Re: LED Rear fogs / LED PL700s

I wasn't sure if the IVA guy would complain about having 2 fog lights, but don't know if its an issue or not. I like the look of the product, but no good for me as I have a stainless number plate holder that attaches underneath the number plate lamp unit. I converted to LED coffins last year and use...

LED Rear fogs / LED PL700s

Just been perusing a company that had advertised in the latest edition of 289News that I hadn't seen before: https://www.bettercarlighting.couk/ Not sure if this will pass with Mr MOT or Mr IVA(?), but this looks like a nice idea for adding an invisible fog lamp. https://www.bettercarlighting.co.uk/...

Loved watching 'the Right Stuff'.

Fly in the ointment was British stupidity letting the US govt walk away with the Miles airframe blueprints that became the Bell X-1.

Re: Goodwood Speed Week - 16-19 Oct

There was a jet-pack race billed as an event on the Sunday - does anyone know if that happened? My daughter was quite keen to see it, but scrolling through the footage a few times I couldn't see it. Speaking of jet packs, this is now available at Goodwood. https://gravity.co/experience/ Jet suit is...

Re: Question for Hardtop owners

That's perfect- thanks Nik.

I notice the U-channel added round the perimeter - does this form a good seal round the sidescreen top, or do you just accept that there is a bit of draft that blows in? I attached some knock-on boot rubber with an O-shaped moulding which I thought might give a better seal

Re: Question for Hardtop owners

Thanks Kev, is that the front edge of the internal lip is 3mm back or the lip is flush and the external aperture is 3mm back?

Question for Hardtop owners

If you have a hardtop (bubbletop or leMans) would you be able to tell me where the edge of the hardtop stops at the door aperture?
Is it flush with the top of the door cut out, or does the hardtop's internal moulded lip (for the sidescreen location) protrude just proud of this?

Thanks, Kevin
