Re: Adderley Park Number details needed

I’m sure Chris won’t mind me letting you know but I have seen a draft and it is an extremely useful document even with its gaps which Chris has been trying to plug .

Re: Glove box doors

It would not have had any. There was a period in the S2 when the apertures were simply left open then two doors for the S III then open again and only a door on passenger side .

Re: Interior sun visors

(a variation on this from my student days is that lovely burning smell from forgetting t...
