It does seem strange that they are ending the show entirely.  They managed to have this years show and yes next years will be unable to happen, but having a year out should not be an issue (many shows have taken this year out).

I suspect there is something deeper going on and COVID is being used as a convenient reason to end the show.

does the engine   has a reverse rotation kit on it

Shhh we were hoping for another 4 reverse gears buggy.

Other option is to flip the diff in the gearbox

I really need to get up there at some point

Just checked on the stenna site for interested parties the Harwich ferry is 332 for a buggy and 2 people return doing cheapest options. Discount price will be looked into but no guarantee of one.

Have not price checked the tunnel option yet.

It's worth checking dfds from Dover to Dunkirk, I took the 6am ferry a couple of years back to go to EBI in Chimay.  It's not a bad drive the other side.

It's 170 miles the other side (via Antwerp to meet up with those going to the Hook), as opposed to 135 miles from the Hook.

The Dover to Dunkirk route is approximately 140 without any deals

Mine is to the large plug to the left of where you have yours, which is directly into the input feed to the oil pump.  I also put a cover over the top of the sender to shield it from the airflow, using a rubber cover you get for alternator terminals.  I get a good solid reading at all speeds now.

Beach Buggy General Help / Re: wiper arms

I used the full Lucas (old) Mini setup.  You can get it to park properly with a relay and the arms are a perfect length.

You can get an adapter to attach Mini wiper arms to the beetle setup.

I have played with the high brightness red Cob LEDs for my daughters totrod (long way away from being built).

I connected 2 positives to the LED one with a resistor in line and the other without and they work brilliantly for brake and tail feeds. (Brake without resistor and tail with)

unless the lucas system was fitted

I actually prefer the lucas system with Mini wipers for a buggy.  No need for additional modification

I switched to an early style solid column, i'd rather be taken out by the steering wheel in a front end collision, rather than a ruptured fuel tank covering me in burning petrol.
