Re: Gearbox advice

Hi Jamie Ive got the IRS, Ive also had a few discussions with people and as I will be mainly poodling around Cornwall in the bus.

Re: Taking someone to court

This wasn't a rush job, it was 8 months late from the initial agreed 8 month completion date. You hit the nail on the head with the observation failure to complete anything, and to moving from 1 job to another before finishing anything, leaving everything in a faulty condition. Beggars belief really...

Gearbox advice

I'm putting in a creative IRS setup and I wanted to get the best gearbox for this set up. The van will mostly be for burning around Cornwall so not really for those long motorway journeys, however I like the sound of keeping the revs down and the engine cool (i'm not really sure thats how you keep a...

Re: Taking someone to court

Sorry its been ages since I have trawled through the SSVC and reply. I won the court case. It was against Mark Robinson of Dubwise Vintage VW werks of Fraddon Cornwall, from what I can see from his social media he is no longer in business. Of course it wasn't financially worth it, from his point of ...

Re: padstow

There is a layby at the top of Padstow above the main car park (not the one by the harbour), its more of an old bit of disused road, its where the locals who don't want to pay car parking go. There is space for about 10-20 cars along it and where you can still squeze in at Mayday.
