Another Euro car parts offer

Went to order some brake parts in a hurry last week thinking i would try ECP again and pick up locally. Entered email address for usual welcome discount to come through. Ended up buying elsewhere (via eBay) Now realising why I blocked ECP and de-registered. SO many spammy offer emails in just one we...

WATCO Floor coatings clearance - some cracking deals!

Was also tempted to get some of the single pack stuff Geraint, a bit less stressful to apply than the epoxy which you need to be quick with. Different tins but I think that's comparable to what I used for the 3rd picture - the paint came with the house! I've had one shipment arrive and got another o...

Oil mistake question

Oil will discolour quickly after running up post oil change.
I wouldn't concern yourself over the initial over filling. I suppose if it was really over filled it may prevent free flow of the turbo drain which would encourage more past the shaft seals.

Nowt to worry about if you ask me.

WATCO Floor coatings clearance - some cracking deals!

Bump on this. Now got various things coming.

Received an email with a buy one get one free on all clearance products. "BOGOF20"

That's a steal if you ask me!

G130 YCF sprint car

Excellent progress. Like the integration of the headlight panel and bonnet. Will be a bit of a bugger to remove, but looks great!

I spy CF window frames 8)

cheap Lidl plasma cutter

Damn. Why didn't I think of that!
I only bought the one, there was another half dozen there at least.

WATCO Floor coatings clearance - some cracking deals!

Just received an email notification on a Watco up to 80% off clearance, too good not to share to be honest. https://www.watco.co.uk/clearance If you've not heard of Watco before, then let me just say their products are absolutely superb. Proper professional grade stuff that you usually have to pay t...

cheap Lidl plasma cutter

Seems to be lower rated than the one in Andy's link but cheap enough all the same!

Short throw gear lever SS1 1600

You can do as Jim says, either with a spacer kit or by cobbling something together yourself. Otherwise the rose jointed quick shifts are available from about 50 quid on eBay. Think you will struggle to find one second hand, and even then probably not worth the saving. I quite like the placement of t...

Do just pull off and replug the connection. Never had a switch fail, but had a few dodgy connections.

Speedo/rev counter

What mileage is the car at? I've supplied various people with clocksets and usually got within 5-10k on mileage which I think is nice. Buuuut in the same breath that once plentiful box of spares is looking more empty, but I'm sure Jim has a good stash also. RPW may have some more. I had a new one fr...

Speedo/rev counter

1800ti (red grid, small rev counter) as above, also available new from RPW

13/14/1600 SS1 CVH type is actually for / from a Hyundai Pony, so there you go. Any issue with rev counter or instrumentation can usually be resolved, often just some soldering to the laminated circuit on the back.

E150 UOL rebuild - End of project :-)

It's not about "needing" such a thing I think. Very hard to justify having any of these vehicular toys really, other than when the mood takes you working on them is rather rewarding. That sense of accomplishment. If there was any rational to be applied to what's in my garage it probably would have a...

E150 UOL rebuild - End of project :-)

That's a real shame to hear you're throwing the towel in on the DET build. Modified fast cars, are in my view, not meant to be perfect. So a bit rough around the edges would be just fine, makes throwing it at the scenery more appealing! Looked to me like you had done all the hard work with chassis r...
