Sunset

07 Sep 2021

I was out on a drive recently taking advantage of the amazing September sun that we’ve been having recently and couldn’t help but stop & take a pic of the amazing sunset.

Holland Sports Car Show

12 Aug 2021

I went to a car show yesterday and it’s the biggest I’ve been to for the last 2 years thanks to Covid. There was a nice balanced mix of interesting classic cars there and future classics including a very rare MG XPower SV! The weather was great and there was a nice relaxed friendly atmosphere with a bar and bbq. My MG got quite a bit of interest from people gathering around trying to work out what the engine swap was from. I got some positive comments too which was nice. On the whole, a very enjoyable evening.

Rear Disc Brakes

When I first had my car MOTed after the rebuild, I had problems with the rear drum brakes. I ended up replacing my new drums, shoes and cylinders with yet another new set to solve the problem. I learnt to hate drum brakes and resolved to swap to disc brakes as soon as was practical.

Spring Spacers

I have C-AHT21 competition springs on the front of my MGB because I wanted to lower it to a similar height as chrome bumpered cars. However, no matter how cool it looks, it’s too low. I struggle with speed humps, I get bad bump steer and occasionally ground on bumpy roads. How to finely tune right height on an MGB without coilovers? Spring spacers are one way to do it.

Drive-It Day

25 Apr 2021

I drove to Hastings today with my local MG car club. This was to support Drive-It day in aid of Childline. We took the scenic route along A & B roads, no motorway. In total, over 4 hours of driving and 150+ miles. It was an immense amount of fun.
