  1. Good morning Northwest kit car owners. Just to confirm I can’t change what has happened in the past but we can change the fortunes of the Northwest group in the future. As the Area Secretary, I am more than happy to put our cars in a position to attend local shows, I am more than happy to organise monthly meetings and run out, over the region but I also need your support to come together. The first test of our intent is to resolve to restart our group as from January 1st 2022 with this in mind I would like to propose due to cost of the bridge and travelling, that we set up 2 location 1 in Liverpool and 1 on the Wirral and each month alternate them with that proposition in mind I will await your feedback. Now is the time to act. Steve P

  6. Hi Steve I’m based in Manchester City center, currently under going a rebuild of the engine hoping to get it back up and running in Feb time due to work commitments. I can’t say I will be able to attend everyone but i will do my best to go to as many as possible. I intended to get it in shape for the car show in tatton park next year if it’s on. I took it out for its last spin the other week, when we had the last bit of sunshine,around Manchester City center. The comments and people asking can they sit in and take a picture was ridiculous, anyways keep me in mind when you have meets would love to come meet up with you all have a cuppa

  7. Hi Darrell. It is my suggestion and intention that each month we will have our meetings in one of 3 locations to make it fair. My thinking is one on the Wirral, then 1 in the Liverpool area and finally one around Chorley or Preston. The away day ride out can then be set up. I am also sorting out some car show/ charity events. I hope that this will sit well with the group. We will be as active as the effort we put into it.

  9. Hi all, thank you for the recognition of my attempts to organise meetings in the past. I can't change the past but can look to the future for a better new period. As mentioned please do not hesitate to contact me; for my part if I can establish some sort of appetite to grow our Northwest group and strengthening it by monthly meetings I would be more than delighted to do so.

  10. I beg to differ. I use the shock bracket with lower rare springs, I do not remember the rate. Adjustable dampers can be set to what you like. But the hole needs drilling out to 0.5inch if i recall correctly. It has worked fine for me for over 20 years.

  15. Don't hold back!! My view is they made a kit car that was even less desirable than the donor vehicle.

  26. This week’s focus has been on starting to investigate the rear end - having never even removed the rear wheels until now. After removing the fuel tank (and 20 years of attached grime) I started my investigation. I was aware of a diff leak, but also found the need for a pair of new wheel cylinders, new CV boots, new brake hoses and a rear wheel bearing. Nothing major, but more money and time The parts have been ordered, just need the time over the next few weeks to get it all done.

  29. Good morning all, Here is a consideration which can happen now. If anyone would like to start a zoom meeting in the first instant so we can put a face to a name and grow the group. I have a zoom account and if this sits with the group I will make it happen. If you are not up for it and want a face to face meeting then we will start that up in January. Your Club, Your Region. Your say. Regards Steve

  35. When I fitted the Lucas Mini wiper motor to my Superspec (similar to 2B) I mounted it on the inside of the firewall in the passenger footwell. Used 2 short bolts to hold the U bracket securely to the firewall. It’s at 45degrees so the drive tube curves smoothly up to the spindle gearbox on the scuttle. Has been secure and worked fine for the last 4 years.
