Kevin, after the bank called time on AC Autokraft, Alan Lubinsky purchased AC ‘in toto’ So production continued at Brooklands for a time, before moving to Frimley, then briefly Normandy(UK), from where they decamped to Malta, and touting a move to Connecticut, ended up in Germany. No ‘other outfits’...

Re: Well, that didn't fit

No daft at all, Kev! On the Le Mans tops, most are redundant as the screens are bolted, but 111JX isn’t, and has the biggest gap. I would guess that screen would bulge as far as the straps but not pop out, but would I trust it?! Hmmm... dunno, but it seems to survive! On the bubble tops, it may help...

Re: Well, that didn't fit

I like the way you’ve done the screen straps on your screen, Stu, in fact the whole top is a masterpiece! 😎 I took Dad for a spin in mine, 2 minutes up the road to get a takeaway, and just did the lap belts up. He said he’d seen what happened to Nick Granville-Smith, similarly belted, and wouldn’t l...

Re: Well, that didn't fit

I can understand the straps on bubble top screens(and 111JX, which also has just a rubber screen surround) but on LM tops with bolted-in screens, I just don’t get it. Unless it stops ‘drumming’, but I did that by introducing tension to the screen when fitting. (Thermosetting a curve into it would al...

Re: help! starter motor

Hi Stu. I’m guessing you didn’t see my review of Powerlite starters, and the fact that we have a club discount, in the latest issue of the Club Magazine? 😱 I had to remove my stock starter 2 years running, hence purchasing the RAC318 (which is the same part number as the Racemettle starter, so assum...

Re: Photo of 289, Reg VEV 895E

That was my first port of call!
There are a number of members with no Reg on their listing.
