  1. That Caddy soft top looks cheap.......well in the catalogue anyway
  2. There is a meet on the 28th at Weedon..........great venue and apparently gets good mix of cars. Also on the 29th at Brackley.........I went to this last year and it was good so planning to go again as long as it is not pissing down
  3. Maybe a good idea to get the thermostat closer to the head though? Otherwise it could be a bit late getting the message to open
  4. Fuck appearing mercenary. It is yours......ok the tickets were a gift but should not come with conditions. sell it for best price and buy the van. Best price would also allow a charitable donation so all boxes ticked. Crazy to sell it low and then put actual money into the van ffs
  5. Just do it......people pay more than that for secondhand German chavwagons! (above statement does contain some irony)
  6. Ignore him.......buy it! that merc is clearly getting unreliable.
  7. Ah right. That hose is bit iffy.... Not as bad as pump to header tank one though. Still.....at least you are building up a nice shopping list after ticking off everything on the last one.
  8. Amazing result.....especially considering was stood a year. Looks great in the 'best side on' pic too That water leak....wet water or coolant type water?
  9. It actually looks respectable in that picture! so where is the write up on fitting a choke cable?
  10. Really? Seemed straightforward so please explain
  11. This. Absolutely no need for an engine change 'to keep up with modern traffic' or some other bollocks. Mind you i think the bloke that built it made the new cam and did it from a piece of bar using only a hand file.........
  12. So what do the the actual bearings and crank surface look like? These pics seem to show a con rod with no shells in......and the back of the shells that are still on the crank?
  13. Well done on getting that car..........and like you say it absolutely has to be a keeper. Enjoy every mile. well worth getting a loan for too
  14. I'd do the pre booked thing without a qualm...... But would give it a good check before departure to make sure I wasn't going to die in it
  15. You do get a few moderns...........and other types of stuff I'm not that keen on..........but easy enough to walk past and ignore
