  1. No engine management light comes on and the lack of a cat has never been mentioned at the MOT centre that I use. The van is a 2005 Scudo Jtd
  2. I had the cat cut off my van back in 2013, this was the night before I had its MOT booked. Had to fit an aftermarket one in a hurry to get it MOTd and then removed it and fitted a straight through piece of pipe, it's gone through its MOT like this ever since passing it's emission test every time
  3. NHBC=No House Built Correctly
  4. If Lotus are holding the deposits, will that mean you will have a contract with Lotus themselves rather than the dealer and therefore direct liability for any issues etc.
  5. Hi John, the show sounds great, but I have a feeling those dates won't work for us as I believe that is possibly still during school time, my wife works in a school and is only able to have time off during the school holidays. I won't write it off just yet as it is possible that she won't be working in a school next year. Your offer of secure storage to enable us to tour a lot easier is much appreciated. Thanks again Regards Dan
  6. Hi John, hope your trip to pick up the m100 went well. I could be interested in a trip to Scotland but would have to tow the race car as it's currently not road legal. It would also depend upon when the show is and my work commitments and if I could combine it with a bit of tourism whilst I'm there, my wife has always wanted to go to Scotland. Let me know when and where and I'll think about it. Regards Dan
  7. You could try tridentracing.co.uk they might be able to help, they are a supplier to Motorsport teams and clubmen racers etc. Usually very helpful based by the main entrance to Silverstone last time I used them but have possibly moved to a new unit
  8. Heading towards Tring, looking very good, I was in work van going in the opposite direction
  9. Edpm rubber, can be bonded in layers, it's what I made a new diaphragm for my Discovery driver's seat when I suddenly found myself sitting on the floor😆
  10. Check out the wheel nuts that are available from Demon Tweeks
  11. I can't remember if this has been brought up on here, but could the rise in clots also be partly attributed to many people now working from home spending hours at a time on computers rather than getting up to speak to people in the office or sales reps that would go out and visit customers, it could just be a perfect storm of conditions combining to cause this.
  12. The drop links were supplied by Spyder who made the original lower front wishbone modification for me, I then carried out the Excel alteration after the trunnion snapping.the links are flat metal figure of 8 plate with cup washers welded both sides top and bottom.they bolt to the original mounting on the lower link and go through a hole in it to pick up the ARB the cups take the original ARB bushes from memory
  13. Hi Pete, the top wishbone links are rose jointed and adjustable for camber. The anti roll bar has a drop link from the lower wishbone, this is what helped when I broke the trunnion as the roll bar rubbed on the track rather than the bodywork, it just scuffed the cill and the wheel rattled around on the wheel arch.
  14. I've grafted the end of the Excel front lower link on to my Eclat ones this allows me to use the Toyota uprights and I've also got 310mm dia brake disks. I carried this work out after snapping a trunnion at Brands Hatch. I have to say the car still handled quite well with only 3 wheels and the ARB dragging on the track.
