  1. Colin- What can I say. What a brilliant result. It has all been worth it. Go out, find some petrol, get a bank loan if needed. Go out and drive the thing all day and ENJOY. You totally deserve it. Well done.
  2. Sadly only the plastic cover. Does not include the springy thingies inside or any other metal bits. I must get around to photographing and posting my el cheapo rock bottom bargain basement version.
  3. Would the camping mat foam which is a closed cell waterproof type product work?
  4. If the night dimmer is like the Spitfire version, simply disconnect the power energising lead. Not sure which one it is but someone will be along soon to tell. Then you can leave everything as is.
  5. I've said it before, so here we go again... One man's junk is another man's rare part...why is my garage full of everyone else's rare parts?
  6. Don't forget to put the nut on (the correct way around) before you make the flare. A bit like wiring up a rubber plug and then remembering you should have fitted the cover onto the cable (the right way around) before tightening the connections and cable grip.
  7. How many of us have got bits of other people's cars salted away in our garage/workshops?
  8. Sooo.... 'Just in time' stock control is not something that the shop subscribes to then. More a case of.... do we list it? Do we have it? Can we find it? What the **** is it? How much is it? Where's Angie? Can we put in through the computer? Sod it - it's been paid for just send it out!! If we find so something we don't recognise, ask Mathew to put it on his forum thread...someone will identify it!!
  9. Just what has gone wrong or is it just a question of inertia? I would have though that any out of stock situation for any length of time would have been flagged for deletion if stock was no longer available or wanted.

    Danny - Sorry but I need to clarify, are you saying that Parkside (Lidl) batteries are interchangeable with Ferrex (Aldi) tools or just interchangeable with other Parkside 20v tools? If they are interchangeable with the Aldi range, guess where I'm off to tomorrow!!
  11. Only one place to go...Park Lane Classics

    Spitfire Lay Up

    +1 for the clutch pedal. Cut a length of timber and wedge between the pedal and the raised floor in front of the drivers seat. Mine (Spitfire), was solid after layup and nothing I could do would free it off.
  13. My Apollo is safely in the garage. Not for sale at the moment. I had no idea that they were highly sought after. Yes, it is the original blue model featured in and recommended by, Practical Classics all those years ago, and... I think it's the same model that Colin L mentions somewhere on my long forgotten restoration thread (thinks.... Must really get on with something productive).
  14. Is there a queue, do we just turn up... with a tanker?
  15. Mathew - Yes, I have had the same problem with leaks. I think what happens is that the collection tray under the coolant coils gets blocked and then overflows. I now stand them in plastic trays just in case.

    As far as I'm aware they are not interchangeable. If someone has both and they are please post here and then I'm off to Aldi!!!

    So satisfying

    A friend of mine once owned up to his parents being called Maurice and Doris. They had a sense of humour, their kids were called Michael, Nicola and Richard. Otherwise known as (you guessed it)....Mick, Nick and Dick.

    Ok if you don't already have loads of battery tools. Thankfully all mine now take either a 12v or 20v battery so I only need two batteries (in theory, in fact I have several of each type) for loads of stuff
  19. Perhaps a direct email. I'm sure that his address is in the Courier.
  20. Dave, what about one of those ice sprays that plumbers use to freeze water in pipes before they crack open joints, or would that be too fierce?
  21. Oh no, what have I started this time? The mini wolf likes cats...she thinks they're great fun (apologies to cat lovers, everywhere)
  22. Me...how!!!!??? Come on.....what did you expect. I'll shut the door on my way out!
