Re: strange issue with pad knock-off

Pad knock off is usually found when on track high speed cornering. If you are suffering at low speed then something is moving relatively easy. Maybe a flexible brake line too short putting pressure on calliper.

Re: Poly bush group buy

If you add up the dimensions of the outer sleeve and the polybush it comes to the same length of the inner sleeve. The inner sleeve needs to protrude both ends. Looking at hints to there installation the inner sleeve should protrude by 0.02" (0.5mm). I can see the dimension 1.5+ but how much +? When...

Re: build manual

Not sure how far the build has progressed before you purchased it. I'm sure Matt has a basic build manual which you could follow.
Stylus kits have been built how there owners view them. There has always been differences between each car built depending on there preferences.

Re: Fuel tank removal

The easiest way would be to fill the tank with water and into the filler neck.
Then use your oscillating saw to cut through pipe. You will get a bit of water in the boot but no sparks.
Drain tank and remove.

Unassuming Hero

Watching a program called 'Saved' on ITV last night. The end of the show gave a clippit of next weeks episode.
Lo and behold a familiar face appeared. Regulars of the Liphook monthly meeting might already know who this hero is.

Re: Number plates

Hi Rob, according to the DVLA all number plates on vehicles registered from 1st Jan 1973 should be of reflective material. They were an option from 1968. Hope this helps.
