Re: E type 2+2

Yes I have an S1 2+2 and they have the steep angle windshield…making it a bit „the ugly ducking“ of the range…

Re: Ill- fitting doors / where to get better door seals ?

Morning, Whow, the last post I think describes exactly my problem. I will try to find the time to check all the rubber I fitted and get cross- section pictures. At the moment, I have to re- assemble my 11.8 ton Unimog beast so that I can drive it out of the main shed. Then I‘ll have to clean it up a...

Re: 40 Years of SNG Barratt Video

I also bought from SNG and it always was a pleasure. When you think about a german branch, contact me :-) Regarding the Citroen SM, well, I had 17 of these beasts and am keeping one for 23 yrs now. You have to join the club, best to join the French club, together with Cyril Sars in the Netherlands i...

Ill- fitting doors / where to get better door seals ?

Subject says it. I used a complete rubber kit iirc from SNG or ebay, bought it maybe 8 years ago ? and the doors never shut properly. I heard there are thinner rubbers ? which may solve this issue ? My doors have a „rail“ on top - what goes there, some kind of rubber lip strip ? I could not fit anyt...

Re: Status Quo

Hey Simon, I bought it back in 2008, and thought I‘d do it in 3-4 years. Its now been 14 years, and it‘ll be 15 in the end… Those pesky Citroens I did before never took longer then maybe 3 years, because when you bought them for the same amount of dough, you did get an actual car and not a pile‘o‘ru...

Re: Status Quo

It came out rather well… just look at it, Pete… I still remember the morning I stopped at your place, to buy the chassis / tub, you opened the door, it was maybe 8 am ? and a bird dropped a huge spot on my Merc, and you looked at it happening and said „welcome to England“… https://up.picr.de/4421922...

Re: Status Quo

Hi Pete, Yes, in too many small places. Plus we had the problem that it was absolutely impossible to match the paint, even with modern scanners and computers. It never was perfectly right, closest was a mitsubishi paint from the 80s, but just. Plus there was the useless antenna hole in the front plu...

Re: Looking for a place to leave a Merc for 3 days

Morning guys, Yesterday evening he said he‘d put the car on one of the places I searched for him, pay it via an app ?, go into London and stay there for 5 days. I also asked the Imp community, they had some ideas like paid public parking places- I think this is where he got the idea from - hope it a...

Looking for a place to leave a Merc for 3 days

Hey guys, My son, 19, is approaching London, coming from Bristol. He wants to stay a few days in London, but our Merc is too old to get into the congestion zone. I tried years ago and it was hell‘ o‘ expensive. So, the plan is to find a place for them to stay for maybe two days, then leave the car t...
