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

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.

Re: Time Warp Pi

Started striping back the engine bay last night, reason one for an epoxy primer when your your car is a long term project! https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1dZSTvbFuo1eCigZuKWBvJ6xnwZuGtXBU Newspaper when the car was primered back in 1996 and it didn’t hold up very well, it’s rusted under the coating....
