Postby Derv23 on Sat Feb 02, 2019 9:59 am

Hi all , I've 're joined the forum after a half dozen year absence.
My first fronty was a X reg' B series 2.2 . I now have a 96 A Series 2.8 . I've had it since December and unfort a few gremlins have appeared.
I'm glad to be a part of the forum again. I remember it being an active and friendly place.
I live up past Inverness.

Hi and welcome back. Probably some still old faces on here you may remember. A lot of people have moved onto other marques/hobbies as well.

Hi stretch. I'm fairly certain I remember seeing your name about. T'was a while ago now. I wasn't the most prolific poster back then. I had my last fronty 3 and half years and sold up maybe 5 yrs ago so it was maybe 7/8 yr ago I last joined up.
Random viewing on eBay seen me purchase the latest addition.
I had always regretted selling up and have always hankered for another.
I'm fairly happy with what I got but in hindsight I wish I had done my homework before jumping in. It's now a steep learning curve for me :lol: .

Hi , I've heard and it looks like there fairly easy to work on. Fairly basic engines. I travelled a fair distance to view / collect it so I was kind of committed to buy , visible and hidden faults included.
I'll post in the relevant sections , cheers
