    Age related plate

    Unfortunately without a v5 for a donor car, you wont be able to get an age related plate. Having said that, Q plates have their benefits so I wouldnt be worries about going that route.
  2. Depends how quickly I get the new car built, would imagine I'll get at least one Wales trip in.

    All on the first page mate
  4. Yeh it’s pretty good base, so couldn’t turn it down! The Volvo axles pretty strong, seen Volvos around 450bhp still running them and only having issues when they are trying to launch them down the drag strip on slicks. So should be fine for my smokey old pinto
  5. Well I suppose it is about time I show you all what is replacing the Robin Hood, so here it is, the first video in a project car series. Look forward to hearing your thoughts. I'll change the topic title to something more meaningful in a few days so those who are interested dont have the surprise spoilt. Also, for those of you who havent seen them posted elsewhere, there have been a couple of videos showing some mini-projects going on prior to the start of the build, so you may be interested in catching up on this playlist https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhF8mZsmx_w&list=PL-_tWQqniU8kE9fgNjIv3RsQQ0AwjvdbN
  6. I always wondered what TFM stood for, and now I know I live near the Bridgnorth one.

    Still got a load of valve train bits, the pulley, and a mix of bolts for tings like bellhousing to engine.

    Anything particular you were after? Not sure I have much left but I can double check.
  9. If they've broken then would be worried about the rest of the harness. TRS do sell spares though http://totalrestraint.mc.rhp.io/accessories-harness-accessories/trs-accessories/snap-hook-kit_ct496bd191pd1681.htm
  10. Mine was very much like that
  11. Thats not the price We had to put in a high price to stop just anybody booking on as a trader without prior approval. If you email the events email address on the advert then they will provide a discount code EDIT: Added an extra 9 to try and make that more obvious.
  12. Are we talking fr32 and fr30, or rl32 and rl30? There is a significant difference in the advice that will follow depending in which it is. what is the rest of the spec of the engine? Or is standard other than cam and carbs?
  13. That location sounds about right, mine ended up roughly in line with the engine mounts too and meant some careful shaping of the reinforcement.
  14. Can’t help with details but I believe the answer is yes and the public “advert” is here
  15. Absolutely zero, completely unnecessary and I think wouldnt actually work with it wired in with the accuspark.
  16. Agree, the kit cars might be the show, but the kit car owners are the ones who want to attend the show. I love the free entry, but I don’t know if any other car niche where the vehicle owners get into shows free.
  17. Its "probably going to be the last ever show" ever since I started going
  18. No need for ESC2 with that setup. Should just be able to wire it like this Set the ignition timing and away you go.

    Shocks and springs now sold as are the hubs
  20. Does look that way at the moment. I have tested it on my iphone and correctly appears in my subscribed calendars. The calendar format used is the standard for calendars so should be compatible with all.
  21. You can subscribe to the calendar already, which adds it your your preferred electronic calendar - outlook, iphone, android, google, etc. To do so, on the device you want to subscribe to the calendar on, go to the calendar, click the cog icon, and click subscribe to icalendar feed.

    Fuel economy

    Fuel injection makes a huge difference! Definitely the way to go for economy.
  23. I would be but between doing the discs and pads on the Scooby and seeing the mother in law for her birthday I don’t think I’ll have the time
