Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

So Arjan the good news is I have decided to go to the Newbury sort out and will be taking the prospective roof section with me and pass it on to miketomcat if he is still going Mike I will pm you nearer the time for contact details if that's ok

On a side note have looked at going to the sort out for a lot of years but not made it as yet as its a 13/14 hour round trip anyways going this year so dam well looking forward to it

Regards Stephen

Thats fine with me. I'll have a measure up to see if it will go in the back of the ibex if not I'll bring the 110 and put it on the roof.

Awesome - just plain awesome !!

Looking really, really good !!!!

 

Now, excuse my ignorance / rudeness / etc......

I've had an offer for the roof to be collected and taken to France by one of our fellow forum members if he could collect it when he goes over and he will be goint to the Bristol area... (roughly 2km from the site of the original 'old sodbury sort out'

Is there any way we can make this work ?

I can co-operate with Miketomcat to bring the thing to Basinsgtoke (M3) or Andover (on the A303) if that helps?

Mike has come to the rescue and can store the hatch there until it is collected...

May I say, again, this is just absolutely brilliant !!!!!

Many, many thanks to you all !!!!!!

I'm reckoning on this being the longest forum relay to date :)

My guesstimate would be about 850 miles depending upon where Arjan lives in the Auvergne !

I did relay some Series parts to St Petersburg for an Iranian-built Pazhan 90 but I can't remember if that was via this forum! :ph34r:

Edit: yes it was!  What do I win? :rofl:

For those that are interested the roof is on the next leg of the journey. A short trip around the south of England then across the channel.

Bon voyage.

Thanks for the update !

I am really, really looking forward seeing this roof hatch in the aluminium soon.

And again, let me say I am very, very thankful for all the people I've never met that helped out in this.

Guys, you are just awesome !!

I was talking to a lady in the New Forest this weekend with a 110 with an Alu-Cab pop-up roof, said they cost about £10k just for the roof :blink:

Yes....

The € 5-7k on the Continent somehow translates to idiot money in the UK..

PSP roofs (Holland) are where I suggest people go as Paul makes very good stuff for a normal price and the quality is very, very good

UPDATE - the roof section is now in France !

I cannot thank everybody enough for their help.

 

However, there always is one...

The 110 isn't mobile as you can see.

We're not sure what happened, but the result was not nice.

The parts are ordered tomorrow, but I'm off to Holland next weekend for 2 weeks of work so collection is a bit of a problem..

Not happy with the 110 at the moment......

I had something similar on the back of 45. The caliper had become worn allowing the brake pad to drop through the caliper more than it should. The metal part of the pad was touching the top hat part of the disc and had machined a groove 4mm wide and 3mm deep. When I discovered it the disc broke in two on disassembly. I would be willing to bet this is what has happened to you so I would recommend you check you calipers.

Hi Mike !

Caliper seems fine. The various nuts and other pieces of metal have been fused into a lot of nasty, smoking stuff.

Small miracle I got it to a friend safely..
