    Thanks for the advice on the shocks. We have listened and decieded to keep the sierra main springs and fit a pair of capri shock's. The advantage is that the shock's are now upright so should work better. We had new upper brackets made for the upper mounts that could be bolted to the strong side bar. (see Attached photo.) This also gives us the option for coil overs in the future. Thanks for the advice on the steering wheel. Does anyone have an old rev counter? The speedometer is 4" and come off a cortina (smiths) I think with a chrome bezel and a blck face, It needs to be negative earth.

    Brake hoses

    Should you ever use rubber for brake lines? Won't they swell with the hydraulic force, losing your braking force? If that's not a problem and you mean the exposed brake hose to the caliper, it's probably recommended to have it braided. Exposed to the elements, you don't want a stone cutting the pipe and losing all your brakes

    Brake hoses

    It shouldn't be an issue. Just check there's no fouls or strain on the hose on full lock and allow for suspension travel.

    Brake hoses

    Thanks Richy, will there be an issue if I connect the rubber hose directly to the callipers (heat?) as im trying to do away with the short copper pipe on type 16 callipers. Thanks

    Oh blimey yeah, that's daft. I think I paid a tenner at Stoneleigh for it, it was on their stand they were just shifting excess stock I think.

    Cheers brumster, after looking into it they are asking more than £30 for just the cover! So we are gonna get the new wheel from Mr toad instead, we wanted a slightly bigger wheel anyway.

    Depends what you call cheap, everybody's view is different, I have a Formula 27 with an Alpha Romeo 2L engine, 12 months MOT needs a little tidying looking for around £3500

    See this link : https://parts.westfield-sportscars.co.uk/steering?product_id=538 Obviously you don't want the whole thing, you just want the rubber cover. Maybe if you ring them they can sell you one. It fits over Mountney steering wheel bosses.

    MOT time again

    I had one MOT at Kwik Fit and they passed it with the faulty pump and just told me to fix it, which I did and the new pump didn't work either 12 months later.

    MOT time again

    Ah, that's interesting because mine has never worked and I was wondering how strict they would be about it - guess it depends on the garage?

    We can't stay over so will leave late Saturday evening. I can ask at our meet tomorrow night if anyone else is interested but it might be a bit later for you?

    MOT time again

    Mines Monday, fingers crossed, only thing I can find is a little play in a rear wheel bearing (been an advisory on last 2 MOT's). Will try and get round to it this weekend but if not then just chance it for another year
