Re: Mk 8 Perspex headlamp covers

It might be worth trying to contact 'matnrach' a member on here, I believe he made his own for his Mk8?

Re: Mini based davrian

Sorry I haven't got a Mini engined car for sale although I do know of two here in the Devon/Dorset Area! As you will be aware there were only a few originally made with Mini engines and some of those have now been converted to other engines, so they are nearly like " rockinghorse poo" . So have you ...

Re: Davrian register VKM180H

Hi Richie, I think you had a slip of the digit, your Mk8 was originally owned by the late Rob Barkesfield and was a great car having been further modified by Tony Freeman before your ownership. I was very sad to hear of your loss of the car after having travelled on the road in it with Rob in about ...

Re: Davrian trailing arm pivot brackets

I would think the main thing to do at both front and rear would be to set up with a little toe in initially with maybe 1/2 degree negative camber ( you certainly don't want too much camber on the front because it will go more negative under braking anyway). I'm certainly no expert, you will probably...

Re: Davrian trailing arm pivot brackets

Hi Chris,
I think you may need to use shims between the brackets and the monocoque, in fact you will probably need to do this to get the geometry correct, particularly the toe in. Your car is looking very interesting and should perform very well with that powerunit.

Re: 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Davrian marque

It will be good to celebrate 50 years and get a good gathering of Davrians. John were you intending to just have an informal gathering, or register as a club display, looking at the CC website suggests that club displays are only for rally type cars? (Yes I know some Davrians are rally cars but the ...

Re: Mk7 Windscreen

Hi Steve, I didn't know you had a Mk7, thought you had a Mk6? I don't have all my Davrian 'stuff' available currently, we're in the middle of a major house refurb and living in the new garage workshop. From memory the screen for a Mk7 and 8 is from an Alfa Romeo Guilia from late '60s early 70's and ...

Re: Davrian in Complete Kit Car magazine

Yes interesting to see the article with a few 'new' photos alongside others that have been published before. The ex Bernard Porter MK 7 with Mini engine is refered to as a 'Demon' and appears to sit on the same wheels as now, although the current owner Jeff needs to put in a bit of work to get it lo...
