It has a Rover engine at least

Spotted this on Facebook, no connection to me. Just made me smile finding out it has a Rover V8 in it. :) My dad did something similar 25 years ago. https://i.postimg.cc/5XBW1cng/Screenshot-20190522-230425.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/nCQtR9m6/Screenshot-20190522-230440.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/87QgqkBs...

Re: Thunderbird 2 & The Green Machine

I always hated bleeding clutches on 800s.

I tried all the proper ways, the best results I had were always repeated fast pumping of the pedal and locking off the bleed nipple when I thought I'd seen the last of the air. Lots of wasted fluid but always better pressure/feel than the proper ways IMO.

Re: Jeep talk

The ARB arrived yesterday and I've fitted it today. Easy job aside rusty bolts. Definitely better, now wondering whether to upgrade the front. Waiting on a response from the experts. Spot the difference, the old could be moved by hand which shows how weak it is. https://i.postimg.cc/VJhy7P8H/IMG-201...

You've done well not to bend the pipes.

Like anything, it's easy with practice. :D

Re: Lancaster insurance

Good to know.

I haven't made my mind up which way I'm going yet.

I've been getting quotes of £140-190 for a lot of early 90s cars.

The outcome of the ARB being fitted today will play a part in what I decide to do.

Lancaster insurance

Anyone with them?

I have a potential plan in mind and have had very cheap quotes with them.

Just wanted to see if anyone was using them and what they thought?

Re: Manalishis 820 Vitesse Coupe

Up to you is the answer.

No issues with MOT over there if you remove it?

I did it several times when fitting after market steering wheels. I once even went so far as to change the glass so the little logos weren't present to know SRS had ever been fitted.

I think I might be mistaken. Just a random thought in my head. :)

Re: Manalishis 820 Vitesse Coupe

It has been quite a while since I last took one out so I'm having to think a bit.

7 years now since my last cars went. So a little while before that since I last did a dash swap. Sometime in 2010 or 2011 probably.

Re: Manalishis 820 Vitesse Coupe

From memory you don't need to touch any of those little screws/bolts. Have you removed the ones on the ends behind the caps? The centre bolts are behind where the stereo wiring is. Making sure all the doors seals are out the way and possible even removing the A pillar trims is a good idea as not to ...

Re: Manalishis 820 Vitesse Coupe

Both these pics are from late model 820s, can't find any pics of early MK2s to compare. I must have deleted them at some point

Re: Jeep talk

No demand for them then?
