Perfect! Thank you, Jo, they’re the next challenge for my model. I’ve put the rail in for them already!

I didn’t think so, but they are a common retrofit and I would quite like them on mine :wink:

OTS sun visors

Afternoon all Although I have found some lovely images for S1 OTSs with sun visors and I'm happy with the general profile of them, would somebody be able to provide me with the accurate dimensions of their sun visors please? I would like to get my 1:8 scale versions as good as I can for my model! Th...

Re: inside jaguar. xkss

I for one enjoyed the programme. Mark Evans was always slightly nuts beforehand (cf. a Car is Reborn, not that I mind!) but seemed a lot calmer on this one. I guess television moves on. The whole thing seemed (slightly) less pretentious than the LWE programme, where they were fussing over minor pain...

High Peak Run 2019

Posting here because nobody ever seems to look at the "Meet and Greet" section, and Angus got away with his post here too :wink: :wink: This year's High Peak Run - Sunday 4th August - sees us starting at the Grouse and Claret, just off the A6 in Rowsley, near Chatsworth (DE4 2EB). Please arrive at 1...

Thanks to Angus and the team for a lovely morning out. Sorry we had to shoot a little early, but it was great to see some proper motors instead of messing around with the abominations I usually bang on about :wink: Great to catch up with some familiar and no-so-familiar faces alike.

All ready to go and very much looking forward to tomorrow :) Spent the entire day (no exaggeration) spring cleaning and detailing the Colt (wheels off, but no before and after shots :wink: ) but happy to consign it to round the back for the sake of photos! http://i.imgur.com/5A2AN9r.jpg http://i.img...

Re: Anyone started to use their e-types yet?

Try being here in Bristol, they're an absolute nightmare Cutting in front of pedestrians, going for gaps in crowds that really don't exist, generally being rude or riding at you on the pavement. As Martin Brundle would say, "he's driving into a disappearing wedge" and it only ends badly. You regular...

Re: I must be getting old!

Hi Steve, he will not like it one bit, especially as an ex-traffic Bobby with a class 1 advanced license - he does remind my sister and I that we “don’t know how to drive” from time to time, and that one day he will “teach us how to drive properly” ! :bigrin: :lol:

I must be getting old!

Car insurance renewal time for the Colt, and I was surprised at my premium. Always had my parents on the policy as they do drive the car from time to time, and it lowers the price a little. Took my Dad off this time as according to my insurer “it’s more of a risk wth him on now, because you’re getti...

Nice to see everyone's cars out again, Richard got the FHC out the other day - I'd been at home for a few days and sod's law it was the day I was leaving for Bristol!

Re: Hello all, young Etype owner joining the club :)

Welcome, Thim! Amazing job, and great to have another young E-Type enthusiast on board (there's Steve Foden, who restored a lovely 4.2 OTS with his Dad a while back) and me knocking around here from time-to-time. I'm almost 24 and certainly nowhere near acquiring an E-Type. I would love to get bette...

Re: Personalised number plates

It’s an interesting school of thought. With classic cars, I do prefer to see them on their original or age-related number plates, partly because that’s what they should be on and it completes the look of the car. “ Modern” cars tend to lend themselves better to being personalised... or am I just use...

Re: Personalised number plates

I'm clearly far too compliant, Steve! My Dad was a police officer - I probably don't have excuses. Consistency makes for a nice display too. (Note to self: get a new picture with the Colt on!)

Re: Personalised number plates

My personalised plate is spaced correctly, and with 5 digits rather than 6 (prefix style plate) on a plain background (aside from the supplier’s details and BS mark) I think it looks just fine. Feel free to disagree :wink: But then I guess it depends on what you’re trying to say with your plate! Con...
