  1. Yes its 5% or mostly 0% from USA to UK at the moment -- I just got a TR6 - 0% -- But it may or may not change depending on which club you talk to and which sources get heard -- I think its just a wait and see what happens January February -

  2. Sorry to say I am a wall sitter ----- I cherry pick both. Ok thanks be to everyone -- SO -- TAX - VAT or whatever new ones they come up with.. Basically its all going to end up "RELATIVE" - whether you live in or buy from the UK or EU - To use a good old English phraze - "Its all gonna pan out the same eventually for UK and EU - - So there wont be much change for Buyers of cars or suppliers of parts eventually. I keep using that word eventually so eu and uk are gonna have to bite the bullet for a few years I reckon.. We might even end up with a more level playing field in the end than
  3. SO -- My brains working overtime this morning -- Erm - So when an imported vehicle lands here from the USA normally its not subject to VAT and has a very low 5% or 0% import duty tax on its purchase price -- as it was originally made in the UK ( EU ) ---------------------------OK So after the 1st Jan we are BREXITEDED -- Does anyone know if === as non EU members is the UK Gov going to charge us VAT at 20% on the purchase price ( or Value ) and import duty tax at whatever 10% , 20% -- anyone any clue what so ever -- I doubt the DVLA knows - maybe we all know better ??? !!! ANYONE
  4. S0 -- I'm just starting the process off to get a car over here to the UK from America -- I have been told just by random people that the car must drive at least some yards and stop under its own braking system - In order for it to LEAVE the USA ===== BUT - All my research shows me after months of reading is that in fact that is not a requirement ,, the only time these two things become a requirement is when The vehicle check people in the UK come around to see the car for UK First Registration, then it must start / go and stop up & down your drive - I know that because I just had m
  5. I love your story == Tech things are great - but real life is greater

    I am just getting my 14 year old interested in converting some  TR to Electric - My freind and I are just working on the fiances for it all at the moment -- seems to be the way forward for the younger generation, that and 3D components -- ME - give me the  puffing chugger smelling of petrol and oil anyday - but the future is not about me --  bring on more story's   -- Andrew

  6. Hi Jerry - You might be right there Why Indeed bore it out when all my research says you dont seem to get that many extra horses from all the work 200cc seems to be the extra capacity max which may or may not give 5 - 6 horses extra-- I could probably get that from other simple low cost work done on the engine -- Mmmm  food for thought -- thanks for that Jerry  ---- Andrew

  7. Thats great info - i will print it and pop it my folder --  Thanks so much - Andrew

  8. Thanks for that info will check it out -- Andrew
  9. Well a an old friend of mine told me when he worked on the TR6 engine developement in the 60s the most used Tech terms in the plant then were -- BLOB & DOLLOP
  10. Ok so I am now starting my hunt for a Mig Welder New or Second Hand - No clue of type or model what to buy ! Can Anybody recommend one that they have used to do a MAJOR rebuild / restore == I would be very grateful -- Andrew
  11. Looks great this 1/43rd kit -- I am buying buy one and may send it to this 3D printers I am working with and get all the parts 3D printed and upscaled to at least 1/18th  or larger -- brilliant new Tech stuff -- Not pennies initially  but easily replicated afterwards to actually produce at fair low cost -- Might have ago at that over next 12 months -- thanks for getting me thinking --  -- Andrew

      Yes I will do -- I'd like to fill a void there for plastic kits as I just cant find TR6   Surely they didnt do nTR3  and 4  and then 5 and then 7 and so on -- Surely not ? -  take care --  Check my new technical note just being posted in 10 minutes -- hope it makes you smile -- Andrew

  12. I havent started my restore / rebuild yet ( next spring - premises hold up - now simply planning ) BUT - before i start the engine does anyone know what is the maximum bore out that could be done on a TR6 block ? it doesnt look like its possible to get much of any extra horses from it by boring out from my research - I dont know how much block there is to bore out without striking thru ? Any info just on bore outs would be welcome.. Andrew
  13. Yeh now I think about it I seem to remember my MK1 Capri had wing mirrors - will have to dig my old polaroid fotos out see if my memory serves me ( at all )  thanks for that -- Andrew

  14. Thanks for that info -- I like the look of the wing mounted- even if useless I may keep them.. Andrew

  15. NO CLUE WHY BUT MY TR6 JUST GOT LAST LOCKDOWN ( WELL THERE WAS NOTHING ELSE TO DO !! ) HAS WING MIRRORS ON IT -- HAS ANYONE ELSE GOT THEM ? - I BELIEVE THEY ARE USELESS - THATS WHY I CANT SEE ANY CARS WITH THEM HALF WAY DOWN THE WINGS PROBABLY.. DOES IT ACTUALLY SPOIL THE LOOKS ?? OR DOES IT MAKE THE CAR LOOK MORE VINTAGE ? Mmm -- ANY THOUGHTS FROM ANYBODY WOULD BE MULLED OVER -- PRACTICAL PROBLEMS MAYBE - LIKE KEEP WALKING INTO THEM - KIDS SNAPPING THEM OFF AN THE WAY PAST ?? NOT RUSHING IT - I HAVE TO GLUE THE HEAP OF RUST BACK TOGETHER FIRST - THEN I'M GONNA TAKE STOCK SHARES OUT
