Corky's Scimitars (..and now an SS1 race car build)

I think it's a quirk with iOS devices and their photos - I believe Ian has it on his list.

GTE/GTC front indicator lens screws.

I think I went though this exercise - tried M3.5, BA but to no avail. I think they might have been the UNC based on the pitch (I don't have thread gauges sadly) but working with what I had to hand, they got drilled and tapped to M4..

GTC upper wishbone bushes

I'd go with OE rubber to be honest - Poly one's don't seem to last the lifetime that you might think. I've seen as many dying poly ones as rubber one as they just don't behave the same.

Would you buy a Scimitar with Webasto sliding sunroof?

My first 5a had one and I loved it - only downside was the wind deflector than had got a little "lazy" with age. It didn't leak so that probably swayed my opinion. If they're in good order (or just need the outer recovering as they do from time to time as they are vinyl and will shrink over time), t...

funny thing about this place

Ronnie, At least 3 of those are deceased but their accounts (and posts) won't be removed. As my time on the forum is voluntary (as is everyone else's) I don't have the time to sort through a possible 300 or 3000 replies if they do respond. There are a few members who return after 1/2/5 years away fo...

funny thing about this place

Before Admins approved every new member on the forum (as we do now), the occasional spambot or spam poster would get through, post details of the "genuwin Raybanns" or whatever, then we would clear out the junk posts, and delete the user/member. Some still exist as dormant accounts though - they sli...

funny thing about this place

The number of members is accurate although not 100% of them will be real people.

We do cull inactive (and never posted) accounts from time to time.

There are more than 10% of the users who are club members (over 1000) if that answers one of your questions, but that does include lapsed members too.

The coil might be "hot to touch" but that could only be 50 degrees which isn't "too hot".

Does it actually misbehave now?

In the bar....

This isn't a political forum - jokes or otherwise - so time to lock this before it may get out of hand.
