forgot about the colour differences, its the green and gold one he has.
I do have BRAND NEW NOS 85-86 green and gold wickens badges. Might have 3 left.

If it is green and gold, also means it is not an 87. It is an earlier produced car sold off as a later reg one.

Re: Misc parts wanted 87 SE

US is no issue. Furthest I have posted so far is New Zealand :mrgreen: Also with reference to the wickens badge (which I love and think looks better than the boring round one :lol: ). If it is an 87 it should probably be black and gold Christmas pudding shape. 85-86 had a few cars with Wickens Green...

Re: Misc parts wanted 87 SE

Left hand mirrors WERE common as muck when I was selling them off for 30 pound each. Right hand side from in the cab due to being a uk car and drive on the left.... Unicorn poo. I still have one left hand side left over when I was digging around last week. I kept one back for a project. It's brand n...

Re: Excel wiper motor

Re: Excel wiper motor

Hi Pete

I have one if you still require it?
Haven't been on for a while... Very busy at the moment.
You can get hold of me in the usual ways if you need it in a hurry.

Cheers
Kieran

Re: Propshaft

I have put 2 props out of phase. The standard prop is barely capable of remaining in position as standard. The construction being sleeved relies on the internal rubber sandwich to grip between the inner and outer sleeve. This rubber layer reduces NVH in the drivetrain however as rubber ages and peri...

Re: Excel SE wanted

Project or runner? I have a green one sitting in stock sans g.box and engine but everything else is there. It was a runner about 18 months ago but sacrificed its drivetrain to another car that had better paint - drivetrain went into Mildred. Its BRG with dandruff lacquer not even head and shoulders ...

Re: Engine mounts

I am pretty sure I have a few of these left. Ebay prices are exaggerated due to costs. Its always better to ask direct as I can manipulate prices depending on what else you require. Bearing in mind I have just moved to a new premises I would have to do a stock take. Needless to say if you needed som...

Re: Gearbox Rebuild?

Hi Richard Just seen this. The kits from gear 5th are what I bought in bulk a while back. The kit comes with a fair amount but you will need ore than is in that kit (sold them quickly). When you pull the internals from the box you will likely find the 3-4 shift fork is cracking and has worn. The reb...

Re: Excel register

Bear in mind chaps even though you have "owned" the vehicle for X number of years it is no guarantee that you are the actual owner. The V5 does not show ownership it merely represents a keeper or curator of said vehicle. With the V5 now being electronic and no signature required and with the new for...

Re: It started with a brake pipe

Been there, done that and the t-shirt didn't fit. I looked into going the cut and shut carbon prop route with an RX8 prop. The manufacturing process is done as a one piece winding around the entire propshaft and wider at the ends where more strands are utilised. The ends are strengthened, thicker an...

Re: It started with a brake pipe

On any car over roughly 10 years old. Mileage is not an indicator of good care or health.
Have seen a few genuine low mileage cars that haven't been used and have had issues as a result of their sedentary lifestyle.

Re: It started with a brake pipe

This comes back to the vulcanised v poly mount we were talking about before.....
I was thinking something around 50 to 60 shore but in poly to resist cracking but replicating the rubber in terms of NVH reduction. (Sorry for the hijack).

Re: It started with a brake pipe

I also have a set of new bushes for the diff carrier for copying. Again in the process of producing a set for poly-bushing.
Brand new ones donated by Don some time ago.
