Re: 2 SPs at H&H Duxford Auction 19 June

As a result of the Forum recent downtime the update from Twickers (I think) following on the auction has been dropped, but I was going to comment that £16,333 (inc. comm) for the 1959 car seems cheap and a bargain for someone, not that I looked at it in person, especially given the prices asked for ...

Re: Availability of 60th Anniversary SWAG

For the details of the shirts etc. in the Driving Member, it states they come with 'an appropriate embroidered logo' - just a thought but might there be more interest if an example of the logo was shown/available somewhere.

Re: HD6 Carb flange gaskets x3

On a slight tangent, as the point re the 3 gaskets seems to have been covered, and I was some while ago going to comment on what I found when fitting new gaskets to my SPs carbs. (see the picture). I have no idea why the main block spacer had cut-outs and as can be seen the other gaskets were gradua...

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...
