Replacement carpets

As Andy said, the kits aren't a great fit and suppliers go all ostrich when it's mentioned to them, probably less work to buy a kit then modify but as I found it's the bound edge bits that needed work then rebinding so I figured buy off the roll and DIY getting edges bound as required and save a fai...

breakdown Recovery AA vs RAC or who?

The point of posting really was to merely underline they importance of pushing back at renewal time otherwise these thieving gits get away with bloody murder. 15 million members of the AA. How many forget or are too lazy to pick the phone up each year.. IMO they don't deserve your custom Phil, they...

5a Dashtop Cheshire to Surrey

I'll possibly be in Gravesend on the 2nd July overnight so can get it that far if anyone can pick up from me there, currently crossing at Dartford but may end up going to High Wycombe on way there so happy to bob round M25 anticlockwise as time and distance happens to be the same

E5 E7 E10

That will be because there are lots of non classic cars that are not able to use E7 or E10 I believe and there are several people that I know only have non E fuel compatable cars as daily drivers and I hope most use an ethanol effect limiting additive such as Ethomix by Frost or Millers excellent pr...

Replacement door speakers

By the side of the rear seats is the best place for them Chris, rear panel just won't create adequate bass, I managed to install a set of 165mm component speakers into my 6b in the area that's above the rear side armrest then I had to drill many holes thought to allow sound out, the MB may have spea...

The ViaRETRO Scimitar SE6a

As you can no longer buy Kenlowe (they've stopped retail sales a while back for some reason) I'd go Revotec or Pacet tbh both decent makes, take a look at car builder solutions website

Tatton Park Spectacular

Anders, was good to see yourself and family there as well, not a bad show this year but I'm finding less and less proper auto jumblers present at these shows NEC excepted, is that a case of being priced out or just simply no longer many parts available or lack of demand at these shows these days?

SCISSOR LIFT FOR <£1K 2,268kg

Don't know whether anyone may be interested but costco have a scissor lift for £1k delivered, it's basic but well up to handling a scimitar's weight

You'll of course either need to be a member or know one to be able to purchase it.

TRUNION END CAP SOLDERING

I have always soldered mine in with a blowtorch ( gas ) - never had any problems. Started doing this when the cap came out the first time I greased the trunnion.
