    Spare wheel cover...

    Does anyone have, or has anyone made a cover to go over the spare wheel on the rear tub?

    I'm thinking I may forgo a spare and use the space with a cover as 'boot space', has anyone done that on a...

    Re: sportster v8 build manual wanted

    I have a CD with one on, but no CD reader on these new fangled Apple computers so give me a day or so to wind up my old Windows laptop and if that still works I can email you a copy. Maybe we can put...

    Anyone looking for a car that doesn't leak too much, Danny Nelson has the blue Cabrio that Liz and Bob owned for a long while, weather gear is awesome on that car.

  11. Re: Tyre width preferences for 15" rims on a Ford based Sportster

    Still working on tyres, and wheels now. What ET are people running on their 7x15's? Mine are ET35. I also see that I have spacer, look like 5mm on the front, and maybe on the back. Look to be to get...

    Thanks guys, a while on Google no luck getting the same type. Time to get the replaced with the chrome proper items I think.

    Re: Boot bulkhead creation

    I made a floor to cover the tank in my orange roadster, you could use a similar method.

    First made a cardboard version, which enables you to get it right by trial and error, cutting, trimming and...

    Re: Suggestions for 215/60r15 tyres

    I've been measuring, allowing for ±3% growth in the tyre diameter (is that correct?) under load and the 65 profile will take the tyre into direct contact with the bolts that hold the wing on, so...

    Re: Bonnet catches, anyone recognize this one

    I can hardly read it in real life, even with my glasses on. CCLIP or GCLIP, or 8CLIP, and something else but none of that helped via Google. They are from the late 90's so probably well gone by now.

    Thanks I’ll see if I can find some pics of yours for comparison.

    You have a couple of photos of my car in your gallery, one very helpful which confirms my thoughts that the two chrome bumper bolts...

    Bonnet catches, anyone recognize this one

    The top plastic part missing on one. I have a set of pull up spring loaded anyway if I can’t find one of these.

    Sorry, the image is on its side!

    Re: Suggestions for 215/60r15 tyres

    Thanks. I've noticed there is a lot more choice in the 205's and from decent brands at sensible prices.
  22. Tyre width preferences for 15" rims on a Ford based Sportster

    What are you running? I see 215's are rare in 60r15, so what about 205/65's? I see the build manual talks about the rear tub spare recess being there for 195/15's.

    The 205's it seems will give me...

    ... and now a Sportster owner.

    In my endless quest to own as many of the models I can I have now exchanged the blue Cabrio, Bluebelle, for the 1999 'SSC' Sportster.

    Bluebelle is a great car, but since the Sportster was first...

    Re: Suggestions for 215/60r15 tyres

    I just crawled under the Sportster and I can see the rear tyres are occasionally rubbing on the chassis, paint is still there so it's obviously a light rub. Maybe I should go to 205's, would fit...
