Wheely good builder!

Wheely good builder! (4/6)



  1. No one ? Great accessory for S7 owners.
  2. I bought this many years ago from a chap who had it laser cut. It is very substantial. It has brackets that fit on the back of an S7 monocoque and allow the rack to hang off the back. It has 2 x support rods that are attached to the rack and should slot into 2 x brackets that were made to fit at the bottom of the tub. Unfortunately I do NOT have the 2 x brackets that fit at the bottom of the tub as they were still attached to my car when I sold it. They were just 2 x T shaped brackets with a hole so would be easy to fabricate. Once fitted it is strong enough to sit on and bounce up and down ). I hung 4 x lengths of allthread from the rack and a couple of aluminium bars and it becomes a 2 tier rack that will take 2 x large plastic containers. It served me well travelling to Le Mans for a week with cooking equipment, clothing and "stuff". It will be too heavy to organise reasonable postage and I am not messing about. It has hung on the wall of my garage for the last 8 years or so, but i need it gone. . Pictures of the rack and when it was fitted to my car. Collection from Bingley - West Yorkshire - BD16. I am not using the forum much. PM me or try my email leeATsandground.com replace the AT with @. or comment hear as I will follow this post. Cheers Lee

    Sad Day

    Many of you wont know him, but a member of the RHOCaR West Yorkshire contingent, Barrie Jackson, lost his battle with cancer last week. A lovely chap who looked after my engine crane for about 3 years and still never fitted his replacement engine. My condolences are with the family and the monthly meetings will be a little quieter.

    Enjoy Steve.....

    Should I Buy?

    At 2k what have you got to lose. Buy it drive for this summer if you don't like it move it on. It has bottomed out price wise. I miss mine and have a 5 lite V8 merc as a toy, but also I enjoy my daily tintop, hence the Merc gets little use. In fact I used to use the kit more than the Merc as I dont want it spoiling and repair bills are astronomical. £250 alternator - £278 pair of dizzy caps and rotors ...... etc etc.
