  2. Hi smiiithy, would like to chuck in my two pence worth to this... As a roadster owner who has leather seats and the standard set up that go with it I would try and suggest not going with the race harness. It will require alot of chnages to be made and for the 'extra' benefit I would struggle to see how it would be a worthwhile addition. There has never been an occasion when driving my car that I have thought "I must get a racing harness!" the seats that are in do a very adequate job. If you must need 'locking' in place then please try this. :)
  3. That car is already looking way beyond awesome, bet it'll go like a well known farm animals excrement off a particulaly warm and/or shiny shovel! top bombing!! :D
  4. Sorry to raise this board from the dark merky depths of abys but I feel it relevant to this thread... what with my rubbish drainage system in my car I fear it may of had an adverse effect on my Alarm system. Now, albeit very sparadically I sometimes get my alarm go off when opening the door, the only way to stop it is to insert my key and press the unlock button on the key fob, any ideas girls n boys?
  5. HOORAHH!! - I've cracked it, my attempt at clearing the drains was in vain when I was doing it from the outlet upwards. As the culprit was a stuffed animal... (eeyore too be precise!) had blocked all the top up with rubbish! now thats sorted everything seems to be panning out nicely now, got my stereo fixed and my alarm is alot less problematic. One down side is i've killed my aerial motor now... :( I must admit my presence on the boards ahs been somewat slack over recent months, I shall be sure to improve it. :D
  6. Sorry for the late reply, I fear i've been a bit of a numpty and not doen enough of a job on the drains. Gonna give them a good going over on Tuesday and if it's still causing me problems I will have to request your very kind offer of assistance. Cheers Les. :D
  7. I am in desperate need of help (mechanical rather than mental... but the mental help might be of use!) My '04 MR2 has sprung a leak, behind the back of the passenger seat there is a large amount of water ingress, this in turn extends to the footwells on both sides, and as a result is now messing with my alarm. I've tried emptying the drains to resolve the problem but that has proved unsuccessful, i'm now at a loss as to what to do, if anyone of you fine boys or girls could offer me some assistance in suggestions of either things to do, or respectable places to take it around York then please let me know.
  8. Matt, the sub enclosure pictured above is not sealed but I've since built a new one that is sealed, and in order to get a half decent box you need to spend a fair whack of time measuring angles to squeeze it under the hood and keep it in line with the transmission tunnel. That leads to problems finding a sub with a shallow magnet because as i've just found out, my vibe unit, pictured above won't fit in well. :( Good luck.
  9. Mr MF Rocks my world!! - I just sat and watched both those videos and I ain't joshing :D Happy St Patricks Day everyone!
  10. Thanks for your pointer, I've just tried a bit of prodding and poking and it's worked a treat, looks alot better now. It feels as if the bar in the soft top towards the rear of the car is not been pulled down by anything. A quick push and all looks good. thank you for your guidance. :D
  11. Unfortunately It was shorts weather, no cold excuse that I could of clung on to :( It's always been like this from day dot, what do I need to do to remedy it? BTW - Niiiice motor, looks pretty good!!
  12. Thanks Gaz it was very thoughtful of you, I do appreciate the linear thinking, sometimes it helps... But I did scratch that off as a possibility as I think the last time the roof was down was about 7 months ago, I'm not gonna brave the cold at the first hint of sunshine! :D
  13. Oh oh, I think my strap has been broken since I got the car, I take it my car shouldn't look like this?...
  14. Well you aren't gonna get them there on the friday, they'll all be on the school run! :P
  15. It was in the drivers side footwell, and was absolutely hilarious a few weeks back when it all froze (for anyone else watching!) :P I've checked the seal and that is how it should be, looks like there is no easy fix for me :( I've got water in the rear passenger side cubby hole and in the drivers side footwell, very puzzling. P.S Gaz, nice to see you contributing, but don't you have some 'LIFT' to be fussing over somewhere else :P
  16. Ahoy there, There is a nautical theme in this post as I have a boat load of rain water in my foot wells!! Now I have cleared the drains out of all built up rubbish, yet the water seems to be getting worse!! apologies for the lack of info, but is there something i'm missing that would rectify this issue? Teddy
  17. Alrighty there, i've been working like a trojan this winter and unfortunately let my forum presence slip quite a bit. :( But after visiting a traitors show this weekend (ultimate dubs!) I thought i best get back out there, and plus it'll give me a kick in the backside to start work on my car, don't want to be 100% stock when I get there. How has everyone been keeping. Looking forward to the JAE show I hope?! :D
  18. Please can you add my name, I would like to bring the roadster down for the weekend! Teddy.
  19. Yeah I'm interested, even though I can literally throw a stone and hit the tockwith one i'd rather go somewhere with good reports. (plus a 70mph go kart sounds like fun!!)
  20. Personally I wouldn't recommend it based on it's room, but it depends on a number of factors. But the grin factor of having one can offset the minor issue of not been able to steer properly. :D
  21. ... well it looks like I'll save the shame of been beaten by a fiesta till next year!! Never mind eh. :D Thanks Gaz for your valiant effort thus far though, much appreciated. ;)
  22. we meeting on the M62 services then? That clio was fairly nippy, but saying that so was Anne's Aygo, it was keeping up with me round the roundabouts!! :D
  23. Convoy on the day? 10-4 rubber ducky! - FBS?? :D BTW SJ, I've already bagsed slowest car of the day. There is a Fiesta coming you know! Anyway, FBS? That would mean driving from J28 to J32 and then back on myself! :P Is this the same Fiesta that was leading the convoy the other month, guided by HPS!? - Mine will defo be slower than that. What services are on the M62? we can always meet at one of those?
  24. Convoy on the day? 10-4 rubber ducky! - FBS?? :D BTW SJ, I've already bagsed slowest car of the day.
  25. Bought it, completed it, wasn't overly keen after COD4 set a really high bench mark. It was alot harder, but ultimatley you could just run and gun for most of it. Hopefully i'll change my tune at the weekend when I hook my interweb back up to live!! - fun times :D If anyone sees Teddylicious 08 kicking about online send me a friend invite and i'll give you a game.
