Meeting Report 1-March-2017

Braving the cold March winds, and a few April-y showers, we met in the Kingsley Hotel to talk about plans for the months ahead.

Items discussed:

  • Change proposed to date of Ballylickey event. New dates 22/23 April. We will need to book rooms soon.
  • Windsor is coming up fast, so members were making arrangements to meet and travel together.
  • Plans being made regarding cars to bring to the Terenure Car Show – John O’D updated us.
  • David told us about his work on the wire wheel spokes, and that generated a discussion about other people’s experiences. Larry suggested adapting a ring spanner to do less damage to the chrome on the spokes.
  • Larry has further work done to his XK120, on his bespoke rear indicator mechanism, and his method of eliminating oil leaks from around the nuts on the rocker-cover at the top of the engine, using gasket sealant (e.g. Dirko sealing compound) under the copper washers.
  • Pat talked about the adapter he put on his S-Type to be able to use a spin-on oil filter.
  • David told us about a radio mobile – hidden in the cars – not installed yet
  • Tadpole radio discussed
  • Blue tooth is very good Bernie loves it?
  • Wexford National Heritage park a potential visit for the event, Johnstown Castle on the Saturday.
