Re: Building a Realm C type

Steve, good new not having it as a Q plate as this would ruin it. I thought it was based on a new space frame chassis. Look forward to the rebuild and final result.

Re: After market LED lights. Legal UK?

As our cars do not need an mot, do they need to comply with the mot. Not saying it is a good idea not to comply but are you breaking any mot rules if you do not need one. It must be better and safer to have good lighting thean complying with a regulation that may not apply anyway. This is more a que...

Have you tried driving it around and taking some sharp turns to maybe movie the luggage around if it is trapped in the hinges. Might work?

Re: Sweating Brake Fluid Hose

I have now had my car for over 8 years and have not had a problem so far on sweating or leaking hoses. I have never changed the fluid or needed to top it up. I am not sure what fluid is in the system or what dot has been used. Christopher did suggest I put a sample on some metal to see if it reacted...

Re: Airbox or Ram Pipes

Depends if you want a quiet or a noisy E Type. Induction noise cAn become very tiring on a long journey. I like my E Type quiet. The air box has to be better than a mesh or a sock and the car runs better when it is receiving cool air rather than hot engine air. I suppose if you have a highly tuned e...
