Castle Combe 20 October 2018

Total waste of a day - late starting, convoy run instead of first practice took forever and didn’t make up any time. First practice took ages, then lunch. First timed run took ages, then after being lined up for 15 minutes while the sun got lower and lower, the timing kit broke. Couple of re-runs an...

Gearbox T5 problems, update to fit RX8 6 speed box

Remove a car radio

There’s a metal plate behind the dash on the 5a between the radio and the dash panel.

Edit - couldn’t see the picture but your plate obviously isn’t fitted but the dash hasn’t been cut out.

I emailed him back querying it and he responded with a more sensible answer. what's the senders email address on the reply - presumably not Nigel's but something v...

Beware sending a BACS payment to QRG

Really sorry to hear this - unfortunately it's been going on for years - it used to be called the Friday afternoon scam and I remember a friend of a friend losing something like £200k on a house purchase.

2ads for sale cars

Around 14 Scimitars for sale on eBay that I can see?

The most expensive two are both at dealers - this rebuilt 6a (would it have originally had an 8 track in 1977?) at £10.5k and this 5a auto at £8k with wrinkly dash and reflectors on the rear vents - oh, and no V5 :roll:
