    LED headlights

    I left the existing lights but switched the bulbs to LEDs, headlights and rear lights. One of the easiest and best changes I have made. Very much night and day. I almost hit a black pig at 70mph in the dark (one or two inches off!). That was a big driver to find a solution. It ended up being a...

    SouthernGT No6

    I found these screens to be really nice for the carbs https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00Z5M8M62/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_GnGPDbP88Y6KT The price is really reasonable and they work well and look great. The only thing is to bend the tabs out so that they are a tight fit. I had one jump out and had to get...

    Early CAV brakes - type? pads?

    I know that the emergency brake calipers are Gen 4 Camaro, with the back cut off to fit. These are terrible!! Not sure if anyone else has used a better solution. I know that doesn't help on the other calipers, sorry!

    Fire Extinguisher Mounting

    A Lotus Esprit. Two fire extinguishers were not enough. Timing really is critical. Nobody was hurt. This was during the California Targa this last weekend.

    looking for a pair of slip on collectors 1 3/4" to 3"

    Hi Marcus, I might have something in stainless. I bought a pair, but screwed up on sizing. i bought a replacement set and was supposed to return the initial ones for a refund, but i have to confess to laziness and didn't get round to it. They are really nicely made but I need to check the sizes...

    Anybody using scissor lift to SLC

    Larry, that was my initial reaction!! The look of it..... I haven't made any purchase yet. I was thinking of a two post lift, but the portability is the big sell for me. I have looked for reviews and it seems like the one post lift does well. Engineering wise, there is no reason I can see it to...
