Re: Split screen windscreen fitting

I have to say, reading through this (with interest), I'm still looking forward to the challenge but not if I find at the end of it that my 'new' rubber surround fits as bad as this....... As mentioned above, maybe there's some NOS screen rubbers tucked away out there somewhere, perhaps those in the...

Re: Late Horn push

Well..... you are welcome to this one, FOC, bar the cost of posting it, which won't be much, if you want it? It was in a box of spares I picked up some years ago. I've blown it up, so you can see the worst of it. It's shone up okay and the push action is nice and 'springy'..... It looks better 'at ...

Re: Exhaust manifold for 1098

Hi,
I have used MinorParts of Oxford a couple of times before and always found them very polite and helpful, as well as being keenly priced.
So am happy to recommend them on here.
Best wishes,

Re: Traveller 5 speed gearbox,

Hi, I'm assuming this is a ford type 9 unit? If so then there should be a filler plug (image below) but no drain plug unfortunately. It is possible to fit one yourself but you have to watch that you don't drill through the internals when making the hole for it. Here is a link to one option: https:/...

Re: Which Tracker SIM Card ???

Hi, We used to use EE for our gate phones at the entrances to my place of work, as they use a sim card, rather than the old fashioned method of hard wiring them into the onsite telephone system. To cut a long story short we had so much trouble with service / the network, that we got rid of them in ...

Nice little cars, a shame that he had a heart attack and the company ceased trading.

Hi, Here's a UK based eBay link to the retro radio with hidden CD player that 'Bufferzone' provided the US link to above. I have to say I like this, so will probably go for one, unfortunately the radio fitting stage may be a while off yet....... :( Best wishes, Mike. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Clas...

Re: Is he being a bit optimistic?

That said it took me a while to notice the lack of a windscreen, still - there's another thread asking how to stop your windscreen misting up so maybe we have a solution ! So do you recommend removing only the front screen or all the glass, just to be on the safe side? :P :wink: I know, perhaps we ...

Re: beware of low flying bootlids.....

I have seen my own bootlid trying to do this in high winds which made me cautious but I don't think most people would imagine it happening if you haven't seen it (or experienced the drop) before. A point there, the wind lifted it clean out and up without any sound (apart from the wind), plus the st...

Re: Steering wheel, and B post seat belt anchorage. Safety improvement without destroying character? Ideas appreciated.

My ‘61 saloon and ‘55 A30 have never had belts fitted. I regularly agonise whether to butcher them and install a safety feature that must be of questionable value, given the the design and construction of the cars. Must say, it feels naughty and oddly exhilarating to drive legally without belts. Bo...

beware of low flying bootlids.....

A cautionary tale....... Yesterday I decided to refit my refurbished rear bumper, a straight forward enough task, one of the overrider brackets needed some fettling to get it to fit but otherwise it went well. However yesterday we had high winds where I live, so everything was rattling and blowing ...

Re: Hello from croydon

Nice new door cards there, might be worth weatherproofing the hardboard backing, before they get damp and warp.
There was an article on this subject on here a while back but I can't find it now, hopefully someone on here knows the one and can post up a link.
Best wishes,

Sadly they're not the same as my original BMC stickers which are disintegrating nicely, but maybe they're what you're after. Arrived today from 'Min-e-bitz': DSCF3475.JPG I'm very pleased with them, they give the buckle a nice period look. If I were to get more and fit them again I would trim a bit...
