Almost ready for paint!

[ Just be cautious, I've had a few of their pictures pop up on my Facebook feed and from what I have seen they do not follow the correct process of fibreglass repairs. Check my post on the rssoc page for the correct process vs the 'bodyshop' way. Alex B Alex, Rich has undertaken work on many differ...

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

No confusion about FWB 144H. It was Bev Fawkes car with BGF 900G as its private plate. It’s back to it original plate now and I assume Blue Thunder will have Bevs plate if it ever goes on the road.....

Beware the car thieves

I'm with Corky though, if they want the car I want them to take it, without fear of threat or anguish to my family. I disagree. It is because people roll over and give in that these lowlives get away with it. At some point we have to stand up and say enough is enough. Even now most people at the sc...

Beware the car thieves

Coupe exhaust manifolds needed

Here are some pictures of the ones from FWB 144H. The headers are not stainless, but the collectors and rest of the exhaust are. IMG_0458 2.jpg IMG_3831.jpg IMG_3830.jpg IMG_4396 2.jpg IMG_4398.jpg I've had sets of the headers and collectors made in stainless for about £800. That was two years ago. ...

SS1 master cylinder

I tried all of the usual BL people, no one stocks them so I phoned QRG. He is going to try to take 2 out of a used master cylinder for me.....at a price of £15 plus vat! I need these but I won’t be using QRG again! I’ve bought a master cylinder seal kit from eBay for £7. I’ll let you know what it’s...

2.5 Coupe for sale

It's still a lot of car for not much money.

Matching the red won't be easy but it could be made to look a great deal better for not too much with someone good at painting.

Sabre L932 LNU 1.8i - Inlet Manifold

Thanks Craig.

Could anyone comment on whether the marking on the two manifold-to-head mating faces is 'usual' or is this manifold pretty beat-up?

Sabre L932 LNU 1.8i - Inlet Manifold

I have been considering selling my red 1993 Sabre throughout the Summer, but having used and enjoyed it in May and June, I'd ignored the sensible option to move it on in Summer and left it in the workshop whilst I used and worked on other vehicles. A few weeks ago workshop space was needed to be abl...

Re-placing & re-route fuel pipes

Agree with Jim. Bit more work but means it’s easy to change them next time. Move pump to locate on cross member at same time.
