Does anyone know what the right oil is to put in an 1800 silver top?

5w30 for normal use, 5w40 for track.

It’s alive!!!!! The heart beats again    

So I am not far off the IVA. It's been a longer journey than expected but I can't be disappointed. As they say it's the journey, not the destination. Working on ASP000 has been a really rewarding lear

So I couldn’t get a video but we just did the first drive around the car park. What can I say other than two boys and a dad with grins from ear to ear.    We even managed a few power slides.

Does anyone have drain holes in under their seats. Was thinking of putting some in?

Yep. The big hole in the top, lets plenty of water in! I've got holes in the front corners of each lowered steel floor.

I just drilled 10mm holes in the corners of each lowered floor and footwell 
 

I did have a “moment” as I drilled the last one (the day prior to getting a ferry to the Alps) - I suddenly thought “hang on, aren’t the fuel lines somewhere under here...” 

 

Missed by about 5mm 😳

Just the hole. They get covered in stones with use, so get poked through with a rivet when I was the car.

I found out the hard way that drainage holes are a good idea.

The cycle wings don’t need trim do they? Wasn’t planning any on mine anyway. They are thick enough and have nice radiused returns. I get that the thin plastic or carbon ones might though, depending on how the edges are done.

 

Anyone??

Only if they have an edge, if it has a radiused return then should be fine as at the last iva the examiner just felt my swept wings and rear wings for the rounded return edge

That was my understanding too - thanks for the confirmation. I'll take my chances as it is, but don't let me put you off using it if you want to @Paul Aspden The 2nd !

Thanks all. I check the edges and the radius is above 3m on the wings so will chance it.
