Re: Spares for Turner 803 Restoration

It may be worth joining http://forum.retro-rides.org/ as often things in peoples spares collections may not be openly for sale till you ask in the wanted section or put a message in the main forums section also quite a few people have old cars on https://www.mig-welding.co.uk/forum/forums/the-brew-r...

Re: Spares for Turner 803 Restoration

Hi Ed, are you in touch with the Turner owners club? I went to a small meet a few months back at Bantock park they seemed like a helpful bunch of guys. http://www.turnersportscars.co.uk/

Pair of door skins

I have a pair of door skins L/H and R/H to fit a 2 door/traveller they are not made from thin metal but i have no idea what make they are, So i will call them a pattern type rather than claim they are bang on, They have no paint on and have been wrapped up in bubble wrap in a room so have slight sur...

Re: Car painting with spray cans

I have seen a mini painted with an Earlex HVLP spray gun kit which looked quite good considering the kit only cost around £50, I have 2 Sealey HVLP gravity spray guns that work very well and use low CFM, The spray cans are OK but never seem to give a good depth of paint.

Re: Spotted today.

A couple of spots from yesterday's monthly meet at the Old Waggon & Horses near Kidderminster. The green 2-door is a local car with 43,000 on the clock. It's for sale at £5,500 but no phone number on the advert! Couldn't find the owner either.20181029_180645.jpg20181029_180718.jpg The black travell...

Re: Nutrition information.

I have been veggie for quite a long time and the best i have found for flavour and texture is Linda McCartneys Mozzarella burgers and if you can find a Home Bargains place they are £1 for 2 burgers.

Re: Spotted today.

Monthly classic car meet at the Old Waggon & Horses near Kidderminster. No Moggies except for Max but this 1963 Austin J2 7-seat mini-bus caught my attention. It was on it's first outing since 1998. Must be a challenge to drive as the floor gearchange has 1st and 3rd closer to the driver than 2nd a...

I was told certain phones could have new software fitted to turn them into tracking devices that also took pictures and listened in, never found the info though.

Re: Modern cars

The newest car i drive is a 1996 imported Toyota Granvia, It is a people carrier based on the Toyota Hi-ace van, I wanted something that held 5 people and a wheel chair and you still had plenty room in, It has electric blinds 7 seats and 8 cup holders and a table, I paid £2,700 for it about 10 years...

Re: New member and "Anybody know this car"

If i was going to buy a traveller i would take someone along who knows them well, There are plenty around that look nice but when you get close up have poor woodwork, I would look at buying a car from a long term careful owner rather than a garage but that is just me, The last one i looked at for my...
