  1. Hi sorry not logged in for a while. Sadly not this ended with weeks and weeks of waiting for a replacement that I was promised would have spare material left on it and it finally arrived a couple of months later and still wasn’t anywhere near right so I just made my own from scratch

    r1 carbs

    I have r1 carbs on my pinto and run a pipercross px600 filter no problems and doesn’t hit the bonnet.
  3. A friend of mine purchased one 2 years ago as part of the caterham academy. He opted to do the build himself. I popped in just after it was delivered and the chassis came with engine and box installed all brake lines ran side panels all fitted and most of the wiring installed. It took him around 3 weeks to complete the full car. I must say it is easier when you attach part D to F using supplied fixings XYZ. there was no thinking how the hell am I going to make that fit and where and with a non existent bracket that needed fabricating.
  4. I have the smiths telemetrix gauges. They wiring diagrams are all online. The following is the tachometer. https://www.caigauge.com/documents/product-instructions/tachometers/pil055-iss2-279.pdf
  5. Matthewsons isn’t far from me. Nothing ever goes cheap there. The other year they sold an original Mini Cooper that was completely rusted and only purchased for the vin number really made silly money and headlines in quite a few motoring papers.

    Battery power

    Generally I’ve found that to be a bad cell. But yup new battery time.
  7. New electric garage door replace the old up and over which means having to move what ever vehicle is parked I front of it. Gets fitted next week, it’s the lazy things lol.
  8. I have pretty much that exact layout and can see the water, oil and fuel fine when driving. On the 2B the tubes behind the dash almost dictated where my dials would actually fit.
  9. I’d say that looks great! Don’t forget to order some arch trim similar to P trim and it nips between the rear arch and body work it just hides the little bits where it doesn’t quite sit flush and in my opinion really finishes it off! You may well of seen my orange 2B whilst at gbs as it’s getting some accident repair work carried out.
  10. I followed the tutorial on nw hoods on fitting the side panels. Took my time and all went well.
  11. I have the cad drawings of the panels so you could get a new rear panel cut drop me a message if you want a copy. If you do go the other route drop me a message on the suspension upgrade I may be interested cheers mike.
  12. I’ve always fancied giving Gtechniq G1 a go seems to have really good reviews. I too tried rain-x on the kit and made no difference unless at higher speeds.

    Brake line route

    From memory I think the max distance between fixings is 300mm so anything less is great. I ran fuel and brake lines down one side and electrics down the other side.
  14. How have you found the upgraded handling pack?
  15. Very nice work my kit was originally Oxford blue and now orange good choice
