  1. Looks great that! A Westy/MK/Lotus is definitely an itch I'd like to scratch one day.. Leave the plate off!
  2. Bahhh!!! I'll see if I can fix it by mobile, if not it'll be tomorrow! Edit - All fixed now!
  3. And yes, there is a semi-deliberate gap there too
  4. @monkeyseemonkeydo I fired 5-6 small tacks round the perimeter and then got a blowtorch on the cast and then it was a single weld round. The cap on the old WG port I used mild filler as the plate was mild also, and weaved over the rod (with preheat as the flange) Yeah, it kept growing!! How it began.. And then a bit more.. And then a tiny bit more!
  5. I'm liking this thread! I'm usually found in the garage in the evenings making stuff, most of which is "car thread" content but will try and remember to post some non-car stuff in here. A few more recent things I've made to contribute here (there might be car stuff..) Scale mock-up for a residential strip and fire resistant re-clad project we'll be doing - One of those London residential building over 18m you've been hearing about in the news so often. Area will be 2000m2 A little bit of TIG work here - Stainless v-band to cast turbine housing. I most likely used the wrong filler (308) but that's what I had. Added the little bit of fence infill to the left the other day, but the entire lower section including the sleeper retaining wall with steps, lower artificial grass, decking, back fence was completed by myself last year. Top section of 'turf' will be getting redone hopefully this year when the extension gets done. How it looked before for ref- Twin plenum inlet manifold, this was my first real aluminium TIG project undertaken That'll do for now - no idea if the images will work as I've linked them to my google photo account - let me know if not and I'll have to upload them to the forum.

  6. Loved mine!! Anyhow, if anyone has some "Search for a Trials Star" from 2005 or 2006 that would be great! It was myself, Shrewsbury, Fatmike, Nick Manning. There was also an article following the finals following the bike show... Andy P
  7. Hi Ali long time no see/speak! Hard luck on the rejected offer, but I've found things like this always iron themselves out. We've had offers rejected on places we thought we've loved but then there is always another house around the corner that comes up, for the right price that'll suit you more. Fingers crossed it'll be the same story for you! Andy
  8. It's just a B5 Audi S4. Rwd, saab engine, diy dry sump, holset hx40 turbo, vems management, bmw 6 speed manual, nissan S14 rear diff housing, cusco RS LSD. Widebody is all metal and all my own. Andy P
  9. Fixed now you miserable bastards Andy P
  10. It works for me!
  11. Hi guys! My name's Andy and I'm new here. I see for a trials-forum some of you also have an interest in cars - which I do too! I think we might get along. Below is a picture of my track cars, neither of which work, seemingly ever. Even if they did, they'll probably be considerably slower than my company car. Andy P
  12. Well these look pretty good
  13. Two bikes have been stolen from Fareham, hampshire. Only have the full specification of one of the bikes at the moment listed below - Full spec: Endorphin (Small sized frame) Marzocchi 55 ATA DT Swiss EX1750 wheels, rebuilt with silver Sapim CX-Ray bladed spokes. Raceface Deus cranks Formula Oro Bianco 180mm front 160mm rear Thomson Elite post Thomson X4 stem 70mm FSA 220 bar Sram X9 shifters with Formula matchmaker clamps Sram X9 front mech Sram X9 rear mech med cage Sram 980 cassette 11-34 Sram 971 chain High roller tubeless tyres Gusset slim jim pedals Sunline logo lock on grips The other bike is a Blue Pace RC450, with masses of carbon components. Any information that might assist in the recovery of these bikes is greatly appreciated.
  14. The frame is an inspired Hex. The grey frame used in some of the clips is actually the same frame. Why the colour change to white? Notice the white frame is double disc Zero Gravity
  15. Just wondering if there are any local riders that fancy a bit of a roll about tonight? Don't know the area too well so would appreciate being given the tour! Andy P
  16. Haha! You do realise I live with Nick AK? At the mo he's on shift work and wont be home til the weekend.
  17. I have a feeling I should start posting in here so you can all humor my comedy lifestyle. Hi my name is Andy and I have a problem with women.
  18. That is actually my most favorite book of all time! And I'm not frustrated, that would imply that I don't get any... And Luke... I only go for butterflies. Standards.
  19. Ring girl was last week man. There's been 2 since....
  20. Jardo, if Lou wasn't so repulsed my my near constant nakedness, I'm sure you'd let me - because 1. I'm Andy P and 2. That's just how I roll.
  21. Can only assume you've not met Jardo in real life because he is actually that much of a dick
  22. Thats about my life summed up in one post. LOL
  23. Not read much of the thread but I thought I'd chip in for the past 2-3 weeks I've been on 7 meals a day consuming approx 350-400g protein (mostly from food - I'm only getting 36g from a single daily shake) and I probably average about 110g of carbs daily most of which are consumed before mid day. Calories are generally quite low (around 2000)
  24. Yeah, that's definitely me.
  25. Tarty bikes says they're 410mm axle to crown length.
