Default Post Stoneleigh Questions

Now I have more or less convinced myself to keep the car I will set about sorting the niggles, so there are a few things I need to clarify:-

The Corsa Column - Is it generic as fitted to all with power steering?

The Momo Gearknob on Ricola's and Eddies car - is it the MG TF one?

I'll swap the wishbone settings this afternoon to see if that rectifies the steering feel, parked the car outside for the first time in a couple of years and the sills are soaked now so I really need to do the mod to the windows!

Great to meet you all at the show, there are some innovative builders in the Phantom Camp.

Hi Nick,
The corsa column is from the Corsa C, there are fixed and height adjustable versions available, make sure you get the complete column, preferably with wiring and connectors. Then either buy a box off ebay to set the assistance or persevere with hooking up your speed sensor to give speed variable assist.

Yup, it's the MGTF one, easy to get hold of and cheap on ebay.

If mine doesn't sell soon I'll do the boot area like Chris' (IoW one) and the 75 wing mirrors like Ken, both will make really good additions for daily use!

Was really good to see so many other cars, excellent turnout.

PS Nick: if you are keeping it can you take the ad down as it may devalue other cars being up so cheap? ie mine!

Really good to meet up with everyone and seeing the cars lined up like that was fantastic.
Will have to get an MGTF gear knob but I am growing rather fond of my steering wheel.

Did changing your caster angle sort the steering problems for you?
What's the new project, wiht a price that low you must really want to sell now!!
