  1. That's the thing I meant, wasn't sure what words to use lol
  2. I'm sure mine has a thin pressed metal washer/reducer that sandwiches between wheel and spacer that grips the horn push.
  3. So do you need to get to a point when the fan only really kicks in at idle or extreme pressing on situations. I.e. you don't it on all the time?
  4. You're brutal for brutalism.

    Cool vids

    This guy is very entertaining, just working my way through his channel.
  6. I think most pads now have an anti squeal backing already on there, so no need for the shim. I guess its just down to which brand you choose, I haven't fitted any anti squeal shims for years. In fact I think the last think that did was my Beetle from 20 years ago.

    Reg check says 1966 Jaguar so I guess it's a Jaguar based replica as the real things were built in the mid 50s. Still I certainly wouldn't say no.
  8. I've had a few low level bids. 18 days to go so I suspect the big boys to come bidding before then.
  9. Screw it to the back of your headlamp bowl, reinstate the hose and job done. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1974-1989-Year-Porsche-911-Fuel-Tank-Expansion-Bottle/193463985602?epid=648119142&hash=item2d0b5a25c2:g:QfYAAOSwpXdeoKAo
  10. The evap tank is separate to the water res and tucks right out of the way. Not sure why you would ditch it. Certainly no weight saving.
  11. I retained the standard fuel evap tank on my backdate, it all fits in there fine, it's the main screen wash tank that doesn't fit with a backdate. I did relocate the bracket from my old IB wings onto my new pre 73 wings. The bracket could be easily DIY'd if need and installed with self tapers onto the back of the headlamp bowl, although I welded mine on. Is the non return gubbins still installed on the filler neck inside the boot.
  12. I'm liking the install. I'm no engineer tech but won't that thermostat get a wrong read due to heat transfer from the engine/cam cover? Also if you plan for early car install the rear bumper/valance area is much shorter than an IB so the cooler would need to mount higher into the wing space.
  13. I've never seen a method, technique or piece of software that can substantially increase image size and its corresponding quality (dpi). It's like trying to clean up a VHS copy of a copy of a copy of Smokey and the Bandit. What ain't there in the first place never will be. It might look fine A3 size on some decent photo paper though. I'd expect the copyright lies with Porsche archives. You might actually find approaching their press office could yield a positive result. Especially if you drop in your credentials.
  14. This article says it's from Porsche. https://crazyaboutporsche.com/en/post/fast-forward-the-24-hours-of-le-mans-1971/ https://newsroom.porsche.com/en/history/historisches-archiv-10885.html
