Re: Dukes Of Hazzard Car Spotted

I think they wreaked so many chargers filming the show that classic car peeps started voicing their opinions about the carnage That's only happened in more recent years though Hamish, the show started filming in 1978 and the Chargers used were 1969, meaning of course they were only 9 year old cars,...

Re: Dukes Of Hazzard Car Spotted

Love that car, coincidence I watched the remake 2005 film on Netflix last night, Jessica Simpson makes a fine Daisy Duke :D I've seen that a couple of times too Rob, not a patch on the series, but I was surprised at how much I did enjoy it actually. Far better than the Starsky & Hutch movie, goodne...

Re: Dukes Of Hazzard Car Spotted

Thanks Andy, they don't let you travel far do they! I hadn't seen that, but I have found a Facebook page with someone doing similar but based locally. I live in hope that it was an actual car from the series which I saw though, and I think that's what I shall believe :)

Them Dukes, them Dukes!

The local council also need to spend more on the maintenance of the roads
That's one of the better roads!

Didn't catch the reg, I was too shocked at just seeing the car.

Dukes Of Hazzard Car Spotted

I was amazed to pass what looked to be a very authentic Dukes Of Hazzard Dodge Charger today, on a local road. Never seen one before, not even at any of the shows/rallies. Anyone aware of it, especially in the North-West, can't be many around. One of my favourite TV shows. https://assets.bwbx.io/ima...

Re: There is good news about SUV'S

I thought the 'good news about SUV's' was that they are about to be banned! Horrid things.

I had a MK4 Golf as a daily for around 16 years and over 100,000 miles, was a great car to be honest.

Always nice to fix things for free or very little outlay Paul :cool:
Definitely Andy yes! And in this age of high consumerism and the ideal of just throwing money at a problem, it is very satisfying to find an alternate way to acheive the solution. Very satisfying indeed.

Re: MOT's extended for six months

The ones already given the extension are still being honoured though as I understand it. It's just that those due from August will not be granted the extension as most businesses/garages are working of course and open.

Re: Garage Floor

Superb, good one Andy, yes that looks very similar to mine actually. Except that instead of the plastic strip I have a thick bead of silicione sealant all the way along, both sides.

Just the job that, and it will be there for as long as you want it to be, permanent solution.

A dab of superglue or a cable tie are usually the methods used.
I was thinking of a cable tie on the spindle butted against the bush. Superb, thanks Martin.

Re: Sunroof Handle

This was mentioned a while back in the club magazine. I seem to recall John mentioning that there are three different types of handle. He mentioned also that they were looking at remanufacturing them if I remember rightly. Not sure how far he has got with that though, but it could end up a big sell...

Re: Accelerator Pedal Play

Thanks for the replies guys :) On the carb models, the slack is very often due to the plastic guide where the rod pivots in the bracket on the inlet manifold. The guide falls out and the first part of the throttle movement is you lifting the rod up until it impinges on the bracket. Spot on, it was e...
