  1. Karls

    Soft top

    I’d be interested in that.
  2. Yes, just the silencer section. It’s a 2016 350 so hopefully nothing too corroded yet.
  3. I managed an under tray off and diffuser fitting with the car on axle stands so is an exhaust easy enough?
  4. Alright I give up...are you Batman?
  5. Yep, money for old rope really. The seller supplies the spiel and photos. They ‘suggest’ a reserve price which is aimed to ensure it sells. Then sit back and rake it in. Simple!
  6. Can I join in and add my list? I don’t recall the model years of ,many of them so apologies! Mk3 Triumph Spitfire - my first car and one I forever seemed to be underneath of...usually in the middle of Winter on a freezing garage floor. I filled the boot with logs one Winter to get more grip over the rear wheels in the snow but one particular day whilst driving there was a loud bang where I suddenly saw the rear near side wheel overtaking me at 40mph complete with half shaft and the car tilted up so the offside front was off the ground. No brakes so just slid to an eventual halt. Driver’s
  7. I used some home-made wooden ramps and drove the car up on them to give me the clearance needed.
  8. It’s a tricky one this. I like to cover my car up after a wash when it’s dust free but the only way for me to dry the brakes is to take it slowly round the block, clutch fully out with left foot braking whilst on the accelerator. It does the trick and ensures discs remain rust free with no sticking pads. A quick spray on the bodywork with some Bouncer’s Done n Dusted and light wipe then cover on.
  9. I agree, it’s certainly how it looks and feels. I’m sure once I take it back and he can see it properly rather than on a video he’ll spot his mistake.
  10. Thanks for replies guys. It’s a 2016 350 Sport. The harness bar and fitting kit was bought from Seriously Lotus. Harnesses were bought from MSAR. I’m not sure what subframes I have.
  11. Had my harnesses installed earlier this week whilst still enabling use of the seatbelts. The passenger side retention buckle by the handbrake is nice and tight but the driver's side buckle is loose. The bolts is tight though. I know springs/spacers were removed to allow the extra thickness of the harness lap belt. I've been told this movement is normal by the installer but I don't think it is. I video'd the movement but the file is too large to upload. The lateral movement from side to side makes you think the bolt isn't tight. Surely this isn't right?
  12. Hmm....so what is the solution on later models as my Exige suffers from the same.
