Hi, I bought an old 2b with sliding pillar partially built - 2 years ago. Lots and lots done, basically rebuilding the entire car, bit of an engineering project!! and we have just completed a GBS wishbone suspension rebuild on the front and replaced the damn awful pillar suspension! The car currently has a mg metro steering rack on that we have removed. I want to go to a ford rack to match the sierra track rod ends and extenders we now have. Would a mk2 escort match or what have other members fitted? Any help would be appreciated
Uncertain and inexperienced new member asking for a quick bit of advice please!
I have agreed to purchase this secondhand GBS Zero - please see expired eBay listing:
I've just checked on the DVLA website, however, as its registered as a Robin Hood. Questions:
- Is this is genuine GBS Zero? Is there a way of checking or can you tell from the photos?
- Assuming it is, does the slightly incorrect registration cause any issue/ concern?
- Any other thoughts welcome!
Due to exchange on Saturday so apologies to ask for a quick response...
Many thanks all.
I'm in a position where I would like to get offical proof of the year of manufacture of my mazda engine. I understand that for emissions test during IVA if you can demonstrate the true age of the engine the test parameters can be adjusted accordingly. Please correct me if this is not true.
Unfortunately I naively bought my engine a few years ago without any documents from the original vehicle just assuming I would be issued Q plates and I didn't even consider the different test parameters. I recently contacted the homologations department at mazda to see if they were able to provide a formal confirmation from the engine number, but I was told that they can only do this using the VIN number. So now I'm at a deadend.
Has anyone been able to overcome a similar issue? If so how.
Or, does anyone know how I go about finding the original VIN from the engine number so I can then go back to mazda?
Hi guys I'm on the rolling road tomorrow and can't wait...
I was always going to make the car track only but I'm wondering now if it's worth putting on the road for a better re-sale in the future or would I not be worth the potential gain in the future ? I already have a Sunday car so I'm not to bothered about driving it on the road.
