    Hi , Looks fantastic! Unsure of the figures made with a sunroof, not sure it was recorded in the VUN number so it might be difficult to trace that number accurately. The registrars would know better than I, you can find their details in he back of TR Action Magazine. As for the cylinder heads, all V8Tuner's products used to be good and have used them for many parts over the years. I believe they closed down earlier this year and am not sure if they will re-open any time soon.
  2. Sad news that Silverstone Classic has been cancelled. Full statement on our news pages: https://www.tr-register.co.uk/article/2020/05/0236/Silverstone-Classic-cancels-30th-anniversary-event We are receiving a high level of enquiries on this at present. Can I ask members to please not contact the TR Register office for refunds on tickets and to direct all correspondence to the organisers Silverstone Classic.
  3. Sunday 26 April 2020 would, under normal circumstances, have seen thousands of historic vehicles take to the roads across the UK to celebrate the season opening FBHVC National Drive It Day. However, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, activities that involve taking a historic vehicle out on the road specifically for the purposes of Drive it Day, have had to be abandoned. All enthusiasts are now urged to stay at home on 26 April 2020 and not partake in any non-essential travel for Drive it Day. Instead, the FBHVC invite you to get involved in a nationwide social media campaign to spread positivity around the historic vehicle community during this difficult time. Don’t have access to social media? That’s OK as well, because the FBHVC have created a website where owners and organisations can easily upload their photos to share with the national effort to raise awareness around our important freedoms to use transport heritage in all its diverse forms. All you have to do is visit www.driveitday.co.uk and click the upload button. There you will be directed to a very simple form that will enable you to submit your photos for inclusion on the site. We will be accepting submissions for a whole month, until May 26 2020 to give everyone the opportunity to contribute to, view and enjoy your images. Those individuals and clubs that do have social media access are encouraged to participate on 26 April 2020 in the mass sharing, via social media, of images and memories of themselves and their families out and about in their historic vehicles during a previous year’s Drive it Day – using the hashtag #DriveitDayMemories. Our website at www.driveitday.co.uk will curate those images into a single display and we will also of course share them across the FBHVC channels to draw attention to the TR Register. So, use your chosen social media platform this weekend to share images and stories of memorable trips with your historic vehicles or indeed, what you might be working on within the ‘self – isolation’ of your garage or shed. Use the hashtag #DriveitDayMemories and we can’t wait to see your photos and memories! P.S - Congratulations to our very own Derek for being the 'face' of the national campaign !
  4. I would suggest : a) Reboot as described above b) Ensure you are logged in c) Ensure your iPad / Safari has installed the relevant updates. To find these, open the App store , select updates and just allow to update all. Then under General settings also update you IOS. The forum software is constantly updated to ensure it keeps up with the new releases and requirements from browsers, but sometimes that means that the older versions get left behind.
  5. There was a lot of speculation on car forums before the announcement, but the official government statement said 6 months : https://www.tr-register.co.uk/article/2020/03/0226/Government-grant-MoT-exemptions-in-battle-against-Coronavirus
  6. With the rapid development of the Covid-19 pandemic and after extensive discussions with all the show’s partners, Clarion Events Ltd has taken the difficult decision to postpone the forthcoming Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show, with Discovery. Clarion Events Ltd is working with the NEC to find suitable options to reschedule the event. Tickets already purchased will be valid for the rescheduled date. Further updates will be issued once the organisers have more information to share. Ticket holders are advised to check the website and social media channels as well as monitor their inbox for newsletters. Lee Masters, Show Director, said: “The wellbeing of our visitors, exhibitors and staff is paramount. Therefore, we have taken the decision to postpone the event. This is an unprecedented situation and we ask for patience as we transition to the new date.” All ticket and exhibitor bookings will be carried over to the new date. If you have any questions, please visit the website www.necrestorationshow.com or contact your ticket vendor directly. As a smaller event gathering, Classic Car Auctions will be running its auction as originally planned. Please visit www.classiccarauctions.co.uk for further details of how to get involved. The TR Register will be constantly updating our advice and latest news on Coronavirus in line with developments and updated advice, so please keep watching this page: https://www.tr-register.co.uk/article/2020/03/0222/Coronavirus-guidance
  7. Note from the Clerk of the Course, Bill Rosten issued yesterday: The Land’s End Trial has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic: Mulling through the latest advice from the Government, Motorsports UK and various media, I have been discussing this with quite a few people and listening to their advice. I am of the opinion that we ought to postpone the Land's End rather than cancel or indeed to carry on trying to run it. We have within the team discussed ways of: 1. Doing away with the need for officials to handle either the declaration or control cards. 2. Doing away with competitors signing on & off. 3. Providing extra washing facilities. Whilst this may be possible and even desirable, it will not eliminate the risk of transmission. Relying on competitors and officials to withdraw if they feel unwell only takes one so far. There are a number of unknown factors such as a period when an individual may be infectious but not yet showing symptoms. The COVID-19 outbreak is still spreading and curtailing our activities generally is a major step to limit its spread. Our event is low risk BUT there are areas where the risk of passing on this disease would be higher, such as controls in confined spaces (Barbrook) or rest halts (Bridgwater & Wilsey Down). I am not willing to place our officials and competitors in a position where they might be more exposed to the coronavirus, let alone the individuals and firms that supply facilities and refreshments. My feeling is that there will be more likelihood in the near future of events being closed down and a possibility that more of us will be confined to quarters. The current outbreak is not showing any signs of slowing down in either this country or our neighbours. Hopefully, over the next few weeks, we will understand how best to tackle this problem. Accordingly I propose that we delay the running of the Land's End until 11th/12th September, which does not conflict with ACTC events. Taking this decision now will give people time to make alternative arrangements with hotels etc. I apologise to anyone inconvenienced by this decision. Clerk of the Course Bill Rosten.
  8. Today, the British Motor Museum held a press launch to unveil its latest, most exciting exhibit. Ken Timms Chairman of Board of Trustees at the British Motor Museum and David Stocker, Trustee for The National Heritage Memorial Fund announced the addition of MVC 575 to the collection at Gaydon. The Museum now own the car, thanks to a £250,000 grant from the National Heritage Memorial Fund (NHMF). This historic Triumph TR2 broke the land speed record for two-litre production cars in Belgium, on the Jabbeke Highway. On that day in 1953 and with Ken Richardson at the wheel, it made the Triumph TR sports car a household name around the world. We covered the rebuild extensively in TR Action Magazine, was there at the launch of the restoration at the RAC Club in Pall Mall and even took it back to Jabbeke in 2017. Today marked an exciting moment in the life of this iconic TR. Video below, full article here: https://www.tr-register.co.uk/article/2020/03/0220/Jabbeke-TR2-arrives-at-British-Motor-Museum
  9. Hi John, The TR Register website and this Forum are currently completely different entities with completely different logins. One is not related to another. I'm looking at changing that in the very near future.
  10. Hi Iain, I'm not sure I understand what you are trying to achieve here. You clearly know your password and can login with your email / username otherwise, you wouldn't be able to post. The screen grab you posted shows that you are now using a different email to the one you initially provided and which I switched your account to. Is this the email you now want to use? pop@ rather than iain@ ? Is it that you are just trying to change your password for something more memorable? Your SpitfireSIX account is live, you are successfully posting and sending PMs, that account has iain@spitfire6.uk as your email address. Emails are being sent to your email address, there is no problem with them sending, so it must be that they are being caught up in a spam filter somewhere. Also, be aware the only emails you will receive are notifications of PMs or replies to threads. Some ISPs have a setting for anti-spam levels, I suggest you notch it down a mark. I have also gone through your account preferences and turned on your email notifications. A quick tip - be careful about adding a full stop after your email address. spitfire.uk is fine spitfire.uk. makes the system expect something to come after it, like .co.uk If you can help me better understand your needs, I can look again at this for you.
  11. Stan, you are correct - the Forum software has been majorly updated in recent times - now showing closer to actual IPs and accounts online rather than just any old search engine or Bot that happened to pass by. Still not perfect, as there are a lot of 'guests' listed but much more realistic. I could always separate out guests and "unsigned in" accounts from the usage stats, but they would always be lumped together on the display everyone sees at the bottom of the screen. A quirk of the forum software. Trust me, there were never 12,000 real physical people signed in on this forum at one time ever, even if the old version of the forum software used to show that! In real terms - the Forum has remained pretty static in user numbers and activity over the past year or so. That is a turn-around after an on-going steep decline seen over a number of years previously (which I had presented at AGMs in the past) and I would put that turn around down, in the most part, to the positive awareness that John Morrisson and the moderator team are building through their articles in TR Action and general promotion of the better aspects of the Forum community to the wider club. There is always an increase is traffic through the Spring and Summer months and I expect that will be larger this year thanks to John's efforts so we should start seeing growth again.
  12. The limit on file size is 4mb per image , you can have as many as you like on a page but bear in mind the more images , the longer it takes to load on some slower connections. Very occasionally, people hit the server limit on account storage, that's no problem - contact the office and we'll add more for you. I don't see a blog for you on the site but happy to advise if you need any more assistance. The blogs are good for writing a diary on a rebuild, from your point of view, stage by stage and sharing your story with others - like Panch did: https://www.tr-register.co.uk/rebuilders-diary/author/10114/venkatramanan-panchapakesan Forums are much better for Q&A and conversations with multiple contributors to a single thread. But you can add your updates here if you'd like, the option is yours - some people prefer a focused blog and that option is there for them over on the website.
  13. Hi Iain, You can now login with your new email and old password. Your old account was traced and has been merged with this one to keep your content intact and correctly attributed.
  14. Hi Alan, The office have looked into this for you and the issue with the broken link is now resolved.
  15. Hi Tom, I have sent you a PM and am sure I can help with your issues. Also you have been tagged as a member in here as you have successfully renewed until Jan 2021. Please see my private message for further help and information. These messages are accessed via clicking the envelope at the top right of the forum. I will also email you the messages direct.
