Re: May 23rd Virtual Mini Meet

Oh and everyone that entered a bonnet shot will get a prize.

Caveat is that aerosols are a bugger to post so you have to collect your prize at the next physical meet!

Re: May 23rd Virtual Mini Meet

Same goes with electric handbrakes. I’m convinced engine bays are designed to be as intimidating as possible to force you to take i...

Re: May 23rd Virtual Mini Meet

Hindsight certainly is a wonderful thing though... It's odd that "modern" cars should be perfect - Still a LONG way to go of course - And yet, even with all the improvements, we don't crave them like we do a wedge.

Re: May 23rd Virtual Mini Meet

Just noticed looking at the engine bays that the shock absorber struts are held in by bolts at the top, some are head at the top others are nuts at the top. Not very important but unusual. Andrew Simple explanation! They're all the same. The shocker absorber nut is covered by a plastic plate, that ...
