  1. I was looking to get hold of a pair of backplates a couple of years ago, because the hexigan heads of the adjusters had worn round, I failed to find any, so I welded new hexigan heads that I cut of bolts, on to the existing adjusters, PERFECT!!
  2. I bought a pair of them from " PAST PARTS" a couple oy years ago, don't remember what they cost, but they were not expensive. PAST PARTS.01284750729. The guy I spoke to was called Nigel.
  3. The car in question is not 2nd vehicle, but you are right in saying classic cars, well mine for example, only done 51 miles in the last eleven months, but there again it has only done 80,000 from new 1977.
  4. noticed on my insurance renewal with "ADRIAN FLUX" TODAY, that in the box " NO CLAIMS BONUS" it says ZERO, now having been driving since 1951, and always been insured, and NEVER ever made a claim, that didn't look fair!! so I phoned them, as I wasn't pleased with that, and was told that as I was driving a classic car they do not add " no claims bonus" on the documentation, but on checking back they say that I do have a maximum. OK, BUT I contacted another broker, what would my chances be to have a No claims bonus when my present insurer have it in print that it is NIL? May be I'm making a mountain out of a molehill!!! Does it make sense to any of you youngsters?
  5. That car takes me back a long way!! one of the first cars I ever owned. Don't have any trouble spotting that one in a car park!!
  6. God help father Christmas with one of those on his sack!!
  7. If I was religious I would pray for you!!! But there again Ian Mac done it, as did many others.
  8. Good to hear from you Rab, Hope you are looking as good as the Manta!!. All being well I will be driving up to your part of the world next year, I'll be going to Tranent, but will come to see, not you!!! but your train layout. Cheers the now.
  9. I am wondering if you have received these parts, or not.
