  1. I was momentarily excited because I though Etchy was bumping this thread as he had managed to secure a runway full of scrappage scheme rammel that he had dropped beige paint on from one of those firefighting tanker planes and was flogging them off at bargain prices. It was only a dream after all.
  2. Oh bugger! Laminated glass will not bend or flex because it is two thin layers of glass with a sheet of clear plastic between them, whereas toughened can be persuaded quite a lot. If you can't get a toughened screen then ditch the weatherstrip and bond a laminated screen in.
  3. Brand new cam followers were fitted to my DS engine when it was rebuilt. Within two weeks the tappets were chattering like Granma's false teeth. So it was back to the old ones which have been fine ever since. I presume that they neglected to case harden the new ones as proper engineering is a lost art.
  4. Would you be able to produce a scale model replicating that pic using matchbox cars? I had the Victor estate and the Morris Oxford/Austin Cambridge as a kid but what about the rest?
  5. My first car was a 2 door A30. I put a stage 2 tuned head on it and used it for club 12 car rallys. I used to have bruises on my spine from the metal reinforcing in the driver's seat where I had to press so hard on the brake pedal because of competition linings. PXH898 I think it was. As you were!
  6. That was going to be my next question. Did you get any other pics at all?
  7. There can't be too many of those in RHD. I wonder if it is this one that I papped back in the 1970s 1936 Mercedes 540K Cabriolet by Jean-Pierre Declemy, on Flickr
  8. You have to wait till 2018 for that pic
  9. Car and house both decapotable
  10. Although I do look at Ebay Tat every time I view the forum I seem to have missed that.
  11. I thought it was only horses that were "put out to grass"
  12. By Mic from Reading - Berkshire, United Kingdom - Paris, France, CC BY 2.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=54294227 This showed up in my YouTube suggestions
  13. Excellent job with the sunroof. Some of my customers put the silicone mastic on the inside for reasons I fail to comprehend. Some sort of perverse logic about that's where the rain comes in I suppose.
  14. Great for a mini crazy-golf course for when stuck in traffic
  15. If it had been me I would have gone to extreme lengths to obtain concentric washers the right size only to find when reassembling that there was a jolly good reason why that washer was like that and I would have to use it anyway. But then I am used to working on Citroens.
