Dutton Kit Cars and their owners

Kit Car magazine

Finally got my copy of Kit Car magazine through the post today.  Had to buy it off the website, as WH Smiths don't seem to stock it around here.   A great write up on our cars and hopefully will generate more interest in the world of Duttons.  I wonder if this will lead to a few more being dragged out of their resting places and put back on the road.  Who knows, we might just see values rise a little bit too.

Ecu & Induction Advice Please

I see my options as 

1,  bike throttle bodies' aftermarket ecu - expensive

 2, keep the Jag in take and use X Type wiring loom and ecu, think this is related to the Ford EEC V ecu - cheap solution but the ugly intake might have to poke out of the bonnet

3,  Fit an ST 24 intake, cable throttle body and aftermarket ecu.  

You thoughts as to the best solution please

The rebuild continues ( Phaeton S3 )

No pictures from today, but brake overhaul now completed.  Since owning the car, I have replaced rear cylinders, front callipers, front disks, pads and shoes and today I fitted new flexible pipes front and rear.    Also put on new radiator bottom hose  ( top hose ordered but not arrived yet )   Heater hoses were replaced a couple of months ago, so hopefully, thats all the perishable bits replaced.  Headlights adjusted roughly (by pointing them at marks on the garage door)   MOT is very near…

I didn't see this coming 8 years ago when I re built…
