I think the excitation wi...

Re: Here's one for ya

It`s referred to as a `set square` (at least in UK) presumably as it enables one to check the corners of a square, or squared piece, are actually 90`: by having a triangle increases it`s versatility as you can also check 45` (or even 60` & 90`). But primarily it`s to check `squareness`, That was a ...

Re: Car seat covers

In my opinion they are a good fit yes. And as Paul G says very comfortable too. You can just use a blanket for the rears, proper old school, like when you used to lie down and go to sleep on the way home from holiday. Blanket must be tartan and draped over the seat backs so as to be visible thru th...

Re: Bonnet Scoop/Vents

If you have a basic understanding of aerodynamics and fluid flow, then maybe you'd consider the other option. Instead of trying to force more air into the engine bay, which will need to displace what is already there, you could consider raising the rear edge of the bonnet instead. The airflow over ...
