Cheers Rory.
Looking back above, I don’t know what astounded me more was the fact that there exists a baked bean jigsaw puzzle or the fact that Don had the time and the patience to actually complete it.

Re: Dead in Battle

You don’t see many of these mobiles on the roads any more, I suppose most people go to organised AA meetings nowadays instead of having a bunch of strangers listen to their drunken antics and vague confessions being described in lurid detail over a cuppa and a pork pie at some lay-by or other on the...

Re: Door mirror backing

The chrome part is affixed with two plastic pins on the outboard side and a hidden clip on the inboard side.

Re: The Dreaded Droop

I would just get those upholstery screw pins and pin it up temporarily - that's what I'm going to do if (when) mine collapses. I've seen it done and it looks very neat ...not stock/concourse of course, but at my mileage and being a daily, not a garage queen, who cares? As long as it ain't sitting o...

Re: XJ40 Matchbox Model Police Conversion

Things like this remind me of way back when I was repairing thermionic valve TVs part time in order to eat as a student. When taking a little ol...
