Re: Dreaded Clutch Problem (Sport350)

Glad it's over for you. Sounds like a nightmare!

Do you know what now happens to the car? Has the dealer been punished / penalised / (Punished is the wrong word but you know what I mean, has it cost them money for it all to have ended in your favour) #justbeingnosey

Re: Leven track day at Knockhill Thursday 18th April

In that case I'll likely pop over for a nosey as well.
I'll park the Honda somewhere in the shade out of the way ;)

Re: Garage Floors

Carpet squares! I spent ages preparing the floor surface and using the proper garage floor paint when I put the garage up but, like you say, it's great for a couple of years then starts lifting or flaking and goes from looking great to looking shabby really quickly. I got enough heavy duty contact s...

Re: The evora replacement

Looks lovely. In saying that, I'm so much out of the loop re BMW's that I hadn't even realised there was an M2. I'm still back in the M3 / M5 days. Oops!

Re: New(ish) car .. not really Lotus Content and a long wait..

This has got to be one of the best threads on our forum, ever, Jim [emoji41] Keep the pics and journal entries coming. Think you're being overly generous there Campbell :blackeye I've actually got a really detailed online info and build site on the go but have been asked by the builder to keep thin...

Re: New puppy.. cute doggie pic content

Thanks everyone. It's genuinely appreciated. We've actually had PJ cremated at a fairly local pet crematorium yesterday. It's the first time I'd really heard of, or given any thought to, that sort of thing. My previous 2 GSD's and 3 Danes are all buried around the garden in areas where we associated...

Re: New puppy.. cute doggie pic content

10 years eh. Not nearly long enough :( Typical PJ, no drama, no hassle, no pain. Got up to go for a wander round the garden and his heart just stopped. I was saying to Wendy today how it seemed like we never, ever, had to give PJ a telling off because he never really did anything you wouldn't want h...

Re: New(ish) car .. not really Lotus Content and a long wait..

I think the whole "retropower thing" is to do things a bit off-the-wall almost to be different. It's certainly interesting tho.

Meanwhile... back in the workshop...

Things are coming together nicely :)

Thanks for the update, although I'm afraid I agree with Campbell.

Re: New car with a Honda engine... err, it's a Honda

To be honest I’m usually stuck behind a tractor or a horse or even a pack of cyclists. Sunset is clearly when everyone else is at home.

Re: New car with a Honda engine... err, it's a Honda

The arch is at the side entrance to the houses at Letham Grange golf course, just off the wee road leading down from Coliston and yes, entrance to Crombie country park. The nice long straight road is the 1st thing I come to when leaving the house heading to Dundee. Sometimes living in the sticks is ...

Re: New car with a Honda engine... err, it's a Honda

I still really like it** ** Confession time: I've only done about 3k miles in it and about 800 of them were in a single round trip down south to see my Stratos build. :oops: But... Yeah, over on the Civic Type R forums there are links to every single review of the car and comparisons with other cars...

Re: New(ish) car .. not really Lotus Content and a long wait..

I got a few more pics yesterday of the gearbox and engine after the rebuild. I also got the bill!!! Yikes!! To be fair, it was sort of in line with what I should have expected based on the quotes at the beginning of it all about 2 years ago but then when you add in the costs of additional strengthen...

I think it looks ace apart from the driving lights.

Can wait to see it rolling around the Angus countryside Jim :thumbsup Poor choice of words for this particular car :lol: I must have missed something Ross :scratch I dont get it ? :) It's funny how many pics there are of them on 2 wheels, no wheels, broken, pranged, in bits, wrapped round trees and...
