Thanks for the link, a pair of those posted to the UK is 47.00 which is a little steep for 2 x plastic cups!

I've ordered those clips from ebay (@ 5 all in) and I'll let you know how I get on...

Mail them and tell them that must be a mistake, a letter up to 20 g NL --> UK should only cost 1,33 euro. They probably quoted the price for a registered parcel.

Melle could bring you some from NL when he's there. :-)

I have seen it before, it's been around for awhile and I think it might have been for sale last year too.

It's been painted the same colour I want to paint mine too, but hopefully mine will look sufficiently different so they don't get confused with each other;)

Agree with Melle, I think he was going for the Bruce Turke Two Stroke colour look but it,s too shiny!

Although I do love the colour, duck egg shell that is in at the moment for front doors, garden fencing etc but it has always looked great on classic style boat hulls

I am fascinated by these, how do you get them through IVA, or is it because they were done before the current regime?

Had some 'fun' with the pickup today - haven't moved the car for awhile and now I want to shift it, it wouldn't budge!

The rear offside brake shoe had rusted itself to the drum and didn't want to let go. But with the help of a blowtorch and a lump hammer it started to move again.

Now I can get on with what I wanted to do in the first place.

Blowtorch...brakes..two words that shouldn't be mixed unless the car has been in a bog for 10years.
That's going to need sorting. Where was the blow torch applied?

Just to the outside, outer rim of the brake drum.

The blowtorch was almost out of gas, so it wasn't exactly blasting out a lot of heat, just enough to expand the drum. Once the drum made a nice bell-ringing sound, it was cool enough to spin the drum by hand, so I don't think it got excessively hot.

I had also wound out the brake adjuster, so once the drum was spinning again I re-adjusted it.

I will have a proper look inside though.

A gentle thump with a hammer is how we trailer sailer boys do it if the brakes stick on over winter.

Bit of an update...

Got a set of wheels banded so they're now 5.5" wide.





And I'm nearly there with wiring up the '69 dash too, here's the difference between the standard osram 12v2w bulbs...



and a set of LED versions...



It's not quite ready to take anywhere though, so we'll be down for the SEC weekend and Swedish Day in the Skoda.
