Re: Mk 8 Perspex headlamp covers

I know Stuart Lever (on FB) made some for his Mk8 using the racing blanks as moulds. I believe he is matnrach on here, so I've already spoken to him. On his suggestion I contacted Tim for a pair of racing blanks, but instead Tim offered to make another batch. I'll have to look back through earlier p...

Mk 8 Perspex headlamp covers

To all Davrian Mk8 owners, I have been in touch with Tim Duffee over the clear Perspex headlamp covers which have been unavailable for some time. He is now willing to do another batch if there is sufficient demand, with a price dependent on numbers. He recalls the last batch were circa £60 each side...

Re: Welsh Motoring Festival - Sunday 16th June

Re: 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Davrian marque

If my aim of getting my Mk8 road-worthy for the Imp Club National 2017 holds true, I'll try my best to make this too.

Would be great to see a range of different models and configurations, having only ever seen a couple of models other than my own.

Re: Davrian door handles

Thanks

Food for thought.

Too much else to do right now (like getting a working engine/carbs/exhaust system) so it's not a priority.

Re: Davrian door handles

I remembered why I'd ruled these out originally, they don't have integrated locks do they. So I've ordered and got a pair of Mazda mk1 handles with integrated lock barrels, they look just the job... Cheers Dave Hi I have a Mk 8 and would love locking door handles. It has the lift up catch as standa...

Re: mk7 on ebay noticed

That was only 15 miles from me but I never went along to look at it - looks lovely from the photos. It was re-listed several times but don't know if it ever sold.

Re: Mk 8

Mk 8

Hi all New here and new to Davrians. I've just bought a Mk 8 in white, Q719 WRG. It was a runner until a month ago when the previous owner removed the 998 engine and box and put the car up for sale. I managed to get an 875 Sport engine (minus some ancillaries) and a gearbox in the deal but it needs ...
