  1. Past hour
  2. I didn't know the earlier Spitfires had a different windscreen, apart from them being slightly lower I thought. The GT6 windscreen surround I understood was a bolt on affair but with bolts to the scuttle top rather than shafts through it ..so it comes out but undoing those bolts and sliding it forward. Only what I hear like, as I have no direct experience of the 6. Thanks for the offer of windscreen loan, that's very kind of you. Should I explore that route I might well like to take you up on it. I have driven a car extensively with just aeroscreens, and a motorcycle helmet for longer, colder journeys. Back in the day I've also used aeroscreens in lieu of a windscreen to get a car through an MOT where the car's wipers didn't work. I'm a bit soft for aeroscreens nowadays, and even have a windscreen on my old Sunbeam motorcycle. Arn and Ack are a great bit of surviving history. Were the Bond Equipe also made using the Vitesse chassis and motor ? Either way, excellent to have them in your collection. Where they are in the pecking order for restoration - within the foreseeable future ? It would be great to see them on the road. I'm pretty sure you must be fully aware of the TR4 equivalent - the Triumph Dove ^ Looks nicely done to me, and said to improve the aerodynamics / top end performance.

  8. check out what stuart posted in response to the guy making the Model 70 models asking for Invacar paint codes its official Invacar colour info! supposedly its what they used after 1994 for touch ups n stuff, ATW722L was repainted according to it. stuart thinks it was a touch too green and was more like what was used on 1966-68 vehicles but it may of just been the bright sunlight it was pictured in I personally think it looks pretty good, and compares pretty well to GPG721K, which I dont think has ever been repainted on account of being off the road since 1978 LOL should be very useful for @Zelandeth and @egg and anyone else looking to repaint an Invacar!
  9. Excellent work. A Bini is still on my want list. Yours looks grand.

  14. Your wife won't have forgot how many cars. When she wants a new kitchen and you say you have no money. She will list all your cars and how much you have spent on them. For instance . If you have twenty pounds and your wife has five pounds. How much does your wife have?? No wrong answer. She has £25.00. Weaker sex my arse. Happy anniversary.
  15. Today
  16. I'd never heard of a Veranti until I saw this today. The owner said it was Italian and there are only two in this country. Google tells me he was fibbing and it's actually a kit car based on an MR2 and made in Wigan.
  17. When I bought it the first time round it was my first AX, and it did take a few days to get used to the pedals. After that though there were no issues. My feet automatically shift one pedal to the left of where they would be in other cars and I've driven them with my size 14 work boots on without mashing all three pedals at once. My swede does get close to the roof lining and the seat headrest is pretty much between my shoulder blades but I've never had a problem fitting my 6'5" sack of mush in AXs, or any other of the procession of little French hatchbacks I've had since. In fact, as a dull aside, the only car I have not been able to fit and get comfortable in was a Lamborghini Diablo which went through the auctions I used to work at. The roof was so low that my neck and head would have needed to be at a perpendicular angle to the rest of my body.
  18. Look how fit this is https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Triumph-Trident-T150v/303167716490?hash=item4696343c8a:g:BDIAAOSwMrJc6qFo&frcectupt=true
  19. PurpleBargeKen's new motor? I saw 15 SAD today on a W210 Merc E-class. It looked pretty happy though.
  20. While I was there, decided to have the cam cover off, briefly, to check the condition of the timing chain and top follower/retainer, which was all a-okay! Will replace cam cover gasket too.
  21. I seen an old knackered looking Tigra as well an hour ago walking round to the shops, wonder if it's still there 😂
  22. Nice one, have joined, thanks.
