sharon if you do bid for this i need the lock catch if you don't and if you are not gonna bid could you let me know so i can no point in both of us bidding against each other now is there

No problem Rob, if we win it I'm sure you can have the latch bit dude Smile

Which bit is it you need? The spring & latch pin or the underside bracket as well?
I think I have the latch pin & spring bit already going spare in the garage if that's all you need?

OK the Vamp is now up and running.........but can only drive her in daylight.....Rick broke something which was electrical Rolling Eyes

It all started when we noticed no lights on the dash last nite so couldnt see how fast or should I say how slow I was doing.....

So he's just been out there......did something and popped back in to say i cant drive her at nite......so that tells me he's gone and broke more....

But he know seems to be taking some bits off the Girlfriend and putting it in The Vamp.... Rolling Eyes

Nevermind

ok update been along time coming......

As alot of you knew before I did about Rick's Secret Mission (as he called it)
My bug the Vamp is now being fixed.

Last November there was some starting issues which then progressed to Rick finding out that the Clutch was naf aswell affraid

As we planned to do up Babylon vamp took a second place as Rick decided that I could have the engine he was using to go in her so I would have abit more power.

So for 4 months she has sat on the drive looking very poorly.

That is until now. Rick has been secretly gathering bits for her and is now trying to get her back on the road ready for the cruise.

If we do manage to get her up and running we will meet you at weston seafront as I would not like to take the chance that all will be ok on her first trip.

I am so excited about this as it will be a very quick resto as he doesnt have long to do it in.

Will update with pic's later once he stops.

Thank you to everyone who was in on this and fingers crossed she will be on the beach lawns on Sunday.

lol! lol! lol! lol!

Just finished the connecting and guess what she would not start

No fuel getting to the engine. They have just put the back wheels on to see if that will help as she was still arse up in the sky.

Fingers crossed.

OK she is now running ok seems that someone knocked one of the HT leads hence the rough sound..... Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed

Dirty Dave is also here......as to why that is unknown to me but I assume something needs to be welded..... affraid affraid affraid affraid

Tried to get my BRM's on but we have the wrong wheel bolts think they said they were too short think that was what was said as there was alot of ####*** flying around.... Sad Sad

Not sure if they are going to attempt lowering her if they do go for it then it's going to be a long night........ silent silent

As you can see I am not very technical but I think you get the idea.......

I've just been out of the way doing the housework as I though it would be safer.... Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Will update later....
