  1. Other option is drop the floor pan a couple of inches, then the MX5 seats fit better. I would look at pictures of what others have done, or even better try to get to see some. there are a couple of GT6 with MX5 tombstone seats in them. Sure 1 of the owners is about6 ft.
  2. You need to be quick with some of them, it looks like it is all the "reference" parts that were hoarded years ago for possible later retooling, so just 1 or 2 of everything. Andwhen they are gone they are gone.
  3. Word needs to be spread far and wide about what products are rubbish, but no publication or club will do that for fear of unwelcome feedback from their advertisers. But unless that happens, nothing will change. The TRR spares thing may be the way to go. Or a list of "best" options against part numbers, maintained by a chosen group of people so it can not be influenced. Peer reviewed parts like medical stuff.
  4. Overdrive and reversing lights are all connected via the 2 wires from the loom, green and green with a tracer (can't remember tracer colour) One wire from loom is 12v, other goes back out to reversing lights. The 12 v feed goes to the reversing light switch, also to the inhibitor switch. Then from inhibitor to gear stick, back out of gearstick to solenoid. Out of solenoid on a loop black wire to a bolt on OD to provide the earth.
  5. I get the impression that there are lots of shysters in the offsetting business.
  6. Pete who used to frequent theTSSC NL meets used to have a rack he would fit to his GT6 onto which he would attach a full sized 6-man frame tent. Was about same size as the GT6 cabin. Looked like a snail. 🙂
  7. I have a complete (but dismantled) short MM engine that is good for recon. Crank gave low oil pressure. Bores were poor. All STD I think. And various other parts. North Essex. Cheers Colin
  8. A light right foot this time round, knowing it's could have been the most expensive ever?
  9. Still in back of garage, need to get it out and blow away the cobwebs.
  10. You can always do your own thing Don.
  11. It would be interesting to know how many of the causes of retirement could have been fixed at the roadside. I know at least 2 retirements were for rear driveshaft failure on an IRS car. 30 minute fix if you have a spare with you.
  12. There are ways round this, I had about 50 to get rid of. Max 4 per month at the local dump, well recycling centre, where everything goes in a hole in the ground. The policing is done by registration numbers, so take different cars, try to wear a different coat or hat. Then I took to sending the wife, 8 at a time. They would intercept her and say " you know you are only allowed 4 a month, try to remember that next time, would you like a hand unloading them" All gone in a couple of weeks. 🙂
  13. I have had a few sets of Maxxis over the years, latest set have now done 2 RBRR, they were free, so even better! Really good value for only if I had paid for them.
  14. But did you have people arriving before the earliest due time hoping you would not notice and sign the books?
  15. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Trintion-Manual-Changer-Portable-Vehicles/dp/B08R3ZD98B/ref=asc_df_B08R3ZD98B/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=463218305272&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=8399930018241817983&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=t&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9045047&hvtargid=pla-1151560449016&psc=1
  16. Oh for gods sake, last time I try and be clever and post from my phone. 🤔 Can anyone "de-Australian-ise" it?
  17. I think £750 may be RORO.
  18. Saw this in local Tesco filling Station. Never seen one before, was amazingly solid. Last on road in 79 apparently.
  19. There is £14.5k additional gift aid available to be added, so just under £103k collected. What a good show of support.
  20. I did do a few enquiries, mostly of a guy in the Morgan Owners Club, who had done just that, taking a dozen or so cars over for a few weeks driving round the US. Decided it is a holiday for a rich retired person. Container each way not cheap, seem to remember insurance wasn't cheap either.
  21. Where about are you based Howard?
  22. Fully home built, unless it happens to be the factory demonstrator. Don't think it is.
  23. Or a Moss Roadster, one has2 seats and the other 4
  24. Just thinking, could we just cut some lengths of hose from a scrap modern car?
