What the organising committee would like to understand is, in an ideal scenario what would area centres like in terms of space planning on the camping field ? If you can post below answering the following questions 1. What is the size of your gazebo/mini marquee ? 2. How many tents from your area ce...

Simon - Where are you travelling from ?

I reckon it will take us an hour from M6 Charnock Richard services to Kendal so 10:00am to 11:00

Then another hour at the most from Kendal to Penrith

So Penrith around 12:00 - 13:30 if we leave Charnock at 10:00 !

I live by the M6 and avoid using it if at all possible ! I have taken my Imp on a trailer behind my MotorHome down the A49 last year to Hereford and then A465 to Abergavenny. However this year the camping is the other side of Abergavenny so forget the A465. I'm sure Mr Hawes will tell you the prefer...

Got my Croft pass as well, had a chuckle to myself when I read the terms and conditions and realised that you aren't allowed to substitute the car specified for another, a bit limiting for us Imp owners. Just hope my Imp holds out :lol:

OK so its not the Motorway stuff. Just had a look on the Tetrosyl web site and while it has correct API SE/CC spec it doesn't say if there is zddp added, I'll email them and ask the question.

Re: 65' mk1 599c : Dashboard back in

Definitely looking good. One thought about the temp gauge, they work on regulated 10 volts, a 12 volt battery supply will make it read about 10c high and running voltage of 14v even higher. So worth checking the voltage being supplied to the gauge - I think there are two sets of terminals on the bac...

I haven't finished sorting out the Imp yet, managed to poke a hole in the bottom wing / sill cover which put paid to any ambitions of getting an MOT in time, so will probably be along in the Rover.

Be good to meet some members.
