Re: LHD Dashboard Remake for Interceptor MK1,MK2 and MK3

As an aside, about a year ago Jason Lawrence of REJEN fame showed me a retrimmed MK1 FF dash they'd retrimmed - with matching binnacles etc. Looked fantastic to my eyes.

Re: Labour Hours need for a N&B restoration of an Interceptor?

I was once told by a respected specialist who has restored a number of Jensen Interceptors that a properly restored Interceptor (and many aren't) can eat up 2000 hours. I think it would be fair to say this figure is more relevant to the later, more complicated examples - and assumes the car is compl...

Goodwood Revival 2021

Just booked.

If the on site camping plots are anything to go by, the event is selling out fast.

Re: Can we bring back the Joke thread?

I seem to recall someone/some people took offence at the content resulting in moderator/JOC official comment. It appeared to precipitate a decline in posts, general fun and merriment. Perhaps moving it to members only section (if it's not already) and including a content warning at the top of the th...

Another blast from my past...

Acronym finder.

Some good ones if you search. The web site has clearly become more professional/PC since I visited it last. Glad to see BOBFOC is still there.

What's your favourite?

Re: Forum traffic decline - or my bad maths

Zac, You mention stats package but only quote visitors to the forum. Personally, I wouldn't look to the number of forum visitors as the best (or only) key indicator - especially when (I assume) many visits are generated as a result of simply clicking on a picture/subject on social media. Nonetheless...

Re: I've been feeling depressed recently and feel I should share this.

Glad you guys like it too. Hey Sespie, for your sake don't give your staff ideas.....unless of course you're playing 'you know that they know that you know' mind games with them. Ah, the joys of managing staff... Defrosting the washing machine John? That's heroic. I baulk at loading and unloading ou...

Re: I've been feeling depressed recently and feel I should share this.

Glad you liked it Shaun. There's quite a few typos in the 2009 addition (due to laziness?). Oh, and I think someone else is now using the web address mentioned in the document. When I looked at it many years ago it had a message along the lines of: sorry this website isn't being updated, we've all r...

I've been feeling depressed recently and feel I should share this.

During lockdown I tried to find a most valuable publication, without success. Tried to reconcile myself I'd inadvertently thrown it out with the weeks' old newspapers for the greater good of the planet. But no, praise the Lord, I found my hard copy (October 2008 Edition) amongst some other stored, t...
