Re: Hardtop for convertible?

And maybe if you want one you could fabricate something out of this:

(not sure how heavy it would be though, Travellers were aluminium right?)

Re: Problem with memory card no longer locking into video camera

I'd personally advise against Sugru for something like this based on my own experiences, though maybe if you sandwiched some between a cut out of cereal box cardboard or milk bottle plastic it would work as well - that's just going from other cameras i've seen which had the space to do something lik...

Re: Wing Mirrors

I use quarterlight mirrors on my own car which use grub screws (and the quarterlight being closed) to keep them in place, so they can be removed if needed and no additional holes drilled in the car though I will say the grub screws have caused circular scratch marks. You can get the mirrors in both ...

Re: Problem with memory card no longer locking into video camera

If you (or someone you're able to get hold of) has a usb multi-card reader or a laptop with compatible sony slot you could try the card in it. That way if there's anything you want to rescue off it as a precaution you would have that chance and it will tell you whether the card or the camcorder is t...

Re: Fancy something a bit different?

There is also another school of thought that all if this will be too late and we could more rapidly move to synthetic liquid fuels generated from waste and solar power. I'm hoping Bosch succeeds with their efuel (https://www.bosch.com/stories/synthetic-fuels/) and that it works for older cars :) Ca...

Re: Andrew Eggleton vs ESM

I find the search function of the AE site horrendous, in fact its easier to find things on their eBay store than their site. On the plus side they tend to be cheaper than other parts suppliers. I like ESM to buy from but I think it's wrong that their eBay store is alot cheaper than their official si...

Re: Metallic sheen to the radiator water.

Thanks for the response. I put bypass hose but in actual fact its the top radiator hose, guess it's force of habit to write bypass hose :lol: This is the first time I've been at the car since lockdown so the white stuff may have been residue from the last time the hoses were replaced, just can't rem...

Metallic sheen to the radiator water.

Hi, I noticed that the top of my radiator water has an oily/metalic looking deposit to it: IMG_0207.JPG I dipped in kitchen paper, and this is what appears to be making up this strange effect: IMG_0211.jpg If it's rust it's really strange, as it's so thin and while it does rub orange if smudged on t...

Re: Interior Differences Picture Guide: 1963 Duotone Late 948cc vs Early 1098cc

Only just seen these replies as I haven't been on the forums in a few months now. Was the seat webbing holder original, and was it ever used on later cars? I think the only way of truly knowing this would be to watch out for them in early to end of production cars shown in old films etc. and any oth...

That means I get to mention the fast lane as I've never received a Christmas card from you :lol: I was recently re-reading a book titled "The Art and Technique of Driving" which was published in 1965 and written by Pat (Moss) and Erik Carlsson. It makes me wonder when reading the section on motorway...

I just found that saving an image again (from photoshop in my case), even without any modifications to the image itself made the forum correctly rotate it.

This is something I've meant to do for a while but never managed to get decent enough photographs.

Re: Expensive nuts

You see it quite a lot on eBay, sellers making sure you don't think you get a whole wrecked car for £99 - still, not bad all things considered, usually it's only a single nut they give you :D
