  1. I think Ebay is great I was going to order some odds and sods for the car through CBS (good company) but then had a quick search on Ebay found a lot of bits and saved £58. Always worth looking.

  4. Same here good day out. Finally oredered the Zero kit car Richard was very helpful and swapped some items around that I did not need, fingers crossed should be ready for collection mid-June. The RHOCAR stand was friendly as ever great brew! - thanks Ian. Hopefully next year I'll be there in the car (time permitting). Be prepared for the newbie build questions.

    Cv Joints

    Not much help but they are the same as my drive shafts I took off a sierra a few weeks ago. As I owned the car for a 3 months and decided not to strip the CV joint just clean old greae out and replace the boot/gaiters from ebay (Stretch cv boot kit) comes with a grease pack. I did replace the wheel bearings.
  6. Hi All, Has anybody used these stretch CV boot on ebay? Are they any good? Do they last? http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/UNIVERSAL-STRETCH-CV...=item27afd13734 Regards Mark
  7. Looks good. I was designing a blog space for my build but IT security in work has just blocked all blogs and social networking sites. This might allow people in work to see my progress (or lack of progress). Regards Mark
  8. Dan - thank you. Excellent tip on slide a boot medium gaiter on ebay - Ordered. Regards Mark
  9. A few years ago the kids had a coin maker from argos for Christmas you can make plain coins if you don't use the stamp/press, silver or gold. You have to melt the chocolate, then use the template, keep cold in fridge for about an hour and finally wrap them. Lots of sticky fun , about £15.00 Pink Golden Coin Maker. 383/8190. Regards Mark
  10. Iggy, Nice dash I am thinking of using carbon how easy was it to cut accurately? Regards Mark
  11. Great news you always gave me confidence during the kit car shows. Best of luck. Going to order the Zero very soon thanks for emails. Regards Mark
  12. Jess, Made a mistake on the engine chioce - ebay sierra good runner advertised as 1.6 pinto won the bidding war (sierra's are getting thin on the ground) the seller drove it to my brother-in-laws house. He's 150 miles away and siad it sounded OK, no smoke a bit of documented history so I was happy. Got the car transported to Telford drove it off the transporter and around the estate agian I was happy. Pulled into the driveway to have a good look under the bonnet C**P it had a 1.6 crossflow fitted I checked the history its a 1984/5 Ford sierra import from South Africa. Ford South Africa fitted xflow until the end of 1985. Don't get me wrong I like xflow and they have a lot of potential. Therefore I am going to stick with it and plan for a winter upgrade in a few years. Bottom line don't buy a car of ebay without seeing it yourself! Mark
  13. Hi, I have finished stripping the sierra and started to clean, service and paint everything. Before I actually order the RH Zero what else should I be thinking of buying in advance (i.e. nuts, bolts, tools etc). Misses doesn't know about the kit car fund but I want to be as ready as possible and spend a little per month until the kit arrives. Thank you Mark
  14. Nick, Looking really good I am still stripping the donor vehicle. Did GBS powdercoat the chasis if yes is the finish good? Not going to order the kit untill the parts are ready due to limited space. Regards Mark

  16. Daz, Looks really good, its surprising how difficult it is to decide the final layout. I'm still stripping the donor and I have shed loads of photos from the shows and various build sites...... but still can not decide. Well plenty of time yet - ETB dials on wish list. Regards Mark
  17. Grizzly, I found your site very interesting and useful. I intend to use this for my Zero can you post a picture of the hinge area please? Regards Mark

    My donor has been using the additive with no problems for years. Although I might change the engine after IVA but for now I'm going to keep using the additive. Stick with it unless you have problems with your valves and seats. Regards Mark
  19. Graham, When did you order your Zero, I am still stripping my donor vehicle and looking for the current lead time? Regards Mark
  20. Hi Jon, I hope mine looks as good as this and I am so envious of the garage space. Well done. Mark

    What Engine To Use

    I agree with the age related plate idea, but when I found my donor vehicle it was advertised as a pinto sierra on ebay. The old owner drove it to my brother in laws 150 miles away from me. He said it was running ok so I got transported to my house. Would you beleive it was fitted with the old crossflow engine the sierra was imported from South africa. However I like the engine and it is simple to repair and maintain. No problem with spare parts yet! So I have decide to keep it, maybe I'll change my mind after the IVA. Regards Mark
