Re: Drivers seat runner

Hi John, Many thanks, I think it's a bit late now to go out into the garage and take pictures, and I don't think you'd appreciate a phone call after 11pm. Whats the best time to ring you. Cheers. John.

Re: Drivers seat runner

I have some used Mk2 seat runners tucked away in the garage - I can check tomorrow for you if you wish. I can also look for the front tread plate that you previously mentioned as well, if you have not been able to straighten your existing one out! Hi John, that would be wonderful, no, I haven't eve...

Drivers seat runner

I have discovered a crack in the inner section of my drivers seat runner. If any one has a complete assembly for sale, or even an inner, they would sell and post I'd be obliged. I discovered it when replacing the seat diaphragm with a repro one, it was thicker than then fitted. That left me feeling ...

Re: Wanted: Drivers (RHD) sill tread plate

I understand the under tyred look, I had to search to get 80 profile tyres for my Rover P6B, at the time all I could get in 14" were GoodRide as the Michelins fitted were over 20 yrs old and as hard as coal. It was a temporary fix as they had shocking reviews but they stayed on the car. I had heavy ...

Re: Wanted: Drivers (RHD) sill tread plate

Thank you for the hints and tips everyone. Tyres, Mmm I was going to go Firestone 175/70/13, which would give me a slight speedo over read, and lower fuel consumption. I don't like the available Chinese Ditchfinders as an option. If the loft proves fruitful I will definitely be interested. 1300/1500...

Re: Wanted: Drivers (RHD) sill tread plate

Hi John, that would be very kind of you, I have seen a pair of rears on eBay, but no fronts. It is not a rush item for me, just part of the "Jobs noted after purchase" list. I intend to fit new tyres all round later this month as although the current ones have lots of tread they have no date marks a...

Wanted: Drivers (RHD) sill tread plate

I am wanting a drivers side front sill tread plate. Mine appears to have been in an argument with the safety belt catch, and I would like to replace it with one which is not badly battered. Many Thanks, John.

Re: Hi from Lancashire.

Hi Dave, it's a muted colour compared to its stablemate, the Modena Green Meanie. I like my cars to stand out from the crowd. I am getting cabin fever not using my motors and hope the shows and runs will be allowed by May. My friends were trying to get me to join the Straight Six club as they had ha...
