Thanks, this is great! I was wondering about the availability of parts worldwide, especially since I was thinking of laying my hands on one of these houses in Greece next year; but now that I know that there are alternatives, I feel better about my plans!

I was wondering, would there be a way to watch the races that happened at that event on youtube or on a group's facebook (or similar) page? Thanks in advance!

The best one can say about the first one is A for effort and being generally sinister, and the second one sounds as if it's been written by someone already affected by a notifiable condition

Experienced "a first" yesterday, Monday. Had my regular six monthly consultation with my GP over the phone.

My GP, a recent import from Scotland, phoned me at the appointed time to review some tests I had undertaken over the last few months and to renew my 6 monthly prescription for the one drug that he has me on.

All was good, as expected, and it was, "see you in six months time". He also thought it was great that I had a few bottles of Vino Rosso on hand to keep the cholesterol down in these troubled times.

With regret, BVAC has cancelled this event due to the ongoing uncertainty over Covid19.

It plans to hold it again on 6th June 2021.

If some one can try turning 2020 off , and on again, that would be great.

I spend most of 2019 worried about cancer and money, now I get to spend 2020 worried about COV19, money, and still cancer (not mine) Its been better than Joes year that's for sure however...

There are, but most of the good Coupes have already come to the UK, Malaysia is another country to try. Just Google "japan auction car europe" and you should find some hits, but beware, not all Coupes in Japan are RHD wink

Welding is a skill I wish I possessed Toby. cool
I'd still have my old 1965 998cc Cooper if I could! It never really needed a great amount of welding, but what it did mean I had to let it go. crazy
It's worth a fortune now. wink
All being well, we must try to have a meetup, post-C-19?

I found Mr Muscle oven cleaner (aerosol) is super to melt the rubber finish. Used on a couple of handbrake consoles to great effect. A word to the wise though - light coats of paint and many of them, spaced out. otherwise you get an elephant hide effect in a few weeks as it settles

Hi all, Awhile ago my dipstick read wrong and I overfilled my oil. Rookie mistake I'm aware, please don't be too harsh lol, It killed me.

Anyway I usually hear when taking off a turbo blow off in first but its the only gear I hear it in apart from the odd time in second. It also boosts alot stronger in first and second than a lot of the other gears.

Is this normal or should I be worried??

Thanks heaps all.

The FC chip was developed on my car, as it happens, so I'm glad it's seeing good use.

I'd certainly look at a lightened flywheel, but I'd also consider locking the balance shaft and removing the belt (which means you can also fit a wider cambelt for peace of mind). Both of those mods reduce the rotational inertia of the engine which will get you moving faster in low gears (and equally, lighter wheels).

The points made above about pounds per kW are correct; it's a lot easier to shove extra fuel through a turbo lump than an NA (where you're basically restricted to increasing revs, changing combustion chamber geometry, and changing the cam timing/lift). Beware if you're changing the exhaust - the four into two into one and the position of the catalyst all affect cylinder exhaust scavenging at different RPM. Equally, if you delete the airbox, you'll lose a resonant cavity that hangs off the front of it and significantly improves low speed torque.

Viva Italia had been brought forward one day, to Sunday 31st May, and combined with Supercar Sunday, as was the case a few years ago. However, the latest news is that the Dutch government said no events with more than 100 people before 1st June...so now it is cancelled frown Looks like all annual pilgrimages will be off this year...

...but a new date is possible later in the year...fingers crossed!

I had just taxed mine from the start of this month so I could get it to the Practical Classics show at the NEC. May put it back on SORN soon.

The X1/9 is still on SORN but from 1st April I will get it classed as a historic vehicle and get free tax. It was registered on 3rd January 1980 so very definitely made in 1979 thus over 40 years old.

Ah right I see. Are the PDF’s on the thread if there is one? I couldn’t see on either that I was looking at, which was removing centre console as one, the fixing pushed in dash buttons as a second?
