle when viewed from the rear. (see Notes 6, 8, 9 and 12) Note 12: Where the ‘stamped in VIN’ is stamped on to a separate metal plate it must be secured to the frame by a continuous seam weld around the entire length of the plate; tack or spot welding should not be considered an appropriate method of attachment for such a plate. To stamp the number into a tubular chassis member is not always practical but there may be instances where it could be stamped in another similar part of the vehicle structure which is not easily removable. You will also need the manufactures plate fitted with the details required as in Statutory Plates 18
  23. Ni Nick, I am pretty sure I have a complete cowling as I put all my switch gear on the dash. I'll have a look later on and will email results and images to you. Not sure on value yet, but will give this some thought. Cheers Craig
  24. Does anyone have an old upper plasic steering colum cowl for the Ford Sierra. The one i want has the square hazzard flasher as opposed to the round one.

    Vin stamp

    I have obtained my Vin Number from the DVLA. I asked my local garage to stamp it on my Exmo chassis, they said they would have to hammer the stainless steel so hard it would dent the chassis. How else would you write it on the chassis? Etching? Lazer? What is aceptable? And where on the chassis?.
  26. Last week
  27. Many thanks Richyb66, Weather permitting should be there, will be leaving home about 10.00
  28. It's on the west side of the Tamworth Road and North of Cliff Hall Lane at the bottom of the W shaped lake. It's well signposted off the main road.
