  1. Just need seat foams for a MK1 (Impossible???) and a soft top and we can ride in the rain. anyone have one for sale for a 64 Spit please?
  2. I have great difficulty getting into sideways, when I try and log in it always says wrong password or name, despite telling sideways many many times nought is done?????????????? apparently Pantera prices are tanking, ie dropping, not being a speculator I think its a very good thing, I bought my {Pantera on the proceeds of selling my black TR4) but have spent much time and dosh getting it "better". I should never have sold that 4, it was the BEST restoration I had ever done the only time I found it difficult to drive was on a return trip from the NEC, dark on the M6, LHD doesen
  3. Just seen this on BBC science, makes you think about the speed of UFO's that people have witnessed, we are beginning to emulate the ones who may be light years ahead of us. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-47585433
  4. A bit more progress, all chrome work now back from Walsall (no more on that one) car at the paint shop for final prep and getting the unseen bits painted. should be done by the end of the week. the doors screen and boot will be done as and when the painters have time "to fit them in" between other work.
  5. Tim please excuse this late reply but have had lots of problems getting into the Sideways forum, my password they say is wrong, so I change it and I'm in. but the next time I try and sign in I get a message saying wrong Password, I have just bought one from the net but having to get it repaired. sending you a PM.

  7. I didnt hand over a deposit. I did send them an E mail complaining about their charges. I had a phone call from the firm from a bloke who told me that they only do correct work, using copper nickel and then chrome, he explained that their materials had increased in price dramatically Nevertheless, they said they would in this case reduce the cost by £530. Quite a difference. I do have the problem that I still think a pound is worth 20 shillings, must try harder.
  8. I sent the bumpers and overriders door handles and headlamp rims for re chroming.

Decided to have the car repainted and am just in the process of preparing for painting. The bulkhead was very solid but years of brake fluid and wear and tear had taken its toll, so began there one coat on after wearing out about 10 rotary wire brushes, Interestingly the seats where in need of reconditio
