Blyton Park 8/9 September 2018

Well done, again,Tom. Blyton is not an easy track for taking photos, unless you've got an orange jacket! keep working at it.
Nice talking to the team yesterday.

B178RWK SS1 #54

Jim, I had no idea the car was in such a poor state of repair when I sold it to your son. I am downloading some cash and will organise a full refund in the next couple of days. I can only say how lucky all of us were in driving the car in that condition and not having a serious fire. Again, I can't ...

SE6a Boot Lock

HI, I don't suppose anyone has a picture of their solenoid-actuated boot lock installation to make it that I don't have to re-invent the process?

Curborough Sprint 2018 Photos

Great pictures Tom. I wasn't able to make it to Curborough so your pics show me what I missed. You should have your own posting page so that you get the credit (not your dad). I hope you used a long telephoto lens to keep you out of harms' way. Well done, keep 'em coming...

Tail Lights.

Paul,

if you are sure you are not bothered about originality, but could cope with smooth, how about this treatment? I am not sure where I saw it (it could have been on the forum) but I believe it lives in New Zealand. It went straight to the top of my list.

Heaven and Hell

Very brave driving an unknown 6a so far without a temp gauge! I would have left the fan on permenantly. Did you really mean foolish, Jim? Yes I agree. The problem I felt was that with an 'iffy' battery and voltage showing just 12 volts, I didn't want to risk killing the battery by running it all th...

Heaven and Hell

Yes Paul, it is the very same. I missed it first time round on Gumtree and had just about given up hope of ever being able to afford one. I am confined to barracks today awaiting the couriers knocking down my front door, then I can recover my new toy. My next step is to download a copy of Peters' br...

Paul, Dave the previous owner was devasted about the problem, but I assured him that's part of owning a historic vehicle. Otherwise the car looks to have been well looked-after under his stewardship, I hope I can do as well as he did.

Heaven and Hell

Hello again. Just a note to re-introduce myself. Some of you may remember that I had a year with a 1977 automatic se6a (Jan '16 to Jan 17) followed by an early 1600 SS1 which had a galvanised chassis retro-fitted (April '16 to Aug '16) which caused havoc to my knees due to being a manual gearbox. Th...
