Dutton Kit Cars and their owners
boy will i be glad to see the back of 2012.....
one way or another it has been a truly awful year for me and its not done with me yet. my garage roof leaks (hopefully bodged....er repaired) the tumble drier has packed in....with all my work clothes in it. one point of luck is that there was a spare tumble drier in my way in the garage ....(no longer in my way and i now have a load of self tappers and sheet steel. :-) )
And i am struggling to find a propshaft for my…Continue
well i have done the head on my sierra and fitted a new dissy (electronic) as well as strip and clean the carb and cured the misfire, which i thought was the main reason for the sudden arrival of a vibration i have......only the vibration is still there so under the car i went and the centre U/J on the prop is totally knackered. it has the staked bearings not the circlip type so will be a bit of a pain to sort. Any of you lads out there have a spare split prop for me please?
I have no objection to paying a sum of £1.50 for the siteContinue

busy weekend. This should help with chassis stiffness as wll as replacing the missing interior moulding. Transmission tunnel not quite finished but nearly there
I've been following the kit car scene since the 80's and have done GTMs and also a Sylya stylus (that I still have)
Had gap from it all for about 10 yrs but recently decided to get back in with my son, with a view to racing
I always liked the Phaeton and i see it as something of a classic - plus they're cheap
The story so far is that I bought a Phaeton body and chassis although i don't think they match as the body is well used but the chassis appears almost new…Continue

Well i have i just arranged delivery of my donor for the Sierra so the fun begins and i will probably have the chassis out again to do a few mods . I may even post a few tantalising pics of it on here
well today has been a bit strange, i had a quick look at my sierra and was asking about a spare cylinder head for my Xflow with a friend when the conversation got round to my bending my car a little bit.......then out of the blue came this offer.....
"I have a phaeton in a relatives barn that i never use, never driven really it got put in there over three years ago and i never got round to looking at it." so we talked about it half heartedly with a view to using it for parts, which…Continue
its occurred to me that a comprehensive list of current donor cars will be useful on here.....so here goes;
BMW..all of them
Lexus...most of them i think
Mercedes...again most of them
Mazda....MX5 and i believe some others (RX7?)
Suzuki.....the 4x4's but box is easy to mod apparently
Fords mated to Type 9's
any others out there spring to mind?
Hi Guys, I am just about to start my winter project of beefing up the front suspension of my S1 phaeton including a new set of coil-overs. As I run with a rover V8, with the usual spitfire/herald front suspension, I was wondering what the spring poundage should be on the new coil-overs I am ordering from Dampertech. Your advice/comments will be much appreciated
