Hello from croydon

Postby Swijesiri » Sun May 26, 2019 5:16 pm

Hi all

I thought it was probably time to say an overdue "hello" to all on this site, espescaily as I've been on here for a while and had bought my 71 pick-up in November 2018 from a very nice gentleman from this site up in Scotland.

I had been saving and looking for a while and when Morry finaly came up it, it was worth the effort getting him back down to Croydon here in south london.

Hi,
Nice looking Pick-up you have there.
Funnily enough this makes it one in and one out then, as I drove Sally, my 1954 4 door splittie, home from East Croydon last year.
Best wishes,
Mike.

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,
Mike.

Just seen this recommended for waterproofing the door cards backing boards, what do others think?

I wouldn't bother with all that. make sure the car is watertight and the door cards will be dry.
