Some help please for someone new.
I have tried to edit my profile so that people do not see my real name against my posts but an alias instead... like most people on here.
Can anyone tell me how I may do that please?
Thank you. Regards to all.
wow...if I can come up with something remotely like that I will be well pleased with myself. Nice engine bay too, mine looks, .... not like that!
By the way ,someone has stolen your steering column
I wondered the same thing when rebuilding the Spitfire brakes, but was never able to find a definitive source one way or the other. (all my backplates are well used incl my spares, all have the wear/dimples under discussion)
Should have mentioned before that the big Soot Monster passed it's MoT without comment - except that the tester (who I've known a while) did observe that the emissions (soot!) were astonishingly low considering it's age and mileage and would put many a younger machine to shame. 'Tis the constant thrashing keeps it's tubes clear maybe
Meanwhile the little soot monster is in the nearly camp. It nearly needs three tyres, nearly needs front brakes (pads/discs) and nearly needs a couple of wishbones. Might try doing the brakes and hoping some new shiny bits swing the balance...... nice to be able stop after all and, having used it to go work today (it's not fond of hills), I did notice that the brakes could be better though tbh I'm not sure they are actually any worse than usual!
Hi Nick. Yes sore point and Raw....I haven't been able to touch the car yet,I got it back in December !!! but it has now had two professional assessments and I am hoping to move forward soon...
By moving forward, the prognosis is to totally dismantle all that has been done and to start from ground up again...hugely disappointing and having already paid for that to be done, I now have to pay again.....it's not going to beat me though, I can assure you of that.
