Polycarbonate

Hi all,
Apologies to the moderators if this is in the wrong place, but I wanted to reach the widest possible audience.

I need to replace my rear and side windows with polycarbonate, does anyone know of anywhere that may be able to help?

Re: Fastest Jensen (CV-8) at Race Retro 2020 (FHBVC)

Thanks for the advert VFK44.

We'll be there for the complete weekend and would be more than happy to meet up with anyone that wants to chat.

The project title has more to do with a film than reality but it's no slouch either!

CV8 MK2 Windscreen Wanted

Good morning all,
I appear to have developed a small crack in my windscreen. Unfortunately this is going to stop me racing until I can get it fixed.
Are they readily available from suppliers as I intend to try and claim off my insurance?
Alternatively if anyone wants to help out a poor racer ...

Re: Trackday with the C-V8 (Anneau du Rhin)

Hi Felix, They really are great fun on a track, all that power!! I would recommend have a look at introducing some negative camber to get the best out of radial tyres, a racing seat and an Interceptor steering wheel. They are aluminium and not wood rimmed so don't have anywhere near the same amount ...

Re: Hampton Court Concours of Elegance

A fantastic job by all.
This has been great for expanding the popularity of the marque.
I had offered to stand in for Anton if there were any issues with his car, but he seemed to have scraped by without my help.
Well done to David and Chris, a lot of work but so obviously worth it.

Re: Brake Horsepower charity event in July

Hi,
It seems that we're not getting a lot of interest from this forum.
If anyone is interested the organiser has finally got a websote up and running.

Re: Bonneville 2019 and a T56

Hi Bruce and eveyone else,
Just as a point of order I am going back to Bonneville in 2020 not this year.
However I am very keen to get the car sorted as soon as possible to give me time to resolve the ineveitable problems and avoid the panics of last year.

Re: Workshop Clearance C-V8 383

Hi Richard,
Sorry if this is late.
As it happens I do have a set of 5 original steel wheels.
I'm not sure whether to sell one or if it's worth more as a set?
Assistance from the experts on this would be good!

I do not have any engine mounts but I think the gear cable is available.

Re: Workshop Clearance C-V8 383

Hello Alan The radio is a period Balupunkt but I have absolutely no idea whether it works, the wiring was such a mess behind it it is unclear whether it was the car or the radio that wasn't working. £20 I know I have the cable from the lever to the axle but will have to look whether I have the other...
