Re: ANNOUNCING THE WINTERBOTTOM RUN 2022

Is there a chance of adding one to the run please? I wasn't sure I'd have a viable car for it but now am sure that I will. Yes Andy, no problem. Do you also want to join us for dinner and visit Classic Team Lotus on Saturday morning? I believe we can fit you in, but I need to know before Monday. Ch...

Re: Electric PAS pumps

Thanks Pete - good to know the Saxo pump works. I think it will use less energy as the pump will only cut in when needed rather than all the time - if I’m right! Anyway a lot less costly than an electric pas conversion and easier to fit. Cheers, Richard Edit: just found this article which explains t...

Electric PAS pumps

I have recently seen a hydraulic PAS pump mounted remotely instead of being powered by the engine. I’d like to start a discussion on the pros, cons and feasibility of this approach. There seem to be quite a few systems that have been fitted to production vehicles. One I have seen available secondhan...

Re: Wanted Excel in VGC

Checked the ad in CLN - it’s one owner from new - doesn’t specify lady. Registration letters are CCA so not Norfolk afaik.

Re: NEC Classic Motor Show 2022 11-13 November

Thanks guys for your offers. We now seem to have a strong hand of four Grand Tourers available with a couple of options. Look forward to seeing your Elite on the Winterbottom Run, Andy! Should be able to confirm everything by then.

Cheers, Richard

Re: ANNOUNCING THE WINTERBOTTOM RUN 2022

I have just emailed out the arrangements and itinerary for the Run, so if you think you are coming but for some reason don’t have an email, for goodness sake let me know as it is easy for information to fall through the cracks between the forum, Facebook and email. It sometimes does my head in keepi...

Re: ANNOUNCING THE WINTERBOTTOM RUN 2022

I’m going to be putting out a formal itinerary and schedule early next week. The rally plaque stickers are here and I will also be asking people if they want them posted out or collect them on the day. I’m sorry if you have found communications less than adequate, but I’m doing the organisation unpa...

Re: Binnacle Repair (not for the purists)

A good and (for me) timely post Peter. My Elite of course has the earlier dash style, and the leather has cracked on the console ‘hump’ so I’m trying to figure out a less radical solution than removing the dash. I was looking at trying to do a leather repair in situ using ‘iron on’ clothes repair li...
