  1. You are an absolute gentleman Bibs - thank you for the name check.
  2. Hi Pete - good question. I have the GRP roof as well. It's sat in the loft for 5 years. I was surprised it was still in 1 piece.
  3. You can buy all of the parts you need from SJ Sportscars - so not really an issue. I’m asking members what their thoughts are - so not too sure. I’ve seen crazy prices and I know you can’t get them any more.
  4. Hi chaps - long time no hear! I'm selling my glass roof. But I don't know what the going price is at the moment. I've seen some crazy prices - but also don't want to sell too cheaply. It is just the roof. The brackets are not included. Please let me know your thoughts.
  5. It was indeed the purple nasty - in Palacio Purple. I was pleased to be fortunate enough to be behind a palacio purple M100
  6. Fantastic event. Well done to Bibs and all those involved with organising it. And some more
  7. I am exceedingly happy with the kit and installation. Huge transformation in braking reliability, feel and stopping distance. The best thing is that it has transformed the car and how it can be driven. Can not recommend this set up enough.
  8. Legendary Bibs - nice job - all ordered - even used the notes section
  9. Can I just check: is it Saturday and Sunday? Also are people staying Friday and Saturday?
  10. Alternatives are: buying a stronger whip; changing riders; threatening the horse with termination; appointing a committee to study the horse; arranging to visit other sites to see how they ride dead horses; reclassifying the dead horse as “living-impaired”; hiring outside contractors to ride the dead horse; harnessing several dead horses together for increased speed; donating the dead horse to a recognized charity and deducting its full original cost; doing a time management study to see if lighter riders would improve productivity; declaring a dead horse has lower overhead and therefore performs better; and promoting the dead horse to a supervisory position.
  11. I don't think it is undeserved at all from my perspective. It was obsolete when it was installed on the Esprit. You cannot get parts for it - apart from the accumulator. When they actually need repair they are hard/impossible to take apart. It's overcomplicated and unreliable - it bleeds air into the system from all manner of places. There is no support from Delco Moraine and no places to send the units to be properly reconditioned. These systems are between 27 and 22 years old. My system had been checked over several times in a year: bled - both manually and using the Tech II, had a new pressure switch and still tried to kill me by simply failing at speed last year. I'm glad yous works - but many people start down a trail of woe that starts with the odd ABS light flash and end up as I did. I say good luck to anyone who has this system and I hope it lasts for years to come - but in the end, I believe they will all go the same way.
