After following many sales recently and seeing the auction posts on here, after an eBay sale last night, I can't see any for sale anywhere!
Having just had #189 restored throughout and investing in a full bodywork tidy up and respray, can only see the prices rise over the next few years.
Apologies for those who have viewed or joined but decided to setup a restoration page to show my progress after 2 years off the road and left in the corner of a bodyshop. After 11 years of ownership I have decided to put the work into...
In the process of having a freshly painted bumper and my original one will be up for grabs hopefully within the next few weeks. The bumper has had a hard life (146k miles) but has no splits to the best of my knowledge. It does have some scuffs to both front corners and copious amounts of stone...
I'm after a few bits and pieces and wondering if anyone has any spares knocking around?
Passenger side electric window panel and switch (also need the screw and screw cap)
Set of original Trophy seat belts (not too dirty)
Rear number plate lamp
Sorting through a few bits in the garage ready for the return of the car and slowly going to thin down on some servicing items I have kept.
Set of 4 brand new NGK Platinum Spark plugs £35 posted (have 2 sets)
It's been a long time coming but my pride and joy is being resurrected after being in a bodyshop for almost 2 years having minor bits done as a in between private job.
Have a huge stack of parts to fit when she returns but wondering what the common issues are with these after such a long period...
Centre / Mid section Janspeed Silenced 2.25" with adapter / flange to connect to OEM cat.
Only selling as has a slight rattle at high RPM. No damage and lasted me many years, since replaced with the same piece other than unsilenced.
Any questions please ask.
£30 including postage.
After spending the last few weeks researching the steering system on the Trophy, I decided to buy a used rack off a semi-local seller on eBay and took it all apart, just really for my own knowledge and an ideal spare. It was removed from a 172 Cup, and from discussions on Cliosport, the tie rods...
All items used with the exception of the black 'racing' bushes for the Evol dogbone mount which are new. Let me know if anyone is interested or if any questions.
The springs are Apex 40mm lowering and will fit 172 and 182 variants.
In trying to find and cure an exhaust vibrate / rattle I have decided to replace and repair anything to the exhaust system and associated brackets and joints.
I decided to go for the upgraded cat to manifold bolt and fittings along with a new 'donut' gasket from my local factors.
Ideally after just the washers / spring cup for 1 side of the cat to manifold spring joint, one side of mine had bits missing and I only replaced it a couple of years ago.
Please let me know if anyone has anything going spare.
Managed to have a day free yesterday where I have managed to get lots of bits and pieces for the Trophy, which included new power steering fluid, gearbox oil and new drain plug / seal, fresh oil and all filters, throttle clean, new powerflex rear exhaust mounts and replacing a monkey chewed...
Haven't 'played' with my suspension settings for a while and one of the adjusters doesn't turn and click.
Has anyone had any similar issues? If so is it a case of lube and gently twist to loosen?
Have had new adjusters twice unpinned, the last time with the blue dials.
Well what an eventful few days it's been, the T had an oil top up at Eurocarparts and slow drive back to my work and - BANG the car sounded like it had a terminal failure. Just about ran, heavy knocking from the top end under load, almost failed to start, AA guy guessed cam shaft fail, then...
........have had a very frustrating few weeks after the T was finally paid for outright. I think it's just been a month of 'doom' but hopefully the rectification and replacement of various components will see the T right as rain!
It started off with a very continuous issue with my Janspeed...
has anyone had their heater blower motor failed?
Give it a tap and it jumps into life, albeit it sounds rough!
Wondering best place to purchase a brand new one and how difficult it is to remove?
The T has been a little jerky of late, random sporadic speeds, nothing permanent. Mpg is high, does not seem to be drinking fuel, both lambdas replaced last year, and no warning lights.
Any ideas what this could be?
