Re: Brand new sills

I had same issues with sending the coupe sills. People thought I was talking rubbish and being awkward, I ended up saying collection only in the end.

Re: Very sad news.............

I remember a conversation with Ron at Best of British some time ago. He said the older manuals were good as they were based on a proper strip down and rebuild, whereas the newer versions were extracts from online materials and not as useful or accurate.

Re: New Astra

Re: BMC/BL 2018

As far as I am concerned it works, I pay £16 a year and that saves me £40-50 on my insurance, so I am happy. Don't use for the club for anything else thou, which is my choice, but it's a shame for those that want to go to shows as they only seem interested in the NEC show. Had a message recently to ...

Re: BMC/BL 2018

Checking on the website the last show the club supported was Gaydon in 2017? The website seems to have gone backwards, seems a shame, makes you wonder what's going on with the club.
