Re: Salvage Hunters: Classic Cars Series 2

Don't usually watch this show as I don't like Drew :wank: Pritchard but made an exception because of the cars covered in it. I did learn that 82 model 2.0s had lazer striped Recaro's with fishnets which was a new one on me, I thought most of the post - Carla trimmed ones were just sports seats like...

Re: Fuel tanks - Latest batch now available.

They aren't going to be manufactured indefinitely though are they? Once demand dwindles to nothing, no supplier is going to want to commit to having a batch made.... Andrew. The demand has already dropped off alarmingly from last year. I didn't expect the interest to carry on like the first batch o...

Yes, that only leaves another £2,955.00 worth of parts to take off to break even.

Fuel tanks - Latest batch now available.

I've just been informed that the latest batch or fuel tanks are now in stock at the suppliers.
I will be placing an order tomorrow but it won't be a large one as demand has dropped right off.
Any interest at all?

Just seen it plastered over one of the facebook sites, looks like some mug has fallen for it. Wonder how long before it's relisted?

Re: Capri feature Classic car weekly

Well that was a waste of time then, thanks for the heads up Mark. Ah I didn't realise they had asked you about things. I usually buy CCW and Practical Classics as they seem a bit more interesting then some other publications but naturally I have found they go a bit flat around this time of year. Wh...

Re: Capri feature Classic car weekly

This is exactly what I told the writer, I told him that price guides were not worth the paper they're printed on but apparently the editor has a thing about price guides so that's why there is one.
I've not read the article but I doubt that it is a true reflection of the current scene.

Re: Worth restoring, a few dolly's wil fix that.

That is exactly why I started my business in 1993, even then I could see the vast amount of perfectly good parts being destroyed in this way.
