Title: What would you like?
Post by: markwast on January 01, 2009, 11:08:22 PM
Hi and welcome to my world at Beta Boyz  :D.
I have added this topic to get an updated look at what you want from us.
Please bare in mind that we have minimal budgets and things must be feasible and some changes to spec might be needed.

eg VX rear spoilers, we were quotes 1000's of pounds for this so might have to make do with glass fibre instead.

Or alternatively if you can help us achieve any of these requests , please let us know with your ideas.

Thanks for listening, Mark :)

I'm REALLY struggling to find the rear tail lights for my S2 '78 Spider  :(
I know, everybody who owns a Beta Spider sooner or later does, but still it'd be great to have availability of those.

Hi , yes the spider rear lights would make a very good project indeed , but toolong costs would not justify this, would you pay over 500 for a pair of rear lights? I am sure 99% of spider owners wouldnt.

Mark,

I can't for love or money find the green centre badges for the standard alloys on my spider (I'm presuming they're supposed to be green here !)

It's be great to have a new set to go with my (soon to be) refurbished wheels. I don't know but I'm guessing you could just do the centres as a self adhesve badge.

Mark,
what kind of tooling/manufacturing technology are you talking about? I was thinking of transparent ABS on vacuum casting technology to save both on tooling and parts costs.

What I really need are the steel water pipes on the back and top of my 1978 2.0 carb. engine in my spider. Mine are corroded from neglect and are working by the power of prayer and sacrifice of Honda Civics. Any chance or is there a need outside my own requirement?
Cheers,
Frank.

Title: Beta front strut top mounts
Post by: rutthenut on September 29, 2010, 01:26:47 PM
Believe something is happening with these, but needed for Stratos replica guys (like me) as well as Beta boys.

Compbrake provided a spherical bearing top mount, but it did not fit :(

I'm also looking for the steel water pipes on the top and sides of my 1979 Lancia Beta 2000cc.
Are these still available and if so how much are they.

Replacement coolant expansion tanks.

The rectangular version rather than the kidney shape ideally as they are easier to shape from a manufacturing perspective (i guess)

Highly sought after these days and more and more are showing signs of cracking due to age/fatigue. So availability is an issue and I've been searching for similar type of tanks than can be used with light modification.

Record in france appear to still list them this is the cheapset price i've seen whether the supplier is reliable or not i've no idea just what I came across

this supplier also list sachs rears listed as full struts

The inserts listed are for 1300 and have a different part number to the 1600 - so can anyone confirm they are definately compatible?

It's a bit of an expensive punt if they turn out to be incompatible.... it's not like I could move them on easily

This looks good, so I think I'll give it a punt  ;D

Did not think to go and check on Record's own site and look up their catalogue.

I will be in France fishing in July so I may collect if they are close enough - or I'll have them sent to my friends who live there and own the lake.

fingers crossed then!! I presume you didn't want spax which seems to be the home grown option

No, the car has to be completely standard. So OEM standard or as close too as possible.

I want the handling to be as it was originally.

I take your point gonna be one hell of a nice motor when it's finished I'll be seriously jealous I love the purity of design of the early ones, I'm not too bothered with the originality of  my VX as it is already well past redemption so if it is put back on the road that is miracle enough for me
