Definitely!
I'll be leaving home nearly 2 hours before meeting Rob. The roads should be pretty empty at that time on a Sunday morning.... :D

Re: John's Inspection and Injection !

A good detail spray and decent micro fibre cloths are the way forward John :D Hosepipes, buckets of water and sponges are really out of date now :cheers: :agree: I'm sure I remember John using a waterless wash and wax at the Nationals a few years ago. I think it was Meguiar's, no less! :D Andrew.

Re: Haynes Breakfast Meets 2019

ok if I use you as a satnav again please? :D Hi Rob, It will be a pleasure to see your superb 2.8 every time I look in the mirror! :D By my calculation (actually the AA route planner) it will take almost 2 hours from the Hotel where we meet to Podimore services, so we will have to meet up at 05:30 ...

Re: John's Inspection and Injection !

I agree, John's car looks superb.
Now John is almost obliged to do more than chuck the occasional bucket of water over it to keep the car looking so good! :lol:

I trust your car met with John's approval too?

Re: Waking up

Hi Peter, Your 2.8 looks as good as I remember it from Brooklands! I bet you're pleased that it was able to be awoken from it's slumber without any issues. It's funny that you forgot to replace the air intake pipe, but why did you need to remove it in the first place? I hope you remembered to move y...

Re: Haynes Breakfast Meets 2019

As last time, meet at 07.30 Podimore Services. Then convoy to Haynes so we can all park together :cheers: Good plan. It worked perfectly last time and we got some great parking places despite the meet being very busy. I can't wait to finally get to a show. I used to have QS to keep me occupied thro...

Re: Capri Spotted on TV

Another unlikely Capri TV spot, this time on "Dom on the Spot". For anybody who is not familiar with the programme, here is a short synopsis: Dom Littlewood goes on patrol with various law enforcement agencies and the officers explain to him why they have issued fines for various misdemean...

Re: Thermostat of death

Great news that you car has passed it's MOT with no advisories Noel, now you're ready for another year of motoring joy! I've had exactly the same thermostat issue that you've illustrated here. The aluminium castings seem to be quite weak at those lugs and are vulnerable to overtightening. Thank good...

Re: New Car Show

Thanks for the heads up, Paul. It sounds like an interesting show, albeit a rip-off of the format of James May: The reassembler, although that's not a bad thing. I hope the producers have made a genuine reality show, if you like, without the celebrities getting into any manufactured mishaps for the ...
