    Hi Geoff. I don't think there is going to be much activity for another couple of months to be honest.

    I think if I were to build another one I would fit as little as possible. Once on the road, start to fit as you progress with your personal 'theme' for the car. As previously said, a car failed even...

    I don’t recognise those as Dax items due to the two into one config. Possibly thought at first that they could be ex Jag V12 ones but a friend of mine has one and they are more curly than those if...

    Mine has a humble 250 bhp and that is more than enough. 130 mph is easily achieved with a 4 speed box and it doesn’t disgrace you off the lights. In my opinion anything over 350 bhp is purely...

    The load rating depends on the weight they are supporting. I had to replace mine on my Dax from Eckold. Not cheap but they were the correct direct replacements.

    Hi Pete and Happy New Year to you and Marion.

    That looks like a slightly different box to mine.
    Today I got hold of a 2’’ square length of box section which I will mount the rear of the gearbox to via some donut mounts. That should do it....

    If the body was just riveted then the rivers would eventually work loose around the fibreglass and cause all sorts of problems. The sealant is added as an adhesive to prevent the above from...

    Dax seats made by Ash.

    Lovely pair of seats I just bought. Very happy with them.
    Mine are built for and going into my Dax. Where do I get seat runners for them? Very narrow mounting between the runners and the mount holes...

    There is a chap who sells these on eBay for about £400 a pair. Very cheap in my opinion but no idea who he is or how good they are.

    I had my single roll bar made. The original Dax ones are very spindley looking at 1 1/4” so I had a 1 1/2” made. So instead of fitting inside the mount tubes it fits over them.
