Thanks!

 

You have an Advisory of play in your ARB links. I would get them replaced soon as is practible especially before attempting a track day they will only get worse with further use. As you say they are not expensive.

Topic: PMR Radio used by members   Go to last post

Having used PMR radios  a few years ago it became apparent they were great for close contact but anything more than a dozen cars apart a CB radio performed so much better.

My Mk1 has a TTI TCI 550 CB installed in a mount below the single din radio.

 

 

Thunderpole short aerial is mounted on a bracket made by a fellow club member into the frankenstein bolt hole.

With six weeks until the Spring Rally there has been no official notification of any competitions or a coordinator that I have seen.

There doesn't appear to be an advert for Mal's replacement either.

Usually you get the original number back when removing a personalised plate.

I am just fitting a set of Crd's I received early January to my NC and they do not have this sleeving on the springs. Do you know if this is a recent addition by Meister, or did you fit it yourself?

I also note the Eibach springs currently on the original dampers have some sleeving top and bottom also.

 

The 'New set' came with the sleeves fitted, perhaps Jerrick may pop in and advise as to why.

Cheers

Ian
