    Looks like ya'll are now stuck w/ me even longer

    I like Alex and to be clear he was banned twice, but after the first time he came back slightly toned down and I thought he was a great contributor who brought out some very good topics. Unfotunately, there are some thin skin whiners on the other site and he does tend to push the rules a bit...

    TFL/Oystercards, thieving bas

    When I lived in London, my Oyster card was routinely overcharged, particularly when I would take the Jubilee line from St. John's Wood to Bond street and then the Central to Hanger Lane (Park Royale Guinness Brewery before we demolished it). Keep a close eye on the buggers and take them to...

    Wiring...I need help. :)

    Here are the wiring instructions for Painless. IMO, they are the best in the industry and will help you answer your questions. I believe the color codes are close if not identical to the EZ harness. I know I'll sound like a complete geek, but wiring is one of the parts I look forward to...

    Slk 55

    I don't know how similar they are, but I have a 2008 ML63 AMG and unfortunately, you can't turn it off using any of MB's many confusing panels, switches, and displays. I think a pair of cutting pliers might do it though!

    Run-n-Gun pics.....

    Dean, sorry to hear about your misfortune. I have to say, screw the idiot that smeared you. You will be pretty busy answering PMs and most of us want to know, when you could simply post the action here. I hope you get it sorted quickly.

    Mark Reid RCR-40 Build

    I also didn't like the hood retaining pins sticking through the rear clip, so I came up with a different approach. I got two sets of 1968 VW hood latches. They are well made and very cheap! Just over $30 for a pair of pins and latches from Airhead Parts. I made a mounting plate out of a piece of...

    Mark Reid RCR-40 Build

    I have not had a lot of time for the GT40 recently, but Mike and I worked on it for a couple of hours today. He was complainng that he hadn't heard it run since I fixed the idle issue. I also got a new video camera for my Birthday, so here you go: Here are a couple of pictures in the sun...

    Mark Reid RCR-40 Build

    Hell, I'd like to find a little time to actually work on it. I haven't touched it since I made the final panel alignment over a month ago. I'ts kind of taking up space at Ron's and I know he likes having it there, but it needs to come home so I can finish it. I only need like two weeks of...

    Howard, I believe that is actually, "bugger off you wanker." However, that is still too polite.

    engine and gearbox mounting question

    I have poly engine mounts and alloy tranny mounts and they work fine, although I only have a few miles on my car. Here are the ones I am using for Summit: Prothane Motion Control 6-503-BL - Prothane Motor Mounts - Instead of the cable, you could also use this torque link...

    Issue with Parts Vendor - Seeking Advice

    I saw your post and it sounds like you have tried to call, email, etc. I have purchased parts from him, including a complete stack injection system. I never had any problems at all and was very happy with the parts. I know several others who have no issues. Backorders can be a real issue in this...
