Last week we had a little Triumph Logo quiz which we will continue for the next few weeks. Please take this unscientific quiz and let me know your preference on the TR Logo and I will try to get some more items manufactured in the future. You can find the quiz on our website. Just click on the Newsletter headline on our main page and go to our internet version of this newsletter where you will find the quiz.
Now is the time to get one or more of our gift certificates to present as a gift for the holidays. If you don't know what to get friend or loved one, then this is the answer. The LBCarCo Gift Certificate is available in any denominations and is always good (There are no time limits on our gift certificates.) You can buy one for as little as $5.00 so they are also great for your club exchange parties. Visit us at www.LBCarCo.com and click on our specials page to find the gift certificates.

Don't forget that you get great savings on all your parts so please visit the Little British Car Co, Ltd, first and order your parts right online with our secure server and $ave! Don't forget we only charge exact shipping costs and do NOT charge any extra handling fees either. One other way to save a little on shipping. If you have an office/business address we might suggest you have it shipped there as UPS does offer lower prices when shipments are delivered to office/business addresses. This savings can amount from $1.00 to $2.50 per shipment depending where you are located. Business out of the home are considered residential addresses by UPS.
Please note: UPS and DHL will not be delivering items on Thursday and Friday this week other than NDA shipments on Friday. We also hope that you are receiving a confirmation from our shippers along with a tracking number when your package leaves LBCarCo. This extra LBCarCo personal service will help you to track your shipments that are shipped from our office.

On the Clik-Adjust front, one of our customers (Rick Astley) has put together a very nice Data Chart for use with the Clik-Adjust, along with detailed instructions and why you should use a Clik-Adjust on how to use it that any layman will be able to follow. We are also looking for more Data to expand this chart to aid our customers with other LBC's. If you have a Clik-Adjust please visit this site. If you have data to contribute we would great appreciate your participation by using the link in the instructions and sending in your data to us. Once we get this information the data chart will be updated to include it for others to use. Rick has put together a wonderful Electrical website for our LBC's which you can find on our LBCarCo Links page. If you have time check it out, you will be amazed at the information that Rick has provide our select community of enthusiasts. Thanks Rick!!!
Our Tech Tip this week is from Bart Hamilton - Thanks Bart ($20.00 will be credited to your LBCarCo account) Please contact us ASAP for further info.
Want to extend the life of those weak (but marginally
functional) lever shock absorbers? Drain the standard 30 weight oil from
the shock (if any is left) and top up with straight STP. It will get an
extra few months (or a year) until you can locate those elusive shocks.
Remember you can earn a $20 purchase credit for each tip that is published in our weekly mailing. Please send your tech tips to me at LBCarCo@LBCarCo.com put the words Tech Tip in the subject line please. If you don't currently have an account with LBCarCo you can still submit a tech tip. We will provide your credit of $20.00 any time you should purchase something online from LBCarCo. Keep those TIPS coming!
