  1. Evening all, Got down to a 1m 14s at Silverstone, I'm pretty happy with that. I'm going to try and get a near full season in with CSCC next year, I think, but then again I may end up doing the 'invitation' races locally again. I'm planning on converting the car to Equipe/FIA spec over the next year or two. I've got steel wings to be prepped and painted. Any recommendations for a sensible body shop in the Midlands? I know my bushes will all need changing and some of the suspension bits removed. I've currently got a steering rack so will be looking for a steering box. If any
  2. Anyone racing at Silverstone this weekend? I'll be in The Jack Fairman race. Hope it doesn't rain as hard as it did last year... Cheers Ed
  3. Not many were catching up with you, Roy!
  4. Hello Roy Yes the Bentley Drivers Club meet. See you ther Ed
  5. Now how do you upload a video? Had a great day, was made very welcome by the MGOC. Seems the commentator had a fixation on this car, was told he spoke more about it than any other. Obviously I couldn't hear him. What a great track at Castle Combe! I got quicker and quicker, down to 1m 30s per lap by end, not too shabby for a novice. Car was just lovely once we got the isolating switch fixed and thru' scrutineering. I pulled out of the first race as car was getting hot, only to find that all the cars were due the weather! Second race was superb. Mixed grid was a
  6. Fantastic Hamish, glad you got there in the end. Ed
  7. First race of the season next Sunday 7th at Castle Combe. Invitation class with the MGOC. Gulp! I'll be the only Triumph there but the old rivalries are in the past, I hope. Roy - did the photos help? It's difficult trying to photograph the mountings. Cheers Ed
  8. How frustrating for you, feeling your pain.
  9. Sorry for you. Glad you are safe Roy. That's all that counts at the end of the day. Ed
  10. Evening all, Got the car back today, test day at Castle Combe, really useful afternoon. First time there but I'm really just learning to drive that dog gearbox. Roy/David, both Cobra seats are fitted, I'm 5'7" and in almost the most rearward place they could fit, they are just about perfect for me. If you're much taller then the roll bar stops them being positioned further back. Feel very upright esp with a HANS device. They just fit under the side bars of the cage. I'll take some pictures tomorrow and post them. Cheers Ed
  11. Plenty of Black ones still available at £210. But black is always slower than red right?
  12. Just checked. Looks like Demon Tweeks have sold out as well on their eBay store
  13. Aaaaaaaaggghhhhhhh!! Bought two Cobra Monaco Pro's and new harness last night! Roll cage is already in. I'm not tall so hopefully seat will be forward enough not to foul on the roll cage but not sure about the prop tunnel. Ebay had one left with side brackets for £210. Bought that. Demon Tweeks are doing them at £210 without side brackets. Bought one from them. Both will be fitted in next few weeks so I'll know then whether to I've been hasty. Roy, my pleasure, you have a lovely car.
  14. Evening all, Hope all's well and cars getting ready. Mines had a fair bit done since Silverstone and nearing completion. Some advice please. I'm looking to buy a pair of racing seats. Fixed. Red preferably. FIA approved. Base fitting. Has anyone any experience with the Cobra Monaco Pro? Or any suggestions? Cheers Ed

    Found it by the simplest method! Found the original email from when I sold it and emailed. Car still going strong. Happy days
  16. Fellas, I was looking (google) for a picture of an engine block to show the screw hole. That picture was from a post from this website a few years ago. Thanks for helping out Cheers

    My old car, TR3 1957, BRG. Graham Foote had it after but i can see he hasn't posted for a while. Hope it's still around Cheers Ed
  18. The winner's champagne makes my hair curly...
  19. Evening all, Could you shed some light as to what fits into this hole? It's threaded. (photo copied from this forum) A M6 bolt just fits in so I guess a 5/16 bolt would be the right size? Thanks in advance. Ed
  20. We'll need umbrellas I think... Good luck to al
  21. Hello Roy, I'll be there, be good to meet you. Are you part of the AMOC meeting? I'll be in a Red Tr3a Cheers Ed
