    Rich's S2000 Build

    It’s good to see so many passes, almost certainly due to the quality of the information on the forum.

    Rich's S2000 Build

    Yes, those were the comments made to me at the Bristol test centre.

    Is a Heater an IVA requirement

    I bought a small 3.5kw unit from Rally Design. Single speed but works OK.

    o/t picture cleaning

    Sotherby’s Fine Art Department on: +44 (0) 20 7293 5000 They might be expensive but make them an offer. A local art group, auction house, may know someone.

    Room with a view....

    It looks a little lonely. I like the way you painted “Keep Clear” on the next parking spot, very protective.

    Ride Height Sorted

    Now I'm on the road I thought I had better fine tune the ride height, now set at 145mm front and 165mm rear. Spent some time with the scales and pleased that "my cellar" contains enough booze to accurately simulate driver and passenger weights. Champagne works well as the bottles are so heavy. Posh stuff hidden in the foot-wells, so the spread of weight not perfect. Time for another booze cruise to Calais.

    FW SE Zetec Build 2018

    I used the Gunson and found it worked really well. I also used the "wooden rod wedged on the brake pedal overnight" technique as suggested on this forum. I was quite skeptical but it did appear to move air towards the bleed nipples.

    Small oil residue

    Agree with AdamR but you could give it a good clean, take a careful drive, and then see if you get any new oil. Be a good idea to check oil levels first.

    I'm back and with a story

    We visited Thiepval a couple of years ago and the enormity of it takes your breath away.

    Thames Valley Meet

    DVLA and postman have not been swift for me so tintop tomorrow. To be fair to DVLA they did say possibly Saturday but probably Monday.

    Thames Valley Meet

    If my DVLA paperwork arrives on Saturday as promised I’ll be there in the Westfield, otherwise the tintop and then first drive on Monday. Short delay as Simon at WF had to prove to DVLA that the gearbox had been refurbished to “new” condition. It’s definitely worth ringing DVLA to answer questions as long as you can put up with the endless press 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5.

    MG Midget or AH Sprite

    Good luck. I’m not helpful either sold my AH in 1972 and my MG in 1977. What about the MG Migdet club, they may know of one.

    FW Special Build Thread by Complete Novices

    Just sheet material from eBay, check that your rollbar bolts are not too high. I replaced my caphead bolts with high tensile hex to gain clearance. You will see the Westfield ones are profiled to gain bolt head clearance. My rollbar is the RAC version.

    My forms went in on the 22nd of June and my IVA date was the 8th of August. These are my rollbar covers, made from carbon look alike plastic. Good luck.
