Re: Side Windows - Black Finish?

The big advantage for me is that the vynil hood takes up far less space when folded up and stored in the boot.

Re: MGB Stub Axles.. new v's old

I regularly get an advisory about play in the front wheel bearings by younger MOT testers. Taper roller bearings need a tiny amount of play or they overheat and seize up. My car has done 60,000 miles in 30 years without any problem and no rubbers replaced.

Re: Side Windows - Black Finish?

Mine are not covered in mohair but in a black sort of vynil cloth. My hood is not mohair either but is an equally lightweight vynil sort of material. Roger King told me that my hood was just like the original hoods - there's a stroke of luck!

Re: HAWK EXHAUST ON A BRA?

I have a BRA 289 with a Rover engine and a 4 silencer exhaust system. I didn't buy it from Hawk I had it made by a local specialist about 10 years ago. It is still fine.

Re: Covid Crusties

I am over 70, diabetic and I had a quadruple heart bypass last year. I have been reasonably careful but we have to look after my mother-in-law who is approaching 101 years old (she still lives in her own house with a lot of help from visiting carers 4 times per day). We do her shopping etc. Car club...

Re: BRA COBRA EXHAUST

The stainless exhaust on my BRA with Rover V8 was made and fitted in Walsall, West Midlands. When a bracket broke after 10 years I took it back and they repaired it at no cost telling me it had a lifetime guarantee. That is now approaching 10 years ago.

Re: Well Done Boris

Common sense needs to prevail however. If everybody goes to the Lake District we will have a problem.
