Hillclimb prep

Will see what’s what. Funny feeling we may be booked at a car show with trade stand that weekend? If we are free, will get in touch for any paddock passes which may be available and hopefully get to see some of you there. Hope this silly weather sorts itself out before then. Thanks again.

Hillclimb prep

Will try and get to Harewood for a nose round and a day out. Are the public allowed into the paddock? When we build the classic rally cars we normally leave both seat belt types in the cars. For one it makes it easier to use as a road car and there is always a fall back if the scrutiniser takes a di...

Cheers guys, depends how much work arrives, may get to Blyton. Went there a couple of years back with a Lotus and had a great day. Plenty of room in case of right leg seizure. Have a licence as we do a bit of classic rallying. Keep you informed. :D

Now we’ve eventually got the SS1 Nissan sorted, moving towards what we bought it for in the first place, sprints and climbs. Without trawling through all of the posts, what is allowed for road car spec.? Cars seats are knackered so will be replacing those. Think I’ll sort a seatbelt bar on the roll ...

1.8 distributor guts

We’ve loaned our spare distributor to a mate with a ti and wondered if the guts are available to repair the things? Would rather have our one back if he can get the bits to fix his. Cheers

Panel gaps

Gas struts have all on to hold the lid up so I suspect original. The settings we have tried have been with them on. As mentioned the old one fit fine with the old gas struts on. Lid closes and latches fine. Will try the aforementioned hole alteration and see what falls off. Will post a pic if we sor...

Panel gaps

I can get my thumb in the gap even with the hinges all the way back in the slots. I’ll have a go with the machine tomorrow and make the slots a bit deeper. Hinges fell down on their own when we had the boot liner out to sort the fuel leak, so not seized up or anything. The gap at the back between th...

Panel gaps

Hi all, just fitted new or newer boot lid to the 1800ti. Has anyone got any pics of the gap between the boot lid and filler neck panel? Ours seems to be huge! Just want to check before we start altering hinges. I know these little cars were never known for there fine fit and finish, but does look wo...

Light throttle jerking

When we had grief with our 924 sprint car on 45’s the Dyno guy reckoned if the screws were out any more than 3 turns the jets were wrong. We were told the idle jets or progressive jets as they are, only work up to around 1500- 2000 revs anyway then the pumps and mains take over. Ours eventually ende...

Petrol tank

Got the leak sorted. Wasn’t the tank after all that but the filler neck rubber. Seemed to be holding a small amount of petrol after going round a left hander then leaking because it was rotten around the clips. Replaced the fuel pipes anyway as they looked in a similar state. Luckily we had a bit of...

Failed with the Mini sale, young man with large dreams but small pockets. Still on line for sale though. Will be in touch when we gain a parking space for a new project. :D
