    r.welfare got a reaction from HillmanImp in The new news 24 thread   
    I’m no great mechanic but it was ok.  The rearmost ones each side are the hardest as there’s not much clearance against the inner wings.  There’s just a lot of engine in the bay.  I changed a headlight at the same time and that was a faff.
    The engine note makes it all worthwhile

    You can do them topside using a socket set with a universal joint if you take the airbox and battery out.  You’ll still remove some of the skin off your knuckles though.

    Going out and about and will be on the motorway for the first time in months.

    In other news the surround sound amplifier has gone down on one channel... (Grump)

    Aha, so that's what it is! It had a starring role in the Jacques Tati film "Trafic":

    It looked like a weird cross between an ADO16 and a Morgan, with bits of MG TD thrown in.

    Good memory, same colour, I reckon that was a good 14 years ago!  (EDIT: it was, bought Sep ‘05, sold Apr ‘06).  It was a time of low scrap value so I paid Shadow money for it.  Quite the sleeper with the Astra GTE engine.  Got scrapped after I sold it.

    My Mum had one of these with the GTE engine, it was awful, but that's because it turned out to have been a written off ex undercover police car, all became obvious when she gave it the beans round some S bends and the rear window flew out, exposing that a new roof had been welded in..

    This is a spitter of one owned by rarely-seen-now shiter @r.welfare a few years back!!! I think his was an injection one though so probably not the same one. (Valuable information for you there, well worth posting)

    On my slightly later one (59 plate), if you flick the wiper switch down a few seconds after removing the key, the wipers park in the vertical position.  Worth a try?
