  1. Thiss is a great site with plenty of useful information. Check some of the guys build sites and photo's they will provide a lot of insight. Best of luck. Regards Mark
  2. Josh, A bit of elbow grease and you have the makings of a good car. All the best. Regards Mark
  3. I have a 4 speed box same price if still interested with gear stick and fitted new output, input and speedo seals. Then found out it does not fit the zero so had to change to 5 speed. pm me if required.

    Looking smart I like the way you have cut the dash down to only have fixing tabs, good idea why didn't i think of that.

    Concept 7

    Has potential but not for me.
  6. Great idea why didn't become a success. I wonder if there are many left out there.
  7. Looks good with mesh I like the idea of painting it to individual styles. I have been playing around with mine no mesh yet just the 'zero' name added, what do you think?
  8. Duncan, Dpends how you are going to fit them if mounted from under the bonnet I would suggest countersunk stainless rivets that can be filled and repainted to match the bonnet. If fitted externally I would go for normal staianless steel rivets to match the louvers, again personal choice. Regards Mark
  9. Gravity normally gets me in the fun starts when I try to get out.....
  10. Like some of the other guys I am working to a budget and don't care if it takes 2-3 years to complete with workload and family commitments. Time consuming part so far fitting the old sierra loom, had to cut a lot out and extend some wires not difficult but takes alot of time. But its all worth it as you see the car coming together.
  11. Dan, You will have a distinct advantage of knowing the history of the parts and I imagine most will be a simple transplant. Also if you are happy with your lights I'm sure GBS will deduct them from the package (they did this for me). Sounds like a good plan and consideration for the next project. Mark
  12. Jez, I have finished with mine you are welcome to borrow it I will not need it for a while. Regards Mark
  13. Really good worth a few quid just for the story, nice car as well. Mark

    I can't deny it black and white does look very smart, but you nearly had black, white and lemonade. My son was very close when his bottle exploded on the floor very near the carpet. But then he's either hoodie in the making or needs an asbo!
  18. Any chance we can have a close up photo of mounting points, a picture speaks a thousand words please. No rush I am going to fit the rear arches next weekend. Mark

    Looks good, although the whole Rhocar area was good compared to others and generally you let people get up close to the cars. I wonder what colour is the most popular, I'll have to ask GBS next time I visit? Mark
  20. Good progress can't wait to see it in the flesh. Mark
  21. Welcome minibigfinch (what's the story behind that name?) I agree with Kev keep it simple get the car built then consider the many enhancements to improve performance. Any questions just ask someone will answer or pop around to help, once you become a full member you can loan specialist tools/equipment. Best of luck. Regards Mark
  22. Stuart, I was going for twin webers but most people generaly agreed with you so suggested that dellortos DHLA were better and more reliable. Trying to keep cost down and the donor car had a xflow fitted (south Afirican Import) the exisiting manifold and carb will not fit without moving a chassis rail and cutting a hole in the bonnet. This enginge/donor choice is causing more then one problem whilst building the zero but hey that's half the fun. Not looking for a speed demon just an enjoyable build the new xflow manifold has a slight upward angle which clears the chassis. Regards Mark
  23. Hi All, I am going to fit twin Dellortos DHLA 40's I have got a set from ebay but needs a few spares. What I am after is any information about choke size, main jets, idle jets etc when fitted to a xflow, any further advice and a picture of setup (either xflow or pinto) showing throttle linkage and fuel runs would be appreciated. I know it will have to go on a rolling road eventually but is there a basic set up process to get the engine running? Rgards Mark
  24. Dan, Looks good very similar to the lights I'm fitting, but I decided to go for a reverse light and fog. Mark
  25. Definately the way ahead to keep her indoors happy.
