    REAR SPRINGS - What a transformation!!!

    Greetings Pop Pickers!! Well I've finally done the rear springs on Erik. What a transformation!!! Before the car was having serious handling problems, especially in the wet. It was way too easy to provoke some Roger Clark style cornering! My friend and I done both sides in just over an hour...

    I've just painted the sill covers on Erik, the correct Huntsman Brown, After trawling through colour chips, and getting it wrong once! (oops, expensive primer then!) I have discovered that RAL8014 Brown is a damn good match. Well at least to Erik's original Huntsman roof anyway. :D

    Head gasket issues

    Hi Chaps, Old Erik seems to have head gasket issues again............ I was wondering if there is an advantage to be had using the more modern type of Felpro head gaskets? The original right hand head gasket failed due to corrosion of the gasket at the rear most cylinder. I replaced them with...

    Noisy Brakes

    Hi Peeps, I have strange noises coming from the front brakes on my V8. During prolonged downhill braking, when the brakes get hot, the fronts start to make a low grumbling sound. Any ideas? I don't get any squeal, or any other noises. I was wondering if it might be anything to do with modern...

    A Suggestion

    Might I offer a suggestion for listing events in the magazine, or on the forum? If the post code of the event was listed, it would make it much easier for the membership to find out how far they are going to have to travel, and then do a route planner to find the event easily. We have started...
