Absolutely, if you're getting a new one, even better! There's also a couple of people who supply the fixings c/w the correct spreader plates, I bought a new set at the same time to fit instead of the motley assortment of washers that was in place before. And of course they don't need to be too tight.
I'm late to what seems to be a pretty rawkus party... but yes had exactly this when my rocker cover became incontinent. In my case the cover itself was rather uneven, so I spent a lot of time trial and error fitting and tapping it to be something near straight... then a fresh gasket and it was fine.

I think they are planning on extending the MoT dates on the computer system although mine are still showing with the 'normal' dates due -fortunately in July/September. 6 months is sensible enough because there will be a large backlog when the testing regime starts again, with many 'excess' tests nee...
I am fortunate (?) enough that I have reason to get out the house without interacting with people, being classed as a key worker, though primarily working from home at present. The Capri has been off the road for a few weeks whilst I did a few jobs, but will definitely be seeing use soon. I've never...
It's all about common sense. Boris didn't, and couldn't, mention every scenario which every person may face. Going for a solo drive, or in pairs which I also think would be 'allowed' is not causing a risk. You could even classify that as your daily exercise if you drive to somewhere in the country ...

There are two parked within a few minutes walk from me flat, and in another area there is a guy with 4 or 5 in his front garden!

Hi, Sounds great, and yes you're right sometimes you need to just go for something. But it sounds like by nominating a few dates, there's a good chance of people being able to make it - for example I think the first date will be a stretch for me as I'm doing 2 shows the following weekend but will de...
Last week I went to pick something up from Danny, (not in the Capri!) and there were several flooded sections of road along the way. All passable as the water was only just covering the road surface, but still much worse than I'd seen before. Went out yesterday during a brief respite in the rain, in...
On the other hand, surely the tester can only test/fail what can be seen? If it appears in good condition from the other side of the underseal they surely cannot fail it? As to dirt roads... Did once hear of someone who had a few iffy bits on the underside. They stripped and re sealed the best bit. ...
A couple of years ago I got a chip sorted in mine, the glass place checked availability of new screens for me, out of interest. They could get one next day from their warehouse if needed, and said that the specialist pilkingtons service mentioned upthread was available and would cost no more than th...
I ordered a carton, as you say an excellent price. It arrived whilst I was out and a neighbour took it in - apparently they knew who it was for as soon as they saw it, because "who else in the block would order an entire gallon of WD40?!".
I have a 1kg one in the back of the Capri, bracket screwed in the boot. Also have a first aid kit - plasters, paracetamol, etc. Never know when it's going to come in handy!
I am very lucky in that my garage is in the basement of a block of flats and the heating pipes for the flats pass through the garages. This gives just enough heat to stop it being too cold, takes the edge off it to an extent. I've also put two old carpets down on the floor (thanks to having a carpet...
Luckily Danny there are people like you that are enthusiastic about the older cars :) I also still buy CD's for the record! :lol: I also don't get how they've just written off vinyl as it's recently had such a resurgence in popularity they started mass producing them all again And, as it's the only...
