Re: Advice please

Thanks for the replies. I'd seen the MoT history, which obviously can't tell everything (or even very much!), but it told a story which sounded OK. I'm passing by Newbury tomorrow pm so I'll give them a call today and see if I can call in. I'd still be interested in any experience anyone has had wit...

Hello All New member looking for a traveller. Visited Charles Ware today and was delighted by the reception and the time Andy spent with us talking about what we want. I think I understand where they stand in the market. They have nothing in stock to suit us just at the moment so I'm still looking r...

Re: Door catch repair

Glad you found a supplier. Just for reference, these people http://www.albertasprings.co.uk/ have made unobtainable springs for me. They are friendly, reasonably priced considering they are one-offs, and prompt. They wanted to know what my example spring was off so they could make another for someon...

Re: New member and "Anybody know this car"

Had another look at the advert I mentioned in the first post and can see the patched wood. Just for my future reference for when I go to see a car, am I right in that, with the exception of the wood around the wheelarch which is in 3 parts, all other wooden members should be one-piece? Regards Ian

Re: New member and "Anybody know this car"

Thank you. I thought the wood looked a little "dark" in places as if it had been wet. I agree, I don't like varnish. Should the finish be oiled? We are going to be passing within 10 miles of the dealer next week, which is the only reason I found the car. I would like to buy a car which club members ...

New member and "Anybody know this car"

Hello All I'm a new member and live in Buckingham. I've joined the club before buying a car, as I'm hoping for some assistance. I have a mechanical background and have owned several classic motorcycles over the years. I also own an 1935 Austin 10 (hope I'm allowed to mention that here!). I'm capable...
