Re: underseal

I have used various products over the years but my latest project has been finished with Raptor, this is a 2K product and can be sprayed to achieve various finishes from a flat paint to a thick stippled effect. It is fuel and oil resistant which often softens many of the more traditional finishes. 6...

Re: Restoration of FF 119/133

Hi Martin, you are correct the old canister is merely being used to disguise the MK3 filter. This was just something I got sidetracked with the other day as I keep thinking about how to modify it, I was having a sort through my parts and decided to cut the bottom off the original canister to see wha...

Re: Restoration of FF 119/133

You are right Grant the position is ok for paper element filters on early cars but awful on MK3s. It would be better mounted elsewhere but unfortunately I'm an anorak Grant so the compromise is make the mod but try and disguise it a bit. I know it is still visible but once the engine and all the pip...

Re: Restoration of FF 119/133

Ive been thinking for a while about fitting a MK3 oil filter as I just dont like the early canisters as they can leak at the top and also allow lots of crap to accumulate in the bottom unless removed and cleaned with an oil change. The problem I have is I like to try and keep things looking original...

Re: Forum traffic decline - or my bad maths

It does seem quieter than it used to be, I think one problem is the use of other social media and in particular facebook, but also some regular users have not posted since the change. I would have thought it would be fairly easy to generate some statistics for the forum traffic for those with access...

Re: Interceptor and FF for sale on eBay

Well the FF finished just short of £50K and over £16K for the interceptor, then with shipping and some sort of import tax to add on now we are not in the EU.
Im not sure what the import tax is on a classic car from EU, does anybody know.

Re: Interceptor article in the New York Times

A nice write up and good to see some members cars getting some exposure.

Pymmies car has certainly done a lot to promote the marque over the last 12 months with magazine and newspaper articles as well as tv and calendar appearances.

Re: LED headlight bulbs

Ive ordered a LED kit from Classicar LED this week, the full kit except headlights. There were no warnings about the headlights being illegal on the website but when I questioned them I was told they will fail an MOT. As Phil mentioned I would be worried about an insurance claim as our cars are gett...
