Sounds like a few of us will be local this evening so a good excuse for a pint.
Any preference on how to share contact details without it being public?

Just a little update.. 56 metres now sold, expressions of interest at various stages in another 49 metres.. first few orders posted out to UK and Australia!

The observant amongst you will have noticed that totals more than the amount of cloth I had made, and indeed enough to justify another production run via the shop.

Looking forward to handing over a few batches in person this weekend

Thanks Peter, but what does f/l mean? Also, is there a reason why we don't see these rear bumpers around? You would expect to see alot more if it was an option for both s1 and 2.

Hello, just spotted this very interesting topic. 
In the UK, the regulations for rear mounted high-intensity guard lamps were that if a single lamp was fitted it had to be offset to the driver's side of the car. So a centrally mounted unit would not be legal at that time. I think the rule was changed several years later.

Screen now being fitted next Thursday, a very busy man apparently.

Getting round to all those ‘I will sort that out later jobs’.

First up the doors not shutting/door seals to thick in places, cannot shut door without serious effort. I had hacked the door seals I had and made a right mess of them and the doors still did not close happily, however a bit of patience and I now have two closing doors which do not take a massive heave to close them, the seals are still however a mess and will need to be replaced, however I now have a good idea where they are too thick and need relieving.

I bought an under bonnet cover from Neil (supplied by Mark) a few years ago and finally have it fitted! Went in without any great drama and looks the part. Some of the pre made holes do not line up with the early bonnet, but that was simply resolved.

Lastly, installed a tracker, not a battery backed one, just a simple permanently powered one. I aim to pay the monthly cost when leaving it away from my home garage, but otherwise just leave it installed in the car. I know there has been discussions on here re which to use, but I was in two minds whether to even bother as although the car has significant meaning to me, not sure it classes as a most wanted as far as thieves are concerned. I think my neighbours TR6 is probably more interesting for them.

Gulp! I knew the chassis legs would be shot, but perhaps not quite how far gone they are.. that said, other areas of the car better than I expected so swings and roundabouts...

New post in the parts wanted thread in case anyone has a scrap shell to cut repair sections from

Front crossmember better than expected along with the panels behind the grille

Windscreen scuttle rust opened up.. repair panel is a bit of a bitsa but hey ho, better than not having it

I attached a Brodit mount to the Ashtray which clears the heater controls and will stop the phone wandering off during cornering. I have the S2 FL Dash so my Alpine unit is set far back and hidden by the blanking plate when not in use.
It is connected to a 4x 50watt amp behind the spare wheel and 4 proper speakers in the right RMS range.

I did post some pics in the members cars space.

If I push the ashtray back in it locks the phone solid, so even during a “slightly more spirited drive” the phone stays put. But yes it does cover the heater controls.
I use a magnetic mount in the T6 (daily drive) and it works a treat so yes, that is certainly a possibility.

Very neat solution except for the iPhone flapping about covering heater controls? Can you get a spare cover and drill it/glue a magnetic mount?
