Oh well, at least you can use one of the screws and cup washers to fit the strap to the seat back! :-?

Re: Rear shelf

Most times the leather strap rots over time, breaks, and the part that clips over the stud is lost. The then owner decides to screw the seat back in place as a quick fix. I made a new leather strap for mine (which is screwed into the rear of the back seat - you may find a clue to the original strap...

Re: positive to negative earth

Not that I'm aware of; both are simple items that should not be polarity sensitive. You haven't said what age/model the car is. The really early ones i.e. MM and perhaps early Series II (?) need a few tweaks to things like fuel gauge, but from the way you're talking, I'm guessing it's not that old. ...

Re: Rear shelf

Many thanks :)

I suspect when it's been recovered in the past the strap has been missed off. ...
I've just been out and looked and the seat back is screwed in place from within the boot.

Re: MMOC Nationals online payment - click carefully!

I had some fun booking. Having never been to a Rally before, I had a couple of small questions about the booking form, so emailed the Office. The response was to get a phone call back, but I wasn't in, but eventually I managed to call the office and sort it out. Then having completed the booking for...

Re: Rear shelf

Just spotted this topic, so thought I'd add to it. Basil is a '55 series II and the shelf appears to be very thick cardboard; for some unearthly reason which I cannot fathom out, there a fastener post in the centre, like the sort of thing you might see on a open top sports motor.... :-? Anyone got a...

Re: Spotted today.

Went to my local Hospice Spring fete today, first time they have invited Vintage and/or other cars to display. I think there were almost as many cars there as Stalls. I wanted to have a word with a Triumph TR6 Owner, but I suddenly realised the car was gone. With his bonnet up, I noticed his battery...

Or just a beema towing a trailer Just to give people a bit of closure on this, it was on a trailer being pulled by a Grey/Silver SUV BMW, but I wouldn't know if it were an X2, 3, 5, 6, or 7!! It wasn't a 1 or a 4 as they are more saloon looking. I'm assuming an error on the Trailer Reg plate ...

Re: daft question

Why do you need the Ign on?
If it's just one circuit you're trying to work on, why not power it directly from the battery, via a suitable fuse of course.
I can't imagine what you're doing if you require the whole thing powered up....

Spotted a nice clean looking Mk 1 Ford Cortina GT1500 on the A1 yesterday... though it's currently on a SORN so not a runner most likely.

Re: Rolling tax exemption

Vehicle excise duty should have been added to the fuel years ago. It is the only fair way of dealing with it. The more you use the roads the more tax you pay and nobody can avoid paying. That's the way it is done here in France and petrol prices are similar to the UK's. People still think it's to d...

Spotted over the weekend in Nottingham. Bit of a curio so I thought I'd post it here....

This one is in natural polished Aluminium but it has the Blue/Red Stri...
