Re: Time Warp Pi

Hello lee, I think when I upload to google drive it can have a delay. Also my iPad run out of battery halfway through posting. I always end up editing everything 3 or four times because I do wonder about my grasp of written English sometimes. Anyway I think we’re up and running now. Hopefully can ma...

Re: Time Warp Pi

Well I decided to have a go at spraying the engine bay myself so I would love to say the pictures are my first attempt but they ain’t. It went tits up! Could have blamed this guy. https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1MCiOcrjfSxB9XqFmO2UMbBUo9gJB_DV1 But no it was mine. The top coat when it dried started ...

Re: Tatton Park - Classic and Performance Car Spectacular June 2018

Buy the best you can afford I paid £2500 for the red pi 5 years ago in bits, people would probably say thats madness, but restoration costs a lot of money. My Valencia Pi was probably a dead cert scrapper or a ring road bumper car and to restore it cost me more than usual raised eyebrows of a £8000 ...

Re: Tatton Park - Classic and Performance Car Spectacular June 2018

The Pi and S should have mastic pads behind to hold it away from the body work to stop the vibration. Maybe my context was wrong, mine had mastic substance behind it.

Re: Tatton Park - Classic and Performance Car Spectacular June 2018

Every triumph rusts there then, because the number plate is put there on the 2000. The Pi and S should have mastic pads behind to hold it away from the body work to stop the vibration. Doubt if the dealers did that with the reg plates.

I say the S should but Leyland loved a cut back.
