Re: Recaro badges

Hi, Reattaching them with any great success could be difficult. You could always try gluing them in position if you don't fancy forking out for replacements. Andrew. Not a bad shout, rather than pull the pins out and try gluing them back on then pushing it in, just glue the badges straight onto the...

Re: 280 for very reluctant sale

Such a shame to see you sell up! Understand your reasons and I think I'm more disappointed that I don't have the space to relieve you of the car! Whoever does buy it will be very happy I'm sure, having seen it in the flesh it looks fantastic. If I manage to discover there is an empty garage I can st...

Re: £15000 laser on eBay

:shock: Considering that there is a lovely "one owner" 2.8I for £18k and also a nice black 3.0S (imported from Ireland) for £14k, I think I'd have to seriously question why someone would pay £15k for what I think we all have to admit will be less desirable, mainly because of the engine siz...

Solved it! Turns out in my own ineptitude I labelled up the wires wrong so once I found the right ones and wired them in it all worked as it should

Yep!! I thought the exact same thing, checked the fuse and it's fine, and still powers the original one!

Re: Laser + GL

So it's back! New cam and carbs make a massive difference (when they work as they should!) Was running a bit lumpy after I got the car back so before I got it rolling-roaded I have fitted an Aldon ignition kit after a few of you guys on here mentioned how good it was. Massive shout out to Paul G who...

Re: Aftermarket stereo/standard wires

Cheers Andrew, No I haven't tested with a multimeter, but it still powers the original radio which I was using as my measure to see if it still worked or not. When I wired that one up it came on, held stations if programmed and did what it was meant to do My plan was to use a piggyback clip to conne...

Aftermarket stereo/standard wires

Hey all, So I have an after market radio hidden in my glove box to keep the original radio in place and looking the part, but for the last period of time it has had a direct wire straight to the battery with no fuse in line. So today I thought I would be slightly more sensible and do the job properl...

Re: Antifteeze

Unless your expansion tank is also full to the brim, I can't think of any reason why its coming out of the top of the rad, apart from the suggestions Nick has already made... Sounds like a loose rad cap to me as well, if not then check the rest of Nick's suggestions and if it still happens let us kn...

Re: flasher relay

Did you check the earth itself? If you wiggled the earth wire and it worked I would've thought that the earth connection was crap and to fix that rather than replacing the whole relay?

Rev Counter not Working

Hi guys, mentioned last week about the rev counter not working since I changed the carb over fro a 34 IHC to a 32/36 and everyone said that there was a spare wire somewhere that goes straight to the coil, but as per my pictures below I can't find any spare/loose wires at all? Help please! Thanks htt...
