  1. I am so upset by this news. Richard was very active and came to so many meets, and he was always great fun to hang out with. I just can't come to terms with the fact that we won't be seeing him at future gatherings. RIP, friend.
  2. It says something about Cleon-Fonte's other uneventful collection trips that he doesn't mention this push was into the coned off route of a city wide cycle race, and right into the middle of a lively community discussion where some locals were debating whether an unconscious man slumped against a wall might be a paedophile or not. We retreated to Europe's bleakest sandwich shop, where they made us sandwiches in the dark. The Clio is a delight, though - what a find! They're so rare now, finding a good one with such a great spec is fantastic.
  3. Aw, man, that thing. What an infuriating car! Every component of the fuel system appeared to work on its own, but together? Not a splutter. We even pestered a Bosch Classic employee at Essen who couldn't point us in the right direction either. Eventually we decided we'd spent enough time being marinaded in petrol and flogged it on eBay, half expecting to see it at the next Stan Woods. A few months later, however, it popped up on the DVLA site as taxed and MOT'd! So I was straight on eBay to ask the buyer to ask how they fixed it, praying he wouldn't say something like "oh yeah, there was no rotor arm in it" . But his response vindicated us - I can't find the message now, but the gist of it was renewal of almost the entire fuel injection system. In short, yes, he should have stuck a carb on it.
  4. Salutations. This month's meeting of the North's finest will take place on Tuesday 3rd March. Usual place and time, everyone welcome.
  5. They have a festive menu? We've only been there every month for three years, not really enough time to learn the menu.
  6. Hello Friends Just a reminder that the next gathering will be on Tuesday 3rd December. @Dave_Q , if you read this could you update the thread title please?
  7. yo whatup Should any of you fancy this car, and you should, because it's a good one, then you'll be thrilled to know that it's available for anyone able to summon up an offer "as close to four digits as possible". The MOT is good 'til April 2020 and it's ready and waiting to be driven away in south Manchester. Super easy to get to by road, rail, air or canal. If you haven't been paying attention it's a two litre petrol auto saloon. If you want more info PM me.

  9. No, I agree. I will see if it's possible to revert to the bolded unread titles and failing that certainly I can make the unread content star a lot more prominent.
  10. There's a brown circle next to the topic title, clicking this should take you to the last unread post.
  11. Try top left, there's an "Activity" tab next to "Browse" (underneath the SD1).
  12. Yes, this is a problem. For some reason the reply box is using the headline font and it shouldn't be. I will figure it out. I was asked to remove the country field because the flags were an add-on which didn't work with the new board software. All I could do was try to hide the broken "Country :" display with CSS, which IIIRC was working on the test board but doesn't seem to be working here. Yes, this is a stupid oversight, sorry. The icons are just the wrong colour, or no colour or something. Will fix. I will tweak the colours a bit and replace the font in the editor so it matches the font in posts. Name wrap looks shit, I agree. I will make the usernames a bit smaller. It's on my list!
  13. I'm really happy that we finally got Skizzer's artwork as the forum logo proper. It looks great up there, doesn't it?
  14. I know it's not perfect, but remember that everyone hated the old forum theme when it was new too. Some of it is just a matter of acclimatising, but this one will be improved as we use it. Since the forum software isn't free I had very limited access to test the theme, and there's no theming community so there was a lot of guesswork and experimentation. I'm already jotting down egregious issues, like the brown pinned icon and the illegible "quote selection" button and PM message counts.
  15. I picked up a bunch of quite nice repaint candidates from a 20p box. Two tone mint! Excuse the horrible lighting.
  16. Bump! Can we re-create the excellent attendance we had here a few years ago? This is exactly what it is.
  17. This very nice Ertl Pontiac Bonneville had an appointment with the airbrush today. Few more challenges in this one - there was a massive hole in the roof to fill (ex police?), followed by a world of painful masking for the roof then even more masking to paint that bright strip.
  18. This thing got repainted. I had to paint the interior because so much of the interior is visible through the massive glazed area. The Vita-Min has also been repainted, I didn't try to match the original colour, but it had to stay purple!
  19. Yeah, the sidelight is a separate little thing which piggybacks on the connector.
