Re: Mirrors: doors or wings?

The wing mounted mirrors on my Mk2 look great - but are completely useless.

I'd go for door mounted mirrors.

Re: Chris Witor - Parts to buy (Xmas List)

Ignore the engine/bodywork for now and assume the 2 litre lump and bodywork will magically repair itself. These aspects don't come into the budget (I need the bl**dy thing to go and TRE is close and I'm hoping Mr Shackford will do me proud). So - If I was replacing the struts - which springs? What o...
