Wheely good builder!

Wheely good builder! (4/6)



  1. Hi Richard, would you please add Rosemary, Rebecca, Pat, Geoff and Steve please. Thank you so much. Kindest regards Steve.
  2. MORRIS 1000 that I managed to get on two wheels whilst out learning with my Dad who was not impressed Then Fiat 600D with Abarth exhaust. Then 105E Ford Then Fiat STRADA built by ROBOTS Then 1974 Ford Escort Mexico in Sebring Orange that I went to see built at AVO Plant in South Ockendon. Still on road as I am in contact with the guy that I sold it to, believe it has won various titles and it has been on the TV in the Ford ESCORT TV programme some years ago. Miss it but was not using it at all !!

    NICE IDEA if you can buy Creosote when I tried x years ago the general public are not allowed to buy CREOSOTE you can only buy CREOCOTE or whatever it is called ! Apparently CREOSOTE is not allowed to be used by JOE PUBLIC as it is banned, I believe I saw a report that if someone SMELLS or SEES you using CREOSOTE they can report it to the Council or the Police !
  4. Hi Rich, please add Pat, Geoff, Rebecca and myself, Rosemary will be in Sketty Poppy sitting. Thank you so much. Cheers Steve.

  6. Just a heads up for anyone who might be interested buy online from Sunday 07/02/2021 or instore from Sunday 14/02/2021 I have used Aldi Battery Chargers for quite a few years and they always seem quite good value, as are the ones from Lidl when they are on offer. Depends on who wants to maintain their Battery but NOT SUITABLE FOR LITHIUM IRON BATTERIES ! Auto XS Car Battery Charger Product Ref: 804759437763000 Cheers, Steve.
  7. MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY SAFE HEALTHY NEW YEAR 2021 TO ALL PLEASE Lets just all PRAY 2021 is an improvement on 2020
  8. Hi my car was built by GBS and is a 2b Superspec my dials are like this ! Hope it helps and they are all visible when you are driving there are two screws that hold the dials panel in place.
  9. I have one's from Aldi and Lidl which seem to work well just make sure when you purchase it states on the box for continuous Charging or Maintaining they are not normally that expensive I also have one called a Multimate I think will look later and update, that one has been on for nearly 15 years. Just check when you buy it is for continued charging and monitoring.
  10. Hopefully this may be of interest for the future, I met a gentleman today Jason Jones who has a business Bending Tubes, he says they are able to produce Roll Bars and Full Cages for Cars. Their business is at the moment Tubular Staircases I think looking at their website www.bendtech.co.uk they have been trading for about 10 years now and have a bit of experience behind them. Most of their business is word of mouth and recommendation, not much via the internet Contact details as follows :- BENDTECH Unit 9b Beecham Business Park, Aldridge, Walsall, WS9 8TZ Telephone :- 07908982937 Fax :- 01213450960 I think Jason would be happy to answer any question regarding any project that anyone might be considering, or quoting for any specialist project that might be being considered by any of our members. Thanks for reading and who knows something might prove of use ? Cheers, Steve.
  11. Sounds fascinating would love to be included in the ADVENTURE please. Would need to use the "TINTOP" as Rosemary and Rebecca would also like to see this " SECRET FACTORY " . Reminds me of a year or two ago back in the 1970's when a book came out from memory it was mentioned on the News I think called " Beneath the City Streets " by Peter Laurie ! There was a lot of protesting that it had been published. I took it out from our local library but had to order it in and provide details of why I wanted it ! It was very very interesting detailing why the Roads up to Buckingham Palace were so wide ! So that a plane/light aircraft could land easily to remove important people from Buck House ? Very INTERESTED please keep us posted if you don't mind Andi ?
  12. Thanks Steve. I will try them also.

  13. Give A Plan a call or message them they are always very helpful or have been for me Good LUCK, Steve
  14. Cheers Bob I did think of this but the Car is Metallic Blue, will look further but thank you so much for your suggestion
  15. Not really for the Kit but does anyone have any experience of using or purchasing any "SCRATCH/CHIP Repair" products ? I have bought one from Shine Armor but not sure why I bothered as it does not appear to work Any ideas or suggestions appreciated as long as it's not Spray Can or Aerosol paint ! Thank you, Steve
