  1. Thanks richy! How’s the v8? Im thinking of putting a few photos up of the Turbo installation I’m doing for Dean Rudkin as it maybe of interest to some members .....makes a change from doing Supercharger’s at least!!
  2. Hi folks, how you all been? I know it's been a while but I've been none stop and I was just wondering how we go about uploading photos nowadays given photobucket royally screwed everything up a few years back and I've been away from the forum since it's upgrade.
  3. I have a vinyl plate on the nose. Been like it for years and numerous mots and police pass by’s no problem but I’m not kidding myself as I know it’s definitely not legal and would just plead dumb to it at the roadside and hope for a wrist slap
  4. assuming you've changed your adhesive vinyl number plate on the stylus.....which is technically as illegal as an undersized number plate
  5. It's a genuine and honest mistake made by Alan - we're all only human after all! Alan has supported the club a great deal over the years and acted quickly as soon as this was brought to light. Whilst I appreciate all this GDPR thing going off at the minute, please let us not blow this out of all proportion and loose a fantastic area sec!!
  6. I pay £95 for half a ton - so that works out at 19p per kg, so it sounds like Bob's being ripped off
  7. Im not even going to pretend otherwise.....Im extremely green-eyed jealous!!! Shes stunning Bob!!! Ive been toying with the idea of selling up the cars and buying a 1/3 size traction engine to play around with.
  8. Ive been known to make a tie bar bracket or 2....along with a few other bits and bobs If I can help, drop me a pm
  9. Just a thought; It maybe worth asking the hog-roast company to set-up at the back of the club stand this year instead of in the camping area. In previous years, the old camping area (plot 64) has been pretty much RHOCaR exclusive so plenty of space and easy to see that only members are getting pig-cobs. Given this year you'll be camping in the same area as everyone else at the show, space will probable be limited (especially if the weather is good) as well as every man and there dog trying to get a free pig-cob.
  10. I’ve got to get my gearbox oil leak fixed the the v8 first mate - not surprising trey are dead strict about oil drips - drop oil on the track and it shuts the whole thing down for at least an hour! Might take the vx tho if I can ever get it through the mot!
  11. We do Santa pod loads throughout the year so will probably be up for any of those dates.
  12. And unless Keith has cancelled, I'm sure the Ukrainian centre still has us booked in for this September.
  13. I am only 1 voice on the committee and as you all know I will be stepping down very soon because this is one of the decisions I've strongly disagreed with - and yes I'm probably spitting my dummy out over it but its because a lot of hard work and personal favours was put in to get it to where it is, only for it to be tossed aside because the committee basically can't be ar5ed and are using the 'only dates available' as a convenient excuse not to bother with it this year (September date was offered almost straight away after last years event and June was offered not long after, so these dates have been on the table for ages). I accept that I do hold a bias view on the EOSB given that the venue for the first few years was Hollowell (which I had close ties with) and then in last couple of years it has been held at the Ukrainian Centre (again, I have close ties with the venue). Both these venues I've managed to get the club and vastly reduced costs compared to other venues. My take on the situation is that the newer members on the committee would rather stick up some RHOCaR banners and write some cheques for other people's events instead of rolling there sleeves up and organising something (EOSB) themselves.
  14. Thanks Dan - I thought about dropping you a line as I remember seeing you now have a gas analyser.....however discovering the lack of a cat made the emissions problem pretty obvious!
