Owd Git Arrives !

Welcome to the madhouse.
An SE6/GTC should suit you, plenty of room as long as you stick your right elbow out of the window :mrgreen:

Classic Days 29-30 Aug 2020

Ah yes, bars and restaurants have at last reopened, and France will welcome Europeans (and possibly British) without quarantine as from 15 june.

At the moment we have the ridiculous situation that we can go to Italy, which is open, but may not be able to get back into France :roll:

Classic Days 29-30 Aug 2020

The Swiss can do it - at Morges in 2012 I lost count but there were more than ten. I think our best score is seven so far (we have had more cars but not all Scimitars :roll: ) Well done for the club recognition ! Magny-Cours is a lot nearer than Le Mans, but it is still a lot of kilometres from us ...

Dual circuit brakes

Amazing what you can do with a drill and a hacksaw (and a vice). My angle grinder died recently, I don't think spitting out ball bearings is a symptom of corona virus so it must have been something else. Anyway I looked up hacksaw on internet to remind me how they work and managed to make this. I ho...

Dual circuit brakes

Happy ending - almost. Happy, yes, the last pumps on the pedal for the right rear brake put everything to rights. Brakes are sensitive and very effective. But (there's always a 'but') pedal travel is much too long. This time though, I know why. I had a dim recollection of a spacer which I made becau...

Ah, that's kind of you.

There are so many white cars in restoration that it would be difficult to identify the other car. It looks quite a project :| Interestingly the seller also seems to have sold last year a certain well-known car which I didn't even know was for sale ...
