Point taken Paul. Perhaps someone on here has an intact used one that you could copy. It could be a little business if you can exactly copy them and knock a few out to sell.
These really are a hateful design. The clips push into the panel then as the screw is tightened the rivenut type thing in the plastic pulls up and "spreads the legs" of the clip, securing it in the panel. Unfortunately the screw then rusts into the rivenut and will not come undone. I struggled for a...

If the shackles are OK, I'd jack the rear up with the axle hanging and check the springs themselves for any fractures etc. Also give them a good wire brushing and possibly a coat of WD40 just to eliminate "stiction" ie friction causing the leaves to stick to each other when they should be able move ...

If you have an address for the purchaser could you send him a formal letter, preferably by recorded delivery, telling him that if he doesn't collect the vehicle within a certain time then it will be sold for scrap. Send him the same letter by email just to make sure he gets the picture. Leaving it w...
The little Fiat "FIRE" engines usually have bullit-proof bottom ends but are prone to head and head gasket failure. You need to have this in mind if the other things don't fix the blackening plug. Good little engines though, rev like hell and quite powerful for their size.
The centre electrode on the blackened plug looks to be shorter and the gap wider than on the "normal" plug. I'd try a new set of properly gapped plugs before condemning anything else. If the new plugs don't do the trick then look into new leads, doing a compression test on the engine or looking for ...

No, it's not right Paul. It looks to have had repair work in that area and would probably just involve turning the covers to the correct position and drilling new holes for the screws. To my eyes the interior looks like it's had a hard life for a 44,000 mile car what with the poor condition of the h...
I always thought a Pinto was a small Mexican bean which makes you fart! Seriously Peter, the USS Hornet I believe is now a National Museum in American due to its legendary WW2 actions. I've never seen it but I did go aboard the USS Constellation in Fremantle, Australia, when it was on its last tour ...

I came across this quite good video walkround of the 50th show which just about shows every vehicle there. It's quite long and the presenter has a fixation on number plates and if the cars were Essex registered but otherwise I thought it to be quite a good representation of the show for those of you...
Going back to the original post I too coundn't care a toss if the woman wants to put her bare feet on the seats. However, there's no way I'd put bare feet or anything else bare on one of those seats having read an article years ago about what public transport seats in London (and probably the same e...
