Re: 16th June - Senlac Classic Car Show, Bodiam East Sussex

Yes, but only sent off the application form yesterday! No matter, even if the paperwork doesnt come through in time I'll be there anyway. Just the XJ12 though. Which until 2 days ago was refusing to start.... If your paperwork doesn't turn up Chris, you can have my second pass if you like! The Daim...

Re: Suspension rebuild/upgrade questions

I'll be able to give some input very soon (hopefully). My Daimler has GAZ adjustables all round, but I'm currently rebuilding the lot. Including having the dampers rebuilt by GAZ. Bushes are being upgraded to poly and new springs, spacers etc. The only polybushes I could get for the rear through we...

Re: Suspension rebuild/upgrade questions

I was lucky enough to pickup a complete set off of eBay. They were not in great shape, but they went into the car anyway as the existing suspension was absolutely shot. They have since gone back to GAZ for a rebuild, and come back completely rebuilt and ready to go again. Just waiting to put them ba...

Re: 16th June - Senlac Classic Car Show, Bodiam East Sussex

Hi Chris.
I'm going to book both in, but not sure if I'll be able to bring the Daimler.
It's looking a bit sorry for itself at the moment. Lots of leaks, suspension and cooling woes at the moment. Still putting it back together.
Jag will hopefully be there though!

Will be excellent to see you there Chris.

I’ll book both of mine and hope for the best!

I’ll message Kingfisher again, but not sure if he’s still active.

I haven’t seen his car for a while.

Looks really good guys!

Would have liked to have been there - but sadly work was in the way again!

Re: 40 Main Meet 2019

I'm afraid I can't do the 3rd August as I'm away with work until the 6th.

Sadly I tend to be away at the end/start of most months - so the old breakfast club doesn't really work for me.

It's a shame as I'd really like to attend one of those and see the museum.

Next time perhaps!

Re: 1994 Daimler Double Six

Could have been sat pride of place in the middle of the showroom for most of that time, waiting for a buyer and helping to tempt less affluent buyers into more reasonably priced variants. Well it's a nice thought that the car could have been a showroom queen for a year! :D But I can't see why the c...
