  1. Starting at the Bottom of Westfield ownership 11 months ago

    You're not at the Bottom of Westfield ownership, your at the Top, Smashing job mate!
  2. Toyo R1R - which size?

    As said, 195 tyres are fine. R1rs are not generally available in the U.K. Due to their non Green credentials. Have a look on EBay and the German retailer Oponeo, you'll find them somewhere.
  3. Weber set up

    Might be a good idea to strip down the carbs and give them a thorough clean, then rebuild with a service kit from Eurocarbs.
  4. Essex Area Monthly Meet - 8th April

    Can't come now. I gave it start up today after 6mths of no use and now petrol leaking out of the carb vents. Carbs need a stripdown to find the cause.
  5. When Playboys Ruled the World.

    Well, I'm still around.
  6. Move over F1

    Adding ramps to the track would make the Speed Series a bit more of a challenge.
  7. Autonomous cars

    I used to rely on my hearing for avoiding approaching cars when crossing a road, a cursory look one way but not looking all ways. Had a very close encounter with a Prius last year when it was in stealth mode, never heard a thing, luckily the driver stopped literally 2".from my knee. I now actually look all ways for traffic when crossing roads and the words "Think Prius" are in my head.
  8. Windscreen glass replacement (wide body)

    I gave up with the rusty screws, just rivet the two parts together now.
  9. Essex Area Monthly Meet - 8th April

    You boys just reminded me, MOT time.
  10. Club benefits

    Best benefit is tech know how on this forum . I've sometimes thought of buying new parts for my car but after asking a question on the forum, I find that someone has come across the problem and a repair solution has saved me forking out for new parts. I did buy one part from a member in parts for sale that saved me £200, That alone pays for my membership for 7 years. Bit of a shame about the Meet times and you being on shift work,cant be helped.
  11. Essex Area Monthly Meet - 8th April

    As long as it's not hissing down I'll come.
  12. Windscreen glass replacement (wide body)

    Local glazier has done mine twice for £40 a go. I disassembled the frame for him and he put it all back together again, all done in 1/2 hr while I waited.
  13. Radiator query

    I have the Radtec and XE engine as Dave says , the coolant sensors are the same as he described, so must be right
  14. Autonomous cars

    Here's an interesting article, Who's to blame for Autonomous car accidents http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/cars/article-5467519/Driverless-car-crashes-blame.html Not to be decided for 3 years.
  15. Nose Grill for ZK

    You can make your own. I bought some mesh From Zunsport on Ebay. Lots of patterns, materials and colours available. Top tip - use a finer mesh to stop stones damaging the radiator eg. https://m.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_osacat=0&_odkw=wire+mesh+panels&_from=R40&_trksid=p2334524.m4084.l2632.R2.TR7.TRC1.A0.H0.Xgrille+mesh.TRS0&_nkw=grille+mesh&_sacat=107059
