Re: Low mileage Celebration for sale

I suppose, for someone who is going to put the car on display, original tyres on the original wheels is quite a bonus - you'd just need a second set of wheels if you wanted to drive it, rather than just have it to trailer to exhibitions. Which kind of brings me on to my whole "originality" point. I...

Re: Low mileage Celebration for sale

I've been through the KGF photos with a fine-toothed comb and must admit that I am struggling to find anything of significance. :o They comment themselves about the weather-seals, and I notice the usual crack is starting in the dashboard, but hey - find me a 480 without these problems, and neither ...

Re: Right Door Window + qutr glass + side mirror

Willing to be corrected here but....

Isn’t eBay the best way to do it? As a seller you can offer the item “worldwide”; you then pay postage to the nearest eBay shipping depot, they ferry it around the world to the customer.

Re: out of hibernation for a while.

oh I'm the opposite! Thanks to being the owner of a glassback (those years in the motortrade were killers), I tend to find heated seats a blessing in anything other than hot summers days.

Re: Cooling fan rattle

I think they’re generic across the range; is the fan bolted securely to the frame?
