  1. Hi Chris, Not sure if you have Caterham branded crotch strap, but this blog may be helpful to you: https://www.caterham7diaries.com/post/crutch-strap-install Regards, Jim
  2. Welcome to usa7s Steve. I am assuming you have a windshield, since you didn't say you have aero screen. The inspector is making an incorrect assumption about the rocker switch; my 2020 420R came from the factory with an aero screen, a rocker switch and no wiper motors. The rocker switch is there because Caterham wants to simplify their manufacturing process, they delete the wiper motor and related assembly as a cost savings (that isn't passed on). In fact, it has rocker switches for heater, heated windshield etc.; using the inspector's logic you would need to add all those options because
  3. Thanks Croc, I agree about Jo, she's been very responsive on the other products I purchased from Oxted. She did not respond this time, but both you and John suggested a call, so I'll do that next week. Jim
  4. I am looking for a source for carbon vinyl material to match the pattern in a standard Caterham Carbon vinyl tunnel cover. See here: https://caterhamparts.co.uk/tunnel-tops/6088-tunnel-top-carbon-vinyl-s3-mazda-gearbox.html?search_query=tunnel+covers&results=80 I have contacted Oxted Trimming but have not received a reply. I only need enough to cover a tunnel cover. Does anyone have a suggested source for this material? Thanks, Jim
  5. WOW, what a skill set you have! Thanks for sharing this build with us. Jim
  6. NeoBear, There is an ongoing discussion in the Pacific section, the thread is called Cannot Register in CA! Good luck, Jim
  7. Of course there is always this option: I had custom seats in my two previous S3 Caterhams. At 6'4" and 220 lbs the custom seat was the only practical solution for me in a S3 chassis. I have the leather seats in my new 420r SV.
  8. Vlad, Although currently Caterham will only sell kits with brand new engines, at the time your car was built most buyers (or regional Caterham dealers) sourced used Zetec engines. Then the "third party" (required for legality in US) often massaged the engine. One particular builder hand stamped the block with a unique alpha numeric code. Before the 420R, I owned a 2004 Caterham with a Zetec engine; it was hand stamped with the 8 digit, alpha numeric code; for example # XXXX ###. I was able to learn my engine was ... "a 202hp setup with the TWM manifold, Pectel engine managemen
  9. Hi, If anyone is building an SV chassis, with lowered floors, AND has not yet installed the console cover, I would really appreciate it if you could measure the distance from the floor to the top of the chassis frame where the e-brake is installed. I am considering a custom console cover that would be as low as possible. Thanks, Jim
