  1. 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.
  2. As above. Right hand side. Colour not important.
  3. Is this the bush for the triangular shaft at the bottom of the column? I see Kitspares sell the parts for this but a lot of people upgrade the bottom bush with a spherical bearing like this which is a huge improvement https://nw.rhocar.org/supporting_the_steering_shaft.htm
  4. now SOLD. Hoping to see it on the road next year.
  5. A week tomorrow (29th) , 7PM onwards, Malt Shovel Pub, Coventry Road, Nr Stonebridge, Coventry, CV7 7HL Entrance to the pub car park is off the A452 Chester Road heading North 50 yards from the island. See you there.
  6. I've been contacted regarding what looks to be a Triumph Herald based kit car chassis. The owner has passed away and now his brother is looking to sell it. It looks to be purpose made, 9'3" (282cm) long from the front anti-roll, bar to the back, 50" (127cm) wide and 19" (48cm) at the narrowest. There's a 3" x 65" (7.6cm x 165cm) propshaft, together with 4 wheels, engine, gearbox. His brother told him the chassis was worth £700 or perhaps that is what he paid. Let’s say £500 The engine and gearbox is on the Triumph website at £350 with no response so far so let’s offer that at £250 Whilst it's not a project for the feint hearted, it might be useful to someone and I think there's scope for negotiation on the prices. It's located near Harlington north of Heathrow. Interested parties can contact Patrick O'Brien on 020 8780 0690 or patob11@gmail.com
  7. I'll try and get a picture later.
  8. A good start would be to speak to Dave at Dampertech. He has plenty of experience supplying Robin Hood dampers. 01709 703992
  9. There's a copy of the 2B panel identification sheet in this thread: It's not drawn to scale but it should give you a good idea. Carbon panels weren't supplied as standard so you'll need to look around for them. Kitspares don't list full carbon arches but they may be available from elsewhere. https://kitspares.co.uk/collections/bodywork/carbon-fibre+
  10. I have Gaz dampers fitted before the handling pack and I didn't need to move the lower fixing on the wishbone.
  11. Halex Finishing 4 Kelsey Cl, Attleborough Fields Industrial Estate, Attleborough Fields Ind Estate, Nuneaton CV11 6RS
  12. If it's this on then I've fitted it: https://kitspares.co.uk/products/2b-et15-double-wishbone-handling-pack You need to have wishbone suspension to start with and this kit eliminates the bump steer in the original design. What exactly do you need to know?
  13. I'm a bit late spotting this but I'm moving the thread to Events just in case any non-members want to go.
  14. Almost worth keeping one of those in the boot. Takes up hardly any space.
  15. A couple of people have asked for the address, it's: Market Harborough Showground. Gallow Field Road. Market Harborough. LE16 7QB
  16. I think this car is very good value even though it needs an IVA. https://www.rhocar.org/index.php?/forums/topic/49713-robin-hood-2b-for-sale-requires-finishing/
  17. PRICE DROPPED TO £1500. Even with the cost of the IVA, this car could be on the road for a very good price.
  18. A day late with this, probably due to the excitement of having the first major event of the year, Stoneleigh kit Car Show last weekend and probably the last , End of Season Bash, this weekend. Not sure how I'm going to cope with so much in less than a week. Welcome to the following new members that joined in August: Chris C Dangermoose1 Lincoln Matt B Matt Bibb Maldon Jason C Jason Crisp Loughborough Roger C roger cook Sutton in Ashfield Scott P Scott Povey Jedburgh Hopefully there will be some newer members coming to EOSB at market Harborough this weekend and we'll get to meet them there.
  19. Zetec on bike carbs would save you a world of pain and probably cheaper. There's no best ECU, you basically get what you pay for. Microsquirt is cheaper but problematic from my experience, Emerald or Omex more expensive but in my opinion better overall.
  20. Most likely to be the hazard switch, there's 2 switches in it that supply a feed to the LH and RH indicators when the hazards are switched on. You might be able to flush out the switch with some electrical cleaner.
  21. Can't believe it's only got one screw holding it on. Have you given it a few taps with a small hammer in case it's just stuck on? No much you can do even if it is apart other than a clean with brake cleaner of the moving bits and a buff up with emery of the main contacts. Did you fit thicker wire for the pulling wire on the solenoid? The wire gauge looked ok at the solenoid end but weedy at the connector under the dash.
  22. I expect there to be a second screw holding the solenoid like the red line. You will probably need to remove the green screws to get to it. Three or maybe four of them
  23. I've still got a few club mugs left. If anyone wants one for a fiver, come and find me on Saturday or Sunday.
