Blaupunkt radio wiring

Hi there. I hope this may help. Connection 5 from the 'power block' will extend your electric aerial on switching on the radio. It's quite easy to install the wiring if not already there and will ensure the aerial is only extended when the radio is switched on. Good luck, Mike

To pinstripe or not to pinstripe

I would leave it plain, without the pinstripe. It's a striking looking car which doesn't need any adornments. Not that I'm opinionated, mind!

Emissions test and catalytic converter

Jim, that's an interesting anomoly. No SS1 came from the factory with a cat, so technically Megan shouldn't require one! Unless the MOT tester knows differently!

Emissions test and catalytic converter

Mike, that's great news. My understanding is that, 1800Ti powered cars were never fitted with a cat. When European regulations tightened up on exhaust emissions, the CA18ET motor was replaced by the Rover 'K' series motor. These were all fitted with catylitic converters. If one is factory fitted, th...

Emissions test and catalytic converter

Mike, I believe the Sabre 2 fitted with the Rover K series engine did have a cat fitted. I do know Reliant Parts World have them in stock. It is possible QRG do too. Let us know how you get on. Cheers, Mike

I saw a Scimitar and fell in love!

Welcome, what great taste you have. The Scimitar is a great car, practical too, a high speed hold all! I saw that one at Brooklands too, a few weeks ago.

Silicone hoses for 1800Ti

OK Jim, good point, I'll ask. It's possible prices may decrease as orders increase but, I'll ask the question.

Silicone hoses for 1800Ti

My car is due a coolant change and I thought that whilst it was drained, it would be a splendid opportunity to change the cooling hoses. Opinion seems to vary on the quality of what is available and the majority seemed to favour the silicone route. Classic Silicone Hoses were recommended and althoug...
