  1. Hi Ben, if you fancy a trip to Gloucester, I suspect that Tyre and Battery Centre will be significantly cheaper than Chelters.
  2. I did the job on my Vitesse a year or so back using the trim and clips both from Canley.  The trim I bought at the time definitely didn't have recesses and the clips could well have been the wider ones that Richard mentions above. I also managed it without the clip tool but with a block of wood to push the clips up instead.  Most of the wounds on my arms have since healed...
  3. No.  40A will be the maximum output and the car will only take what it needs from it. Think of it in the same way as a 13A mains socket being used to power a little USB charger.  13A is the maximum but the charger will only take far less. If the internal alternator regulator has gone then it may be putting too much voltage across the battery which could cause your issues, but your auto electrical place would probably have checked that before looking at the current.  If the battery voltage is less than 14v when running then the alternator is fine.  I'd go for the 10v regulator/stabiliser on the back of the speedo.
  4. My Vit 1600 is 1/4" throughout, which ties in with the diagrams on the Canley's website.  These suggest that Heralds and pre-MkII Vitesses were the same and MkII differed.
  5. Doug - are you saying that you didn't have an odd horse show nail in the back too?!
  6. You need to remove the bracket that holds the lower end of the boot strut and rotate the tank around the filler, lifting the front as you go.  It's far easier to do it than describe it though!
  7. I fitted the Baines DX73 ones a couple of weeks ago.  They work a treat, although the passenger footwell is filling up from somewhere else now.  The price of them virtually doubled when they added P&P on though.

  9. It may well have been a friend of mine who now has a Stag and used to have a Dolly Sprint, although he left Schlumberger about a year or so back.
  10. Thanks Matt, Dursley is certainly easier for me to get to than Bristol.  Friday morning is good and I can get a floor for Sunday night although I can't remember where off hand.  Can you put me down as a probable definite and I'll get back to you nearer the time to confirm.  Cheers, Dave
  11. Thanks Richard, I may take you up on that offer.  I'll let you know. Ted - I'm on the south side of the city itself, about 45 minutes from the Wye Dean meets if Google maps is correct.  I've wanted to go along to one of the meets, but it always seems that I've had something else going on the same evening.  One of these days I'll actually turn up though.
  12. Quick question.  Team 127's car and its owner are in Sussex and I'm in Gloucester.  For some reason he doesn't want to pop over and pick me up on his way to Knebworth.  So if I drive myself to Knebworth, am I able to dump the car there until Monday morning without it getting clamped, towed away or set alight? Failing that, is there anybody driving over from this general direction who could give me a lift?   Of course, if parking is available, I'd be happy to take somebody over if it helps. Thanks, Dave
  13. Doug, I know nothing about you or your car and you know just about as much about me, I've never done RBRR before, but I'd be happy to join you if you don't get a better offer. Cheers, Dave
  14. They're definitely 1/2" AF on the Herald and the catalogues suggest the Vitesse is the same.  Seems strange that nothing fits though.
