  1. My wife has stopped sending goods to Europe or Ireland for the time being until we know what paperwork required. our normal shipper - UPS will not even accept shipments to Northern Ireland! We are too old to bother investigating the requirements so will probably cease any international business as we have enough domestic work.. Nigel
  2. Hi Eddie The only problem I had was clearing the steering column, so the mounting bracket I made up took a fair bit of adjustment before everything was in the right position. Merry Christmas Nigel
  3. Hi Eddie just taken a couple of quick photos, hope they help. If you want any more pictures or info let me know. Nigel
  4. Hi Eddie i used the mechanism from a big saloon (can’t remember the correct terminology or model) This was bolted to the carb using a bracket I made up. ive attached some pictures , but cannot find one of it installed. If you like I can photograph it tomorrow Nigel
  5. Very pleased to find a picture of mine on the shore at Lake Como Nigel
  6. Thank you. Wasn’t ready when UPS driver called so unfortunately got to take the TR to Heathrow again!!! What a shame!! Nigel
  7. I’m presently redoing all the dash wiring and have done away with all the old connectors and replaced them with more modern ones. The bulbs are being replaced with LEDs and I’ve also used new bulb holders. Everything will be able to be disconnected easily and the multi plugs will only connect one way so any future maintenance ( hopefully not required for many years as everything new!!!) should be simplified. Nigel
  8. Thanks everyone for the wishes, we are all in good health here except for Angie who has recently had her appendix removed. Almost recovered and went back to work today but she will be on light duties for the next couple of weeks. Nigel
  9. I’m sure they helped solve a few of your problems. Nigel
  10. When I was restoring the 250 my neighbour opposite went round the neighbours with a petition to stop me working. Luckily some of the neighbours have classic cars and she wasn’t very popular so it never got off the ground. We've only just started speaking after 10 years Nigel
  11. I had the same problem, but after discussing it with Jeff Marks at Moss I persevered and it was a perfect fit. Nigel
  12. Hi Chris, Remember those problems well, my Capri suffered like this. Nigel
  13. Thanks for the kind comments, just been for a short drive and it has really transformed the steering at low speed. Used to dread having to park, but not anymore. The tracking is out, have tried various DIY methods but none very successful, hopefully get it done professionally Monday. Really happy! Nigel
  14. Hi Paul I had considered narrower tyres ( have 195’s on 6 “ genuine Minilites at present) but as well as loss of strength, I’ve been suffering from increasing joint and muscle pain so in the end decided this was the best solution. It had got to the stage where I dreaded parking and Roger, of course Being an ex London Cabbie - U turns were becoming no fun!! Almost finished now - had a few problems as the kit is designed for fuel injection so had to modify the fluid reservoir bottle to clear the carbs. Hope to have a first drive today or tomorrow. Nigel
