  • Here's how I've dealt with recalcitrant sellers who refuse to send their wares to our more civilised part of the world. ( I see you're in Queensland, so obviously I use the term civilisation fairly loosly) :bust:
    You need to appeal to the good natured members of this esteemed forum, so as one might offer to act as your agent and you get the seller to send it too them and they then send it forward to you.
    Now in these covid troubled times this will probably take longer than normal 'cos every bloody thing does.
    International postage is damned near useless at the moment (I've have a watch maker's tool sitting at Paris airport, waiting for a flight, it's been sitting there for over 2 weeks)
    So I suggest sending it via someone like UPS, they use dedicated cargo planes as opposed to postal services who mainly send on commercial passenger flights of which there are bugger all at the moment!
    For doing you this favour, I suggest repaying the generous spirit of the member acting as your agent with some excellent OZ produce such as a bottle of plonk or better still some Oz spirits. (No not bloody Bundy, you're meant to be repaying a favour, not poisoning the poor bugger)

    For the benefit of the rest of the membership here. There are some superb whiskies, gins and vodkas made here, which all you Pomgolians and assorted Johnnie Foreigners out there should try. (Just my bit for promoting the efforts of our craft distilleries)

    As for the splitter I found a broken one one fleabay for my car. Only one I could find.
    A flimsy piece of shit, I've seen wet paper bags with more structural integrity.
    I've been fixing and reinforcing it, once done it should be strong enough to use as a dozor blade!
    I s'pose it it might be possible to get someone to take a mold from it when it's done.

    I've not heard of a 180
    A 135 badge indicates 135 hp, 160 = 160 hp
    Maybe someone got hold of a 180 badge off a MG ZT and stuck it on because the squeezed some more hp outta it..... squeeze some more out and you can justify a 190 badge, next step is probably too much of a squeeze at 260!

  • Cobber replied to the topic CAT stolen in MGF/TF Pitstop
    Your local lowlife scumbags must be a desperate lot, to bother of going to the trouble of pinching a cat converter for scrap value.
    Here in Oz the local vermin can't be arsed pinching much less that the whole car, even then most wouldn't bother with an oddity such as one of our cars (A MG is an oddity to the uneducated feral morons) they prefer to knock off Holden Commodores , Toyota Hiluxes and other bogun fare.

    Bogun = Chav

  • My guess is it was more to do with packaging, it might have given them more room for equipment not required on the race cars.

  • My old eyes don't much like glare, I have a clock DAB+ radio in my bedroom and the bastard has a blue screen, I have it taped over, too bloody bright. I didn't relise it was blue when I bought it, I thought it was a muted grey screen, that's what the picture on the box had. I must give it the arse and get a new one.

    The F is not red..........it is Volcano orange, the Jag is Cobalt blue, the TR7 is white as is the 2500s (probably respray the TR7 Poo Fly Green), the Land Rover is Baby Poop yellow (bloody awful colour a proper yellow would be better), the Ford F250 is currently primer grey (will be dark blue) .......Ok the Ute is red, but it's a faded shitbox work horse.
    As you should see see I've got nothing against blue and don't mind red.
    So I don't tend to have a colour preference as such, but I do despise brown, beige & pink and I'm bored shitless by this modern obsession with monochromatic hues, endless depressing greys.... and no don't call it silver (if silver was that colour no bastard would bother digging it up!)) Black used to be a cool bad arse colour, but when the likes of Toyota started painting Camarys Black it became soooo uncool ( the Camary is so boring even the red ones are beige!)
    And white has always been boring, very few cars can get away with white, the E Type and XKi20 can pull it off, white needs chrome or another colour to work, otherwise it's too bland and unimaginative.
    I do like gold cars, but it has to be a good bright gold, not some horrid week as piss metallic beige..
    I don't even mind purple cars, but it should be the right purple on the right car.

    I actually don't mind the F's yellow instrument lighting it's not too bright but lets me see whats going on.
    I think MG were going for a nostalgic look with the magnolia gauge faces, and the yellow light was probably meant to give a vintage feel.

    I like my cars bright and standing out, but not my instrumentation lighting.

  • If that is a damper it's about the worst I've heard, I'd say it's more like a bush, but first grease those nipples!

  • Blue is the worst colour for instrument lighting, way to much glare, red is the best colour for instrument lighting, much easier on the eyes at night.
    Blue instrument lighting is just a silly fad! And most leds aren't dimmable, if you were to use high current leds then you've defeated the purpose of the main advantage of using leds, which is the lower current draw.

  • Cobber replied to the topic Radio in MGF/TF Pitstop
    Some years ago I fitted a Kenwood DAB+ radio and a 3db high-gain antenna on a ball mount opposite the existing FM antenna.
    I get excellent DAB reception way out of the normal range from the transmitters.
