    Why would they need an indicator hole close to North Wales? Would it be to tell English drivers to turn left or right!?
  2. Also a socket to plug the kettle in!!! and more important I don't see a fridge to keep the beer in! Come on Andy get you'r priorities right!
  3. I think it is time for you to own up that you built all the Mantas and Cavaliers back in the day!!! this is what I call Professionalism at it's Best. and I really mean that mate.
  4. Couldn't you have just recovered the existing seat Ian, or would that just be the cowards way out?!!
  5. What do you do in your spare time Ian?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  6. You asked " what side is it for?" that's what made me think they are handed, but after checking the one that I have just posted to you,it looks to me to symmetrical, let me know.
  7. I didn't know they are handed mate!! so I will have a look in the morning. and let you know. but will also put it in the post, as you will very like to have it.
  8. I have one Ian mint condition, you are welcome to it, free, as you did me a favour, do you still require it?
  9. Why don't you admit it Ian, You designed these door cards and made them for Vauxhall & Opel back in the day, not tying to make out and pull the wool over our eyes that you are a novice!!!!. Brilliant Mate. By the way I've posted your Auto box tool today. Keep up the good work.
  10. That looks good Andy, they still appear now and then. I hope you gave those kids a good kicking!!!! What a way to treat Religion!! Don't parents teach kids anything these days?
  11. 'Afternoon Mate, I will be posting your " Special Auto Box tool back either Monday or Tuesday, Many, Many thanks. I'm interested now with the material for the top of the door card, I only need enough for the one side, but having said that maybe I should do both, as the new won't match with the other door, I agree that the match with the dash is the correct one, so can you let me know the supplier etc and how much will I require? Please.

           Best wishes

      Hiya matey,

      How are you? - well I hope!

      Thanks in advance for posting the 'special' tool back, at your convenience - absolutely no rush at all.

      This is what I bought for the door tops: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Heavy-Duty-Faux-Leather-Leatherette-Vinyl-PVC-Fire-Resistant-Material-Upholstery/112581648729?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=412989780168&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2648

      You will need about 140-150 mm length per side (from the standard width roll offered) - so basically you will need 300 mm to do both doors. So if you buy their shortest length of 0.5 Meters, you will have loads left over and it will only cost you £7.99

      I hope that helps you Julian?

      Cheers for now mate, stay well - speak soon.

      Best Regards,


  12. I done the same job last week, quite straight forward really, the only difficult part is getting underneath the car lying on my back!! I remember the days when I could do that even with a woodbine stuck in my mouth!! I hope no one is going to ask " What is a woodbine?!!
  13. The red material on the very top of the door card Ian, what material is it? my car interior is in mint condition except for a what I think is a cigarette burn in that card top on the drivers door, I' ve been meaning to see to it for years now, but think it's time to get it done!!! but to get the correct colour and the correct material won't be easy, what do you suggest?.
  14. Looks like my memory of fifty odd years ago isn't so good!!!! it must have been 33 inch pounds then not foot pounds on the Transit vans. Have a good day mate.
