Re: engine swap

Bill,

if it were my car (and it was driving ok) I'd wait until a complete 3.8 engine became available. You will then have a complete 4.2 engine to sell.

Re: OTS Door Glass

Its flocked on the inside where the glass runs and rubber on the outside. The ears are on the outside. We buy it from Hutsons. Both single eared and double eared are available (and no Rory, I don't want to get involved in selling this stuff! :wink: )

Re: OTS Door Glass

We use the glass guide with 2 ears. You have to put up with a window being a bit tighter than normal until you wear it in though.

Re: Metal circle on windscreen!

Glad everyone seemed to enjoy their time with us and thank you all for making the effort. It would be a privilege to host another one next year. Angus, Barrie, Leon and...

Re: Before and after

But the tyre dressing comment made me think. Does anyone have any magic tips for tyres? For us polishing-obsessed weirdos, that's the equivalent of asking Angus to give away his secret for getting petrol tanks to drop in first time without losing the skin off your knuckles.... :wink: It’s simple, I...
