If that's OK try removing the air filter, start the en...

I use pub gas (CO2) and at £15 a refill at my local welding suppliers to me it's a no brainer.The cylinder and regulator, along with a few other bits and bobs cost £80 a few years ago, It last ages and the weld is good enough for DIY jobs.

Re: Time For Some Serious Woodwork

Chassis rail is in. I bought the half rail in the hope that would be enough but no, I ended up making another section of it and ended up with about six inches of the original :roll: Box of goodies from ESM :D https://i.imgur.com/0uGXSW8.jpg That doesn't look good https://i.imgur.com/l972J9q.jpg That...

From the outside everything looked rosy but I knew it wouldn't last :? So front wing off (which is perfect after being re...

Re: Hello, new owner with a few questions!
