Hello Folks, we have been invited to "Bacon & Brakes", a monthly classic car meeting at the Rhynd Cafe in Tentsmuir Forest just north of Leuchars in Fife.  Sunday 5th June is the next one...

The owner of the Cafe is a new Club member and recently inherited a 1963 2A from his Uncle, shipped back to the UK from Australia ! -  so he has invited us to the monthly classics meeting he has been running for a while. Basically its an open invitation to turn up, have a bacon roll and a coffee, wander about and peer under the bonnets of whatever we bring and the other classics that will be there, nice and informal.  The timings are supposedly 10-12 but Ed says people often turn up earlier, the Cafe opens at 8.30....  Ed also has access to some land so we can discuss the potential for future events...

Probably a bit of a hike for West Coast members but it should be "in range" for Edinburgh, Stirling, Perth, Dundee based members ?? 

I'll plan to be there for 10.00, see you there !!

My 101 is MOT exempt, it depends on the version and plating.  Mine is a GS, they were originally specified to carry 1 tonne and built to that weight rating on the plate, an empty GS only weighs about 2000kg so gross weight well under 3500kg.

In service they increased the carrying capacity to 1500kg (in consultation with Rover) and were re-plated, or some were, but not all...  Mine never was, and its not unusual for them not to have been re-plated.

Some of the variants were much heavier, ie the ambulances and Vampires.

All depends on the plate.

Yes, it is - Suggest you let Alan know you are a member so he can give you full access to the Forum, not just the "guest" bits !   All he needs is your membership number !


Thanks for replies.
I thought I was logged as a member. 🤔
What am I missing out on ?  😀

The longer you can leave the paint on the wheel to dry naturally the better.

After filling the cracks (Araldite works well too) I use an etch primer. Then an undercoat, then another undercoat - RED this time.
When the final top coat of black wears through you can easily spot it.

I use spray paints from rattle cans  :first

I made up a new weight plate for my 2B FC with a gross of 3500 Kg , pro rata front & rear off the original which only just over the 3500kg  Interestingly at the time it was made it was classed as a dual purpose vehicle as it was under 2 Ton unladed  and was not included in the Ministry of Transport Plating regulations for goods vehicles and that statement was on a plate on the vehicle . Why could they have basically said if it was a class four MoT  it could be exempt rather than putting a weight limit.

Another vote for milliput

My top coat was vulnerable to hand sanitizer and would pull off if I had any residue on my hands
