  1. I think you need it, no matter what. Its not much of a certificate - a letter with the GBS logo and 3 lines of text saying you bought the chassis and bits from them.

    Definitely - it's not just the E mark, it's the sharp edges on the supoorts and you'll need demisting vents, I believe, if you have a screen fitted?

    I suppose you may have already checked the DVLA website but it's last MOT was in 2007, so it's not on the road, I'm afraid. It's either hidden in someone's garage, gone abroad or maybe gone to that great scrapyard in the sky
  4. I'm hoping to do this but it will be a last minute decision (depending on closing date?).
  5. Yeah, makes me wish I could just jack it all in and sod off...
  6. Recently discovered the blog and YT channel of Noraly - to say she's seen the world is an understatement and she's still in her 30s! https://www.itchyboots.com/about https://youtube.com/c/ItchyBoots
  7. My latest upgrade (full details here: https://zerolifebuild.blogspot.com/2021/12/gates-of-heaven.html) :
  8. Does the tub not come ready painted? Or at least with primer on? Sorry, got a metal kit - GRP is a black art to me...
  9. You're right, they did - I wonder what happened to that money? I note that GBS are following in Caterham's footsteps - lot of their cars seem to be factory builds now. The FB page is full of carbon fibre this and that with money being thrown at builds (yes, I'm jealous)...
  10. Got to agree - I'm scared of the 12v car battery My standard 2L engine is, sadly, not that loud - most of the noise is wind and tyre, which you'll still get with an electric 7. If you want quiet, no kit is going to work, irrespective of the power plant.
  11. Do trackers work, in terms of getting cars back? I'd imagine any pro worth his salt would know how to get round/disable it? Any non-pro is just going to be a joyrider who's going to trash it anyway and leave it somewhere. Personally, I'd rather stop them taking it in the first place, so physical barriers which sounds like you have covered and then either wire in some hidden switch to the starter motor (that's what I have) and/or, if you're away for some time, disconnect some important bit of wiring under the bonnet. Even if they trailer it away, at least they may never find that

    MT75 quickshift

    Where is the pin? I have a lever through a rose joint with a nut and bolt, I think, at the bottom of the lever. Can't remember how it works at the gearbox end...
  13. Yup, definitely mad The biggest worry is probably how straight the chassis is? Looks to have had a decent whack...

    MT75 quickshift

    Thanks - I don't think it's wear, it's always been like this and I think it is the long lever that is the real problem. It's supported at the rose joint but then goes up 7 or 8 inches unsupported, hence the wobble. I was also thinking of trying to make a Ferrari-style gate which would look awesome and support the lever, preventing the wobble. But I was hoping someone else had tried something like that... I guess not.
