Re: When a plan goes out the window...

Thats brilliant Andrew. So funny mate !!!! He might re-name it The V6 Cafe :lol: That would be something... :D Mike Manning sounds like an interesting chap, I'll do some research. Meanwhile, a visit to Enfield and deepest darkest Kent solved the mystery of the missing signs..... :lol: https://i.pos...

Re: When a plan goes out the window...

There is serious talk of a special organised Capri Day here next summer. I went past today and saw a couple of shady characters parked outside. https://i.postimg.cc/nhTx45SF/Pinto2.jpg When I drove back there later, the cafe looked like this.... :? :D https://i.postimg.cc/fRqFThg9/Pintonosign.jpg A...

That does look like a nice car. As Andy says, people will pay a premium for such a good original condition car.

Cheers Andrew a really good find mate :beer: Hi Jason, Yes, they do good quality items for the trade. I bought some other buffing wheels from the seller on Ebay, but they aren't as good quality as the ones from Moleroda.

Re: Blue plastic lenses in dashboard pod removal

Thanks for replying mate, I tried searching for the 3 watt coloured bulbs but couldn't find them, would you be able to point me in the right direction please, Hi Wayne, I searched for a long time for 3W bulbs in green, nobody seemed to make them.

Re: Blue plastic lenses in dashboard pod removal

Had my dash apart today because of the poor illumination at night, as expected the blue plastic cover's disintegrated with the slightest touch, probably a silly question but would it be possible to 'wrap' the existing bulbs with something like filtered stage light paper which is very cheap and has ...

Re: Project Carla 820

I agreed with the others, it looks like a terrific car with only a few small areas that need attention.
It's great to see you cracking on with what needs doing, I look forward to more updates as the work progresses.

Re: Nice eBay 2.8i

Yes I saw the Tickford ad a few days ago. Nice wet bodywork pictures :? Sorry if the seller is on here, but when will people learn? I reckon that most Ebay bidders don't view the car beforehand, therefore, you have to rely on a really good set of photos. Three more or less identical exterior photos...

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

Did anyone else watch WD RS 2000 rally car? Hi Andy, Yes, I watched it this morning. I'm sure I've seen that episode before though. I get the feeling that the only reason they prepared the car for rallying was just so they could film the Edd vs Mike rally scenes and add a bit of drama for the progr...
