Re: Who's on the road (or could be), who is Not?

Mines still on the road. I started an instagram account for it to try to build up my own enthusiasm for the car, it's doing pretty well and has certainly helped motivate me.

Re: Who's on the road (or could be), who is Not?

Wanted: monza seat squab

Howdy, I'm after a pair of seat squabs for the Monza 16v front seats (Monza being the earlier stripy fabric). I need the seat back section of the chair, ie the upper.

Re: Lets see your valvers!

Awesome Jay!

My brother and I bought our white one to turn into a track toy.
Hasn't made it there yet, currently unregistered.

Having dreams about putting an XU10 in there with an XU9 crank to up the compression.
Probably shouldn't as it's running at the moment!

What are the plans for yours?

Re: New member with racecar!

Did you have it put on professionally? That piece along the bottom of the front wing looks quite tricky to apply.

Thats what my hose looks like.

Your inlet manifold looks quite far forward? May just be the angle.

I've got around 10,000 Km's on these hoses. No drama's at all.

Re: Silicone water hoses for the BX valver

It might be the replacement hose that you're missing. If you have two elbows then you've got enough of them.

Re: Silicone water hoses for the BX valver

Thanks for the update Michael. I've just had mine out, the whole dash actually, swapped it for one from a spare car that had much less cracks. Did you fix your oil pressure gauge? Usually it's the sender.
