Re: SP on Ebay & restoration topic

To repaint or not -- Thanks for the input guys. I am fortunate to have a 40 year old car that is not a pile of rust , original in my mind is body panels and paint, chrome, interior, engine and gearbox etc. As you say many service items are replaced over the years through necessity, and I suppose rep...

Re: SP on Ebay

To repaint or not is the quandary I am in at the moment. My convertible is as it left the factory but now starting to bubble a little around the wheel arches and the front valance. I have the car to drive and enjoy but at the same time of course want to keep it tidy. The local paint man I have found...

Re: Series 1 interceptor in Aberdeen

There is now one less in Scotland, I have recently moved a green Mk.111 south over the border to Cumbria to keep my convertible company. However it will no doubt spend some time back over the border on tour. Maybe in May depending on the weather.

Re: If Carlsberg made Ipod docks

Hi Dave
I have some old reels, 3", 5" or 6" if that's any use.
Most are plain but one 5" is white "Scotch" and another has "BASF" on.
Free to a good home (well maybe a beer sometime!!)

The roads are usually clear if you keep away from the Honey Pots and there always seems to be plenty of places to visit. I would suggest you set a date as soon as you can befo...

I would think the hydraulics are easy enough to check. connect power and if it pumps all should be O.K. The micro switches are a different matter, they have tested the a...
