B pillar coat hook - major improvement? You decide...

Ha this reminds me of a new car ad from long ago where two salesmen were only interested in whether or not the new car had hooks for their jackets 😁

Car Covers

The moisture comes from or just under the first filler / primer layer. It has been strongly suggested that Reliant left the bodyshells in primer and often outside whilst waiting to be finished. That is always going to cause issues because conventional primers soak water up like a sponge. On top of ...

Car Covers

I wouldn't recommend you buy that one it's just a glorified plastic sheet which will do damage on the other hand breathable ones like the ones sold at Halfords are in my opinion much less harmful and vastly cheaper than a garage rent 😁

Power loss

I would not glue it,then what do you do when you have to remove it next time? maybe a clip made for exhaust systems (not the U-bolt type tho.) Presumably you're thinking of the Mikalor type clips ? http://www.mikalor.com/img/src/productosGr/AB%20SUPRA%20W2.jpg That's what I've got but won't be able...

Power loss

The pipe you're referring to, with orange seal, fits over the turbo outlet, which normally has a fixing lip at end. The standard clip uses a 6mm bolt that requires quite some tightening to compress the metal lips of the air tube. Much more compression than using eg a standard clip. That could be yo...

Power loss

I think it might be time for a picture as you mentioned an intercooler? The original crossover pipe is reasonably well located as it just goes from the turbo straight to the throttle body so doesn't get the opportunity to move much anyway.. Hi Phil , don't think I mentioned an intercooler ,the pipe...

Power loss

The good news is I've fitted back the pipe with the new orange gasket and it's definitely the cause of the power loss ,the bad news is I can't clip it on to stay for very long it blows off very quickly ,I believe the original pipe had a clip spot welded on the turbo end this seems to be missing from...

Power loss

Getting the pipe and new orange gasket fitted is proving tricky is there any trick to getting it lined up at both ends or is it just trial and error :D You get used to it! Put some silicone grease (or washing up liquid) on the inside of the orange seal - that makes it slip over turbo air output mor...
