Re: rubber gearstick boot

I believe the Stag/Dolly one will do (I think I remember Mr Chatterton used a Stag one on the DEL33) but they're not quite the same.

Re: umm.hello.again...

Am I right in saying these cars are now 2 k a side for cills ... start to finish :shock: Not sure, I'm sure the last I heard was £1500, £2000 probably isn't a bad amount to budget. The main cost of sills is labour so you should be able to save money by doing the easy stuff yourself. If you take the...

Re: Mk1 Tandem master cylinder

Re: Mk2 Front Door Lock/Latch Problem

I'm not so sure about WD40 as a long-term cure. It's intended as a water displacer and can become gummy with age. Range Rover issued an instruction not to use WD40 in door locks for that reason. I've never seen WD-40 go gummy, certainly not as gummy as 30 year old Waxoly in your door locks. Other l...
