Well blow me down i havn't seen that stuff for years.
have they replaced it with an environmentally friendly version now.
or is it still as smelly as it used to be..

Don't let anyone in authority know where you are keeping that stuff they will want to put it deep underground and deny all knowledge of it's existance.

Can you post me a small container in a plain brown wrapper as i am running low in my jar. and the lid is a bit rusty.

Happy new year Citrojim

Regards Kermit :) :)

I just fitted a complete seat cover seat that I bought off Ebay. I had to replace the rear seats with a 70/30 split as that was the configuration for these covers. Looks good I think and Sovay seems to like them too!

Finally the rear louvre is fitted and hopefully will stay on when I head out on the autobahn! Made new fixings yesterday and installed today.

How did you fix it? With those little studs that must be fixed onto the rear window? And when is this auction - at The National?

I will be testing how well mine is fixed with a 750 km round trip to Geneva this weekend. I used the original studs but I drilled them and inserted bolts from the bottom, then rubber tap washers and loctited nuts, then adhered the studs to the window with the strongest outdoor double sided tape that is available here.

It came with a fitting kit that had stuck to the window and the louvre clipped on.

Thanks Carl. The rear louvre is more than a style thing I realise - keeps the back of the car nice and cool, perfect for the little one. Just got to fit the side window blinds from the yellow one then it will be lovely and shady in the back.
Trying to get it a bit spruced up for its debut journey to the U of K next month.

Driver, taking photographs while driving, and then splashing it on the internet?

Do I really have to say it?
this might be a signature

Lucky they didn't say they were all pissed. :lol:

Anyway, I think it was an innocent slip of the keystrokes - Todd probably meant to type 0.130 kmph. Easy mistake. :wink:
