Re: Side screen fitting Hawk 289 HELP!

I can’t say that I agree with you on that Stuart. I find that driving with the hood up is a little too snug for comfort plus you have to have the windows slightly open to stop the misting up. I certainly use the side screens on their own when on the motorway as it cuts down the noise from other vehi...

Re: Going Covid stir crazy?

I was talking to my bed about doing just that and the reply was to sleep on it.!

Going Covid stir crazy?

Thought you might enjoy this one. Everyone please be careful because people are going crazy from being locked down at home! I was just talking about this with the microwave and the toaster while drinking my tea, and we all agreed that things are getting bad. I didn’t mention any of this to the washi...

Re: Sidescreens covering, done!

It might be the magnification of the photo of the bolt detail but my material looks a finer weave than the photo and no loose threads. I had problems cutting the front portion of perspex and it gained some small cracks possibly due to using the wrong saw blade. I replaced it with polycarbonate which...

Re: IVA Pass and Registration

Hi Stu, as already stated it will settle a bit with use so you will be re adjusting it in a years time. The front does look a tad low and probably worth nudging it up a bit now to assist the exhaust over the speed bumps. If you happen to traverse the M40 do NOT venture into the services at Oxford. T...

Simon, I don’t think magnets work on fibreglass!

Re: LED Rear fogs / LED PL700s

Totally agree Frank. I have used the concave Cibies decades ago and can vouch for their nice level cut off of the headlight beam ( plus raised kerbside) and had a good fill in. They were also able to be converted for continental use by a simple movement of an adjuster where the bulb mounted. Yes I’m...

Re: T289R Flash Jan edition

I guess it will depend on what the V5 states.
Not easy to swap the adhesive version of the front plate.

Re: LED Rear fogs / LED PL700s

Correction to my earlier post ref the P700 headlights. I have since ventured onto their web site and the £199 does not appear to include the bulbs, so yes it’s an expensive venture. My experience to date with Better Car Lighting has been one of high quality so I guess you get what you pay for. One w...

Re: New member

Ian, the route from a single carb into the combustion chamber would longer and be more tortuous for the first and last cylinders than with the twin carb set up. This would cause difficulties with getting good performance and reasonable economy. Better still with triples for a six cylinder engine. Sa...
