    I like what youb did with the chrome swish strip... i hadnt seen that before

    With the minilit wheels blacked out and a pretty ring around the wheel that little chrome swish gives it a nice balance

    As to the hill....uuuooohhh i wouldnt walk to far away. My town os built on a hill, so i ALWAYS Turn my wheels into the curbs and carry 2 wedge shaped rocks (just in case i lose one) to ...

    Sorry for the delay. I'll do my best to answer.

    Because it was a maddening problem that lasted years I was resigned to thinking the lump would have to be pulled and everything checked.

    I don't remember the brand of A/F this gentleman had but it went into the exhaust pipe. We went for a run and looked at the graph which showed the issue. I put in multiple needles with the same issue.<...

    Paul - Your explaination of what's in that condenser (old English for capacitor) is obviously correct. Dedicated Capacitor readers are quite expensive and not necessary for casual user. I can pulse them and get different reading across 4 different condensers. I wonder what the +/- tolerance is and if that's the reason people are having issues.

    Bruce - If its ok with Peter, here's the ultra...

    Just got an email from Peter. He is not making these any more due to time constraints. Said they are easy to make, but did not give any details.

    Any of the electrical smart folks know how to make these?

    just to add a little (very little) to THAT debate

    (Beautiful photos Oggers)

    Coming home from a race, Mid June in France one year, I found that having the 'railing' at the back did stop stuff falling of at a reasonably modest velocity

    If the actual rack was prevented from hitting the road itself

    Mine decided that the stupid hooks on the bootlid were not any kind of creat...

    The barn was not kind to the interior. All the chrome is corroded away, and the plastic and vinyl has disintegrated.
    Be well,
    David.

  • MAndrus26 March 2017

    Why does it need a new interior with only 26K on it?

    Nice find, BTW. That's a fun car to toss into corners.

    I start with a short octagonal spanner and weld a 1.5 metre bar to the handle. That removes all necessity nor hammers and it works a treat.
