a video of last weeks weymouth car meet has been uploaded to youtube by a local lad and has captured some decent footage of my moon plus amongst other classics, the cars are the 2nd half of the video. hes done a bloody good job if i say so myself at making it look great. link here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=9pDn_3hK_Gc
I have just renewed with FJ for the sixth year but also included the Barchetta into the policy. Coupe now after some checking and reviewing had a agreed value upped 50% from last year after getting the bodywork done basis present market values of restored examples and as the B is under resto and being the super rare Riviera had an agreed value placed the same as the coupe last year for £231 for both cars, both agreed values, RAC and full salvage rights, both garaged, both on limited 3000 miles a year.
I checked with others commonly known and they do not compare in my opinion.
My coupe is going to be in need of a couple of new tyres on the rear. I'm no speed merchant nor will I be doing any track days. Does anyone have either Kumho or Nexen tyres on their car? If so, what are your thoughts about them?
Nexen N8000 on all four corners. Never looked back on the horrific Falkens before. Tread pattern similar to Conti Contact Sport. Had them on for circa 2000 miles and been great in damp / wet and dry conditions. Cannot recommend them enough.
hey man, sounds good, speaking of wheels, im not a fan of my 20vt plus 8 spoke wheels. ive heard they crack between/at the spokes. i was parked up at my local classic car meet just along from a gtv6 spider with its chrome inlet plenum on full show. really is a striking design from alfa. special and striking.
There is only a very small difference in sound. The one with a single silencer is slightly louder but not much. The sound is deeper though. I think this is why other car alarms sometimes go off. I cannot do a video comparison for you as I am doing some refurbishment work on one car right now.
also, before trying to start, take the filter off let some air get into the engine properly, when its up n running put it back on, uh, unplug the inejctors or pull the fuse/relay for them or the fuel pump - chuck some cheap oil in (this will take all the shit out after cranking to build oil pressure) then as just stated crank it over to get oil back into the galleries then drain it, then again chuck more cheap oil in but leave the plug OFF and leave it to flush straight out the bottom. this is what i would do anyway. aswell as what i said earlier.
Wow, 3 months since the last spot in the South East?! Red 20vt S*** DKO heading SW on M3 near Basingstoke-ish just after 7pm yesterday
Actually Dave, I saw a V plate red 20vt on the m25 j12 - 14 a couple of weeks back. I was in the discovery, waved at driver who probably thought I was as insane as whoever had done the lower rear nearside quarterpanel repairs on his car .....
