  1. Re: Stoneleigh confirmed for Sat and Sunday 28th and 29th August (Bank Hol)

    Now then Pete, that's a bit of a coincidence cos I was just about to go and check on whether they'd updated the website yet - and they have, so we have to assume it'll be going ahead. The venue...

    Re: Ultimate replica

    If I had a 246 Dino I'd be massively upping security around the garage and keeping the V5 in a safety deposit box.... ;)

    Re: Ultimate replica

    Congratulations to Gerry for getting this almost over the line. Always good to have yet another alternative! So there are now three options for those in the market for a Stratos replica, and...

    Re: Pirelli Hawk for Sale

    "May take cheaper p/ex"....Cosworth, Metro 6R4, 911RS?? Er, good luck with that :)

    Re: EU Parcels and Tax ID

    The only "National ID" I can think of is your National Insurance number, but why they'd need that is a mystery.

    Alternative would be to get it sent to a friend who has a company and bypass the...

    Re: Steering Wheel Shimmy

    I think part of the problem is that on an enthusiasts' forum like this, you come across all types of bores, so you tend to let a lot of stuff slide past.... And yes I include myself in that...

    Re: Steering Wheel Shimmy

    So basically, the wheels were off-centre to the hubs which caused the vibration. I'm sure I've come across cars without a hub spigot though, although I can't remember which ones...as you say, you'd...

    Re: Steering Wheel Shimmy

    So what you're saying, if I understand it correctly, is that the mating surface of the inside of the wheel that contacts the hub must be the same size as the hub mating surface, or you get shimmy....

    Re: Pirelli Hawk for Sale

    Very tasty car - my fave of the Corvettes. Would yours have to be the split window one? Biiig money.....!

    You'll have to satisfy my curiosity, though. If you've never wanted any sort of Stratos,...

    Interestingly, the car that's the subject of this "discussion" hasn't reappeared on Ebay, but is now on Car & Classic as a private sale in Preston at 82500. Ad wording is still pretty much the same,...

    Hi Mark, and welcome to the club! Given that LB aren't currently taking orders, it's a good time to do your research - have a look at the build threads on here and don't be afraid to ask questions...

    Re: Pirelli Hawk for Sale

    Provenance can have a big effect on the price of just about anything. Therefore I'm confident that, as soon as the ink's dry on my car's V5 with my name on it, its value will drop approx 40% :)

    Re: Set of X1/9 targa catches

    I meant the different bodies used on the kits. The rear catches are "higher up" on the Gp 4's so might need different blocks?

    Re: Set of X1/9 targa catches

    But remember the different bodies used over the years and the subtle (and maybe not so subtle) difference in shape of the clams. Plus different positioning for Stradale and the Group 4's. And Hawk...

    Correctamundo, Chris. You'll still need to sort your own spacer blocks to go between the catches and the body though.

    Good news, Ste. Now you can get on with your house stuff, and hopefully get back in a Strat at a future date!
