Re: Traveller side replacement - a few questions

Applied the Osmo oil today. Nice to use and looks really good. Dried within an hour in the (very rare) sun.

Re: Christmas Tinsel

Talking of Christmas, if anyone is lucky enough to have a band called St Agnes Fountain playing nearby don’t miss them!
They only do a short annual Christmas tour.

A very ‘70’s thing...there were lots of them! Nice and period looking but almost entirely useless,I think :D

I really hope this doesn’t lead to social unrest,riots etc. The country is split down the middle on this and whichever way it pans out there are going to be millions of very cross people. :(

Re: Christmas Tinsel

They say that you always know Christmas is approaching because you can find Easter eggs in the shops!
Re tinsel...it’s a bit naff but nostalgic. We do it a bit, but great to see the back of it on 2nd of Jan! You can now get non plastic,save the planet versions. But costs more of course.

Re: Bojo the Cloan

I think most people are just fed up with the whole malarkey and want to get on with their lives.
The people voted leave, rightly or wrongly,and it could be years before we know. Parliament seems to be intent on remaining.
I suspect that when the next election comes there could be some real surprises.

Re: A bit cheeky

Personally I'd be laughing at anyone stupid enough to spend over 20 grand on a Traveller! They're not that precious! Best wishes, Mike. Here’s a story,Mike. About 9 years ago we had a bit of free cash and needed a second car for local trips. Ware’s rebuilt us a Trav with sensible upgrades. It’s bee...

Re: Positive v negative earth?

Agreed, makes things so much more simple if you need to fit any accessories...radio, heated screen etc.
The rusting thing sounds like an old wife’s tale though... just ducking my head now :lol:

Re: Minor roadster

Yes, it’s your car so you can do what you like with it. But the purists will go tut tut...and it may well lose value.
Modified beetles though!! But that’s a whole different scene. :D

Re: which tyres?

I think that with the mileage most of us do in our Minors,a budget tyre will do just fine!
My tyres were fitted some years ago,still loads of tread but the rubber is looking a bit iffy. Changing them all soon.

Don’t think the ‘brand ‘ matters. If it’s the same medication and cheaper thats just great!
