Cheers Andy yes your gazebo really stands out also the long flag . Where did your xr club get there bits from ? The club supplies the flag, but a quick google search for sail flags came up with this place among others https://www.sailflags.co.uk/our-products/sailflags/ Gazebo not sure but can find ...

Re: Classics @ Scolton 2018

Do You have a banner on your XR stand andy ? As would love to get one for the forum , I had a look here don’t know how we would display it or even get it to stand up . I don’t know what we would put on it really and if we are not upsetting the man who owns this site ? Any thought ladies and gents ?...

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

It's another show that would be far more watchable without the tosser extra presenter such as Mario. He's this show's Mike Brewer, Tim or Drew. Oh I just wish there would be a show where the person doing the work was the one and only presenter and the work done was the centrepiece of the programme ...

Re: Happy daddy’s day to all

Nice one Jason :D
I got a big bar of Galaxy chocolate :D :guitar:

My son uses some Auto Finesse products for his mobile valeting.

I have Autoglym resin polish but hardly ever use it now, as after I use the car it gets a detail spray that contains carnuba wax, so it's well protected :D

Thanks Andrew,

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

I just watched Classic Car Rescue series 2 Fiat 500. I've been watching these, and I will confess that I quite enjoy it. However, it's another restoration show with exaggerated for the TV drama. There is almost always an unforseen setback that results in a comedy confrontation between Bernie and Ma...
