Re: Protective tape removal from NOS bumpers

Without a doubt,Celly thinners will shift it, put plenty on a rough cloth and go for it.Watch your skin though, don't wear disposable gloves our they will dissolve on contact.Thick orange/brown gloves will work.

Re: Back to where I started.....45 years ago!!

Mike, I quite like the idea of the carport, although it would need to be free standing to allow a trailer with car on through if ever needed.Food for thought.....Ta. John, I thought you had your quota, what would you do with my pup??? You never know what the future may bring......best start a book o...

Re: Flywheel spigot bushing

Re: Mk1 Boot Lid seal fitting - advice needed please

I think the Dining table is preferred, if wife willing, means you can glue and set in the right place without gravity taking effect(seems to be happening with my body, all heading South) Also a train of thought of fittin...

Re: Mot exemption from next year!

Spoke to my pal tonight about the very subject.He is an MOT tester, and I'm afraid, it sounds as if Ted is bang on.The other point he brought up about the "Modified" vehicles is that they may be liable to pay road tax, even if as now, tax exempt!!...Re my mini.Then again, show me a Mini which isn't ...
