5cudo Chat / Re: Carbon rear tail grill section, OEM?
« on: August 11, 2020, 11:59:49 AM »
The carbon fibre rear panel was an addition to the car and not a swap for a non-CF part. In fact it required the rear of the body to be modified to make it fit, so unfortunately there is no panel to take off and dip.

The carbon fibre rear piece was an (expensive) option from DNA. I do not believe that an OEM item would fit.

Here's a link to a photo of my 5cudo part way through build showing the rear section of the car.,1207.msg16091.html#msg16091

I'm sorry to have to report:

Despite being re-arranged for August, this show has now been cancelled.

Any tickets purchased for this year's show will be valid for the 2021 show.

4thirty Chat / Re: DNA F430 measurements please !!!
« on: June 30, 2020, 11:21:25 PM »
I'm sure someone will be along to give you the wheel to wheel measurement on a 4Thirty, if not I'll get you the width of a 3Sixty, which should be about the same.

Another point to note is that these cars are very low to the ground and may not have towing eyes.

It looks like the show will be postponed, but there's been no official announcement as yet.

Grosvenor Shows who organise this show, also organise Quilt Shows and they have already rescheduled their 3 Counties Malvern show which was due to happen in mid-May.
The organisers are trying to find an alternative date later in the year.
Complete Kit Car magazine will still be publishing their guide to the show in their next edition, but they are suggesting that people hang on to the Stoneleigh guide for use later in the year.

I will update this thread as I get more details.

Sorry to be a pessimist, but, is there any news on this being cancelled?

Details are not available right now, BUT it's looking likely that the show WILL be postponed.

how do i get to log in at adrian flux web site theres nothing on the site to register as i want to look at my insurance details can anyone help......thanks
Probably the quickest way to find out would be to call Adrian Flux themselves. There may be members who have done this themselves, or someone from Adrian Flux may spot your post and reply, but that's not guaranteed.

Meets and Events / Great Western Classic Car Show 8/9 Feb 2020
« on: November 09, 2019, 12:23:13 PM »

Following the Classic Vehicle Restoration Show, we have been invited to have a stand at this show. It's at the same venue (Bath & West Showground BA4 6QN) on the Sat & Sun 8/9 Feb 2020.
The format of this show is pretty much the same as the November show. We have a "stand" which is inside (either hall or marquee) which is heated (and it needs to be). We can get in on the Friday (or early Saturday morning), then the cars are left there until after the show closes on Sunday, though it may be possible to leave after the show on Saturday.
We've attended this show since Feb 2017 and had a lot of interest in our cars, especially the 2Fifty.

If you want to come you'll have to reply here or PM me, there's no set size for our stand as yet, but they're already allocating areas, so we need to let them know soon.
Who's interested?

No real details as yet, but it seems Grosvenor Shows (those who organise Stoneleigh) are going to add Newark as a new Kit Car show.
The dates are Saturday & Sunday the 25/26 July 2020.

As I find out more I'll post them here.

General Chitchat / Re: Unable to PM
« on: November 04, 2019, 05:47:23 PM »
As a new member you are not allowed to PM - in the past we had serious issues with people abusing this, hence this was restricted along with where you could post.
Some of those restrictions were listed here:,3858.0.html

However you should now be able to send PMs.

Apologies for the delay in replying but I was at a car show all weekend.

DNA supplied a carbon fibre panel as an optional extra which is what I used on my 5cudo.

Meets and Events / Classic Vehicle Restoration Show 2/3 Nov 2019
« on: July 24, 2019, 06:20:40 PM »
The official title for this show is:
Footman James Classic Vehicle Restoration Show

  2nd/3rd November 2019, 09:30 to 16:00 each day
   Bath and West Showground, Shepton Mallet, Somerset, BA4 6QN

This is not a kit car show as such, however, Complete Kit Car (CKC) magazine have booked one hall for kit cars - specifically for owners clubs.

If we want we can have a DNAOC stand in the hall, however:
 - space is limited
 - cars cannot leave the hall during show hours (but could leave overnight)
 - ideally same number of cars for each day, though could be different cars
 - needs to be a firm commitment to attend

We've done this show for the past few years and it's been fun, best of all considering the season it's inside AND there are heaters!

The organisers have just called me to see if we are going to attend. (They haven't even sent out the forms yet, but I've booked us a stand pending the forms arrival.)

So, let's see who wishes to attend.
