    My Wednesday Fun..... NOT !

    Well, after never being in an ambulance in my life, I managed 2 on Wednesday. Recovery from my transplant is generally going well, and I'd probably been doing a little too much the day before, took a load of junk from the garage to the tip, bought some trousers at ASDA and even made it to our...

    P6 Kit

    Interesting one to value.. The shell has been dipped and phosphated, which we know isn't cheap, but it's basically just a big box of bits. You've still got all the welding to do, and paint, and reassemble, I wouldn't want to put a value on it.

    Following on from a previous thread about smartphone access to the forum, I've been made aware of this Tapatalk system, which allows you to access multiple forums from a single phone app. It should be relatively easy to add the system to our forum, the question is, would it be worthwhile ? Does...

    A4 P6

    Ok, going back to the convertible theme, many of you will know I build a semi-convertible many years ago, but it died, and was replaced by a new project, which may or may not end up as a coupe, we'll see..... Anyway, I've never forgotten the convertible, and one of the main issues with building...

    According to this months Practical Performance Car, engine swaps in pre 1973 (i.e. tax exempt) vehicles will NOT require evidence of purchase etc. Regardless of capacity, so you can stick that Chevy small block in and just register the capacity change and engine number change, no evidence...

    CD Player repairs....

    Had to report on this as it made me chuckle. My trusty Marantz CD40 which was the first CD player I bought roughly 22 years ago decided to finally fail on me.

    Rear suspension / drive shaft design

    Rather than go totally OT on Ron's thread, I thought I would start a new discussion.... So I asked about the angle of the driveshafts from the diff to the hubs, my suggestion was that ideally they should be straight and level when the car was in a normal operating condition, and then deflect...

    NSU Ro80

    Doing the usual ebay - dreaming, and following a recent discussion on Ro80's I found this Cheap, but no doubt needs loads of work. Drop in a more conventional engine (rover v8 anybody ?) and it would make a very unusual motor. Can't say I've ever seen...
