  1. Car looks great!! thanks for the write up. what did you do with the red interior?
  2. I'm south of your in CT and can't seem to stop going on blats lol! So if you're ever down this way...
  3. thanks! they came on the car and i had been contemplating replacing them with the standard caterham side decals as i work to modernize the car, but i'm having a change of heart lately and think i'll keep them (at least for another season).
  4. thanks. i'm on instagram as well. @mr_afropreneur
  5. a random photo as i prepare my cat for the upcoming season... iphone photo so i'm sure it doesn't hold a candle to some of the full rez shots here!
  6. 1984 S-3 with 14K on the odometer. its the epitome of analog car so i I love it more with each issue i resolve and every mile i put on it. I don't see myself selling...anytime soon!
  7. Thanks @toldfield Will definitely give this a try as mine has been acting up as well. cheers, Des.
  8. interested in that fuse solution as well!
  9. Thanks very much. Took some time but i got everything sorted a few days ago and- had to do clean up some of the old wiring as well. Headlamps, turn signals and brakes work now. For the record and to help someone else down the road. Turn signals- some corrosion on the connectors and some interference with hazard lights. i had to flick the hazard switch on and off a few times after checking all wires. but everything works well now. Also upgraded to LED turn signals. Brake lights- Old brake switch failed. Replaced with new brake switch- it's a lucas spb401 H
  10. Thanks. I've been researching and reading about many funky wiring woes on these cars! At any rate, some progress was made today. I read on another forum about flicking the hazard light switch a few times and sure enough it took a while but then the turn signals started working. Did not have any luck getting the brake lights to work so i'll try some other things tomorrow! I also took off the existing bullet lights since i have the standard lights coming in from redline this weekend to replace them. Plan is to test everything in the back and make sure we are getting power(which i doubt), be
  11. Hi All, THe driving lights work when the headlamps are on but the turn signals, brake lights and reverse lights have not since i purchased the car. As i prepare for the driving season, i obviously need to sort these out. Has anyone had a similar issue and are there common 7 places to check before i really dig into it? The previous owner changed rear tail lights to a "bullet style" when the carbon rear wings were installed so i'll check those out and poke a bit under the dash but i'm not quite familiar with the car you to know what to look for. very analog wiring under the dash
  12. I'll be interested in a set as well for 5-3/4. carbon with white lettering?
  13. I just spoke to Rick and he'll look into it; i remembered he had a set a few months ago and i should've jumped on them!
  14. As title says; in search of 2 seats, preferably nothing beat up. Needs to be mostly presentable; mine is a road car. Cheers, Des.
  15. I hear ya. The bench type are definitely not preferred. I'm definitely looking out for some tillets and regrettably passed on a fairly local deal last year . Do you know if it's a straight forward swap or there's fabrication required? I'm comfortable doing either. Now that i think of it, there are four holes under each bench seat pad that have me wondering if the previous owner had different seats at some point. Will have to investigate.
  16. Thanks for sharing! i was looking at a view yesterday and couldn't quite make out the relative values of each; i get air cooling vs non etc etc. I'll have to see if there's anyone close to CT that offers the ability to try them out. I think that will definitely make a difference.
  17. what kind of seats do you have? mine has "bench" type seats and ive been strongly considering a change to adjustable tillets.
  18. Hi Skip, Curious, what color was your old SV featured in the youtube video? i don't have the color code for my car and it looks almost identical to mine. I'll PM you a photo of the car so as not to threadjack. cheers, Des.
  19. Thanks guys. I'm really leaning towards getting a helmet (his & hers)! i had my baseball cap on last weekend and had it on so tight after almost losing it, i thought i would get a brain aneurysm lol
  20. Curious what others are using for spirited driving? I'm looking to purchase some gear (helmet and gloves) in the coming weeks as the weather gets better.
  21. Also, I recently replaced the tie rod ends with Triumph spitfire tie rod ends. I'm sure it's probably old news to many but i'll post for record anyway- I'm new to the platform and figuring alot of things out along the way.
  22. Anyone know which car the anti roll bar /sway bar rubber bushes come from? they have a tr1616 14 stamped on them. I was thinking triumph? but that's just a guess.
  23. Hi gents, Does anyone have a wiring schematic for a caterham s3 with 1600 crossflow of this period? The previous owner of my car had someone make some modifications to the harness when components were removed at some point. I realized after i purchased the car that my turn signals never worked so while i'm currently upgrading my headlights and installing LED turn signals, i figure it's a good time to sort everything out. Thanks for any help on the matter! Cheers, Des.
  24. I'm in CT and tentatively down for this. Edit: Looks to be about 2:15 minutes from me... whew!
