• Christmas is coming...


    You can tell... Booking time for the workshop has dropped from the summer high of 4 months to just under 2... thats almost sensible for us! Weve even managed to set a little time aside to fettle the Brickwerks fleet!
    The T4 has just had its injectors rebuilt and uprated ready for its imminent remap (followed by complete new livery when time allows).
    Iltis has had loads of niggly faults fixed ready for some proper use over the winter.
    T3 Atlantic is mothballed away from the elements.
    Porsche is still sat in the "not interested corner" waiting for time/motivation.

    Busy busy busy

  • Simons Westy Atlantic featured in camper and bus.


    Well pleased with the outcome!


  • T3 rear seatbelt kits back in!

    Woo yeah!

  • Nightmare few days.

    It's holiday time, so staff are on their jollies, not a great time for the other half of the workforce to come down with some evil viral tonsilitis thing.

    We were meant to be closed weds/thurs anyway for family reasons, but this also put me out of action on friday too.

    I've come in on Saturday [unheard of !!] to try and shift the backlog, and all the stuff going by royal mail will leave saturday, hopefully for a Monday delivery.

    All items going by Fed-Ex will be picked and packed, logged onto Fed-Ex's system and ready for collection on Monday hopefully for a tuesday delivery.

    Really sorry about people waiting for parts, nothing we could do.

  • Another big delivery from Bilstein


    Just landed. After being embarrased by the lack of availability a few months ago, we dont want to get caught out again!

  • Update! - T3 Rear seatbelt kits

    A few of you will be aware that our old supplier of the belt reels for our OE style rear seat belt kits stopped manufacture of our reels last year.

    Since then, we've been hunting for a suitable reel which will work with the factory mounting points, and is of a quality we'd be happy to rely on to hold our family in place.

    Well, we found a manufacturer last month, have recieved a sample, and have now placed an order for a large quantity of reels. Kits will be back on the webshop as soon as they arrive. We'll be looking at weeks, rather than months.

    More news here as soon as they land.

  • Freebie stickers back!


    Weve been that busy we ran out of freebie stickers to send out with orders! We have more now though :-)

    Prices are "sensible"

    All the T3 kits are brande new and come complete with cover plate, friction disc and release bearing.

    Details from their press release...

    Black Diamond Performance are pleased to announce their new range of Performance Clutch kits - Fast Road, Fast Road/Competition and a full Race Paddle Clutch - a broader range than we have ever offered before!! Where there’s more engine power at one end and better road grip at the other, a clutch that can deliver without slip is needed - look no further! The higher clamp load of these clutches is designed to cope with increased torque and higher engine revs.

    For those of you who want to push your road cars to the limit our Fast Road Clutch with its organic drive plate made from very high heat resistant robust material (spiral woven glass fibre with a heavy copper core) is ideal. Made for use with a standard or mildly modified engine - where torque and engine revs are 20-25% up from standard. It’s a great replacement for the standard clutch, hard wearing, with smooth engagement and burst strength of 9,000 rpm.

    Our Fast Road/Competition Clutch is dual purpose - flexible enough to be used on the road yet performs well on the track. Made from 100% kevlar the drive plate is lightweight with a higher burst strength than the Fast Road - strong and capable of withstanding the high temperatures generated by competition speed. This clutch is designed for high revving engines where the vehicle’s power has been increased 25-30% above standard. So for spirited drivers who dare to enjoy track days as well the skill of fast road driving and competitions this dual performance clutch is a great option.

    Race Clutch, these five or six paddle clutches designed for use with highly modified engines (up to 40% above standard) have cerametallic friction surfaces which can cope with more power and deal with heat more efficiently, they wear at a slower rate, and have stainless steel backing plates. Designed for high-energy applications - a great clutch for competition driving including track day but can also be used on the road.

    All our clutches are designed as direct replacements to standard units using the original manufacturer’s bolt holes, no modification of the flywheel is necessary and the standard clutch release mechanism can be retained. They come with either sprung or a rigid drive plates according to whether the car has a single mass or dual mass flywheel, ensuring that the car’s drive line system is protected from shock loads on the drivetrain.
