SS1 Rear Skirt

I'm not allowed to sit with the Nobles. Scruffian like me is kept in the scullery. Who can answer me this. Is the integrated lip spoiler on the MK1.5 bootlid done as part of the main molding process? Never looked close enough at the bootlid I had (now with Jim) but I can only think it must be added ...

C313FHB , SS1 no#437

The standard ones are fine. Probably produced a decade ago.

Hopefully GW resolve the issue with the vented discs soon.

SS1 Rear Skirt

Yet they denied their existence when I asked about them years ago!

I didn't find them in the stores either.

The Reliant Eagle

I thought it was a phoenix.
In which case, the tendancy for things associated with Reliant to go up in flames and the number of times they started anew after going into receivership if I had to guess :lol:

CVH engine numbers and dates

Streuth Jim. Got enough CVHs there?

Quite right on the other location. Much easier to find as well!

CVH engine numbers and dates

The LPG thing is in reference to the Dave Barker cvh guide. He also notes that all CVHs seem to run fine with unleaded and he had only come across recession on one engine which was highly tuned. To date the head you will find the exact casting date in a recess on the side of the head under inlet por...

The Green Machine - Sprint Car Build

Can you not reason with the TVR lump in the Coupe now that you have a ready and willing alternative?

It might be less inclined to throw a wobbly if it isn't always guaranteed centre of attention.

2.0 cvh?

It's quite easily identifiable as not a 1985 cvh so I would proceed with caution given your intended usage!

Front damper length?

All wise words Craig, you'll find no conflict from me! Regarding the top ball joints, yes if quality then no problem. But imperative to use high tensile mounting bolts, or mount underneath the top wishbone. Likewise high tensile nylock on the joint itself and done up to the right torque ( which can'...

Front damper length?

Additional to the fragility of the upper wishbones / shock brackets; The standard rubber bushings may not be up to the extra load over time and usage, consider the size of the lowers versus the uppers. Likewise, ball joint wise, the lower balljoint is larger and better placed to deal with the spring...

Front damper length?

Don't think I would want to run inboard coilovers on a Road SS1. Not without a lot of supporting mods and strengthening.

DRIVING in EU

I'm just looking forward to the reintroduction of the Austin Maestro and Reliant Robin post brexit. Strong and stable just like the government. Fairly sure it won't be too much of a headache to hop the channel and go motoring. There might just be a bit more nonsense to entertain along the way. I sha...

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

If you're really rather keen, you could always approach Matt and see how dearly he wants to hold onto the position.

I was short of volunteers when I wanted to step away from SS1 registrar.
