Re: 'A HOT N' Gold 1600

I have been pootling around in 'A HOT N' to and from work pretty much since I bought the car. My Land Rover is off the road for some tin worm eradication (although recently it's been on the back burner) so I've been using the SS1 as a daily driver. I've been extremely impressed at how reliable it's ...

Re: Be SS1 MAD

I didn't hear you turn up earlier which is a good sign! Although I do miss my 6:30am 'alarm clock' of you burbling down the road!

Re: Be SS1 MAD

Don't remind me about the sighting lap, that was quite embarrassing. :oops: Although, I never claimed to be anything but a novice and it was onwards and upwards from thereon! Nice write-up, our little cat and mouse chase was fantastic fun and I'm itching to get out on track again (once I have made a...

SS1 exhaust from YO8 to RG10

Looking to get a dismantled exhaust system from YO8 (Selby) to RG10 (Reading). Bit of a trek but don't s'pose anyone is making that journey in the near future? :lol:

Re: 'A HOT N' Gold 1600

Found the culprit for my rubbish handbrake today. The N/S was operating as intended but the O/S cable had broken apart rusted solid inside. http://i1172.photobucket.com/albums/r561/Max_Benton/A%20HOT%20N/Handbrake%20cable/019_zpsbyfsblap.jpg Sourced a used but salvageable cable, however it was a bit...

Re: 'A HOT N' Gold 1600

Service complete and found some nasties including split water pipes and knackered HT leads. Nothing we can't fix though :lol: http://i1172.photobucket.com/albums/r561/Max_Benton/A%20HOT%20N/Service/IMG_20160208_113155534_zpsibr0jllk.jpg http://i1172.photobucket.com/albums/r561/Max_Benton/A%20HOT%20N...

'A HOT N' Gold 1600

Naturally, living next door to Philip (Reliant Reviver) would eventually lead me to buying an SS1. I've been on the hunt for a few months and came close to buying one a couple of times, however, when I saw Dave Poole's old scim for sale in Sittingbourne I KNEW I had to have it. Philip was the influe...

Re: New SS1 owner from Reading

Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome, I already feel at home! HI MadMax, Glad to see you're enjoying my old SS1 :D She looks much better on the new KN alloy wheels, which is something I would have loved to have purchased for her when I owned it, but sadly I hadn't got the budget or the space, so ...

Hi Jim, thanks for the photos.

It currently has a gorgeous set of kn diamonds on it which I rather like. Can't wait to get the roof down when the weather's better and get some snaps! Until then, I have plenty of work to be getting on with :D

Hello! I'm Max, 19 Years old, I live in Reading and I'm a self confessed car fanatic. I've been lurking on the forum for a while now but thanks to the help of 'reliant-reviver' (RR) I have, as of today, bought my FIRST SS1! I have been looking for one for a while and 'A HOT N' , the gold SS1 owned b...
