Re: Very nice twist on the pepper pots .

Obviously you can get 15" pepperpot-style wheels, but they don't look quite right. What we need is an exact copy of the design of the 13" versions. .

Re: Very nice twist on the pepper pots .

Very nice, but if I'm honest I prefer the original look.

Re: Dislok

Yet another vote for Disklock here. What I've found with the small size Disklock is that the fit is just a smidgen too loose on the 2.8 steering wheel. The simple solution is to run a thin layer of foam around the perimeter to pad it out a bit. As Andy says, you don't a really tight fit as I think t...

Re: Janspeed Exhausts

On another note did Janspeed ever make a single Pinto system ?? I dont recall this ? I guess they must have in the past: http://www.burtonpower.com/janspeed-stainless-steel-system-capri-1-6-2-0-sohc-ss639.html Part number (exhaust) SS639 (manifold) EM321. I imagine the manifold was mild steel, the ...

That's why it's best to go with recommendations. I my opinion you just can't take chances when it comes to paintwork.
Martin once told me that his paint man is very particular and the jobs are completed to a very high standard.

Re: Fish net head rests

Hi Jason,
Are you planning on converting normal headrests to fishnets? That sounds like an interesting project.

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

I wonder if they are real buyers at all or just random people to make the shows :? If they were looking for genuine buyers, I think they should have advertised in Autotrader magazine or something, not on a casting website. https://www.backstage.com/casting/modern-wheels-or-classic-steals-229211/ Th...

That's who I was thinking of. :doh:
It looks like a custom built stainless is going to be the only option for the future. That or a Sportex.

Dunno, but for once Elo seemed to have listened to the brief. The Corvette sounded nice.

Do you think they vet the potential buyers to make sure they're not timewasters or dreamers? I don't think they do....

Someone has said they are still available, so who knows :doh: Wll keep you updated :) Burton list them as unavailable and the Ebay seller that always had them (something or other racing, if I remember correctly) now don't list them. In fact, I've searched and can't find any suppliers that currently...

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

Thanks for the heads up, Andy. Part 2 of series 12 are all the UK ones I think. The USA episodes are alright, but it just isn't the classic Wheeler Dealers as we know it, in my opinion. Andrew. I haven't seen Tim from Car SOS do much presenting of other programmes on TV, but he's on Channel 5 presen...

That's a disappointment as it was always my plan to get a Janspeed once my Sportex gave up the ghost.
