fitting 15x8 wheels ET0

you'll need spacers an inch or more wide at the front and they won't fit under the standard arches. I think 8s will fit on the back though.

Malpas Yesteryear Show.

KNW is #2085 - would explain why it's not showing on DVLA.

I didn't remind Tony on Sunday so I don't think he papped it.

GTC Manual Gearbox removal

Cologne is much easier to remove with box compared to the Essex - simply because of the extra room around the exhaust manifolds.

2019 CM Results

Good Evening Speed Lovers, The sun shone at Wiscombe Park Saturday and on days like that there is no better place to hillclimb. Unusually I’m able to use the terms ‘Wiscombe Park’ and ‘grippy track’ in the same sentence. Conditions were absolutely perfect and a great time was had by all. Steve Hill...

Fuel hose

I seem to remember writing this last month in another thread? I read that if you add water to your fuel, agitate it then let it settle, then siphon off the “water” that settles at the bottom, it will take most of the ethanol with it. Is that true or is it chemically bonded to the fuel and not that s...

Coupe on ebay - Now a Project

Coupe on ebay - Now a Project

Had a tidy up in the workshop today - which unearthed a coupe in the corner :shock:

Bypassed the heater (so that it still drives) and pulled out the rusty remains from inside (much easier than the 5 or 5a!)

This was behind the matrix
