ss1 hardtop collection liverpool

If you're at the breakers yard I would suggest it's worth getting the rear wings or at least the inners from the D reg red SS1 being broken. They are from a galv car and hence the later molding with greater width. Nice to have the extra bit of clearance especially if running wider wheels! Ade, hopef...

Curbs Job List

I might do an oil change. Maybe swap some wheels. Think the floor mats needed straightening. Meanwhile next door. Turbo on, turbo off, fuel pipes connected, fuel pipes disconnected and I've seen all of 3 different pumps in the boot recently. Scratchy scratchy heads, why does this not work?! Not been...

ScimFest@Curborough 2017

A thought (I have these) on improving Curbs from my perspective. The organised parking. I find it very much a nuisance and counter productive. To me all models are of interest, and whilst I understand the desire to sort them accordingly into line ups of model, I don't particularly see the need of it...

Price guide for GTE SE6b

Thing is rust + bodywork is a full on nightmare. I mean, it never goes away. You restore it, clean, treat, prep. Do everything. But it's always there, in a seam, somewhere, lurking, just waiting for the next decade to creep up and set you right back to where you started. There are many things I pref...

SS1 rear view mirror

I once used a mesh and glue type kit which worked really well until the screen needed replacement....

Now I still have part of the windscreen stuck to the stem.

Sat-Nav advice please !

I have a love hate relationship with our Garmin. It's mainly hate though. As a user the interface doesn't seem very friendly or logical. The routing and re routing options aren't great. I understand cyclists love them.... but then they probably enjoy being taken down random country lanes. And I'm on...

Recommend me a (4X4) tow car

Do they make cars with a sensible load space any more?

I thought it was all intrusive panels, collagen bumpers, high thresholds and thick raked pillars now?

Give me a 90s Volvo estate any day..

After market as in, off the shelf new seats, or from a donor car?

REAR DIFFERENTIALS

Regarding the Torx head bolts. Lump hammer and drift to the heads first before trying to crack 'em free!

Especially true for the M8 T45 capheads on the CVs

That may depend on the championship driver ballast factoring for next seasons' sprinting! I'm an undersquare sort of lump, shorter in the leg, and a 34" waist would leave room for a few pies. Colour, I'm not fussed, I stand little chance of blending in with the rest of the shoppers at Waitrose anywa...

The trick is knowing where the photographers sit, so they can get a good shot of you through the screen.

Rather enjoying the pictures being posted on this thread. I'm developing a nostalgia I can't actually claim!
