Re: A fellow Tourer fan!

Shame you didn't have chance for a proper chat, great minds think alike on the tourer it was a fantastic motor and so practical, I remember getting a 6' wardrobe in one once, how many of today's Euro-boxes can claim to do that? Keep it going Deev.....

Hibernation over?

Does anyone think that the hibernation time of the year is finally nearing an end, as far as getting the Rover out on the roads and events? Anyone looking at getting un-SORN'ed 1st Mar/Apr?
What a wet season, can only mean a good chance the opposite must surely present soon.

Re: rover tourer with a difference- horrendous

Actually reminds me of the several PT Cruisers I used to own in the 2000's - I remember seeing a 'wooden PT Cruiser' just like the one attached. http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=wooden+pt+cruiser&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=r8PuUv2hJsOrhQe9lIG4AQ&ved=0CCoQsAQ&biw=1280&bih=586#facrc=_&imgrc=jK...

Re: water under seat

Had the rear light seals letting water in on a few in past, remember when removed to check and see if water is contained in the plastic frame of the lamp unit as it does collect.

Re: weston park

My crystal ball is struggling Steve, where / when is the Weston Park show.... As you're in Walsall, is it a South West listing or local to you in Walsall? I don't think you're on about the Wston-super-Mare gathering in April as its a free turn up event, so.... Help :S

Re: do things in pairs

Must admit I'm a symmetry man, if a footwell is dirty I'd always whip over the passenger one even if no-one had sat in it for weeks. Same with wiper blades, it would niggle me if one was new and the other slightly not new or old, an imbalance which wouldn't sit well. Must be a psycho-analysis view o...

Re: Back to the Highwayman

Re: Tyntesfield House, nr Nailsea, Somerset - 14/15 June 201

What is Tyntesfield House grounds like Paul, have you been? I know the top part of Somerset well but only as I used to use the sticks often to escape the traffic jams often. Good to see you may come along to some of the ideas anyway, there are loads on this year and as you say is a pity so many clash.
