Re: Nice eBay 2.8i

The first link was up for around £25000 somewhere on the web! I know the chap that owns it and did the work on it. That gives us an idea of what the reserve might be. The scam ads are gone :) Thank goodness for that. It won't be long before more appear. I just hope that people aren't so naïve and/o...

I was only filling in the survey because there was a chance to win something or other. I didn't realise the questions would be so difficult... :lol:

That's the irony of it. Brewer clearly believes that he's the star of the show, perhaps he resented Edd being more popular than him.

Re: Edd's BACK!!!!!

Sour grapes or was there more happening behind the scenes than it appeared from the outside?

Mike was talking about Edd not being gracious, but it's hardly gracious bad mouthing Edd like that...

Re: Had an ice cream today ...

Very good!
I can see why you didn't want to tell a male ice cream vendor that you were partial to a bit of Golden Gaytime……

Re: Very nice twist on the pepper pots .

Obviously you can get 15" pepperpot-style wheels, but they don't look quite right. What we need is an exact copy of the design of the 13" versions. .

Re: Dislok

Yet another vote for Disklock here. What I've found with the small size Disklock is that the fit is just a smidgen too loose on the 2.8 steering wheel. The simple solution is to run a thin layer of foam around the perimeter to pad it out a bit. As Andy says, you don't a really tight fit as I think t...

That's why it's best to go with recommendations. I my opinion you just can't take chances when it comes to paintwork.
Martin once told me that his paint man is very particular and the jobs are completed to a very high standard.

Hi Jason,
Are you planning on converting normal headrests to fishnets? That sounds like an interesting project.

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

I wonder if they are real buyers at all or just random people to make the shows :? If they were looking for genuine buyers, I think they should have advertised in Autotrader magazine or something, not on a casting website. https://www.backstage.com/casting/modern-wheels-or-classic-steals-229211/ Th...
