The DSG Spares Scheme

A major part of the club's activity is the Spares Scheme. As well as keeping stocks of new and secondhand parts for the Viva range and Chevette, much of our effort goes towards sourcing suppliers for obsolete and hard to find parts, often having them remanufactured where necessary; we're remaking gaskets, hoses, trim, decals and many other parts. We have the original moulds used by DTV and Magard for Sportpart fibreglass components, and can get fibreglass body parts remade. This year we've had the HS four-branch tubular manifold made to an improved design (to be followed by one for the HC range and single cam), begun manufacturing DTV 'works' type cambelt idler / tensioner brackets for the 16 valve engine, found a high-quality piston supplier, and have a number of other projects in the pipeline.

You can get more information on the Spares Scheme by contacting the club (see the 'contacts' page) or through the 'Spares Scheme' forum in the DSG Forums - follow the link. Note though that for various reasons, the spares scheme is only open to club members.

DSG Merchandise

We've got a range of merchandise available, ranging from DSG clothing to replicas of DTV and Blydenstein decals, books including Gerry Marshall and Jeremy Walton's 'Only Here for the Beer', DSG produced videos on servicing the HC range and the Chevette HS, and Vauxhall and DTV publicity videos such as 'Man Against Man', the story of the 1981 Manx International rally, 'Scotch on the Rocks', DTV's experience of the Scottish rally, Pentti Airikkala's first year with the Chevette HS, Gerry Marshall in Baby Bertha and the DTV Group 1 Magnum, and more.

Again, you can get details of all these from the club's Merchandise secretary through the club contact address or via the forums.
