Re: New cat time

For years I used some extremely cheap ramps used for caravanning that I then filled with expanding foam, so making them lightweight and extremely durable :thumleft: . Was amusing to watch the overfill of foam extruding out in a sausage from the filling hole :lol: . Simple things please simple minds ...

Re: Mail order rotary tester?

Jon, Title bit confusing as it suggests that you have a source of a rotary tester one can order via mail rather than you wanting to borrow one. There are a couple of people on here willing to send out their testers for use. Would respectfully suggest altering title to "Want to loan a compression tes...

Re: Yellow rx8s

There was one in Esex that I saw in the latter part of 03 that had been professionally trimmed with yellow leather and from the same dealer that Ploz (Richard, another founder member) and seen at about the same time as he picked his up and so probably November 03 approx.

Re: New Coilovers to replace Cusco’s

Try the EDFC in the space below the radio knob which is where mine was mounted it's really about the only sensible place given the criteria although mine was not the active variety. Also good choice on the Teins they served me well for at least 8 years and are still on the car now.

I was thinking of cycling there and putting the bike in the boot of the RX8. Second thoughts cycling down the A30/A303 is not very sensible so I think I'll give it a miss.
