  1. The restoration of DJR2

    That's a very expensive accident. I think I will have a look into that website Ian thanks for the info.
  2. The restoration of DJR2

    Oh ok I'm not sure if either of mine would conform for the htp but regards racing them I think I would like to at some point but for the time being there just track cars. Well one is road legal but never gets used on the road and the other I'm still putting together and isn't road legal. How would I found out what I need to do to conform for the htp, I'm assuming someone like Paul would probably be the best man for that advise?
  3. The restoration of DJR2

    Hello Paul how's thing? You know you need a track car mate, there's a few of us building gpa reps now hopefully ready for the summer.
  4. The restoration of DJR2

  5. The restoration of DJR2

    You say your English isn't good Ian, can I ask where you from?
  6. The restoration of DJR2

    That's a great story Ian and thank you for sharing it. I was a little behind the times with the rs500 touring cars as I was only born mid 80s but I love these iconic cars and have spent many years trying to learn about them, for you to own such a piece of Motorsport history is fantastic. I think I've missed the boat for a genuine car but I have 2 here now and there as close to a genuine grpA car as I think I will ever get. With regards to the link you put up in a previous post for the racing series is that only for genuine cars?
  7. The restoration of DJR2

    Hi Ian it's great to put a name to the car now and what a car it is. I think Paul's going to struggle to let it go when the time comes lol. I cant remember if I read it on here or somewhere else but would I be right in saying that when you bought this car it was a rally car and you didn't really know it was Djr2? Wow you have 2 gpa cars, is the Imberti one the one Paul has just been working on?
  8. Rs500 shell eBay

    Cheers for the reply Paul. I've done some homework since and it's not for me this one.
  9. Rs500 shell eBay

    Evening all. Been looking at this and I do have a few rs500 bits about and wondered if this would be a cheap way to get into rs500 ownership. Does anyone know anything about it? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ford-RS-500-sierra-cosworth-RS500/122953860822?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
  10. Evening all. Been watching a lot of the early Btcc, etcc, wtcc vids over Xmas again and got me thinking about what group A rs500s are still actually missing? Are all the texaco cars accounted for? Also I have seen what's for sale on race cars.com but any other group a rs500s about for sale?
  11. What cars are still missing.

    What was the reason for them being black inside Roy?
  12. What cars are still missing.

    Thanks for the info and the pics Roy I haven't seen a couple of them. It's amazing to think these legendary cars are just sat somewhere unknown still.
  13. What cars are still missing.

    Interesting stuff. So what other well known cars are still missing.
  14. What cars are still missing.

    Are there any in the UK Roy? The vague one is that the one that was seen on the single wheel trailer with the odd looking centre locks?
  15. What cars are still missing.

    Roy I notice you have a texaco car on your sig, do you own one of them?
  16. What cars are still missing.

    Hi Roy what texaco car is still missing and any ideas on its whereabouts?
  17. New owner of DJR 1

    Wow.......... Well done Paul that is a serious piece of Motorsport history and I can't imagine how you feel to own such a car. Well done.
  18. 3dr Sierra mirror blanks

    Im after a set of mirror blanks for my 3dr so I can fit the touring car style mirrors. I'm sure I read on here somewhere that someone was making them but can't remember. Any help would be most appreciated.
  19. Help needed for colour code

    Hello Paul. i was gonna ask him next time I pop in there but if I remember rightly his is darker blue than the original.
  20. Evening all. I'm trying to find the colour code for the blue used on the labbatts rs500. Any help would be most appreciated.
  21. Listerine rs500 Group A race car (SOLD )

    Wow I'd love this. Good luck with the sale Paul and can't wait to see the replacement as it must be pretty special.
  22. Chance of a lifetime

    Must have been a great day Paul with seeing the famous faces and especially getting to drive the Bastos car. Not at all jealous lol.
  23. Finally got my car finished and I'm really happy with how it's turned out. I went for the speedware livery as it was quite a known car back in the day and as far as I know no one has done one with this livery plus it was white anyway so happy days. Let me know what you all think.
  24. I've got a genuine set of ex touring car Bbs e50 centre lock split rims that I've just had refurbed and I've fitted them on the car tonight (without tyres at the minute) and the wheels look like there inline with the arch which mean they look to wide ???? I'm running 7.5". Barrels on the rear and 7" on the front with 1" outer lips all round, the back will go with arch modes but front looks really tight. It's almost like the adaptors (mk) are pushing the wheel out to far but obviously the adaptors have to be like that and the wheels are what they are??? The only thing I can think at the minute is to put the front down to a half inch outer but even then not sure it will go. Has anyone had any experience with this setup????
