    Windscreen Marking

    took a land rover defender windscreen to local glass shop and they cut to shape leaving all the markings cost £20 plus £35 for the screen.
  2. yeah saw that one might end up with a spare engine might be a bit heavy for the hood though.
  3. got the Robin hood to finish, got a s1 Dutton phaeton to rebuild, got a 1968 Commer TS3 to renovate, might have another 5 Commer lorries to dismantle for parts, so going to be a tad busy!! ohh and mustn't forget the Wife's list ! Looking for a large tent to put the Commer in if anyone knows of anything.
  4. when removing vinyl signage from vans we found the best thing was petrol and cheaper than most of the stuff you can buy that doesn't work anyway HTH.
  5. best hurry up and get mine finished then

    Moutney Steering Wheel

    I thought the collapsable part was in the column itself ?? sierra wheel doesn't collapse?
  7. yes they can they just connect a laptop to the diagnostic socket and bypass all the security, you can now buy a security box to fit around it to stop them. like this: http://www.garrisonlocks.co.uk/ford-transit-2014-onwards-obd-port-socket-protection?utm_source=google_shopping&gclid=CKOoirqqg9QCFQ06GwodIWcEVg
  8. thank you for your reply when I have uploaded photos I've simply reduced there size with windows paint (if I can do it anyone can!!) I do not use photo hosting sites because you may give away your copyright and allow your photos to be used without your knowledge by anyone for anything! surely though if sites like retro ford/pistonheads (who dont have a membership fee) etc can do it then surely one of the biggest kitcar forums should. maybe it's time to use advertising to cover the cost?, I believe that's how the aforementioned do it and it's not intrusive. also if you stopped people having gif's etc on their profile or whatever it's called the data they use could be used for photos I know which is more useful! keep up the good work.

    Nice Car

    get your coat too
  10. it's pant's that we can't upload photos directly most other sites you can!!! although you can if you reduce their size!!
  11. I think I'm right in saying that although side repeaters are necessary they dont have to be on the cycle wings? I'm sure someone here will have the necessary knowledge you'll just have to wait until they return from church
  12. find a hill and coast down with foot off the throttle then accelerate if you get loads of smoke then valve stem seals or oil control rings. my old mini used to completely engulf the road before I rebuilt the engine,and it needed new valve stems as well as seals.

    Nice Car

  14. due to shield gas getting expensive I've gone back to stick if you learn to stick weld you'll find everything else much easier.
