Re: Open Day April 2019

Thanks Angus and crew for a great meeting. Good to put faces to names and view so many outstanding examples.

Special thanks to Jeremy for showing us his exceptional example and to Catusman for crawling around on the floor showing me correct jacking points :-).


Cheers

Re: Front Screen Side Trim Fixing

Thanks all. Any recommendations for a refurb / chrome company in Herts. Looking on the web there are some in Herts but reviews seem mixed, a recommendation would be good - thanks.

Re: Front Screen Side Trim Fixing

Thanks Chris - just ordered some of that.

Fitting I presume is a case of the top and bottom flange stick over the screen rubber and the long side piece tucks under the rubber where possible ?

Pics of a correctly fitted one appreciacted for reference.

Thanks

Front Screen Side Trim Fixing

Hi All First of probably many questions. Right hand front trim was incredibly lose and heavily scratched so ordered a replacement from SNG Barratt as this sort of detail annoys me. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1855/42532334600_14bd91e520_c.jpg IMG_1337 by John , on Flickr https://farm2.staticflick...

My first E-Type and what a pleasure it is to own, a great drive and stunning looks, already met a few fellow owners and plenty of useful advice received. I will ...
