Beach Buggy Body and Chassis Help / Quick Steer Kit-pros and cons?
« Last Post by Manxdavid on March 03, 2021, 07:57:28 PM »
Has anyone ever used one on the street? I don't really need quicker and hence heavier steering but it looks like an easy way to change my track rods out a bit. I'm getting a little more bump steer than I'd like since I raised the suspension back up.

I will arrange the show for 2022 but will be away for the actual show so will need a volunteer to have all the paperwork and be point of contact.

Just in from Alison @ the NEC. . .


The show will no longer take place in June 2021

Important Information regarding the live show
 

It is with great sadness that we have to announce that, as a consequence of the ongoing impact of Covid-19, Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery, will not run on 11-13 June 2021 as originally planned. The next edition of the show will now take place 18-20 March 2022.

We understand this will be a big disappointment to you, as it is to us. We have all been very much looking forward to getting back to some form of normality and ‘business as usual’.

We are truly sorry that we have had to make this extremely difficult decision and thank you all for your continued patience, understanding and support in these ever changing times.

However, we will not be letting the occasion go unmarked and are planning an Online Edition, during our usual March timeline. We hope you can join us on Saturday 27 March 2021 for a day celebrating all the great things about the show, and this fantastic community.

See below for more information on the weekend’s agenda and how you can get involved.

Classic Car Auctions is hosting its Spring Live Online sale on Friday 26 March, with the Silverstone Auctions Race Retro Online Sale taking place the following days. The Practical Classics Classic Cars & Restoration Show Auction will take place on 11-13 June 2021.

We have confidence that come the autumn life, will have returned to a more normal rhythm and we are planning the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery as usual. This will run from 12 – 14 November and we look forward to celebrating all things motoring with you then.

This is what i have done so far.....

on my wiring diagram fuse 1 & 2 look like they are bridged together - so the coil shows connected to fuse 1 - the black from ignition to fuse 2 ....with one and two linked on the side where they both connect

Exactly that Snoopy.

I remember going for a job a long time ago for a company which was having to go through the wiring loom of a Jag which have headlight wash/wipers.  It appears in Canada a driver died after using his washers in seriously subzero temperatures. The wipers had frozen solid, blew the fuse, which also happened to be for the headlights too, and the driver crashed.

Horrifies me when I see people using the EMPI loom which only has 1 light fuse.

Reminds me of a friend's Audi kept going into limp mode, after many trips to the dealer turns out it was a slight bad earth causing a very occasional delay on the screen wash...the poor car really thought it was it that much danger...bonkers! :-\

yellow and black is aux ignition circuits and powers the headlight flash etc the black is ignition feed which could go to the fuse box to be split into other ignition controlled items and the coil but VW use it for coil.

you have feed in red
aux circuits yellow black
ignition black
starter solenoid red black

always fit 2 X 6 blade fuse boxes so lights are left side/tail right s/t and one for each headlamp beam as I have seen buggies with 1 fuse doing all the lights so one failure equals nothing at all.

Just a reminder.... It`s either this year or next at the latest that the MOT check will fail your buggy that has tyres fitted 10 years or older regardless of tread depth or overall visual condition. (I know a few folks , buggy and other home builds with old NOS tyres fitted).

That's only for the fronts of HGVs and PSVs plus mini bus tyres, from last month. It doesn't apply to cars.

 :o  That was my understanding too  ???
