Re: Which fire extinguisher

These are plastic cars and subsequently the body burns very quickly as opposed to normal cars. Those of you who were at Le mans Classic in 2008 might recall Paul Daniel's "Red 5" which caught fire on the way to the circuit. He and his passenger barely managed to get out of their car before it was en...

Re: Electrical Issue

Glad it is sorted. One thing I discovered when I built my car all those years ago was all the fuses in the supplied fuse box were 8 amp and some were not strong enough for the job. For example, the first time I used the horn in anger, a wee peep and the fuse blew! The canoe type fuses used to be cer...

Re: Hard top / soft top hood frame fixing hole/bracket

You are correct, the steel bracket is glassed in, and is fitted by Hawk. I've looked for pictures of it during my build, but this is all I can find.
