  1. There will be no meetings in the North East until further notice, keep safe everyone, Alan
  2. I have a pair of red ones that were on my Exmo you can have them if they are any use to you, I will have to dig them out of my shed and get some photos for you , let me know before I go into the black hole of a shed. Alan
  3. That is looking really smart, look forward to some great summer runs out
  4. I voted Snap-on as the gear I bought 40 years ago is still in daily use today, I have loads of other firms gear as well but it is mainly to supplement the main kit.
  5. I don't have expensive tastes so my choice would be a Classic Mini with a Honda V-tech motor, I ran Minis in Rallying in my youth and I would love to have a Mini in an updated form to see what it would be like being able to go quickly and be able to stop! which was always a problem.
  6. Time for the monthly meeting at the Church Mouse Waldridge, Chester le Street, DH23RJ, from 7-30. Any-one in the area from Berwick in the North to Darlington in the South are more than welcome to attend, member or non member, kit builder or driver or even just thinking about getting involved with kit cars come along. Come and quiz the experienced builders that have been there and done it and have a wealth of knowledge about all things kit car.
  7. Hi Ian, if I was building a kit now that is the route I would be tempted to take, the MX5 has been fitted to such a large variety of vehicles there will be loads of info out there if you do a bit of searching, and of coarse there is supercharging or turbo.
  8. When I had my Exmo I used parallel for tracking.but it will depend on your self centring for your IVA it may need toe in.
  9. I made a body coloured infill panel to bridge the gap with sealer from the cockpit side
  10. It will be nice to see you Paul, are you ok to find your way there or do you need directions?
  11. The first meeting of the year at the Church Mouse Waldridge, Chester le Street, DH23RJ. Waldridge, Chester le Street, DH23RJ . Once again asking if a few of the new members would like to attend, if we can get more coming I will organize more events like the one we had between Xmas and New Year. Looking forward to seeing anyone that can make it- come in your road car if your kit is off the road.
  12. I am still not getting one, last one I had was before I moved house in about March last year!!!! I did send notification of my new address and it's right on my profile but still none.
  13. Hi, sorry to say this but twin 45's a just too big for a 2ltr Pinto, if anything they will reduce power--have a search on the forums for twin 45's you will find lots of useful advice, there are not many firms in the North East I would trust to tune them for you, I would recommend Bogg Brothers at Malton always found them very good.Look forward to seeing you out and about once the weather improves. Alan
  14. Hi Allan, it doesn't look like I will be able to make it tonight, I have been hanging on to see if my other half was going to change her plans for today but it looks like I am chauffeur for tonight. All the best to you for 2020 , see you at the Church Mouse on the 29th, Alan
  15. Welcome to the North east area, I recognize the car but I can't recall where from , looks a new 3 (if its wishbones) or a 3a if it has inboard shockers Can't quite see from the angle of the photo. Nice looking car that I look forward to seeing at the monthly meetings at the Church Mouse, Chester Moor DH23RJ held on the last Wednesday of every month at 7-30 pm. Alan
