  1. That's what I keep telling myself.... still waiting....
  2. Still about.. now and again... sort of.... and no I aint selling
  3. Still here.. Mostly in spirit Still have the scoob.. Would like to build up a mcrae gathering webpage in remembrance of the great man and the large scale event that was...
  4. Possibly best bet is to try breakers yards and get one from a car without front end impact. or.. for purposes of MOT you could remove it.. Old MOT trick of if it's not there they cant fail you on it. Quite a few people have removed this part to save weight! Although not 100% structural to the car, it is part of the frontal crash protection to help pull the engine/gearbox under the car in the event of heavy front impact. So worth replacing from safety point of view. Also looking at the photo worth getting the rust on the chassis treated while your replacing. And get some wax/underseal on there to protect!
  5. Got a GFb Stealth FX myself and love the idea it's adjustable.tend to run mine about the same with 75% recirc or more. Still opens to atmos more than enough to make a noise and with enough boost a short high pitched whistle. Bought mine 2nd hand a few years ago and it's never let me down! One you get the initial spring pre-load set (not difficult) it's spot on!
  6. Had to replace mine recently.. Found the cost to get replacements too much, ended up fabricating new ones, surprisingly one even came from an old metal microwave dish. Turned out it was perfect size for the rear disc! Many people run their cars without the plates, but I kinda like to keep them, just to help protect the calipers/pads from debris. FYI - The fronts are bolted on, where as Don rightly pointed out the rears spot welded in place. reccomend giving replacements a good protection as they do collect a lot of dirt which leads to corrosion.
  7. Of course we'll be back Peter. Whether the scoobies are there as individuals or as part of a car club, the event is for a very good cause and something I feel very strongly about! Hope it was a successful year once again and keep momentum going for even bigger events in the future! For those that missed it, here are some piccies from the event:
  8. You having a laugh! Looking at you pics on #fb yesterday. Yours it's looking great! Didn't get a chance to give mine a protest each yet never mind taking up.. Kinda tempted to dying a muddy field to play in on the way though to Keith to house the paintwork . . . must do that for an event sometime
  9. Organisers contacted me last night and were able to persuade me to go along Car's not what I'd call show condition but it's another car and events do look good when flags/gazebos are set-up! I'll try get a test of the gazebo in next couple of days before the event to make sure it's all still working.
  10. I'm in... Provisionally with patchy paintwork 1 Davey L WRX 2 Scottish Taffy 3 Peter W 4 ScoUK
  11. Just a reminder, I still have the SIDC Gazebo in case it's required for anything this year
  12. Noticed same issue on my bugeye a few years back.. Just welded/plated/painted it back up. Caught it early enough but it was starting to look pretty rotten down one side.
  13. Cool! shoukld be there about quarter to 10 all things goign well! Car got a quick wash earlier so will try get few more bits cleaned up when parked. Noit much can be done about the stone chips though Parked up in the garage with gazebo ready to go!
  14. D'oh! Only just picked up on this thread.. Been out in the wilderness Although the extended re-run of the Fling '14 last week was damn good fun!! Cheers guys! Yeah the day was a good fun all in all.! Touch of scooby detailing in the morning, no stress levels through the day just everyone ralaxed and having lots of fun! Shame we don't quite have the same numbers of SIDC members in the area or would have tried to arrange a proper drive past the Liachmoray Although naturally scoobies were used for the grooms wedding cars
  15. In some way maybe... But the issue is emphaised somewhat and difficult to miss. still.. it's only cosmetic..
