    I wish! How come I can remember your power units, but not what I had for lunch yesterday.

    I got a personalised number last year, not been assigned to a vehicle yet. A V750.

    You have a good memory Andrew!

    Not saying your wrong mate coz you know what you have just had to pay, but your link says cars registered before 1 march 2001, which I don't understand as I have seen the below showing after 01/04/17 and PLG, both different £'s. Am I missing something!!
  7. PLG over 1549cc - £255 plus first registration fee, which WAS £55! Should be simple to work out, but far from it IMHO . Dont forget you can check online to see when your car is taxed if you've got a reg. already! My paperwork arrived a couple of weeks after it appeared as taxed online!

    Terry swapped from a Pinto.. via VX, Busa, Duratec and Millington engines .. easy peasy!

    Have booked onto Cadwell, Sunday. Expecting a bit of mist early on, but fingers crossed it disperses mid morning. There's still some forecasts showing sunshine, but I wont get my hopes too high. Its still showing an early booking price, (£109) so I'd guess it's nowhere near capacity. https://www.msvtrackdays.com/car/calendar/2019/feb/24-cp/

    Registration! what a minefield of paperwork. I have a reg plate already paid the assignment fee, can't work out what the the first year road tax will be so I know what cheque to write out. [yoda voice] 'confusing the first road tax is'

    Not sure when Capn. Colonial was registered, but he certainly looks like an old kit!! or words to that effect.

    May be of interest, this is my standard 250 setup! Not criticising what you're doing, just throwing in some thoughts based on my experience into the melting pot! Not a right or wrong answer on this IMHO. I was concerned about heat, and ended up putting stick on heat reflective sheet I had for panelling, on brake and clutch cylinders, around clutch reservoir, and chassis diagonal and brake pipe. Considered putting more heat shielding in, but was concerned it may restrict airflow and potentially make matters worse, who knows! Been fine for 5.5k miles to date, and in ambient of 30deg! Keep up the good work. You can just see the additional heat protection below!

    That would certainly explain it.

    Post IVA stuff n mods n upgrades, Suggestions please?

    My quick release helps me to get in and out with my half hood on as I don’t have the easy in /out zips.

    According to the advert., it was a 1989 kit, but only registered in 1995, so maybe that explains the vin?

    I've got the grandad zips n my half hood, so can't comment on access with hood up. But removable wheel gives me peace of mind when parked up (particularly overnight) when off touring. As others have said, don't tend to remove the wheel for "normal" getting in/out, and don't remove it as much as I thought I might! Just my thoughts.

    Post IVA stuff n mods n upgrades, Suggestions please?

    I’ve got a qr steering wheel and tbh have seldom had it off, even when getting in and out with the doors / roof on but the I am vertically challenged and have the easy entry zips on the half hood if no zips then yes it would make life easier but getting in and out with the weather gear on is never going to be Elegant

    Stoneleigh 2019, R U going?

    Would love to, as it would have been to first trip with the car actually functioning. I'm getting married on the Sat however, and the wife-to-be has already made it clear that b*******ing off to a kit car show the day after would be 'frowned upon'!

    It's not that much work to get the engine in to be honest................. it's just the rest of the bits to make it work
  23. Do you have any pictures of this finished with the AIM unit installed. I have been toying with the idea of fitting one of these in black.

    Yeah, will be there for the weekend!

    I'm sorry Terry but I thought the 'getmecoat' smiley would hint at my being not entirely serious! I fully appreciate that chassis are made for particular power units and that a BEC chassis is likely to be very different from a chassis that has a Pinto in it.

    Sorry - dashboard is still off as I try to sort the multi-coloured spaghetti behind it... Looks like the weather will be kind too

    I'd echo this as well, I actually pointed out items I had changed or modified and why I had done so.
