We should try to avoid starting the Mark Wars again: just accept that whatever mark you own is the best.... until you get a Mk 1.That`s NO way to talk about the MK that started all this !!!!!!!!!!
I know exactly how you feel, Stevo, but I go with the local MG Car Club... are there any other sports car clubs in your area?Nearly sold my car after meeting my local miserable region :-(
Maybe I should move house
That is beautiful; great work! I am a great fan of Mazda's engineering so 'bog standard' is my preferred style.:nod:Bored waiting for the weather to change so decided to clean the engine bay on my bog standard Arctic.
Ben, what have you got yourself into?:wub:Yellow Ben!!!! Yellow Wanna do mine?
Fantastic age, 59; except for the aches and pains, general slowing down, hair falling out, inability to pass a toilet and sudden desire for afternoon naps!Good age 59 BigKev
Just like my father! He always insisted on the correct tool for the job. In his garage he had BSF, Whitworth, metric (old [for his MG TC's XPAG crankcase] and new), BA, SAE and all sorts of unique spanners for plugs and things. I have hung on to many of the most unusual ones out of sentiment. There is something about old tools!Adjustable spanners - the devil's tools. Confiscated by our Safety Officer at Fords when I worked there!
Ben, having had a very thorough and expensive respray on my car, I would urge you to keep the original paint and just attend to maintaining what you have. It looks great. I know the problems of the bumpers. I used an Autoglym two polish programme to keep them almost shiny. The respray fixed the bumpers and chips but also seems to have reduced my car's personality.Stayed behind at work to machine polish my MX-5 again. I concentrated on the top of wings and front bumper. Although the front bumper has improved a little, I feel the only solution is a re-spray.
