    Battery Relocation

    A couple reasons for wanting to keep the standard battery, mainly A, the cost of replacing it with a PC680 or similiar (£100+) and B, it's my daily and I'm not sure how the lightweight battery would cope with cold starts at 5/6am in winter. That mounting solution under the seat looks very neat...

    Battery Relocation

    Hi all, After missing out on a carbon R3 airbox on FB the other week I managed to pick myself up a V6 airbox for a decent price over the weekend, but now comes the difficulty in making it fit. I've ordered the mounting plate from No7 Motorsport and the link pipe from R Sport but the battery...

    Front Shock Bump stop/boot and Shock Nut

    Evening all, The latest shipment of Cooksport springs finally landed in the UK so I managed to pick up my set from KTEC to go with the new cup shocks I've had since November. I was planning on building up the new struts before tearing the car apart to make life easier but forgot about the bump...

    Removing White Marks from Splitter and Plastics

    Cheers for the replies, I use Fast Glass for the windows anyway so I'll give it a try and see if it gets the residue of the rubber and vinyl treatment off. I'll grab a bottle of C4 to apply to the trims ready for when it's a bit warmer, probably best to not apply that stuff in this weather...

    Removing White Marks from Splitter and Plastics

    Hi guys, When I last washed my car (admittedly it was months ago), I put some Autoglym Vinyl and Rubber care stuff on the RS Splitter and Skirts, A/B Trims and plastic door handles (poverty cup spec), thinking the rubberised finish on the RS Kit would take to the Autoglym stuff and turn from a...

    Cooksport vs Grams Lowering Springs

    Nothing from me, I haven't made a decision yet. I got the new shocks from RPD with the Black Friday discount and was hoping either Cooksport or Kam Racing would do a discount on their springs like the year before but no luck. I'm not fitting the new stuff until the spring (pardon the pun) when...

    Cooksport vs Grams Lowering Springs

    You've confirmed what I suspected to be honest. I think I'll just end up grabbing a set of whichever I can find cheaper when it's closer to the time I'll be fitting the new shocks. Cheers

    Projector/Reflector Headlight Questions

    Sorry I completely forgot to reply to this, I got distracted by the headlight listings clearly. Thanks for the links, I ordered a single light off another breaker on eBay that was listed as 'A+ Good Condition', only for it to turn up quite frankly FUBAR, I suspect they were using a generic...

    Cooksport vs Grams Lowering Springs

    Hi guys, I've just ordered a full set of new cup shocks (and top mounts) to go on my 197 and fancy a set of lowering springs to put on at the same time. The two brands of springs I see being thrown around the most are Cooksport and Grams, but that leaves me with the question - which is better...

    Projector/Reflector Headlight Questions

    Yeah I've been scouring eBay daily trying to find a set recently, it's just trying to find a set that haven't got ruined lenses which is easier said than done when you're dealing with 15ish year old headlights. I went to my local scrapyard/used parts place today to grab a pair of facelift rear...

    Projector/Reflector Headlight Questions

    Update for anyone who might find it useful: Phoned the local dealer again today and gave them the reg from @RSRowe and as expected, new lights are not cheap... £213 + VAT each in fact To be fair, compared to modern lights that's an absolute bargain but spending over £500 on a pair of...

    Projector/Reflector Headlight Questions

    Legend! Cheers. Given they couldn't find the part number originally I'm not holding out much hope for brand new ones from a dealer so I'll probably just have to keep scouring eBay for some decent ones. I'll phone up Monday and ask anyway, new ones would save a lot of hassle. Thanks again!

    Projector/Reflector Headlight Questions

    Cheers the replies guys, nice to know both sets of part numbers are the correct units. I phoned my local dealer yesterday and asked for a price on the first two part numbers in my original post but they said they're either invalid part numbers (which I can't see being the case considering...

    Projector/Reflector Headlight Questions

    Hi guys, I've recently been trying to source some black insert/projector headlights to replace the tired/cloudy/sun damaged reflector units on my 197 Cup but I've got confused with different part numbers I've found. On eBay there appears to be 2 'sets' of part numbers for black insert lights...

    Addy's RB 200 Project

    Perfect, cheers for the link. I've got a DAB aerial in the windscreen anyway so it's not a major issue if the reception is bad, it's more to tidy the looks up.

    Addy's RB 200 Project

    Lovely car, RB is incredible! I don't suppose you have a link to the stubby aerial you used do you? My aerial's been bent by the cup spoiler - makes the car look like a big RC model :laughing:
