    Re: LWB Roadster wind deflectors

    Matthew, I see no reason why you shouldn't mount the deflectors on the rear edge of the screen frame but you would need to be able to fold them in flat in order to fit the side screens. I know what...

    Re: Historie van deze wagen

    If you can tell us the model, original UK registration and chassis number of the car we may be able to tell the origin and history. Not sure if we have any Belgian or Dutch members but I can check.

    Re: Dismantling question 2 - new bulkhead?

    Cracking around the pedal box on Roadsters was a recognised problem and was solved by the fitting of a re-enforcing bracket. If you were to make a replacement bulkhead I would be inclined to use...

    Re: New family member

    Somewhere in my garage I have a hood frame for a SWB Marina based Roadster which will probably do. It's been modified so that it is in 4 pieces instead of the usual 2 for ease of storage behind the...

    Re: Rear anti roll bar mount

    Some models of the Sierra did have a rear anti roll bar fitted but the attachment to the trailing suspension arm was not the same as on the Cabrio. Mystery indeed!

    Re: Rear anti roll bar mount

    My Cabrio does have the rear ARB fitted, see photo. It was on the car when I acquired it and, as it didn't seem to cause an obvious problem, I left it on. Its a much smaller diameter than the front...

    Re: Can I change a Q plate to age related?

    As far as I'm aware, no club member has yet succeeded in changing from a 'Q' plate to an age related one but I could be wrong. Its certainly worth a try and, if you manage it, please let us know how.
