Re: R8 "The Graduate" re-run September 14/15th 2019

I'd been looking forward to this event all year but, unfortunately, the date was announced 2 days after I accepted an invitation to be a guest at the World Para Swimming Championships at the Olympic pool. Sorry, but I'm not prepared to let my host down. I hope you have a great time. It would have be...

Re: R8 Press Launch re-run - Oct 10th 2019

Cheapest room at Lucknam Park is £260 room only (£324 if you want breakfast), so I definitely wouldn't be staying over the night before. You said they need numbers in advance - do they need numbers of who is attending the event, or who is staying at their hotel?

Don't know yet. How far in advance do the hotel need to know?

216 GSi - Boot Spoiler Refitting - Advice/Experiences sought

Hi, my boot spoiler has now become completely detached from its mounting. Any advice and/or experience to pass on as to the best way to refit it please? I presume it is just stuck on, but obviously it would also need to be detachable again if I ever needed to remove the mounting. Is it fixed origina...

Re: Bedfordshire rover meet up?!

I'm in Northampton (not far from Bedford) and would be interested in pooling resources. Maybe even join you in a meet up.

Dunno at the moment, life's been a bit complicated recently. If things have evened out a bit by then, I'll try to get there.

Re: Front discs

I just hang the calipers off the suspension springs using a length of 4mm bonsai wire - great stuff to have in your toolkit. You won't necessarily need an impact driver but there's a fair chance you will. I've never had any problem getting the caliper bolts undone even very old ones - just use the r...

And says he has all tools needed - Many thanks I've bought the press for removing and fitting the radius arm bushes. I should be picking it up Friday. I'll bring it with me Saturday. It should make the job a lot easier and make us look reasonably professional. If the job gets done Friday instead, t...
