Re: SP250 Rubber Gear stick boot

Hello Reedweaver I thought someone else might have commented on your request, and in light of that maybe I have got it wrong, but with all the 3 SPs I have known, none have had a rubber gear lever boot as original spec., rather just a leather trim tepee type construction that fits to the top lip of ...

Re: Water in my Doors

On my first SP (A Spec) I too experienced water remaining inside the door. As stated there are (and should be) drain holes, however on my car there was a sealing rubber around the inner door edge, that on the bottom covered the drain holes, I pulled away and water came rushing out, I reaffixed the s...

Re: Hardtop Lining

Thanks Howard, glad information was/is of use. The sides etc. are as before, and although I did not see the installation as the upholsterer took the hardtop away, I would guess that the central panel may be something like 1cm in thickness but this is a guess, I also assume that something like this w...

Re: Hardtop Lining

I have a hardtop in use on my SP, mainly as a few years ago it was in regular use as an everyday car to get to work etc. in conjunction with a couple of other 'classics' (AC3000ME & a MkII Mini Cooper), so more weather protection in the winter etc. was appreciated. The hardtop was re-lined at the sa...

Re: Video of the DLOC rally 2016 at St Ives

Just to say that I am glad I am not the only one not able to access, (although I would like to see of course!) I have tried since the original posting seeing the number of Views growing but with no comment about accessibility until now. The Facebook registration must be the reason as I too have resi...

Re: Listed on Ebay UK

I thought this car looked familiar (mainly things like red water pipes and red on front badge) and just for interest found that it sold at the South Western Vehicles Auction in October 2017 for £41k plus premium. So does it pay to buy, store away for a while and then sell on at a profit? Personally ...

Re: TAMAR BRIDGE - SPOTLIGHT NEWS 19/10/18

Yes, it is LXY427, after the last reply I looked at the clip again and tried the 'view as stills' option and that produces a very good and sharp series of individual frame shots which are very good (other that having the copyright logo over the top) and far easier to the read the number plate than b...

TAMAR BRIDGE - SPOTLIGHT NEWS 19/10/18

I was watching Spotllight news this evening and they had an item on the Tamar Bridge (costs of crossing etc.) and used as part of the item a Pathe News clip of when it opened in 1962, the clip included a smart convertible Daimler with a caravan attached . I did a search for Pathe News and came acros...

Re: Failure to proceed

The following may be of interest - unsinkable floats, said to be ethanol resistant and E10 as well. I have intended to explore a bit more when/if I have problems, having had to replace some brass floats on my SP with my spare set when the originals started to fill up with petrol. https://www.scparts...
