I fear that first of all, we will be the drivers of the „lung cancer cars“.

Re: Windscreen scratches

To do this job properly, I’d suggest you’d insure it, throw a stone at it, then call insurance for help....

Out to buy a Miata !

... just went out to Hamburg to buy a very early 1990 Miata. Of course the E is still un-painted, because it is very hard to find someone to be brave enough it seems and not be asking silly money for the job. The Miata is red, comes fully equipped, has a Hardtop, 8 tyres, costs 1500, still MOT‘d, an...

Seen in our local mall: lots of objects like this, not that cheap. I thinks its about 15 grand for that. Especially the roof is too low and too flat. And the steering wheel...

Re: Is the end near?

When I bought paint at a shop for my E, I told them for what car it is. The young people there did not raise an eyebrow, just one said after a while he saw one in a car show sold for a lot of money. Then they all vanished behind their mobile telephones.

Re: I‘ve got a problem with a 7/16-20 UNF...

Its the lower bolt, so I fear its not shear but pull..... One idea came up today which is nice - drill nearby hole, large enough to put a nut through. Weld 7/16 nut on thick wire, and fiddle it behind the original nut. Pre-drill the previous nut in M12 so the new bolt would slide through, and fix in...

Re: I‘ve got a problem with a 7/16-20 UNF...

I just did some maths. The M12 at 1.75 will give 9 threads in the 15 mm meat I have. The 7/16 would give around 12. Now, the M12 has a larger diameter, so 3.14x12x9 is a total circumference of 339 something. The 7/16 gives 3.14x11.1x12 wich is 418 something, so it gives 23% more „clamping area“ in t...

....it‘s not in my E-Type, but in my Benz. But it should apply equally to almost any car with seat belts, because 7/16-20 is the worldwide standard for seatbelt bolts it seams?

Re: Nightmare: new windscreen for series 3 OTS

Hi Holger, I cannot really help here - it may be a good idea to order directly from Pilkington UK, and to have the measurements confirmed before shipping. My car, a series 1 2+2, also needs a new one, so IF you order anything from them, please let me know, maybe we can optimize it a bit for both of ...
