Links to useful info for Tribute builders...
 
Introduction:
This is an attempt to pull lots of useful information into a single thread.
The content of this thread has already been edited and changed a few times.
One reason is trying to keep up with the ever increasing Tribute range.
The other is a Forum limit on the number of photos that can be included per post.
So you will have to work your way through both pages to see all the build threads.

What can I say other than thank you so much for doing such a great job, one which I should have done a long time ago.

Thanks again.

Regards Chris

I can't remember where that was Pat, but fear not the new and improved Tribute website is on it's way very soon.....

Z3
 
Any links to Z3 strip tips? Cheers a good sticky for Tribute builds mate

blueface 4th June 2014 13:18

Would be be feasible/possible to create a list of parts needed and where best to buy for the kits?

Maybe builders could chip in where they have purchased from and even give tips on what NOT to buy!

I'm going down the cobra route so if anyone has bought bits and pieces for theirs maybe they could point me in the right direction (side vents, hinges, headlights and rims etc..)

Car builder solutions and Europa seem like the biggest players.

(Z3 stripping tips would be great too!)

Hi
 
Hi found links great a lot of useful info me and my dad are doing one each he hard top me convertible we are moving any one got some hints please to help we are unable to get headlight bucket in due to lack of space at car front from car existing structure
thanks

fatbloke 19th August 2014 15:48

I had to cut away some of the front crash protector and some small bits of steel under the head light mounts (I was working on a MK2). Take a look at what is fouling and grind it out bit by bit until the lights will go in. As long as you don't cut out anything structural you should be okay.

Drummajor 19th August 2014 19:54

I cut away some of the plastic bucket too .

Danny_HUFC 20th August 2014 11:21

I cut the back of the plastic light bucket.

Found an excellent site for Z3s and thought I'd share it - there are some important bits to look for when selecting a donor, from the well publicised VANOS & Nikasil on certain engines to the less well known diff mount cracking: https://zroadster.org/articles/?cate...z3-wiki&id=274
