Re: Tyre Pressures

Never an easy one that, best buy a digital thermometer then after a run take readings on the outside and center edges, outside edges hotter air add some, center hotter let some out.
That's they way I've done it anyway.

Re: Brads Tiger

Been to see the painter and he has kindly painted over most of the front wing Tiger badge, 260 motif and final wing finisher holes on both sides, does anyway have a drawing or template of where they should go?

cheers

Re: Brads Tiger

Are there any differences between a Mk 1 & a Mk 2 for carpet sets?
I've been looking at Coverdale and they only list the Mk 2.
