Re: Open Day April 2019

Me too, thanks Angus and team.

The cars that came were stunning examples in different ways. I felt so ashamed of my car being so dirty that I washed it when I got home and polished the back half before the missus found me and made me do some “useful” jobs.

Re: MOT exempt certificate

Regarding christophers comments about re-taxing, I received the normal re-tax form with zero charge, go online and do it. I had the car MOT'd last year and will shortly do it again but didn't have to do anything about exemption? Regarding the ULEZ, I have great interest as I live just inside the Nor...

Re: New battery recommendation

Hi I've just replaced my Halfords battery with a new one. I let the old one drain too often but now have a trickle charger. I take the view that I'd rather have a working battery that has a three year guarantee and can be swapped out at any local Halfords if it goes wrong. My car is not a show winne...

Re: Dodgy coil?

Jeremy Two years ago Angus fitted a Pertronix to mine when he did the RHD conversion. I had misfiring problems that got worse when running at higher revs. Eventually couldn't get it over 3,000rpm. Took it to a rolling road, where he swapped the coil and got it to 4,000rpm without misfires, and prono...

Re: Insurance

Jerome

Your quote seems roughly in line with mine, given location and value, but I only get 5,000 miles/yr. This is enough right now but in the future who knows? Which insurer is RH, excuse my ignorance.

Morning all I know this is a topic that comes up fairly regularly but I was shocked to get a quote from Lancaster this week. I'm currently with Heritage, have a guaranteed value of £125k and a £100 excess. My renewal has just come in at £430, a reduction of £40 over last year. Most of the premium is...

Hi Marek

I have your original led reversing lights. Are you able to swap out those for the new ones, or do you need to replace the whole unit?

The bit that gave it away for me was when the Ferrari went partly on the grass and twitched a fair bit. It then carried on as if it hadn't happened. If that had been real cue one wreacked Ferrari :seeingstars:

Marek, who is active on this site, sells a conversion of the rear lights with led reversing lights built in. I have them and they are incredibly bright. Well worth an investment and a proven fitment.

Re: This does not feel right

In my forty years plus in business I can tell you that certain things never change. These include:- 1. As a unsecured creditor of a failed business, there is never a chance of seeing a penny back once the "administrator" or his advisors puts in their fees. 2. Most businesses that have assets do a pr...

Yves Whilst "American Football" is much rougher than "Football", it is played using around three tonnes of padding and around 40 players per team, who take it in turns to prance around for a while. It is a complete bastardisation of Rugby, where real men play. Having thrown in that particular hand g...
