    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 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!

    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...

    Headlight Options

    I put LED headlight and rear bulbs. Probably the cheapest and easiest improvement I made, and it was a huge improvement. Here is the link to the thread with what I purchased on Amazon and also the converters for the headlight bulbs. It should have everything you need (I hope!)...

    Please Post your location

    It is always interesting to know who is in your neck of the woods. I think I spoke with you Howard 3 or 4 years ago at Blackhawk Cars and Coffee (sadly defunct). I had my newly acquired CAV (blue with offset white stripe). You provided some useful advice at the time.
