Cheap 38 DGAS

At least the Brass pipes are ALL screwed in, so no popping out and spraying the engine bay, they can be removed and adapted to suit your own preference. :?:
As they use an electric choke they are ideal as a Cologne replacement.
I got one years ago to go on the GTC, but time is not on my side :cry:

se5a bonnet release

Hi Dan
Sounds like the hook is catching on the underside of the Latch unit.
Twisting the bonnet from side to side sometimes works that hook free.
Can you get a torch in to see the latch mechanism ?.

Front calipers and discs on a se5a

I had to buy at least 4 discs to get a discount and it was still more than the RRP of those.
Glad I`m packing it all in, the amount of money I have spent on supplying low cost parts, and the stock I have accumulated over the years. :dh
