Hi All
After many years, kids etc. I bought another roadster. The last one was a Triumph Spitfire. I am now the owner of a 1994 BRG with the C package. I have a couple of questions:
1. The car was sold new in Canada painted BRG (code HU). Was that colour sold in the US or just in Canada and England?
2. I pulled the cover of the headrest speakers the plastic screens are covered with a black sticky goo. What is it?
3. After stitting for a week on start up it sound like a tractor. After a few seconds it quiets down to normal. Oil presure is OK. Is this normal or is maybe the wrong oil or what? It's scary all that clanking.
Thanks
Paul

hey your pretty close! im out in richmond. and yea not starting it for a week with the cold weather we've been having, there would be no oil on your top end for a few seconds. thats what the tick is. if it goes away fast enough its no issue. did you change to a thinner oil for the winter? no need to try and push thick caramel through your engine
