Re: Side screen fitting Hawk 289 HELP!

Now that is interesting - very prescient - thanks for posting!

I have also discovered that MOSS Part No 805-170 side curtain socket will fit original sidescreen pins, and costs rather less than Europa prices.
originally for Healey/MG, they do have a slot in the top, which might offend some folks.

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?
