It is unbelievable as that's not offensive at all. Who's got enough time on their hands that they feel the need to complain about this stuff? :roll:

Re: Garage prep for B112

So it’s the heat “ who would have thought that “ The heat can be a contributing factor to the paint coming off on the tyres. Parking in the same spot for a long time will also do it. When I did mine, I waited two weeks for the paint to fully harden before putting the cars back in the garage and the...

Re: Ford's 50th Birthday celebration of the Capri

I forgot about Brooklands for a moment... :doh: I think it will be one or the other for me, although with both shows being in September, the final decision of which to attend may well depend on which show has the better weather forecast. The Brooklands show could well have the better attendance, as ...

Re: Heater & Engine Temp Gauge Linked..?

I've just re-read your original post. The heater and the engine temperature gauge aren't linked, sadly. The main suspect for the non-working heater would be the heater motor or it's fuse. The replacement motor is available to buy new if needed although, unfortunately, the job is more difficult and m...

Re: Heater & Engine Temp Gauge Linked..?

Hi, Welcome to rhe forum. I would start with testing/replacing the temperature sender. I'm not sure where they are located on the Pinto engine, although somebody will know. Before buying a new one, make sure that you are getting a 5V feed when the ignition is on. https://www.tickover.co.uk/shop/cont...

Re: Garage prep for B112

Shuold look better with the floor painted. It will be interesting to see how you get on with the floor paint. I would recommend cutting some squares of carpet to have under the tyres when the car is parked. If you don't, you may find that you will have to leave the car outside the garage for quite ...

I agree with that. People seem to be offended over everything and everything these days, even if it doesn't affect them directly. Unless somebody insults you directly, why get worked up over it? Life is too short.

Re: Edd's BACK!!!!!

Hi again,
I found the second workshop used, in a workshop on a farm near Marlow (the cross in the centre of the screen).

Search for "Wheeler Dealers" in Wikimapia where you can zoom in further to see the exact location.

Re: Edd's BACK!!!!!

Just seen in the local news that Edd is turning on the lights in Marlow, which is a small town a couple of miles from where I am. I think the early shows were filmed around Marlow as I recognised a lot of the roads they drove the cars on. I think the two earliest workshops are both marked on Wikima...

On a related subjected, I heard on the news today that Kleenex man-sized tissues are going to be renamed as the name is offensive to women and the other (please specify) people! :D

I don't remember there being more than 2 possible answers last time I filled in a survey. Something like that would have been unheard of, or at least not spoken about if it did exist, back in the 70's.
