Into the shed -

PI Estate comes home

Quick post to highlight the bit of Britax roof I'm after - The PI estate made it home today - a night out in the cold and then into the shed tomorrow - lots of work to go but the end is in sight

I need a "cover" to this lever which sits over and under covering up the rivets and locating the pivoting handle better

Just realised one of the floor rubbers is out of line - crap

Dodgy polybushes - but a good mod

Bought these from Witor (new on the left- modded Avon Metalastic original on the right) and he did say that he didn't give any warranty as they weren't made to his spec.

Turns out the 7/16" (11.1mm) hole is actually 12.3mm - which is good for nothing metric or imperial. Bit silly really - they are meant to improve location not rattle around. Ended up drilling it out to 1/2" and will find some suitable grade 8 bolts to fit - will actually be stronger in the end.

Mt Clarence Hillclimb June 2012

Dick Wards rotary engined spaceframed Abarth 500  I think it got FTD at about 30secs - hear it here....

At the top of the hill - my best time was 35.62 secs - best last year was 37.18secs so those extra 20 odd horses released from the GT seem to have worked

Natty little Alfa tucked away in the car park
