Curborough 19 August 2018

Of course supplementary regs can be changed :roll: I’m sure many of us saw the MG Car Clubs Wiscombe regs this year - where Class 7 – MG Car Club Speed Championship was omitted from the published Supplementary Regulations as an invited Club :D It’s a simple typo and just needs an email to all entran...

ABS System for a 5A???

I think the problem would be the control unit - anything too modern and it’s all integrated via CANBUS. Are there any aftermarket standalone options?

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

It had a for sale sign inside (not displayed) so I don’t know if he’s just bought it, or if it’s for sale.

Saw this today, which reminded me that I took a photo of it in the local garage last week :D

5 series seat overhaul

Not many photos today unfortunately. Managed to get all of the foams and covers on and the tilt mechanisms all went back together without a problem. Need to do a little tensioning here and there but they look better than the photos :) 713D857F-09AF-426F-9993-876027E27ABE.jpeg 540045B9-577B-4DBB-9ACB...

8 Ball

Checked all of the lights and brakes etc, Taxed and MOTd it online last night (I will probably take it in for an MOT later in the year), fitted the seats today and drove it home tonight. Has a slight misfire, the digital temp gauge is a bit erratic, the fuel gauge wasn’t working (but seems fine now ...

Bogging at 4000 rpm

All petrol now contains up to 5% ethanol as stipulated by the European fuel specification EN228 legislation. Lots of it is E10 now.

Bogging at 4000 rpm

Pretty sure that SP98 in France still has ethanol - only 5% as opposed to the 10% in SP95. The trouble is, there’s no international standard anymore.

SS1 centre console

They all suffer from being far too thin and very brittle on the base - the black plastic glued on the bottom is actually factory :D

If yours is better than that, it should be an easy repair before painting?

Growly gearbox

The only way of telling if it’s the later “uprated” box is to look at the front when it’s removed - the plate with the blue bolts shows it has the extra bearing.

Okay - one switch panel in VGC - some overspray (which I could remove but won’t bother if you’re going to paint it anyway :D ) and a small tear in the bottom right corner of the radio aperture (should be hidden by the radio surround?)
