Youngest 6A?

You can’t do it at a PO if your V5 says it’s not old enough (registration date as they’ve stopped accepting changes to build date so you’re not eligible until next year). You need to contact Chairman Kevin, who is the DVLA point of contact for the Club. He should be able to confirm build date to the...

Fitting sliding rear brake slave cylinders

If anyone has a foolproof and quick way of fitting the cylinder and clips, I'm all ears. Now done, but not a job I'd like to repeat in a hurry!

rear brake sliders

I’m not sure which manual it’s referring to (there are a few) but the parts list is quite good for orientation, and is on the GW site.

Edit - autobooks as mentioned in the link :oops:

The shots of a cologne in an SS1 look like one of the pre-production cars (note the modified chevette ARB), could just be someone joking around.
Reliant actually stated they were looking at a Cologne version before launch.

My Quest for Alternate Wheel Rims

The same -3 offset on wheels that are an inch wider means you have 1/2” extra wheel either side - so, yes it will foul the suspension. Use something like www.willtheyfit.com to calculate clearance. Edit, I’ve just read the first post and Mark describes it much better - and Daryl linked willtheyfit a...

The tiny KL V6 was put into an MX5 so I expect it would fit into a small sports - the pistons are so small that they rev really well.

I suspect the fact that it was cheap (Nissan we’re already phasing it out for the DET) and already RWD played a big part too.

Colin’s V8 was equally monstrous! There was only room for one leg/foot to operate the pedals so you had to cross your left leg under your right :D

Sounded great though :mrgreen:
