    Project A72V

    Hi. I haven't read the thread thoroughly so I don't know if you've bought the car above. I'd advise you to save up a bit a go for a better example. Because once you do all the tinkering,painting and upholstery it easily exceed twice the purchase price at least. Most of these cars have been butchered and abused by 'buying and selling' people So unless its REALLY cheap, keep looking and buy a minter. I know the appeal of doing a project car from ground up, but don't waste your money. Anyway good to see another project thread, for tips and tricks on restoring,look up a project thread I did on an old Triumph on these forums, if its still online.

    Triumph T R Restore Project

    Hey fellas! Now as most of you know I am restoring a Triumph these days and I've had lots of requests to start a project thread so here goes.I have already uploaded some pics to the "Abandoned cars" thread so I"ll just cut paste them here for everyones convenience.Hopefully this thread will guide you on how to do a classic car restoration and also will act as my journal helping me to keep track of things. If any of you have any questions about this or any other cars,restoration tips in general please do not hesitate to ask here or PM me.I"ll answer them the best I can. BUT first a brief history about the car in question.Only about 4000 TR2s have ever been produced and less than half of that survives currently.So it is a very sought after car fetching £30000-£60000 depending on the condition.It is the very first car to be offered with disc brakes as standard and has a optional electric overdrive.Mine is a TR2 'shortdoor'.

    British Car Day 2015

    Once again the Classic Car Club of Ceylon and event sponsors Land Rover bring you the ‘British Car Day’. After the tremendous success and popularity of this truly unique event last year, the public can look forward to an event larger collection British classic cars and motorbikes from the 1930’s all the way up through the years. It will provide the public with an opportunity to feast their eyes on some spectacular cars and bikes. Iconic brands such as Aston Martin, Jaguar, Rolls Royce, Lotus, MG, Triumph, Morgan, Austin Healey, Morris, Ford and many more will be on display. An iconic event such as this deserves an iconic setting and what could be better than the glorious expanses of the Town Hall grounds. A 80 car parade will begin from this amazing venue and will make it's way to the Kingsbury Hotel where the public can see them shine in all their glory until 1.00pm. We hope to see many of you there! https://www.facebook.com/events/1388068124833158

    Buying a new smartphone

    I use the G3 as a second phone for almost 2 years now.Love it.I checked out the G4 recently but it was not a worthy upgrade IMO. Going back to Blackberry next with the Priv.

    Entering To The Car Gang

    Yeah something like that. Not really,Both are sort of equal when it comes to reliability and maintenance.The Alto is definitely more easier on the depreciation.The Nano is truly a fun car to drive as both Supra and esdeez will attest.I got a good deal from D*MO so I went with Nano.

    Cone Air Filter - Enhance Fuel Economy

    You're right,I forgot.There is no check out on the site .What I did was email them regarding the Triumph's air filters and someone got back to me from their California Headquarters as I remember.Or might have been a reseller in CA.Not sure.But he was able to get the custom TR2/3/3A filters for me.Here's the post I made - http://forum.autolanka.com/topic/13459-triumph-t-r-restore-project/?p=238152

    Entering To The Car Gang

    I test drove the new Indica(xeta),Nano,Alto,Hyundai Eon and Panda within the last month.The Indica is a good car but the Alto seems the more refined and easily sellable too.Reccomend the Alto or Hyundai for private use. If you're wondering which one I'd choose,I ended up buying two Nanos.

    Cone Air Filter - Enhance Fuel Economy

    If you just want a wash and reusable air filter(plus a slight increase of power),K&N makes filters that fit most air boxes.Just go to their website enter the make,model etc of your car and get the serial number of the filter.Then check with Motorcade if they have it or just order directly from the website.
