Re: What a Waste!

It looks like it's full of junk but doesn't look beyond redemption. Bit of grot on the roof hinge but sills and arches look OK. Looks like someone has cut the rear wash jet out and welded a flat patch over it which is odd! Always a shame to see cars in this state but I think that's because we like ...

You aren't wrong! Just did the maths, if you went and ordered one of everything off that list, it would set you back £3.65, basically the cost of a pint almost exactly!

Re: The Ace Cafe Capri Day 2018

Less than a week to go! I must admit I have left Calvin to do the organising this year due to an ongoing situation. Hopefully this will come out as well, but can I get some feedback please at somepoint for how you felt this years event went? Calvin is not the organising type really so I would like ...

Re: Laser + GL

Very nice! They do indeed look gorgeous. 8-) The white lettering on the tyres looks like it was factory applied. Incredibly neat! You'll have to be extremely careful around kerbs now.... Andrew.

Re: Laser + GL

Thanks John, I've had a quick look and does look a decent option! Only thing that worries me is that is says it won't fit with the standard servo in place... Also for an extra £25 I can get a custom made one that will fit around the servo so personally I'd rather play it safe... Great find though, I...

Re: 1.6 laser brake upgrade

Jeez guys give the guy a brake ( ;) ). It's an m16 calliper still, just vented and spaced, he's not fitting an m16 machine gun to the bonnet. Believe it or not, not everyone sees 40 year old technology as a foolproof masterpiece. Things have moved on. Modern cars have bigger calipers and discs for ...

But be warned they can somehow sap power as I found on my Impreza, but that had the rear box only.

:goodluck: with yours!

It's only right that it's been restored in it's original colour, but if I could buy an RS, a white one wouldn't be my first choice.

Andrew.


That is gorgeous, white isn't my personal favourite either but I still wouldn't turn it down! :heart:

Accordingly to google the current average price of fuel...

petrol - 128.4
Diesel -131.6
Super Unleaded - 139.3
Premium Diesel 145.6

Not sure how accurate that is or how they figure it out mind

Re: Stainless Steel exhaust manifold for Pintos

I was watching that thread with interest, though ceramic coating doesn't come with a lifetime warranty/guarantee (most places are offering between 1-2years) like I'd expect a S/S exhaust to have and the cost probably isn't too dis-similar. A quick google reckons that it is between £150-300 just for ...

Re: Stainless Steel exhaust manifold for Pintos

I'm looking into it because my original cast manifold rusted away, so I got a sportex, which rusted from the inside after 4/5 years so want a longer term solution really :)
