  3. Solder or crimp - just make sure its done properly ! Working on my Austin Mini project during lock down and have spent a large amount of time trying to chase down an electrical fault to the rear off side indicator - bought this as an abandoned project - PO was a bit of a "maverick" and eventually gave up on the car (brake calipers fitted upside down - multiple brake compensator valves fitted ) - loom looked to be in excellent condition - possible even new - eventually found the problem in the rear pillar badly wrapped in electrical tape) - personally I solder brass bullets and use the ori

  5. Revingtons no longer do their spraying "in house" (probably not for quite a few years ) https://www.revingtontr.com/workshop-facilities
  6. on ebay US motors https://www.ebay.com/itm/1976-Triumph-TR-6-Convertible/323940974627?hash=item4b6c630023:g:IwQAAOSwerZdm5rN ebay US no. 323940974627 looks pretty solid and "honest" and cheap- even allowing for the import charges - though the lack of a title would need checking
  7. http://www.cardustcovers.co.uk/car_covers/ I've had the same had a metex car cover for my MGA for over 30 years and been very happy with it
  8. Taken from the UK ESSO website - https://www.esso.co.uk/fuels-faqs The majority of unleaded 95 Octane petrol sold in the UK contains up to 5% ethanol as required under the Government’s Renewable Transport Fuels Obligation (RTFO). There is currently no requirement for renewable fuel (such as ethanol) to be present in super unleaded (97 grade petrol). Esso super unleaded petrol (Synergy Supreme+ Unleaded 97) is ethanol free (except in Devon, Cornwall, the Teesside area and Scotland). We would therefore advise anyone who has concerns about the presence of ethanol in petrol to use Syner
  9. Thanks Magnus Pics and links are really helpful cheers Matt
  10. That is good news re mintylamb web site being back up - often came across links to it which wouldn't work Magnus - would be interested in any pics you can put up ? - I have a acquired a pair of TR7 HS6's for future fitting
  11. Also meant Algorithm (Benford Law ?) - 15 years in IT and I still need aversion therapy ....... I've done the same Hamish, so hopefully should be removed soon

( there are only so many hours one can fritter away surfing the net......) Come on E bay surely you make enough cash to be able to set up a logarithm to spot these adds ? !
  13. That's good to know you had good service from Kingstown as well Graham I'm currently using Kingstown for the importation of the Bonneville I've bought on the basis of the good service they provided when importing my 6 - ask for Mark Cowley There are so many temptations on craigslist !!! cheers Matt
  14. Pete Try this for the USA to USA port https://www.uship.com/ - essentially logistics company will quote you but remember Uship are a 3rd party and you need to satisfy that you chosen logistics are OK - (normally via there feedback) When I imported my TR6 I used - http://www.kingstown-shipping.co.uk/ and can recommended them - personally I would contact the shippers first as they will advise you of which US port your chosen vehicle can be moved to and which UK port it can be brought into and what costs are involved - the 6 I imported was a non runner and this doe
