What are you all going to do when ethanol is blended with petrol in greater quantity.
Surely you mean "we"
I wonder whether it would be worth our powder and shot to soak typical seals in the various fuels, to examine over time the damage done ?

Re: Young enthusiast Bangers and Cash

My other hobby, Amateur radio was at one point all home brew. When the older hams (I am a sprightly 63) bemoan the fact that fewer people make their own radio equipment, I like to ask if they drive, invariably the answer is yes, when of course I ask if they maintain the car themselves I am usually g...

Bought today. Doesn’t take off chunks of paintwork like the triangular council type clamp did.

Re: Wheel clamp

I use a disklok for security.
I dont know if there is an advantage over one of these.
Both would be better, but its where to stop isnt it ?
Anything that makes the little toe rags shove off.
I have been meaning to get a good old fashioned battery terminal lock as well.

Re: How many tools is enough?

You put your ratchet in one end and attach a socket to the other.
I once needed to get at a gearbox mounting bolt and simply could not get in up against a bulkhead.
With this I snapped a socket on and drove it from the other end, it is very simply a toothed belt drive in a nice housing Phil.

Re: How many tools is enough?

My problem is, just when I think I dont need anything else, someone invents something that "will come in handy even if it never gets used"

Re: carpets

My feelings are they are much of a muchness when considering the pile. I think from fitting mine that one key point is to fit underlay of some sort for a little noise damping and also to give a plusher feeling under the feet. One area of concern to me was when I came to fit the centre consul carpet,...

Re: Disc brakes

I would have thought if a 1275 or otherwise quick engine was fitted then discs may be a good idea. I cant recall who, but someone a while ago mentioned that there are fewer original minors on the road these days. I built a car once, a kit based on a cobra design, with Ital pedal box, rover v8 engine...

Re: lost my motivation

Speaking from experience, when people asked me how long it took to build a certain kit car, I replied 6 months, then 6 months off then another 6 months.
Without the break I would have just gotten fed up, taking a break is a great idea.
