Hi All,

Lots of lovely stuff on there but take special note of the cars between 4 minutes and 5.30.

Anyone on here keep Koi Carp?

Hi All, Very, very off topic but a friend of mine is re-doing her garden and hoping to fill in the pond. Trouble is there are 3 large koi carp in there that she needs re-homing.

Parts Transport Required

Hi All,

Long shot I know but is anyone travelling from St. Ives, Cambridgeshire and coming passed Stansted Airport in the next week or two?

I may need a set of 5 wheels (no tyres) collecting and bringing down.

Can anyone oblige?

Thanks for looking!

Re: Spotted today.

2 new 'spots' this week, anyone on here? My folks saw an orange (!) Pick-up in Poringland near Lowestoft, Suffolk. Today, in Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire, I glimpsed a two-tone, white and lime-green, 2-door saloon with the spare on the boot-lid and possibly a roof-rack too? Unfortunately, I only go...

Parts Payment/Collection from West Kingsdown, Kent?

Hi All, Perhaps a long shot but is anyone willing and able to pay for and collect a pair of wheels from West Kingsdown in Kent and keep them for me until I can arrange a courier? The wheels are on E-Bay and I won't bid until I know collection is possible. Trying to keep my options open....... Thanks...

Re: Galvanising the floorpan

wonder about Zinc metal spray then? Hi there! I am restoring a 1950's 4-door at work at the moment and the owner has had the (rebuilt) lower half of the bodyshell sand-blasted and hot zinc sprayed. Without paint the zinc spraying is guaranteed for at least 10 years. It leaves a very good surface fo...

Re: Spotted today.

Not spotted by me but by my folks in Halesworth, Suffolk. No pics unfortunately.

Green Pick-up with non-original back and vertical exhaust stack(s) behind the cab. Sign-written 'Northall'.

Quite distinctive!

Anyone on here?

Aluminium Primer Recommendations

Hi All,

I'm going to be painting the alumium interior panels over winter.
Years of storage in a damp garage have turned the ally surface all furry :evil: :D

Can anyone recommend a good brush-on aluminium primer that isn't too expensive?

Thanks for the advice.

Re: N. London Branch Rally, Capel Manor - September 9th

I spoke to Roger at the Nats.
Seems his wife has not been well lately and she deals with the entry forms.

Looks like I will have to 'pay on the day'. I hope they let me park up first. Could be a long queue behind otherwise........ :lol:

N. London Branch Rally, Capel Manor - September 9th

Hi All,

North London Branch Rally on September 9th

Can someone confirm that this show in Enfield is still going ahead?

I haven't received any pre-booking forms so I assume that it is turn up on the day and pay?

A grand day out and too good to miss!

Ta!

Martin :D
