  1. Santa Run, Sun 3rd Dec, Peak District

    Sorry to say that I won't be able to make the Santa run this weekend My steering column is still giving me some grief and I don't want to risk anything happening on a long run until I'm happy it's all working correctly. Enjoy the trip out and please post LOTS of pictures. BTW: If anyone needs a Santa outfit I have a good one that will now be spare.
  2. seat runners

    Merlin Motorsport do a set of universal seat runners for around £40 which I believe they are just under 30mm thick.

    I went for my first Westfield after watching a TV series about one being built. I did look at the other manufacturers but thought that the affordability of the Westfield beat the others hands down. Obviously I'm slightly biased, and it's not something that you will notice that much being based in the US, but when you visit the Westfield club stands at major events everyone always seems more open and willing to include you in the group ... whether you own one or not. Finally the wealth of knowledge on this forum and the willingness to answer all my stupid questions is worth a huge amount and I doubt the other kit car types have a group this good.
  4. Yorkshire breakfast club, 15th October.

    Sorry guys and girls ... still waiting on my steering column and it won't be here till next week so I won't be able to make it
  5. Santa Run, Sun 3rd Dec, Peak District

    Santa Andy_R reporting for duty Although I seem to recall having to drive through the a*se end of Rotherham in the dark last year so I do question about getting home in the light However it was a fantastic day out so I'll be there unless the weather is wet.
  6. Must be a new model...

    I went for the silver on black and was happy with the results as I felt it suited the car.
  7. Must be a new model...

    I got a set of the Demon Graphic ones and they've been great ... haven't faded or fallen off so well worth the money.

    Assuming my steering column/wheel is delivered this week and fitting goes smoothly I'll be there on the 15th.
  9. Bonnet Catch Identification

    I actually think you are right @RussH ... I believe the original builder put them on this way as the swept wings got in the way if done correctly. It still works though and I don't see any movement even at high speeds so it should be all good. Glad to hear the Quality Manager has given it a seal of approval ... now I just need to get it to a mirror finish
  10. Bonnet Catch Identification

    I finally found them on RS of all places. Very proud to announce all four have been replaced and they look SO much better. I know it's a little thing but when you roll with the vehicle of @Julie Hall - AO Representative, Peak District AO then you need to make sure your bling is looking good
  11. Boot box ideas

    I used some 3mm aluminium which I got power coated. Total cost was £40 inc. two locks and a long piano hinge. Over the winter I'll be improving it by getting two locks keyed the same, adding a handle and water proofing the very thin gap between the two pieces of metal. I know a few people that have put some bars on theirs to act as luggage carriers and I might do this as well.
  12. Cheesehead from across the pond.

    It's getting a lot more popular over here. The "International" games are drawing big crowds and nearly everyone stays till the end of the game (you don't get a mass exodus of people leaving at the end of the 3rd quarter for example). They keep talking that a UK based franchise will happen in the next few years but I'm not so sure there is as much enthusiasm for that in the US as there is in the UK. Also if you had a home team based out of London then that team would need to be play off contenders (at the very least) within the first couple of years or the fans may loose interest. The Jags, who have had home advantage over a few games in recent years, are currently not at that kind of level ... although they seem to be having a good start to the season this year so you never know. I have attached some pictures of my seat that I'm very lucky to get when I go to the games in London.
  13. Cheesehead from across the pond.

    Welcome James I myself am a San Diego Chargers fan having seen my first game in SD when I was in my teens on holiday. And yes I'm very much aware of the "San Diego" typo Sorry to hear you are a Cheesehead () although your fans always come out in force at Wembley ... no matter who is playing!!
  14. Yorkshire meeting, 3rd October

    I'll be there in tin top.
  15. Quick Question on Steering
