Re: Good news .

Every car show, steam rally and event which I have looked at going to for next year, and which I've been to before, have all been cancelled, every one. I guess that they have to start organising them around now, but with things as they are they simply can't. Hoping for them to start again in 2022, b...

Re: Who Remembers?

I was always making stuff as a kid, including decorations like these, great fun :) Ask a kid to make something these days and the reply will be 'can't you just buy one'.

Re: transmission jack

Don't forget the Burton postage prices - double the order cost, increase it by your age and add the number you first thought of.

I'm glad you found the photos useful.

Very much so. If you don't mind, and if you can, please would you be able to take a picture of the lowermost fixing/bracket.

You reminded of this thread Andrew -

Good find, I see these cars (not a Capri one) at shows and they are always at a premium price.

Wouldn't it be great to have this one, if money was no object.

Re: Inner Wing Guards

Not the best photos, granted, but they are the best I can do at the moment! They are perfectly fine, thanks again, the guards have obviously worked well, your car is immaculate under there, perfect, like brand new (no doubt also due to the care and time you give to it), looking at cars like your an...

Re: Inner Wing Guards

Thanks very much Martin, superb advice. I am quite sure that these would not fit perfectly on my car and that I'd have to alter things to some degree, it's one of the things I am worried about so your mention of using a door seal is excellent, never considered that.

Inner Wing Guards

Anyone know how these fit, or have them fitted? They were standard on some models. I assume the rubber edge butts up to the profile of the wing, but can't understand what secures it or what it fixes to.

Re: Anyone agree with the Rocket?

I think Hamilton is becoming a nausiating little turd with all his black lives matter rubbish. Politics must be kept out of elite sports. The British have been incredibly successful in F1, could even be our best sport, from the top of my head I could probably name 6 or 7 champions. You can have som...

What I am struggling with now is shipping body panels, small stuff isn't an issue but wings, bonnets etc, there's no chance.

Re: Dukes Of Hazzard Car Spotted

I was amazed to see this car again today on my local roads, twice. I was able to give him the thumbs up and he replied with the Dixie horn. Made my day that.

Re: Sill Drain Holes

You all seem to have missed the fact that Paul looked out his window at the crappy weather and thought, "I know, I'll get someone else to roll around under their car for me, while I sit in the dry with my laptop and a hot cup of cocoa." :xd: :xd: :xd: Martin that is totally untrue and I resent that...

You made me Google it -

After a traumatic downfall and coming close to death from overwork, Beauty at last finds a home in a beautiful spot with people who will care for him for the rest of his days.

Very apt!
