  1. Shame I missed this, Been to the NMA several times. Been to several events there and there's a few fallen friends with names on plaques, so always emotional. Is an amazing day out, free parking and very peaceful.

  5. Hey up, If the weather's good i'll be up for that! Could I have the postcode please? I know my hood's gone, been re-built and i did have a S2000 for a few months, but i'm back in the "Seven Chassis" and driving a Westie!

  7. Hello everyone, Hope there's someone able to offer help and advice. I stopped at a red light and had a very nice guy decide to give my car a new feature, a nice imprint of the front of his car! He then decided to go crazy at me for stopping at a red light... Merc Driver "Why did you stop?!?!?!" Me "Red light" MD "But you had space, you could've gone through!!!!" Me "Umm... Insurance details please" MD "WHAT!!!! You caused the accident!!!" Me "I know what, give me your insurance details and we'll let the police decide." MD "F*@K YOU!" Then he drove off... not believing wha

    It's ok Al, I have postcode... I missed the place 3 times in a row! Now I'll be ok with it. Where would you like me to pick you up from? Everyone else, we'll see you there!
  9. I've had my hood a good 8 months now. But do to our leaders stealing from anyone that works, to give to our long term guests and lazy free loaders... I have had to make a very important choice... Sell my Hood or sell my drop top Astra... Well i chose the reliable, practical, 40mpg Astra cab, for the chop. This has made a huge difference in my life, but i have discoverd just how nad my wiring loom is... Side lights come on when i brake Indicators come on when they like and random ones click on all over the place. Starting is an issue if it's damp or cold Idle is either 800rpm and cutting
  10. I got caught doing 76 on M25 a year after i passed, points came off, less than 6 months later i got caught doing 44 in a 30, those points came off in oct. Sunday i drove through a fixed cam that i pass almost everyday, got the dreaded double flash! Take the points, first 3 don't count on insurance or anything. I know, in 11yrs driving i've had 3points for 10 of them!!!
  11. Evening Gary,

    I'm back now, just got back this weekend. Went to the Hood's little love nest and went to have a play... well clearly the 10 weeks sat in a garage have done no good! New battery, now she runs fine... except still wiring issues...

    side lights come on when i brake

    indicators come on in random combinations

    Now only have the hood as a daily drive. Sold ...

  12. I've just got back on here... First time this year. I need to catch up on gossip and find out what's up with my wiring loom...

  13. I had a light go on the way to a party a couple of years ago... Living in Dorset at the time i decided to pop straoght into halfords, rather than risking the lanes, took advantage of the fitting service (to save getting dirty on way to party) and the 12yr old didn't have a clue how to fit some H7's (I think) o the prelude i had at the time. After several minutes of faffing they said they'd have to remove headlamp and to get it off, grill and bumper would have to come off. I giggled, lifted air box lid up and popped it straight in place! Asked for refund... I was denied as their employee had t
  14. Txt the reg to 83600 Cost about £1.50, but gives you everything yoi could ever wish to know... Even milage at last MOT
  15. Hi, Just looked on mine, it's been cut off. I have throttle cable running through left hand slot. I'm assuming it would've been the choke cable at some point... Well a guess! Cheers Stephen
  16. A massive building, a massive selection of completely different kits, replica's and classics... But i have an idea i think might make the day even better... Weekend event, free camping, large BBQ set up (bring your own food) and free beer! Be a way of getting different clubs to intergrate and share stories/experiances. Stephen
  17. Not 100% sure if they are the best on paper, but the best i ever put in a zetec was Bosch Super 4's. Put the in mother-in-laws fiesta and father-in-law asked how i made it run so smooth and improved power... I said "if i told you, you'd get bored and not understand" hahaha. Hth Stephen
  18. Not quite related, What would be chances of getting all stainless panels powder coated? Has anyone heard of this or know of anyone who'd be up for the challenge? Hmm... Stephen
  19. I'm up for the jolly! Although i have an issue... I need a postcode, anybody in West Mids knows i'm from Cornwall and not used to motoways, dual carriageways or anything other than back roads! Haha
  20. I made it!!! Cheers, it was a good meet, I don't remember any names... Well Gary, Jez and about 7 Steves... Lol
  21. I made it!!! Cheers, it was a good meet, I don't remember any names... Well Gary, Jez and about 7 Steves... Lol
  22. NO FAIR!!! My t'other half's got a massive family, 8 nieces/nephews and 5 brothers/sisters and I'm bottom of the list and I get whatever she gets free when she buys 3 for 2 offers!!! I paid £360 for rolling road/tune and still Nick's car soumds sssooo much better than mine. How did you get that sound? Cheers, Stephen
  23. I've owned 2 classic mini's, one for 6yrs... MGB GT and a MG B roadster. Been fine with working out their looms, this is just totally different kettle of fish though! Had a call from Gaz, so I think I'm going to be more than sorted now. I'll post on here any issues I had. Once I find out what loom I have and what my plan of action is, that'll be up here too! Thanks for the help everyone... I hope I can help out in the future! Cheers, Stephen
  24. First one for me!!! Lol... 3rd time lucky. Just in case, have you got the postcode please? If weather's dry, i'll bring hood.
  25. Oh, Forgot to mention Christmas... My beer tokens would ease Christmas money issues too, although I am away from 06Dec-23Jan... Taking tin top. So if it's too much to sort out before then I could leave it garaged and sort it at the end of Jan.
