Rat Rod (progress)

Yep it's upside down and the pins are such that's it's possible to have it so. The photo was just a mock up, it's now the the right way up :mrgreen:

Rat Rod (progress)

Another small step forward. After some bush confusion, I've fitted poly bushes and lowering spacers to the front passenger side. I'll need to turn the car around to do the drivers side. While I had stuff apart I've painted including the shock.

EuroCrapParts - What a discount

ECP discounts are really confusing. I'm lucky enough to get trade prices at ECP and depending on the online deal will depend on which is cheaper. I've always had good customer service from the local branch which is why I use them. On a positive note any of you who have a Halfords trade card, did you...

Se5a Spacers that sit between the lower wishbones and the damper lower mounting bracket

The 1/4 inch thickness is the same as 6 series. I'll double check I can find the 4 I had if you'd like them.

Bush confusion

Trouble is I'm not even sure the yellow ones are superflex. They where in an unmarked bag, I'm not even sure which of the club traders I bought them from.

Bush confusion

Next stupid question. I bought from one of the could traders at curbs a few years ago some poly bushes for the front suspension on rat rod. I've finally got round to changing them and I seem to have the wrong bushes. I've got a bog of 6 yellow Polly bushes with 4 metal tubes, the tubes don't fit the...

Air filter won't fit?

Pictured below is what I thought was an original air filter. I got it, I think with a job lot of scimitar spares I bought several years ago. I was planning to shot blast and paint it before fitting it (I've already bought the filter). I was curious about the the summer setting and where to duct the ...

Claim to fame

I was on Motor mouth as a young boy (Saturday morning show in the late 80s)

I was on the gadget show about 6 years ago as part of the team that built a chainsaw powered Street luge.

Oh and I'm 1476th in line to the Dutch throne.
