Vredestein Sprint Classic tyres

If you are looking for originality there is another tyre available in 185/80/14 H rated...the Dunlop Sport Classic..and Dunlop seems a rather more retro British tyre name than Vredestein. Don’t know what the factory 6/6A fitments were but I think the OEM 5A fitment was Pirelli CN72...no longer avail...

Wet or dry sand clear coat

I used upol 1k acrylic clear first time I have sprayed anything. Happy with the results so far just dont want to mess it up now :o With an air dry lacquer like that I would say 2 days in a warm setting for it to be hard. Playing devils advocate I might question why you might want to sand it a at al...

Think I'd rather have Josh's for around half that! :shock:
Or the red V6 for less than half!

I can only see that white Coupe sat in a spotless garage ( you know the sort,with a polished tiled floor),covered with a bespoke cover.
Can’t see it being driven very much...

Stunning Coupe

I wouldn’t worry about the quality of the ad,although it could be improved.It’s not as if there are loads of other top quality Coupes for sale. The ad as is will grab the attention of anyone who wants one and on inspection the car will sell itself. Personally I prefer Car and Classic to sell the bet...

Oaksey's XJ6

I do recall when I had my D type recreation,with it's XJ6 engine and 0/D box,the clutch plate would stick quite often if left for more than 2 or 3 weeks...so perhaps this is an issue with this engine/ box? I always managed to free it by turning the engine over with the car in top gear,brakes on and ...

Nice looking coupe 4a project here

Yes,that does look like a viable project rather than junk that's stood in the rain for the last 25 years.

Still much to do,so not for the faint hearted.

TYRES AGAIN

Sorry to bring tyre subject up again but just been let down with supply of 195 75 14 92H NANKANG tyres. I got 2 a month or so ago and have them fitted as they seemed good price and good name and thought would get another 2 to replace the next two tyres when front end rebuild completed. The time has...

Standard tyre sizes

To modernise and go wider and retain a similar rolling radius then it would be 185/70 to replace 165/80... and with the suspension in good condition should be no rubbing,but 185/80 would be wrong. Love those replica Minilites with knock on centre locks,the best retro look alloys IMO. I had some on a...

Jay Leno not Leon and they get repeated on satellite tv regularly
Sorry about the typo,my excuse is the predictive text because it also wanted to put an "i" in Frazer!

Didn't realise it was on TV at all,I've never spotted it.
