Re: 2019 Restoration Show Centrepiece Charity Cabriolet

John is just being modest. This was very much a team effort and everyone contributed equally. Pleased to get it done in a day and with the successful outcome. As a club, we should do this sort of thing more often - it's a great way to get to know people and is a great incentive to get things done. O...

Re: What to do with my 45

Pity we didn't know about this earlier - it sounds like it would have been another good candidate for the Resto Show. Most of the jobs that need doing are fairly easily doable by a DIY mechanic. Depending upon what the brake set up is (ABS?) and what the failure point was, only that and the welding ...

Re: Club Social Media Presence

Thanks for the comprehensive reply Paul - much appreciated and has cleared a lot of things up. This is where I show my ignorance. In which case you have nothing to fear - the only person that can post on the Club Twitter or Instagram page is me. It is not possible for other people to post content. S...

Re: Club Social Media Presence

Hi JohnDQ, no, I don't consider it as rude. This is a dialectic and we should all be able to exchange opinions without feeling offended, or offending. You're right, I am out of touch and I like things kept simple and structured, which is what the forum provides. It is a succinct central point of com...

Re: Club Social Media Presence

The club's reputation can be tarnished if people start posting inappropriate content on any of the sites. We can't control what people say, or how they say it, so it needs to be continuously monitored. Just look at the verbal diarrhoea frequently found all over social media and the personal spats be...

Re: Club Social Media Presence

this will only help the profile of the club being raised. It may help with the profile of the club being raised but it also dilutes the matters of the club across 4, or more, platforms – depending upon just how many Facebook groups are included – and, who knows, more platforms in the future. This m...

Re: 2019 Restoration Show Centrepiece Charity Cabriolet

Are compliance bushes something different to trailing arm bushes? I can't see anything listed on Rimmer's under Compliance Bush, except for the MGF and TF. Is it not driveable at present because of the clutch? If it can be driven there, we shouldn't have any problem doing a clutch change. Is it actu...

Re: 2019 Restoration Show Centrepiece Charity Cabriolet

Are we looking to complete all these jobs over the weekend? If we failed to complete any of the jobs, having started them, is that a problem? I was looking at buying one of those trailing arm bush removal/installation tools because I have 2 sets to do myself - if it would be useful for this job too,...

Re: What are your Plans and Projects for 2019 ??

Just fitted a replacement oe tape/radio unit and new front speakers (Christmas present) to my 216 GSi. Nice to have my music back. It has, however, demonstrated that I also need to replace the rear speakers too. I also now have a full set of 4, pretty much brand new looking, wheel trims to put on fo...
