  1. Hi Ian. Those rain channels, as you call them are what Vauxhall called FLUTES, I don't know when Vauxhall introduced them to their bonnets, but I bought a 1936 Vauxhall 25HP in 1954, and they were on that car, I have a photo of it, but in those days they were chromed, Just a bit of useless info!!!!. Keep up the good work.
  2. Yes the cav does have a rev counter. As for throwing stuff away, we have all done that!!!! I hope you are sorted by now.
  3. This happened on my Cavvy, and it was the voltage stabiliser, I had a bit of a job finding one.
  4. I'll have to have your address if you want it Andy. The part number by the way is. OPEL "8930033" also number 17 underneath that number. I've no idea of the history of these bits, I had a box full of stuff about ten years ago from a MANTA enthusiast who was a blacksmith in Neath. The measurment that you wanted on this item is 20.008.
  5. I have got another pair that are exactly the same size only they are slightly worn, not to bad really, if you PM me your address I will send it to you.
  6. I have an timing case that has a pair of these in, and they look to be in very good, not well worn condition, if they are of any use to any member, will only cost the postage.
  7. I've picked the one that I want. It's "O AAZ 823" I can picture myself driving that int the car park in Carmarthen!!!! What a head turner that would be!!
  8. Very nice Herman, no two cars look alike, not like today's cars, they all look the same, to be honest I don't know one from the other. I remember years ago, I won't say how many years!!! you could tell what car was coming towards you when it was a couple of miles away, the Wolsey for example had it's badge on the front of the rad, that lit up in the dark, that alone told you what car it was without seeing the body of the car..

  10. Is that a realistic price or am I a bit behind the times? If it is I can look at my car and add a couple of grand to that price, CHUFFED TO BITS!!!

    New swan neck

    How often do you buy tables Herman, are you having it delivered?!!!!!! Congratulations mate.
  12. For God's Ian. Down like that.You have done a good job there, you took on what I would never attempted, and there are many more in this club who will agree with me, the percentages of experts in any profession is very low. So you can give yourself a bloody good slap on the back and say " Didn't I do well!!"
  13. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/273787149995?ul_noapp=true What is it really worth?
  14. I've got a full set of those rubber trims, don't know if there are any clips with them, I'll have a look later on, if there is any you might need Paul, let me know, will only cost you postage.
