Re: Car Towing Services

I don't think it is unreasonable for a towing company to keep the money if you cancel at such very short notice. They have scheduled a truck and a staff to deal with your job, meaning that it is not available to earn them any other revenue. Cancelling leaves them high and dry, they won't get another...

Re: Can anyone help with A2 2.0 ?

A bit off topic: @Peranaman, your dedication and efforts in building the A2 tribute car is to be applauded. It is however a road car, and would be woefully uncompetitive against the front runners Chris's replica is more like a road legal track car. I saw Chris run it very hard around Nurburgring GP ...

That iteration of the car was physically still almost identical to how it was in Gunston colours. That means it will fit in the rules just fine. Also it kind of fits...

Re: " Rebody" Legal ?

Hello Fred! Long time no see :) A rebody is legal. Moving tabs and stamping from one to another never is. How the rebody is treated exactly regarding registration varies country by country. In the UK, if you use a bare shell (only) of exactly the same year, or a totally brand new shell, you car reta...
