Re: Lancaster insurance

This is on hold for the time being with having bought the Corsa.

Though that could change if I sell the Jeep.

Re: Another car on the drive

Now the Corsa is here there's no need for me to investigate further. If it's not being used much as before I can accept it's faults.

I've only used it once since getting back from York last week.

See how long it lasts before something ruins this plan.

Re: Another car on the drive

Definitely built for wafting then if it had no ARB at all.

It's a live axle with coil springs.

Re: Another car on the drive

The guys in the know say while the ride can be improved it will never be like a car with independent suspension. I've decided I'm not chasing it and spending to get nowhere. Then ultimately resenting it. Been there before. The route to work is impossible to improve without doing a huge detour of an ...

Re: Another car on the drive

It's made a massive difference but it's still not a truly pleasant experience driving it on the undulating back roads I need to use for work. Road holding at speed is far better than before. Much above 70 and you could start to feel the car becoming unstable. Up to *** ish and it's now exactly as yo...

Another car on the drive

After lots of thinking and changing my mind we've picked up this. https://i.postimg.cc/p9V4h8gR/IMG-20190529-153531.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/w3RPm9by/IMG-20190529-153600.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/0Mb4Zvk4/IMG-20190529-153608.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/hfxHHKLW/IMG-20190529-153617.jpg https://i.postimg....

Re: R24 AAB - Vitesse Coupe - immaculate - 189,900 miles

My Jeep has a random entry in it's history like that. Though the opposite way to this car.

2 September 2016 63,753 miles

4 September 2015 124,918 miles

14 October 2014 54,030 miles

Must have mixed the paperwork up when entering it?

It has a Rover engine at least

Spotted this on Facebook, no connection to me. Just made me smile finding out it has a Rover V8 in it. :) My dad did something similar 25 years ago. https://i.postimg.cc/5XBW1cng/Screenshot-20190522-230425.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/nCQtR9m6/Screenshot-20190522-230440.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/87QgqkBs...

Re: Thunderbird 2 & The Green Machine

I always hated bleeding clutches on 800s.

I tried all the proper ways, the best results I had were always repeated fast pumping of the pedal and locking off the bleed nipple when I thought I'd seen the last of the air. Lots of wasted fluid but always better pressure/feel than the proper ways IMO.

Re: Jeep talk

The ARB arrived yesterday and I've fitted it today. Easy job aside rusty bolts. Definitely better, now wondering whether to upgrade the front. Waiting on a response from the experts. Spot the difference, the old could be moved by hand which shows how weak it is. https://i.postimg.cc/VJhy7P8H/IMG-201...

You've done well not to bend the pipes.

Like anything, it's easy with practice. :D

Re: Lancaster insurance

Good to know.

I haven't made my mind up which way I'm going yet.

I've been getting quotes of £140-190 for a lot of early 90s cars.

The outcome of the ARB being fitted today will play a part in what I decide to do.

Lancaster insurance

Anyone with them?

I have a potential plan in mind and have had very cheap quotes with them.

Just wanted to see if anyone was using them and what they thought?
