  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
  16. As above that’s a shortened sump so fill to max level. I think from memory mine is about 2.5 litres.
  17. I just ordered the front flexis for the 2b on kitspares which fit fine length wise. I then mounted through the side panel in a place giving me the correct amount of hose required for full lock but not too much to fowl anything.
  18. I went along the lines of the metal plaster corner trim riveted to the wing stay and a generous amount of tiger seal to bond it down and that’s it. Has held perfectly including when someone drove into the side of my kit in July and smashed the arch bent the wing bracket and knocked the steering out but the arch is still stuck on well lol.

    2.0L Pinto Timing

    No 1 on the dizzy of looking over it from the passenger side points backwards towards the passenger footwell.
  20. If you are unsure just simply ring the test station where you are going for the Iva and ask to speak to one of the inspectors. They will happy give you the answer with the added bonus of knowing it’s from them who are actually the people that make the decision.
  21. I had a plate stamped by a friend and work and welded it myself. Never had it inspected by a garage or anything signed off. The Iva tester looked at it check the digits were correct and it was welded all the war around not just spot welded and was happy. That was on 2018.

    Geometry stuff

    Not that I have a zero but was reading about suspension the other day and I’m sure I recall factory height was 130mm front 140mm rear. I’m sure others will know for sure tho.
  23. There is no such thing, it’s a 2b and the age it’s purely from when the build was completed for example my 2b is 2018.
  24. Not sure on the tie rod but the track rod end is Sierra
  25. Post up a picture of it and someone will be able to identify it as you can imagine all sorts have been used/supplied with these kits.
