If I'd known you were going to Malvern I would have come and said hello, I'm only 2 miles from the show ground. The Mrs had dragged me out to a National trust place so didn't go this time !
Never mind , might see you at Stoneliegh.

Good to see some footage of the car driving ...Its great to see static images of our cars , but you can't beat watching them actually driving ... I should imagine you got plenty of looks on your journey ...

Sounds really rorty when you rev it! Quite surprised by how different your sounds to mine with essentially the same type of exhaust mod - my MAF is snafu so unplugged at the mo. wonder if it's anything to do with that?

Like it, like it, like it, well done its a great example and i like your attention to detail. Seeing what can be achieved is an inspiration for anybody contemplating building a 250 swb rep.

You will never get tired of hearing that exhaust note.

Talking

Hi,

MPG worked out around 28 on the run (motorways mainly, cruising 70ish). However due to 'Rorting' the gauge moved much more quickly towards empty than my wallet appreciates

Tunnels and wide bridges are the best, with built up towns with narrow streets coming in a close second...

Thumbs up More parts added...

I got a BMW blanking plate and boot handle part from Richard at Nubodi and fitted them, along with a Front strut brace and Faux Ferrari Model plate which I riveted into the door shut area (Nicked idead from Kevemm's car, sorry ). Also fitted original kick plates and fittings. Ohh and put a chrome strike plate on rear boot fitting for hook to come through nicely, again nicked the idea from Jeff H, sorry again.....

Cool

Hi Scott,

Kick covers were on the Z3 BMW, standard issue, has roadster embossed in them in the chrome part, so guess mine was a Roadster intitally?

Had to dremmel part of the black plastic moulding away to make flush fit with the new rear part, but other than that, just push fit back into place on original fixings.



Cheers.

Ah OK - I thought they looked original equipment. So my car would've had them before the kit was fitted - probably sold off with the other bits but I got a good kick back so no worries. They definitely look good so am keeping am eye out although appear to be rare on ebay.

Hi,

Please could I ask where you bought the strike plate for the boot lock?

Many thanks,
Roger

Thumbs up Strike plate

Good morning Roger,

The Strike plate was a standard Chubb lock kit from B&Q, with an extended modified hole to allow the hook to pass through.

Cheers!

Wink Engine bay and Boot area

Hi All,

I have been tidying the enigne bay and carpeted the extended boot area part, here are some photos.

Iv'e always been a bit embarrassed showing someone under the hood as it was all a little 'untidy', but not now!
