  1. The lolocost was also a square chassis. The chassis on this car is nothing that I recognise. The tunnel is very narrow too.

    Seats for sale

    I’ve got 2 Cobra roadster 7 seats for sale. gray with red trim, slightly worn on the lateral support and they could probably do with some new foam. They’re still very supportive and will fit the monocoque chassis and older cars. Ideal if you’re after some cheap seats to get your project rolling. Come with runners. looking for £90. collection from Carterton in Oxfordshire
  3. My brackets are just in front of the engine mounts, but as Duck said some manipulation may be required.
  4. If you have access to a sewing machine then you could probably manufacture one yourself. If you search Surrey Top in the search facility you should find plenty of info.
  5. I would think that as the Westfield is slimmer in design so the width and length dimensions would be totally different. You could contact GBS to see if they have any hoods / doors. Alternatively look at a Surrey top as it’d be cheaper.

    No lights

    I’d say that checking the fuses are the first thing to do. I don’t know if you have a dedicated kitcar loom or if you’re using the old Sierra loom but if you have a blown fuse it should be easy to identify visually. Just make sure you have the correct rating fuse if it needs replacing.
  7. It’d be a shame to end this thread, besides I’m interested to see what you’ve got planned. Anglia perhaps ?
  8. I use a Hamilton cover with a Halfords cover over that. I’ve never had a mold problem. If you use a mild detergent will it clean off ?
  9. I think between 10-12 is the norm.
  10. A systematic check of the earth cables then.
  11. I had an issue a few years ago where my starter motor was slow to turn but all my earths were fine. I replaced the starter and it fixed the problem. This was on my pinto and was an ancient starter.
  12. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F291572757928 theres always this. It’ll need an air feed like; https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F360677980092 theres always a way to “ hoodie” it
  13. I went to my local motor factors when I had a similar issue with my exmo. Just took a photo of any cast markings or numbers from the old unit and we found a suitable replacement within minutes.
  14. If you don’t expect to be driving in the rain constantly then you done need such a large washer bottle. Car builder solutions and other vendors do various style of bottles and bags that will suffice.
