Re: Norman Dewis interview

Say,

What if I had the mad idea to send him my glovebox lid - would he sign it for me ?

Re: Pilkington Classic require our assistance

Hah,

I just offered him my 2 Series 1 2+2 windshields...

Now, it means I can simply order a new windshield for my 2+2, and will receive a windshield that fits ?

I still have to measure them for the US forum ...

Re: Pilkington Classic require our assistance

I have two factory original front windshields here which I do not need. Both are dead - one has a deep scratch from driving without wipers, the other one has a large chip. Now, I would be glad to give them away for free - say they could have them both, if we could get the freight arranged ? It would...

Re: Where to get the indicator bolts ?

They arrived today, and they do fit nicely. I got slotted lens-shaped bolts. The bolt vanishes into the dished area in the indicator housing, you need three per side.

No need to cut them, there is plenty of room behind the indicators. I got them in 1“ length.

Re: SNG Barratt User Group

I have a suggestion for the web shop, btw. It just happened to me that I ordered some spares. Inclund the astonishing amount of 20 x M6 washers. Now, they only had 2 of them in stock it seems, because the system asked me that for another 8 Euros freight I could split the delivery and have ALL the ot...

Yeah, but this is metric wonderland, so my local hardware store...would tell me to fahgeddaboutit.

I‘ll try to find them online in england, and by the lens bolts from the suppliers.

Where to get the indicator bolts ?

...I just found that SNG does not sell the front indicator screws (it seems ?) I think there are 2 long ones, keeping both glass and case clamped to the chassis. And I also need the short ones, for the side light lenses. Anyone a source ? I found two long ones, slotted cylindrical head, a bit rusty,...

Diaphragm panels (front) bolts ? Front lamp bulbs...

Today I tried to fit the front right diaphragm panels. All fine, with the lamp already fitted. This worked so far- until I found that the outer bolts are machine threaded as we say- they need the oval washers plus a nut on there end. The inner screws on this panel are all „sharp“, and need a philips...

Oh there are nice parts here up north, like Kassel to Dortmund, or Göttingen to Leipzig... just forget about the A7 north of Göttingen, a lot of jams and roadworks all the time. And the A2, Warszaw to Paris / the german port of it is heavily restricted and checked by disguised police cars all the ti...

Re: Buying MWS wheels

Yeah, but if you don‘t have that luck, you walk home...not drive.

And buy new rims, and have to find a buyer for your „forbidden“ ones.

I am poor, so I cannot afford this to happen.
