Bob,
I too had this difficulty when installing the kit. But it is doable with patience and appropriate order. The wires for cyl 1+2 are indeed rather a bit short, hence need to be given priority. With time, the wires will also relax a bit. Let me know if you want some pics.
Cheers,

And that's with an S2 with obviously 6" rims. You can imagine how an S1 would look next-by. Earlier this year I enjoyed a very close look at the F, and can confirm that it is pretty tempting in many respects v/s other modern OTS models. You cannot miss the several design details that are straightfor...

Red Kite, that reminds me of my experience: I wanted to replace the standard non-locking cap having a screw vent, with a nice locking one. Same experience, it didn't fit. Had to trim down the mechanism and made it fit. But when I locked it would not unlock anymore. Simply twisted by hand it a bit to...

Triple SU S1-S2 compatibility

Hi, I have been proposed a triple SU set with the inlet manifold. It is coming out of a 3.8 S1, and seem to be in good shape. Since I am running with a 4.2 S2 (twin Strombergs), guess there could be some issues with the water connections. How difficult would this conversion be? Recommended or better...

I am quite tempted in attending this gathering, as the agenda for the spring starts filling up.
Are there other fellow listers joining?
Also, no mention found on possible places to stay for the night of saturday-sunday, guess we have to find our way.

On closer look, given the missing bits and pieces, seems to me obvious that the original title of this shell (surely a LHD, US import delivered in a 20' container) is now accompanying a running restored car.
Pete, the ebay item you indicate is stated to belong to a RHD.

Steve,
There seems to be a riveted aluminium id plate on the bulkhead, left side, close to where the electrical wires are emerging.
Wishing much courage and luck in your project!

ID plate stamping

Hi,
I have to fix a new identification plate on my car.
What are the different experiences around?
Shall I buy a stamping set and do it myself, or send a blank plate with details to someone to have it properly done?
Thanks in advance for your comments.

David, Not to say negative things, but rather being realistic and practical. While other suppliers have variable dispatch charges depending on weight/volume, they have a min charge for 5kg parcel to Belgium (?48 by UPS, ?42 expedited mail, or ?21.60 for upto 2kg by standard uninsured surface mail).....
