  1. When I dropped in on mark he was trying to sell me the car (back when it was £35k!) & said it came with a choice of the bbs rims or Fuchs. Externally I don't mind the colour,as long as the bumpers were changed to blue, I'm sure they'd put a ducktail on it as well as they could sell the rsr one. For me the biggest problem was the blue interior, I just don't like them.
  2. tell you what, i should get 5 mins over the weekend, i'll pop the airbox cover & filter out & take a picture, if you could have a look & tell me what type you think it is i'd be very gratefull, we can take it from there
  3. yep i heard this too gary, thanks for the heads up. i think i'll leave it as is for the time being, the car is plenty fast enough & i'll do that when i get it serviced next year. the first eurohoon is lined up for early april so everything needs fettling in time for that
  4. ah well thanks for the heads up-i'll double check it with the huge SC book tonight when i get home, if i'm still unsure i'll let you know.
  5. yeah now i've read this thread but to my reading, i'm still not sure that it doesn't need one, as the above comment is in aparagraph warning that fitment of the pop off valve on the 81> models is more difficult as there is something the drill can hit?
  6. so with prevention being the best cure for future woes where is the best place to get one? also any hints & tips on fitting would be greatly recieved, i've heard that the 81 onwards engines are a little more difficult? my car has a k&n filter with a carbon airbox cover (that's open on the end), could this be why one wasn't fitted? does the air filter not let the pressure blow through it resulting in the explosion?? the airbox itself has all been replaced in the rebuild but i'm struggling to imagine why someone would fit the relatively cheap pop off valve when doing such a rebuild? answers on a postcard please chaps (car is an 81 SC by the way)
  7. hmmmm some nice rules & regs to go through with regards to the blue book there any chance of a sentance to sum things up?! as for the harness bar but roll cage it's interesting to note renault released the megane r26.r with 6 pont harnesses but no roll cage (it was an optional extra). like i said i'd rather not get into that debate but yeah, i don't plan on rolling the car!
  8. interesting replies lads, very interesting. without getting into the whole should you be in a car with harnesses but no roll over protection i'm thinking in the short term i may just go for the brey krause harness bar, the one that goes inbetween the seatbelt mounting points on the b pillars. does anyone use one of these? do they offset back so that the front seats can be fully moved back?
  9. hi guys, i was just wondering what the common thinking was on fixing your harnesses, specifically the shoulder straps. seeing as most rear cages don't come with a dedicated harness bar & my SC doesn't have rear seatbelts where do you anchor your shoulder straps to? are there any pre set fixings on the rear shelf/fire wall or do you need to be drilling dedicated fixings?
  10. Just thought I'd update this one as the car was over at my local Indy today & thankfully it was a cheap fix All that needed doing was the mixture control unit sensor plate, perhaps it had been knocked out of position by a miss fire but Mike Bainbridge got it all sorted. Mixture has been tweaked to improve drivability (I'm taking mikes word for it here as it's a bit of a black art to me?!) & all the hoses & pipes checked to make sure they're all in good nick. Happy days & luckily the weather stayed fine for a good blast back through the lakes
  11. yeah i'd say they suit gurds prey well actually.......
  12. i've got a superb picture of a duck on a gurds red 3.2, it looks amazing i'll dig it out when i can find it
  13. yep that's what i figured as well, though the owners manual does state that the passenger mirror control is optional, oh well, care needed when parking!
