Re: Tyres

Ha ha...depends on your view on originality, driveability etc! Lots of opinions have cropped up on here over the years. I’ve got 155 radials on the trav, and 165 radials on the saloon ( on suitable van rims). Works for me :D

Re: 803cc to 1098cc Swap

I’d be interested in a good 803, as a spare for my A30.
Parts are getting harder to find, so I’ve started hoarding.. :lol:

Re: Damp

For years I’ve used (fresh!) cat litter, tied up in an old sock. Absorbs damp efficiently and easily regenerated in a warm place.

Re: Petition to help Wythall Transport Museum continue to run their heritage bus service

Maybe it’s just another extremely politically correct posture? Councils are prone to that kind of thing. :evil:
