  8. The engine has been sorted, now on its way back to Simon. I knew I should of brought a parts cleaner could have saved me the heart ache and expense of another rebuild. Live and learn!!

  9. Not only has the engine i supplied to Simon need rebuilding, the car in which were going to Billing now needs a new cv joint and all front lower wishbone bushes replacing. Looks like there will be no money for spares!

  10. Engine I supplied for conversion not 100% fit. Boooo

  11. Very excited, just heard the engine conversion work is about to start. Yeah

  12. Hottest day of the year? Thats why I'm outside getting wet

  13. Just clearing out the garage and a set of brand new Engelmen mirors. Nice

  14. Hatch failed mot on split dust cover on top swivel joint Ooops. £5 later and 1 hour we have a legal car again. Hooorraahh

      No never tried it, always felt like it is a bit of a con

    4. HutchRoslin


      I have one and welded 2 random bits of metal together with no gas and it looked ok. Think I'll still buy a bottle for the car tho

  18. Hatch broke again leaving the Mrs stranded. The earth strap broke from the battery!!!! Go figure

    1. dog321fish


      Earth straps were mentioned as a possible problem in your earlier post regarding starting the car!

    2. Manta again

      Whilst the earth strap was obviously rubbish it wasn't causing any of the problems before. the car has been running fine for the last few weeks. Touch wood!!

  19. Thinking of going to the Beaulie Auto jumble, for a final scavenge of parts.Then I gotta sort out the garage so that I can actually get in it and start on the cars.

  20. Great time at Billing, thank you to all of you who made it happen. Good to catch up with members after my absence. Look forward to next year already. Just hope my car dosen't break down in the field again when I go to leave.Thanks to those who got her started again.
