Re: roll on indian summer

Wishful thinking, I’ve closed 90% of my pools for the winter. I don’t expect any balmy weather until early April.

Though I agree they would be unlikely to go through the work required to change all the glass if they intended to sell the car as a runner.
There's no need, they just etch over the original etching, or lightly grind it.

Re: Metro twin downpipe

It might be worth speaking to Maniflow, they may well have been the manufacture of the Minor version of the part that you’re looking for. They were certainly the manufacturer of the twin downpipe part that was sold for the Metro. They make all their stuff to order so they’d still have the jig. https...

Re: A plea to restore valuable restoration threads

I agree. There’s a huge amount of useful information here, but equally there are lots of broken links which is frustrating when you think you’re about to be linked to a thread that will answer your question.

Heavy duty clutch

I’ve had a search but I can’t find a definitive answer to this. What clutch assembly is suitable for the 1098 block, 1098 flywheel (albeit a bit lighter) and ribbed gearbox with say 90bhp? All the answers that I’ve found involve 1275 blocks with the associated flywheel, which involves modifying the ...

Re: LED bulbs anyone?

Thanks Geo, I’ll take a look.

Tried to get some pics of the side/brake led lights. Even taking into account the limitations of a phone camera, this is the difference. Brake and side, then side on its own.

Edited to correct typo.

Re: LED bulbs anyone?

The P36D seems to be the equivalent in LED. classiccarleds.co.uk seem to have the type on hold as they say they cannot get good enough quality items produced. That’s right, I spoke to them about it a couple of weeks ago, they don’t have an eta at the moment. It’s a shame as I’d like some for my Luc...

Re: LED bulbs anyone?

I'll see if I can get you some worthwhile images of the bulbs that I've fitted. There's certainly a very noticeable difference between side light and brake light brightness. Also have a read of this, it explains why you shouldn't use white led bulbs behind coloured lenses. https://www.classiccarleds...

Standard and V Power both have the E5 logo on the pump so I guess they’re the same?

Re: LED bulbs anyone?

Regarding the blue tinted sidelight bulbs, bulbs that look the same as original are available from the website that I linked to.
