  2. Be warned. 1. The admin fee this firm will charge you for is voluntary not compulsory. 2. Personal dealings with this firm tell me that the warranty is not all it appears to be. 3. Additional charges they tried to charge me were 1. £500 warranty 2. £200 Alloy wheel insurance. 3. £ 95 Admin charge. 4. £200 Gap insurance. 5. £700 Price hype Total cost added to original price of car £1695 Take a photograph of car with price displayed when you make deposit. (their policy is to change prices without notice) Check car for service history documents. On two occasions I was presented with documents only to find original documents in car I hope you find this of use.

    Steering Components For Super Spec.

    Alan, Many thanks for your reply. Not sure what a PM is? But I found your Tasks completed list most interesting. Much of it I have done myself. With regard to the cooling system I swapped the pressure cap on the header tank to one rated at 20lbs and it has never overheated or boiled dry since. Thanks for the info. Regards Pete.

    Thank You

    Thanks Phil for all your hard work during the last 6 yrs. Pete the Dog. So sorry I could not stop for the A.G.M. I ran out of steam at about 2.00pm. That,s the trouble with being an old fart.
  11. Dear Jtomo I struggled with overheating for years. you must ensure there is no air in the cooling system. My super spec was fine on runs until i stopped in traffic where upon it would over heat and dump water on the road causing an air lock in the system. I cured this problem by swapping the 13psi pressure cap with one rated at 20psi. Make sure all the plumbing is sound and the only other thing I did was to ensure that as much as possible of the air that came through the grill went through the radiator. No further problems. Good luck Jtomo I,m sure you will get it sorted. Pete.

    Midlands Run To Wales 12Th To 14Th August 2016

    Where were you all at 2.30pm on Saturday? I completed all my chores by mid_day so I decided to nip down to Nefyn to meet some of my old friends. I spent about half an hour visiting a couple of the post codes posted but never spotted a single Hood. I stopped at a pub about 5 miles outside Nefyn where someone had seen a Hood the previous night. I got home at 6.pm having driven about 180 miles. I was a bit disappointed about not finding any members but an enjoyable drive anyway. Must get some phone numbers.

    Radiator Fan

    Why bother? Even my Audi A6 does this, it soon turns off when it cools down. Pete.

    Robin Hood Bad Press!

    With regard to speed and performance, I guarantee my Hood will either put a smile on your face or fill your underpants. Pete.

    Weather Warning !

    I tried to do this last night, but there was no space in the Hood for me. I walked to the Pub instead.
