Re: The new Project

Dad, As always, you have done an excellent job, I look forward to seeing it in the flesh! Regarding the tank badges, I assume they are vinyl?

Re: Steel screws - materials

An M6 is usually only torqued to around 12nm, so from my point of view as long as it isn’t too critical you can make it out of pretty much anything!

Re: New club Facebook page

I appreciate that the use of Facebook isn’t for everyone, but generationally the way we interact with each other changes and we need to move with the times.

Re: Another new member

That indeed is the KH owned by the late Chris Read. It was restored (and the restoration documented on this very forum) by myself and sold to Chris to aid a house purchase.

Re: Annual Rally 2019 - Booking In

i have already paid in advance, a very simple process. I would recommend you do the same, it can’t be easy for the guys to predict numbers so we should do what we can to help them out.
