  1. Rotate the fuses in their sprung holders as a first step. This should be a regular maintenance task! Mark
  2. Hmm, while I agree with the various comments above, I would expect a professional to get closer than the pictures indicate. Is it Zinnmetallic? I've painted various panels and patches on both my 3.2 and SC at home and while not a perfect match it's not bad. No messing with undercoat tones, paint just mixed to code and different paint systems, e.g. the flat lid on the SC IMHO the spraying method, i.e. how the metallic particles lay, has a more significant effect than slight tone differences.

  3. Phil, I know the date is in an older post, but new viewers may not find it, or muddle it with other suggested dates. May I suggest a new post with date, day, time, location clearly in bold letters. Mark PS, I'm in
  4. Not me this time, Jonny Hart had problems with new rear T bars going soft. I can add some experience though. My 3.2 has second hand 26mm turbo rear T bars which it has run for about 7 years of hard use (including track) without issue. If second hand bars are blemish free i.e. no scratches at all in the paint on the shafts there is a good bet they will last. They are handed though (marked with a "L" or "R" on the end face) and putting them on the wrong side will be a problem. Mark
  5. Yes it's hollow, but you would be a fair distance away from the linkage where your red cross is. This would make it more difficult to reach/align the switch with the shaft. If I was to do it again, I would take the same approach as last time and make a "bung" to fit in the hole that carries the switch. Mark
  6. Won't work, to get all the gears the linkage has to be adjusted to do just that, not to a preferred position. I would suggest extending the gear lever itself. Mark
  7. Even 10:00 is way too early. You will get much less traffic later on, even the traffic around Greenwich and the A2 was only moderate around 15:00 and we are dropping that bit. Mark
  8. Don't bother, it's there! If it was not, the engine would stall as soon as you take the oil filler cap off. The restrictor keeps the engine from stalling so you can check the oil level with the engine running. The dip in revs you describe is normal with the restrictor in place. Mark
  9. My 3.2 has Super pro (engine and gbox) and my SC has the club sport/cab ones (engine and gbox). Both set ups suit the respective cars and my use of them. Form your what you say you are trying to achieve, I would recommend going with the club sport ones on both engine and gbox. Mark
  10. The vast majority of the sludge will be just that, oil sludge (separated additives, carbon, etc). To confirm what is sludge and what is magnetic particles you can put the drain plug in jam jar of petrol and give it a shake, the sludge disperses and you can look at what's left attached to the magnet with a magnifying glass.

  11. You have to live dangerously to prove your alive! Last year, March 2020, we only got back from St Lucia a couple of days before they closed all the hotels. All adds to the adventure.

  12. +1,000 Mark p.s. Had my second jab 3 weeks ago, so now better than bullet proof. p.p.s. Still got a deferred Mexican hol for late this year, a deferred Jamaican hol for next spring and a new booking for a family Mexican hol next year
  13. Sleeping on the job Phil, I post it up/link it every time a newbie calls a Carrera tail a Tea Tray Agree it's a good looking tail, but IMHO a bit too wide for a narrow body car. Mark
  14. None of the above. If you look at the rubber lip you can see it is much wider than most which indicates to me it is a '74 Carrera 3.0 RS type. Use this link for the best tail round up I have seen (posted many times before, but not for a while) https://members.rennlist.com/imcarthur/tail tales.htm Mark
  15. True to some extent, but the reason I had some issues was that they were undertaking engineering work to increase the capacity. I would guess that most of the properties in my locality are already connected to fibre so probably already somewhere near saturation already (both in number and use during "lock down", with all the working/schooling from home). The user density also makes it commercially viable for the various IPs to keep improving speed and capacity. Bigger problem is "WiFi" wars with the IP supplied equipment all defaulting to the same congested channels and interfering with e
