  1. Really? I can't recall anyone getting understeer or points on their license for bad crimping.
  2. Works well when the part isn't powder coated.
  3. Bit too far for me so I'll miss this one.
  4. If you start now Jez, you can tell Steve how to finish his.
  5. Good result, a nice simple fix and all ready for Wales.
  6. The outside diameter of the cv joint catches on surface of the arm. Tripod joints should fit all arms then the lobro joints come in 100 and 108mm diameters. I thought that 100mm joints fit all arms but obviously not.

    Hoodstock Run Out

    Hi Derek, Chilli for me please. Jackie reckons she'll struggle having a meal before the bbq and she might chill out instead of coming on the run so she'll pass on the food. Thanks

    Exmo Vs SS 2B

    2B boot interior is pretty much build it yourself. If you can get the rear panel off it's much easier to do.

    Exmo Vs SS 2B

    No, the sliding pillar is normally swapped to wishbone not the other way around. This one https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Robin-Hood-2b-unfinished-kit-car-project/273923566199?hash=item3fc71dea77:g:uFoAAOSwFW9c~kVb is already wishbone which is better. However the wishbone can still suffer with bump steer which can be removed by fitting the GBS handling pack. I have the handling pack on mine and it really is a big improvement.
  10. Flat spots on tyres from being left standing?
  11. Top ball joint might be Ford Transit, check if the thread is M18 http://nw.rhocar.org/parts.htm
  12. Blimey you don't do things by halves do you! Most people your ages are winding down but you're revving up for some new adventures. Have a great time and thanks for all you've done for the club over the years.

    Brake hoses

    Braided hoses wouldn't last on a production car doing normal mileage over maybe 10 years because they wouldn't last the movement cycles required. I know one oem tested braided hoses on high mileage durability cars and they had problems with hoses failing. I can't remember the exact details but I think it may actually have been the braiding breaking and then cutting in to the liner. On a car that does lower mileage and is regularly checked, it isn't going to be an issue so I don't have a problem with using them on the kit, but I wouldn't be comfortable with having them on a five year old daily driver where they've only had a cursory check at mot time.

    Moog6 Update

    Looks good. Nice Standard Vanguard phase 1 there, don't see many of them.
  15. As the others have said, we also had a great time. Unfortunately we had to leave late Saturday to get home but it was well worth the drive over. Many thanks for the hospitality.
