    I buy the standard, undiluted, Blue 'Glycol' antifreeze. I think the last lot I bought was from my local Halfords. Mixed 50/50 with water. I try and use rain water as the tap water is a bit hard...

    David,

    I've done a bit of cycling up the west and north coasts. Agree that Applecross and Plockton are worth dropping into (and the pub in each too). If you turn west at Shiel Bridge you can go up...

    If you did wish to change out the bi-metalic flasher for a relay type unit then it isn't that difficult. You will need to run an earth wire to the relay.

    Free MOT

    I wouldn't suggest Halfords Autocentres for MOTing your Cobras but it may be worth considering this offer for your everyday motor if an MOT test is needed between 21st May and 21st November 2021....

    I do like the thinking but probably best to find something other than modifying a smoke alarm. They use a small radioactive source inside the smoke sensor.

    Here are a couple of pictures of the Cobra at an East Midlands meet back in March 2015. The owner back then went by "Marsh" on this forum.

    I have solid bushes holding my rack in place. Not sure where they came from but they've been on the Cobra about 30 years. I did replace the U-bolts and Nylocks some years ago.

    Hi Fred,

    Have you found a chassis number?
    Early DAXs had it stamped on the top of the chassis cross-member in front of the engine crank pulley. Might be something like "BOP n nn".
