Re: Minor Million London Show

It was looking shiny at the show - I didn't think the show was great - only one hall - lots of high end, high performance cars if that's your thing.[frame]Image[/frame]

Re: Car Covers

My Stormforce cover has done well for the past 2 years.

Has anyone used RustBuster's Winter Chrome protection?

Re: Immediate patch for very deep scratch (to metal)

I don't think it was malicious - but no one bothered to leave a note and it's not something you wouldn't have notice doing. Thanks all for the advice, I went to patch it with touch-up but found my pot had dried out and I don't have any thinners!

Immediate patch for very deep scratch (to metal)

Someone has very kindly left their mark on Dodo's front wing :evil:

It's done through the primer to the metal - should I just fill in with some touch up I have until I get some professional care next in about 10 day's time?[frame]Image[/frame]

Re: Minor garages in Cornwall?

I took Dodo to Cornwall the other week and had a problem with the distributor cap on the way down. As luck would have it the local garage Tintagel Motors 1/2 mile from the cottage we were renting was able to get me a replacement next day :D .

Re: I'm 6ft 2in, will I fit into the front seat of a Moggy?

I'm 6'1" and fit in my '65 2-door easily, though I've got Newton Commercial seats that are bolted one hold further back. I'm also quite happy behind the wheel in my '57 4-door with the original seats in the factory standard position.

Re: Car Trackers for Tracing Stolen Cars

I asked this same question a couple of weeks ago
Tracker - GPS vs VHF for stolen vehicle recovery http://www.mmoc.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=55254
GPS & GSM devices are cheaper, but apparently can be blocked more easily than VHF devices.

Re: MY CAR HAS BEEN STOLEN!

This is horrific, it seems that since October to be about one Minor per month that's been taken from the streets of London :x and reported here.

Will keep a lookout in my borough for you.

Tracker - GPS vs VHF for stolen vehicle recovery

Given the worrying increase in classic car theft I'm considering having a tracking device fitted to my car. I know that there are relatively cheap GPS devices available online, but given "you get what you pay for" I'm thinking about spending (quite a bit) more and going for a monitored service. Does...

Re: Daily use classics, very rare now.

I only drive on evenings and weekends as I commute by cycle, however my 2 ladies have clocked up 5.5k over the past 12 months. I see a classic Porsche, Volvo Amazon that get used often locally, but usually at weekends.

Re: Things that make you go AAAAARRRRGGGHHH!!!

Inconsiderate parking - people who leave massive gaps at the end of a parking bay. Oh and people who over (or undertake in the bus lane) then cut back in front in a 30 or 20mph zone.
