ALL-RIGHTY-HO ...

I thought it would be a lot tidier if I kept this Topic in a separate Thread - it was getting a bit disjointed and perhaps spoiled the 'continuity' of the original ...

It's also intrinsically bound up with my pre-JAE "Modathon 2012", which is what will be releasing most of the available spare parts, so I'll post all the details in here as well, and I'll put up a Price List in here on the Thursday evening ...

The following Posts do duplicate some of the earlier chit-chat, but I'll see if I can get a Mod to recycle them ...

JDR's JAE Sale of the Century ...

I'm going to [ABP Motorsport] the week before JAE 2012 for my "Mods 2012"

Afterwards I'll have a lot of 'pristine' spares that I'll take away with me

Everything from 4 x Conti SC3 17" tyres with 1 year / 10K miles (excellent tread) down to a Tegiwa magnetic sump plug and everything in between

We're talking "Beer Money Prices" - I don't want to throw these things away - and I don't want to haul them back to Norway

I'll pass out priced lists latest Friday afternoon and everything must go by 12:00 on Sunday !

So take some cash with you and enjoy the Civinfo.com "Sale of the Century" !!! :-D

Stornoway Black Pudding I hope ?
It'll be from an old-fashioned Family Butcher called "Andrew Gillespie", at Anniesland Cross in Glasgow - they make it on the premises (ditto the Sausage) to their own closely and jealously guarded recipe - they win Prizes for these ...

Possibly get the rest of the Scottish Civinfo contingent round for a quick meet, perhaps?
Sounds like a plan ! - why don't you guys organise a little get together on the 11th. or 12th. ? - a nice Pub with a decent car park ...

We can kick tyres, talk Civics / cars / whatever, and have a beer ...

+1 Arrange a meet Derek for when your back "home", and bring the crispy rolls and black pud ! :D
Uuffff - a Scottish morning roll, with Black Pudding and perhaps a drippy fried egg inside - get thee behind me, Satan !!! ....

I need a bit of help / advice, 'Peeps' ...

Bump, Bump, Bump ...

Simple problem, but I've been unable - so far - to find a solution ...

I've bought remanufactured EP3 front calipers, as part of the upgrade to Type R brakes - BUT - it now transpires that they were the bare calipers and didn't include the pad carriers and fasteners thereof !!! ...

Does anyone know of where I can source these, at a reasonable cost ? - FN2 and EP3 units are seemingly identical / interchangeable, if that helps ...
