Re: project 360

Sorry this was a surprise to you - I made a point of showing the hole under the battery to your old man before I took his money. I could never sell a guy a car with hidden faults, especially a comrade V3M'er. Shame the fuse box rust has resurfaced. Be careful with that one, any rust near the suspens...

Re: Ebay bargain of the week.

Very cheap Lotus Europa, crying out for something meaty to be bolted into the back

Re: The Battleship, Williams, Sods law strikes my MoT!

Check it's not the bracket holding the switchgear - these are of crap design and bend and break. When you try to activate the highbeam, the whole assembly just twists and bends, so the switch doesn't get thrown. I've never seen the switchgear itself go bad, but there's a first time for everything. Y...

Re: The Battleship, Williams, Pre MoT Q's!

Re: koni adjustables help?!?!

There's a Koni leaflet in that big wad of paperwork I gave you - i think I had them set to 3 half turns out of a possible 5 - can't remember how many clicks there are but they're set at a little over half maximum stiffness. So will go quite a bit stiffer! There are holes in the casing to stick a wee...

Re: project 360

Looks like a bit of a mare :shock:

Well done getting it sorted sm40

I think there was a receipt in with the bearing - get in touch with Highland Auto Parts, Inverness for a refund.

Re: steering wheels help

I bent the stalks on that car so they don't catch - you can always bend them a little more, but remove them from the column and clamp them up in a vice before you try. But fair enough if you don't like the grandad spec wooden look :lol: Your dad seemed to like it, and I'm sure he'd put it to good use

Looking good fellah - I always wanted to slam it, but the wife wouldn't let me :mrgreen:

Glad you're making progress with the old beast. I chucked in a tube of Tigerseal if you choose to put the rubbing strip back on

Bad news friend

Co-driver is a lucky boy to walk away from that - side impact bars for the win!
