Wheely good builder!

Wheely good builder! (4/5)



  1. We will be sending out an e-mail shot shortly. If you're already on this thread, you will probably still get an e-mail. Apologies for this but it's easier to send it to everyone rather than filter people out. Obviously only club members in the general NW area will be contacted, we have no easy way of contacting community users but they're still welcome to get involved.
  2. 2B with sliding pillar front suspension.
  3. Unbuilt kits are difficult to sell, people seem to be put off buy the work needed and the £500ish cost of the IVA test to get on the road. Realistically the kit plus the donor car is worth maybe £2k max to someone who is willing to take it on. Sadly, it's probably worth more in parts. A decent Sierra could be worth that much on its own and individual parts of the kit will have some value to them. Personally I'd rather see unbuilt kits finished and on the road so I'd always try selling as a complete package first.
  4. I believe the shock on the sliding pillar is from a classic mini. Is this the part you mean or are you on about the shaft that goes up inside the spring?
  5. Come on folks, we need your input to get these meets going again. I know Stephen Percival tried to do it a while ago and didn't get much response but that's not going to stop us trying again. If I get time later this week, I will send an email out to members in the general area just in case they're not on the forum.
  6. I used a TX4 rear compartment heater like this in a GBS Zero. The fan can be removed and mounted remote from the heater if required. The heater box itself is plastic. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/203438300392?hash=item2f5dde1ce8%3Ag%3A7~0AAOSwIz9gkDBe&LH_ItemCondition=4 Earlier TX1 and TX2 will have a metal heater box, with internal fan and they're a bit bigger overall as well. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/133901414555?hash=item1f2d25709b%3Ag%3AswUAAOSwn~9hZKwA&LH_ItemCondition=4
  7. Booked Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Pitch 4

    Clutch cable

    Yes much longer. It can be routed well forwards of the engine and then back to the pedal box / clutch arm. There's a not brilliant photo a bit down this page: https://nw.rhocar.org/parts2.htm

  10. Good to hear that people still have the appetite to get out this late in the year. Many people SORN cars at the end of September.
  11. I have been contacted regarding getting some regular meets going in the NW Area. The request has come from a member in Liverpool but the meets could be of interest to people in North Wales, Merseyside, Cheshire, South Lancs. If you're interesting in getting involved, please post on this thread and maybe subscribe to it so you can be kept up to date with what;s being planned. Once we have a few more details, I plan on doing a mail shot by e-mail to club members in the general are to make them aware. Community users are also welcome to get involved, the more the merrier.
  12. September was a steady month for new memberships so welcome aboard to the following new members: Robin H Robin Haslam Scarborough Robert A Rob Austen Ludlow Thomas L tom Consett Marc S Stricky Walsall Kevin L Kevin Longworth Sutton in Ashfield Kenny P Kenchenzo Eastbourne Jennifer L Jenny Australia The next 6 months are going to be quiet in terms of shows so keep and eye on the Events page for details of any meets in your local area over the coming months. The local meets are a good way of keeping in touch out of show season and we'd like to see more of them happening. You can get a good idea of other members in your area on the Member Map If you'd like to get a regular meet started in your area, let me know and I will try and help. We can e-mail people in the area to see if they're interested and help promote it on the forum and our Facebook page The meets don't need to be anything fancy, just meet at a pub or maybe at another existing event just to get things started.

    Price please Rob.
  14. I've got spare flasher units and probably have hazard switches if it's a Sierra one. I'm not back at home until late Sunday night but I'm around after that.
