Hi Phil I’ll massage you


Is the massage part of the bargaining technique?

You could try talking to Dave Fisher at Kingfisher Kustoms about an engine cover.  He owns all the GP moulds

Before I went full AN/JIC fittings I used a fuel quick disconnect coupling, makes it very easy to shut off fuel for filter changes or draining the tank by pluging in another hose.

Do you have a link to one?

I fitted a manual valve to mine, it's in the middle of the flexi under the tank.  Well worth it.

Beach Buggy General Help / Re: Size of Manx screen

Yes the bottom of the screen is smaller.  You have to mount it groove in otherwise it doesn't fit round the lip of the bonnet/dash join

The Manx screens do fit.  You might need to loosen the side screws to get it in there.

You have to fit the Manx screen with the groove to the rear, ie backwards to get it past the lip on the bonnet/dash.

Tempted to try and join you this time.  All depends on home life

Please note the following press release from the ferry

The Sandbanks Ferry was withdrawn from service on Friday 12th July following a fracture of one of the main drive shafts. The Ferry has two independent drive systems which consists of diesel engines driving a hydraulic pump. This provides the hydraulic pressure to turn a hydraulic motor which is connected to the drive wheel via a drive shaft. It is one of these drive shafts which has broken. In order to remove the drive wheel to change the broken shaft requires specialist repairers. In order to speed up the whole repair process we have taken the costly decision to have the ferry towed to a suitably equipped repair facility in Southampton to have the work undertaken. It is difficult to put a timescale on how long this work will take, considering the shaft must be specially made, but we estimate that we will be out of service until at least 12th August. We sincerely apologise to all our valued customers for this inconvenience, but can only assure you that we are working as hard as we can to return the ferry to full service as soon as possible.

I saw a set of these last week.  A local Manta ray owner is having his pan replaced.

Awesome quality, nice and thick. 

Although a little more that standard length high quality pans, the amount it is saving is well worth it plus look stock when done.

I still need to get you those pictures.  Buggy is away at the moment, but as soon as it's home I'll get snapping on all the details.

IRS is going to help keep the wheels from cambering if you are running the buggy high or low.  Most like a little negative camber when dropping the ride height.  It's more when you raise and get the positive camber things can look a bit off.
