Fix my ****ing engine - although I think it probably needs doing before 2018! Didn't see you over the weekend Steve, I ended up co-driving with Chris Gleason. How did you get on?

Replace the sills, probably swap more rust for metal than expected, fit the overdrive and most likely an engine rebuild as well.


Acclaim - fully working and on the road
13/60 Herald - mx5 powered and other such fun things, legal enough...
Mk1 2000 - it's still alive, just sleeping
Expert 815d - the slug

If in doubt, do up until you hear the crack and then go another 1/4 turn to ensure tightness.

At the moment, it'll be a case of new radiator and cooling fan, and flush out the cooling system, and fit new exhaust nuts.

However, as it's two years away, I can see there being a lot more to do in the mean time!

Get one of the other cars ready!
Oh, yes, fix the wiper linkage and that annoying brake chirp. That's all for the GT6, but it's now done four and I'm too old to spend a whole weekend packed into such a small space so close to the ground with no suspension to speak of, so next time has to be one of the others.

In 2018 I plan to use my Mk1 Pi, so:

Resolve the offside rear vibration, tidy the bodywork up and start reading up on the Lucas Injection system.

Oh, and start saving up for petrol now

Fit a smaller steering wheel so I can get my legs underneath and work the accelerator and brake without having my right leg bent to one side all the time! Find a way to improve the handling without ruining the ride comfort, improve the brakes with vented discs and larger calipers, replace the cheap tyres fitted with ones that grip, replace the exhaust before it falls off, which it is about to.. oh and persuade Mrs CT that taking part again would not be a waste of money and time..

I've been thinking about this over the last couple of days......
This years run other than a distributor failing and a water pump that's looking poorly it's been pretty much trouble free. The distributor showed no signs of failing it just stalled and that was it.......swapped and off we went!

So next years entry...... Polish it so stickers don't damage the paint and go I guess?

All depends on which car we decide to use.

The TR ran fine so just a service and maybe a HID light upgrade. It could do with the bodywork tidying up but that wouldn't stop it being used.

The Moss is still lying in bits in the garage, need to sort out an engine and upgrade the electrics then put it all back together again.


1982 TR7 FHC "Sprint"
Moss Roadster - upgrade now in progress
1985 Yamaha FZ750 -- looking to replace with something new
1997 Vauxhall Calibra 2.5 V6 in need of a little TLC -- looking to sell it
2000 Porsche Boxster S -- mid life crisis?  
2004 Skoda Superb 1.9TDI 130 Auto
Vauxhall Nova 1.6 16v stage rally car - NOW SOLD
1988 Vauxhall Nova 1.2 merit (now stored inside, future classic?)
You can never have too many toys!!

2012 RBRR  TR7 "Sprint" car 16 (completed)
2014 RBRR Moss Roadster car 72 (retired)
2016 RBRR Moss Roadster TR7 "Sprint" car 123 (completed)
2018 RBRR Moss or TR7 --- choices

Decide if we are going to do it again (probably...).

Remove the custom stainless exhaust, make sure there's no chance of it ever finding it's way near a car ever again, and fit one that actually fits and won't fall off 12 hours in and end up chained to the axle to stop it ending up in the road should it do it again.

Might replace the clutch hydraulics as they behave a bit oddly (but reliably), and go through the brakes as well- the exhaust bashed the soild brake line across the axle when we ran with the back half missing so that needs replacing and the pads will probably need doing by now! Driver's seat would benefit from a new foam base but it's not too bad, and the indicator stalk needs looking at since it now sounds the horn when you indicate left...

That said we might do it in something different next time.

Fix the yellow stag (which I had planned for 2016, but only got as far as looking underneath!) This should involve:
lots of welding
3.9 efi Rover v8
4hp22 auto box
BMW diff
CDD CV drive shafts and hubs
Jag brakes on front
BMW e30 servo
improved seats
fitting a hood.
superforma  wheel spacers
Rover 800 16" wheels
LPG conversion
HID headlamps x4
front and rear foglights

So yes  - that's basically my saloon, but auto in a convertible shell!

It would be nice to have it done and use it for 10CR 2017 as a practice trip, but in reality we'll probably be fitting the diff on the Thursday before the start like usual!
