Cheers Oldcon, Its nice to know its not just me who's had issues like this. Seems mad that many owners fit tubular manifolds to improve performance only to then restrict any gains by forcing the gas through the restrictive midbox. I'm not sure what the new type midboxes will do to the exhaust note y...

Project Exhaustion? I've had the car up on axle stands more or less since it came back from the painters, Its made acsess better for jobs under the car and the working height is a bit better for attaching bumpers and working inside the car. While spending some *quality time under the car routing a ...

Fiberglass repair

Ran over an animal? To repair the rear of the wheelarch I would camp some thin steel to the return lip of arch and then to fill in the gap with a peice of thick card wrapped in plastic make sure you get something solid wedged behind it so it cant move. This should give you something the correct shap...

Stainless Bumpers and other shiny things... This post is far more straightforward... I've bought some shiny stainless (Harrington) bumpers and fitted them to the car! They have actually been sat round for about 2 years, as it did not seem worthwhile fitting them while the paintwork was rough. All t...

The alternator saga (part two!) The pulley I ordered arrived and the diameter looked pretty good, http://www.industrialbritain.co.uk/forumstuff/scim/831.jpg Unfortunately the diameter of the groove was two wide and I had to spend another £16.20 on another one. So far the £20 alternator has actually...

Generating more work for Myself...! As standard the GTE has a Lucas ACR 17 Alternator producing around 35 amps, For most of the time I've had it my car has had a 55amp Lucas alternator fitted, a nod to the fact that the original was probably ok on totally standard car but once you start introducing...

SS1 & Ti Parts for sale

Interested in hardtop fixings. Do they include the two clamp fixings that go at the back? Currently my hardtop is missing these. I already have the bits that go by the seatbelt mounts.

Cheers

Black beast went through 4 GRP ...

Joe, I fitted a Dolomite Sprint splinter to my 5.(SAR). You'll find a description on my rebuild thread somewhere. You have to gently heat the ends in order to bend them up to fit the bodywork. A hot hairdryer or similar is probably sufficient. Cheers Geoff, I'll have a look at your fitting descript...

I've neglected this thread a bit, as I've got lots of partially completed jobs bits which are not quite finished which is annoying, some jobs are waiting for my mate Dave's particular attention (such as the main loom modifications) other jobs have been slowed by the need to do things in a set order....

Type 9 five speed gearbox

Looking for a type 9 with a view to upgrading the Crossflow Rebel. The better ratio top would be of benefit as well as the type 9 being easier to shorten the remote to get the gearstick somewhere sensible rather than it being behind the driver! Anyone got an unneeded spare from a SS1 they’d be willi...
