Re: Wheel arch liners/protectors

Hi, I have an all aluminium e type and used sheet neoprene, cut to shape and glued to the wheel arches in an attempt to protect the delicate ally from damage caused by flying stones. The neoprene is closed cell, doesn’t retain water and hoses off clean after an outing.

Re: TV Jag

It appears the series is a concours classic car show, Mini Cooper, Hornet, Herald, MGBs, Granada, Capri and of course the S3 E. my only observation is…..they are all too clean, they look like trailer queens. Still, not a bad series.
