Re: Laser + GL

Thanks for the birthday messages guys, sorry for not responding sooner I've been away in Rome for the week! What mods did you have to do to get your 1600 up to 103 bhp ? That's a very figure for a 2 litre Pinto let alone a 1.6 To be fair I'm really surprised and happy its pushing 103, it's got a sta...

Re: Dash Protectors

My dash has more cracks than a strip club or building site, so don't think I need one of these but they do look awesome!

Re: Weather Strip Replacemet

I must say that I tried to get the door cards off first (drivers side) but couldn't get the door release latch off. I pushed it forward but barely moved, the more I tried the more it moved. I will try again when I get chance and all write it up. I took some photos of the inside of the door with wea...

Re: Laser + GL

Hi Danny, I'm not surprised that you are pleased with that, it looks like a high quality bit of workmanship. It was a bit of a gamble going the stainless route, but it looks like you've made the right decision. Andrew. Thanks Andrew, I'm glad I did it as well - knew it was a bit of a gamble but loo...

Re: Breakdown Cover

What I always do is hop between RAC/AA each year - they always want to bump up the renewal prices but if you change every year then you get the benefit of the 'new customer' discounts/bonuses that they offer every year! I am tempted to start using Greenflag as well and rotate every three years as well

They might be able to re-core the rad for you and it's reasonably local. If they're any good I've got a couple th...
