  4. Kept me out of trouble for a bit. I'll bring them to the next Leics meet if you're going.
  5. Not a Winter mod as such and certainly not on the same scale as my normal projects. Knowing I get bored easily, @DeanRudkin asked me to trim these front arches for him so I've spent a couple of wet weekends on them, The vents in the back of the arches are molded closed and were trimmed out with a oscillating saw and a Dremmel. The cut edge of the fibreglass was then thinned out to look a bit more even. Finally the arch was given a good flat over to remove the mold join lines and small skim of filler here and there. Here's the final job, they just need priming, a wet flat and the top coats and they're done.

    Blimey, looks like I've set myself up for making a screen frame and a top.

    The car park can be dedicated to kit cars, except for disabled visitors, is huge and can accommodate over 200 cars. GCR will be promoting this event in their calendar. • Free entry for kit cars and foot passengers • If you arrive in a Kit Car then you will be entitled to privileged rates on the trains. • The Tin Shed bar and marquee will be open during the event • The Butler Henderson Cafe will be open for food and hot drinks both days. If you would like to stay the night to enjoy both days camping for caravans and trailer tents can be accommodated on the car park, there will be a small fee for hook up. There is a possibility of using a field next to the station for tents but this is subject to confirmation at the moment. There are overnight toilet facility's at the station and one shower. More information TBC
  9. That looks very smart, some nice details there.
  10. The Harrows is closed! Change of venue to the Spread Eagle at Gailey ST19 5PN
  11. 32/36 would be a good choice and should be fine with a fast road cam. Twin 40's are overkill in my opinion, I know there are people that like them but for road use you'd be better off with bike carbs where their variable venturi makes them more driveable at part throttle. On the ignition side of things you could end up with a lot of fiddling around with the standard setup. You might want to think about replacing it with something like an Accuspark system. http://www.accuspark.co.uk/DealPage.htm#V6
  12. Just me in the kit (without roof) but about a dozen of us there in total (members and former members). It was my third area meet of the month after also doing Staffs and Leics. My challenge for next year will be to 4 in a month.
