Removing carpet glue

If it is thick, and set hard and well stuck down you might be able to grind it flat with those little abrasive cylinders that come with your Dremel. Might need to wear a mask though.
Just an idea, never tried it myself.

Any recommendations on paint for suspension parts

Has anyone used POR15 and then wanted to remove it after a few years? I understood it is quite difficult to do, which is why I've steered clear ( :) ) of using it.

Bit late to come to the party, but...
For the record, my Kempes Engineers Handbook tells me that 1/8" x 40 tpi is a Whitworth screw thread, and has an effective diameter of 0.109"
Sounds familiar?

Misfire at low revs might be a problem with the spark plugs/gaps?

Mikey Bikey's Scimega

Slightly pulling left or right I'd suspect "knock-back" of the pads by the discs, because of movement in the stub axles when you trounce round corners. I'm thinking of fitting the spacer system between the wheel bearings to avoid this. On the other hand, might be something completely different? See...

Fiat spider 124 1975

According to the Wikipedia page the max power put through the gearbox was 128 ps, so might not cope with Scimitar power. Nice DOHC engine though!

Hesitation at low revs

Perhaps it might be better to use some old fuel pipe if you any - that's already hardened - to minimise the likelihood of it collapsing with the vacuum?
Must be worth a try, anyway, don't you think?

Silverstone Classic 31-Jul - 2-Aug 2020

I see the date of the F1 British GP has now been fixed, and early-bird tickets are now on sale for next years' Classic.
Are we having the Club Stand again, and if so, please put our names down to attend with the Sabre Six.
Lets hope the weather is a bit kinder to us though! :o

window regulator

I've no idea how the 6 electric windows work, but my '81 911 SC has electric windows that have a scissors-sort of X system of lifters, and a motor gear/quadrant arrangement, I think. If this is a possible route I could take some pictures if I take a door card out. Porsche parts for older models are ...

Gauges removal.

I hate seeing it sit in the rain In case you don't already know, don't be tempted to put a rain-proof cover over it - there are lots of mentions on the Forum about micro-blistering caused by waterproof covers; even the Halfords expensive covers say "don't do it as it causes known problems..." Hope ...

Looks like a spiders long-term home; at least there shouldn't be many flies around!
