Well, that’s different..

Over the years I've seen some dodgy project cars on eBay but that must be the worst!! Apart from it being, possibly, a source of spares for another SS1/ti I can't see that the conversion has a single redeeming feature. What a waste of a rare fast & fun car. Sad to see :(

Tiger Adhesive

Milliput may be another option. It's 2 part modelling putty, available in various colours (including black), will stick to stuff - not sure it's actually an adhesive though, sets rock hard & can be sanded, painted, drilled, tapped etc. I've no experience of sugru but I've seen videos of it being use...

Derelict SS1 :(

It seems that the chap who's spotted the car is a delivery driver - he may be able to confirm the registration but I'm not sure he'll be able to get the vin number. I've asked my friend to ask so we'll have to see what happens.
I'll obviously let you know if I hear anything :)

Photo os said SS1. There's talk on the FB group that the car behind it, under the tarp, may be a Marcos of some sort....

Derelict SS1 :(

My friend is a member of a Facebook group called Unloved & Abandoned Classics. Another member has just posted this photo of a blue B REG SS1 (possibly B445GOM). The person who's posted it says it's been in the same spot since 1997! A gate was tied to the bumper but over the years the weight of the g...

fuel sender

I found it useful during my rebuild to print off the circuit diagram & get it laminated. That way it's garage proof to a degree & available to refer to without going online (which is not always easy or convenient). For what it's worth my petrol light goes out after a few seconds & long before the ga...

Oil catch tank location?

So it's been a gorgeous day today but a wee bit too hot for yours truly, as a result I've spent some of the day in the garage. I've fitted the catch tank - which wasn't as easy as I thought it was going to me - & I then spent another hour or so deciding where to run the pipes. The larger pipe from t...

Oil catch tank location?

Here's a photo of crowded drivers side inner wing - was thinking of putting catch tank on chassis rail between blue oil pipe & earthing strap (more or less under the oil filter) or on the chassis rail by the rad fan support bar (not sure if the catch tank is too tall for it to go there though).

Oil catch tank location?

Thanks for the photos/info, that's probably the best/most logical place for it. Unfortunately that's where the tubing for the air filter runs so there isn't space for it - the air filter itself sits just behind the driver's side headlight. I don't have a spare wheel fitted so wondered if it'd go on ...

Oil catch tank location?

Possibly a dumb question it is there an ideal spot in the engine bay for an oil catch tank? I'm currently running the car with 2 little filters on the oil/vapour outlets (Zetec engine - both filters on driver's side). I've not had any negative comments about the filters at MOT time, or any undue oil...

RS3 Tyres & 15" Wheels For Sale SS1

GLWTS one of the best looking wheels ive ever seen on an SS1, genuinely suited the car and made it look much more modern. Ref buckle, a guy i know has a pukka machine for taking buckles out, quick and simple and seems that many modern cars suffer from pothole buckles due to 17/18/19/20 wheels and u...

Rear diff rubber mounts

I seem to remember that the diff is mounted to the chassis by some rubber mounts. I also seem to remember reading that these mounts were no longer available. Is this the case & if so what do people use as an alternative?

Many thanks :)

Whiny rear diff - advice needed

Ta for that & it's food for thought as whilst I do use 1st gear it is pretty much redundant.

Just out of interest Jim how much would you want for a standard 3.92 diff?

Thanks again :)

Whiny rear diff - advice needed

Sorry if it's a dumb question but what would the difference be between a 3.62 diff when compared to the normal (3.92?) diff?

Many thanks :)
