Re: Using the FHC

I'm loving some of the responses here. Two of your sister's best mats in the back? Enough said really :wink: :lol: And yes Mark, you'd be absolutely spot on, it is from an RV7

Using the FHC

Richard sent me this picture which made me chuckle.

Squeezing the engine frames from his light aircraft in the back of the FHC - they've been off for welding and painting.

Couldn't do that with an OTS! :lol:

Re: Breakfast Meeting - Sunday 1st September

A few photos from last Sunday's event Once again we had a fabulous turnout for breakfast - 20 E-types and the lovely XJS invading an otherwise peaceful Derbyshire village. Difficult to get them all in the same shot, but we did have 20 at one point! We had a lovely mix colours and series again as wel...

Re: Local fete.

Hi Robbie I suppose that’s one way of putting it - I hope I retain reasonable levels of enthusiasm for a few more years yet! Crowdfunding? I wouldn’t say no to that :lol: After me dithering and saying I’m not coming to Tissington - I now am :bigrin: decided to come up to glorious Derbyshire for the ...

Re: Local fete.

Some interesting points Stu, and I’m merely promoting discussion. Richard’s 3.8 - despite being as original as reasonably possible, is not without its modifications. New style repro radiator, 5 speed gearbox, Fosseway braking system, the list goes on. Similarly, John Darvell’s (V12 Epyte) has a stun...

Re: Local fete.

Surely I'm not the only one wondering about the unregistered S1 with a variety of "obvious" errors - did they keep the bonnet down throughout the show? :scratchheadyellow:

Re: V12 Engine man

If other avenues fail, I could recommend having a word with Paul Brown (of Paul Brown Classic Jaguar) - he knows E-types inside out and always seems to have a few V12s on the go. The only thing is that he's not particularly local as he's in Ripley, Derbyshire. I have his mobile number which I can se...

Re: Colour

I did get one more shot of the OTS - it was on the E-Type Club Weekend way back in 2015 now. It does seem to have something about it!

Re: Colour

Paint codes aside Bob, it looks particularly nice with the dark blue hood - you don't see many coloured hoods out and about. I once saw a gunmetal OTS with an oxblood interior and dark red hood. Wow!

Hi Steve All going well thank you! Busy, but then we all are and I wouldn't have it any other way. I know I tend to just disappear off posts for a while - but I am reading them! :lol: I'm a firm believer of only contributing meaningful posts, given my lack of E-type! Good point!

Re: RIP Andrew Waugh

Very sad indeed, my condolences to his family also. You are correct - he lived in a lovely little village called Eglisau, on the way towards the Rheinfalls in Schaffhausen if you head from the Zurich direction. We had a few conversations about meeting up over the course of my year in Basel but never...

Re: 4.2 seats and hood cover

Hi Chris Although I may be a young enthusiast, I do prefer originality. Certainly that is the case for this model anyway. I do want it to look as close to the original thing as possible. Not really in to these restomod things! If you don't mind, I might wait to see if anyone else has a slightly newe...

4.2 seats and hood cover

Morning all Bit of a specific question - but does anyone have a set of trimmed 4.2 seats which are out of the car that I could take some pictures of, please? The plan for my OTS model is to get a 3D model made from loads of pictures, which I can then use to 3D print a set of seats for my model. The ...

In the words of Richard ('s email): Following on from a most enjoyable day out on our High Peak Run, we have decided to hold another small event this year; our intention is to have a breakfast meeting in the beautiful village of Tissington, Derbyshire on Sunday 1st September. This will be an informa...

Re: High Peak Run 2019

Thank you all for your kind words - I feel that we were particularly lucky with the weather. Richard and I got caught out in a short, sharp downpour on the return leg from the Barrel, but then again we didn't leave there until at least 6. I do try and make our runs good fun - just a bunch of nice pe...

Re: High Peak Run 2019

Hi Robbie

Sorry to hear that you couldn't make it again. I will send you a copy of this year's route once it's all ready to go, so that you can have a go in your own time anyway.

See you again soon

Re: High Peak Run 2019

Dear All

We now have 14 cars booked on from the E-type Club, plus ca. 6-10 from our local restorer (Paul Brown) likely to attend as well. Should be a good turnout

If anyone is still interested in joining us, then let me know!
