  1. Hypothetical question and possibly covered before so apologies if it has.. Car goes for WOF, fails on needing cert for.. I dunno, lets say coil overs because thats topical. Does this mean the car MUST get a cert to proceed to WOF status or can the suspension be changed to OEM and all good to go for a re check
  2. Could somebody please remind me where registration stickers used to go (the old school ones, not the behemoth ones in the corner)
  3. such a cool build and I love the fact you wanted to keep the factory body lines
  4. +1 for wireless mic pls Had to turn my speakers up while listening to the talking and it wreeeeeeecked my ears when the camera angle changed and noises were loud haha Alternatively, you could just run some subtitles Enjoying the videos none the less, looking forward to seeing the progression in both the cars and your YT career. Keen to see the following two videos if you're looking for ideas - Full garage tour, showing all the bits and pieces - Full garage clean up. This would be a very satisfying time lapse haha
  5. Subbed, looking forward to seeing all the projects you do. Sweet garage set up
  6. Quick little update.. Bike WOF was approaching fast and I needed a few things.. 1. Indicators weren't E marked 2. Tail light was integrated with indicators and not acceptable + the difference between tail and brake light was marginal and you'd argue very unsafe if you didn't have your wits about you/person behind didn't have their wits about them 3. Rear tyre wasn't goneskies completely but I wanted to swap it out for a better quality one 4. Rear brake pads were at a marginal level.. Would have needed to be replaced in 1000 kms so was a no brainer to swap out while tyre was getting c
  7. Spent some time here and there on the Thruxton over the last week New parts put on are Clip on handle bars Triple tree clamp off an older model Thruxton, powdercoated gloss black front fork boots BCC Headlight brackets Round mirrors (only had one mirror previously) And then after I went for a shake down ride, I got home and my Motone Microblade aluminium screen turned up with a few bits of dress up bits. I couldnt resist putting the screen on but will get some proper pics when i've made some more changes
  8. If I brought a car that was stolen and recovered and then de registered from insurance company - would they have removed the VIN plate off the firewall? Engine, chassis and plate number etc match up so i don't think it's too much of a dodgy situation but if that a major if it's missing for the re vin process or do they create a new one anyway?
  9. Watermark signs back at it again with producing the decals - This time a tail piece for the cowl, the lines and also the number I also slapped on some yellow tint on the headlight. It really irks me how I spend hours on polishing the headers to a mirror finish and after a 20 minute ride its back to dull..
  10. Did some shed stuff today Removed integrated tail light as WOF man says it's a no no Reverted rear mud guard back to standard (removed chopped one).. Added round bullet indicators and lucas tail lamp for that era specific vibe Also installed new valve starter set, manifold gaskets, put OEM air box back in, changed jets, played with air/fuel ratio, removed old gas, added new gas and tuned to a perfect idle. First time it's idled without pops and splutters. I will never go aftermarket air filters on a carb bike again, if I can help it.. About 10 different jet test runs and I could nev
  11. Completed the Ride Forever Gold course today with Two Bald Bikers and had a blast 10/10 would recommend
  12. Picked up a new set of wheels recently 2013 Thruxton 900 with plenty of goodies
