  1. Had a 3 1/2 year rest now time to finish the car

      Hi Neil,

      If you need any help in your quest I live in Ashford Hill so easy to visit.

      Happy New Year



  2. Hi all, long time since I have played with the car and posted on here. Can anybody help me, I purchased the gbs loom 1.4 version and all othe sub looms from kit spared gauges, lower dash, etc. but I am having issues with getting things working. First of all with the indicator stalks connected up and screwed in place the ignition fuse kept blowing. So cheeked all earths and are no loose wire etc on fuse box all seemed well, after a few hours I realised that the screw hole on the light switch was live and taking the fuse out. So disconnected the stalks from the steering column screw and left them swinging in the wind,lights worked but only with ignition on. Do the side lights not need perm feed? Another one is the indicators don't work either without the fuse blowing. Help I am fast losing my patients with this while awaiting a phone call from gbs to try and shed light on this. There is me thinking plug and play would be simple or not in this case. Regards
  3. Thanks chaps lets see if she starts first time, fingers crossed
  4. Hi, Could somebody tell me the correct place to earth my starter motor for my new zetec engine or does it not matter as long it's a good clean earth connection. I was going to connect it to the engine mount bolt on the Chassi. It's just because I seem to remember reading somewhere on here that they connected this to the wrong place, however I could be wrong and making the whole thing up. I have the day to myself today and hopefully will give the engine it's first start with a bit off luck, so if you here a bang it's probably my engine Neil
  5. Thanks all for making me and my mate very welcome, fist time i have been to a shown since i bought my kit, it is funny that i could recognise people by there cars and user names on this forum, but didn't have a clue what they looked like. Picked up a lot of useful build tips. Just what i needed to get my motivation back and finish the kit. Neil
  6. Oops, I might need to get some need pads in that case
  7. Hi, its been a long time since i have had time to play with the kit car, 18 months to be exact. not that i am counting, anyway with all the bit in the garage to finish the car, and a empty back account its time to get busy and finally get it built before i lose interest. I have got a zero chassis loom version 1.4 from kit spares, has anybody got a diagram or pin out reference for the column switches, loom side (what connects to what) also does anybody know if the wiring on the auxiliary switches is the same as version 1.2 as shown on the kit spare down load section. i don't seem to be able to get on the down load section anymore to see if they have uploaded a new wiring diagram or schematic. with a bit of luck on my side, brighter nights coming from this weekend i hope to get the car on the road before the end of summer. Thanks for any replies Neil
  8. Hi, I have a GBS water rail kit with a housing going for grabs with a blue hose if that is any use, unfortunatley I don't want to split it and sell it seperatley Regards
  9. Hi Danny, I Think Simon B on here used to make some fiber glass ones , not sure if he still is or not. drop him a line and check. Regards
  10. I hope its not the 3 year big service, 5 spark plugs lots of oil etc. i took my to a for robbing Ba#t/rd dealer in Berkshire and was £650 lighters. to be honest could find an independent that could do it much cheaper and they will price match if you can find it cheaper anywhere else i miss my st great cars

    Sierra Front Hub

    Sorry, got home late last night and didn't make it into the garage, The good news is the good hub is the O/S side so its yours if you want it. the not so good news is i go on holiday tomorrow for a week, so wont be able to send until the following week. The hub might need a new bearing as its been sat in the garage for a while. and definitely needs a new grease cap.I will give you the other hub as well with the grease cap on and good bearing still fitted if you like and see if you can make one good from the pair Regards

    Sierra Front Hub

    Hi, I might have one, well i know i have a pair of front hubs but one is broken and not sure which side is the good one. when i get home i will have a look. Regards
  13. Hi, Probably been asked load on here but is it worth spending the extra on AT throttle bodies or jenvey etc Just wondering which would be best for generally road use with the odd track day chucked in or would i be better off spending the extra £600 on other bit for the car. somebody said the plenum gives better torque than the throttle bodies? Thanks neil
  14. Ha Ha i know all about this. i ordered over 4K worth of parts off them in january to finish off my car for this summer. finally got a phone call to say the remaining parts have arrived only took 2 330 mile round trips and 8 months to get them well thats if the ECU arrived in this week. so looks like next summer before on the road for me. but to be fair every other item i have ordered has been a quick turn around. oh well
  15. Hi Dan, Check these out, they are the same seat that GBS sell but a lot cheaper , i am not sure on space within the S7 but the are very narrow and fit in my GBS ZERO. i bought some at Christmas time at a discount price of £125 and they are even cheaper now at £99 bargain in my book. http://www.midlandwheels.com/Shop/C-998-Clearance-Offers.html
