  1. Happy Birthday Tom and many happy returns. Cheers, Sean
  2. I "renewed" the silvering on mine with chrome paint. Rubbed down with scotchbrite, cleaned and masked up, plastic primer and chrome paint from an aerosol. Very happy with the result as you wouldn't even notice at 70 mph. Did the same with the front indicators/sides.
  3. And many happy returns. Have a great day. Sean
  4. Great video Stan. I love the irony of driving a British Sportscar to celebrate independence from.........Britain
  5. That's brilliant Gareth. Many thanks, Sean
  6. Hi Gareth, That looks great. I'll be following your lead. Are you able to provide links to the cables/switch you bought? Only difference is my battery poles at the forward side of the battery, not the rearward. Many thanks again, Sean
  7. Hi Gareth, Have you worked out where you might fit it? I had a look at mine yesterday and couldn't get my head around where would be a good place to put it. Sean
  8. Refurb by a known and trusted supplier such as Pete Cox, Hardy Engineering etc, every time. By the way, £1,100 sounds on the low side for a proper refurb.
  9. +1. Also interested in doing this
  10. Had a nice 40ish mile drive through the Surrey/Kent/Sussex borders yesterday with my wife and Charlie the spaniel. Took in Lingfield, Edenbridge, Cowden, Hartfield, Forest Row, East Grinstead and a few more. Stopped in Forest Row to have an ice cream in the sunshine, but I only had an old fashioned currency called cash and the shop wouldn't take it - cards only......oh well no ice cream. Lovely day for a drive
  11. Just to update everybody on this issue. Having decided that the problem was in the diff, I agreed terms on a reconditioned unit with Rich and started to take it out. It was then that I discovered play in the rear UJ on the prop shaft which I think was causing the knocking all along. Not sure how this came about. All the bearings were there but one side of the UJ was able to slide over and back in the caps. You can see what I mean in the video. Anyway, replaced the UJ in the prop shaft. Put it all back together and the clunking is gone. Had a 40 mile drive through the Sussex countryside this afternoon and no clunking. Rich kindly agreed to defer our deal on a replacement diff, gentleman that he is. Thank you to everybody who helped with this issue. Sean

    Not if you use jack stands and raise the car evenly to begin with. I use a can like this (not this make or supplier) to top up the GB from underneath. Works well. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sealey-TP05-500ml-Metal-Flexible/dp/B00S6BUDPC/ref=pd_lpo_60_img_0/260-9888668-4865932?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00S6BUDPC&pd_rd_r=f0567d49-d9d3-4e9b-ac37-6af4864a34e2&pd_rd_w=s0s47&pd_rd_wg=kvnil&pf_rd_p=7b8e3b03-1439-4489-abd4-4a138cf4eca6&pf_rd_r=AF6NFK3JPNW7GH2HATAZ&psc=1&refRID=AF6NFK3JPNW7GH2HATAZ
  13. Mark, Thank you for suggesting this. With the offside output shaft released and the nearside one still immobilised, I clearly hear the knocking noise when I spin the offside wheel (ie with the nearside wheel not moving). I think this strongly suggests that the knock is in the diff because 1. The nearside which has some minor play in the driveshaft is not moving 2. I know the offside driveshaft has zero play therefore the knocking noise cannot be from driveshaft play so must be from the diff. QED Thank you all for your help. Sean
