  1. Coolers & Pipework Installation

    Started on the installation of the cooling system. The original design has been changed after several good emails with other members of the forum. I originally had one electric pump in the return line to the radator and one in the feed to the engine, mainly as this gave a nice clean installation.

  4. Thermostat Housing Installed

    As mentioned at the AGM it was recommended by myself that it would be good if members started using the blogs for the build history - So I will lead by example and now start adding the build record. Any interesting info will remain in the forum threads..................

  5. Uprated Lower Ball Joint

    While looking for various components on the suspension I have purchased the following Lower Ball Joint from Race Tech Direct who are specialist TVR dealers. After reading various articles are forums it became clear that some of the TVR's used this item as standard. There had been a couple of failures due to people installing cheap items.

    Below are the details from the supplier and their details on the web page if anybody else is interested. Retail price is 48 + VAT.
