Front Grill

Has anyone got a proper front grill they no longer need?
Mines got the Defender plastic slats on it.

So the cams weren't designed to lift the valves less (as someone explained to me)?

Got a picture posted on the introductions page now!

inlet restrictors

Also, does anyone know what other things were done to de-tune the engine?

Cheers,

I know what you mean, but I paid £3,200 for a S3 SWB that looked like it was a good re-build. Like you, I haven't stopped paying out on it.

Help please!

I don't have everything for my re-build so I'm going to have to ask lots of questions, sorry if I become a bore! The support for the bonnet catch is like an "A" bracket and the bottom of the bracket is bolted to the front of the chassis. Is there a large stand-off spacer there or is it bolted direct...

My Stage 1 with photos now!

Hello fellow Stage 1 owners, I've been foolish enough to purchase an un-finished V8 project which is already proving to be a handful! I've already got a S3 SWB and have previously owned a Stage 1 V8 Station Wagon, a S2a Carawagon, and other various 109's - together with the daily driver, the Freelan...
