Re: Apologies may be needed?

This dog will not sleep or lie down. Sounds like you've reached critical mass already Alan and will be able to escalate the situation further without additional input. It's all working again now thanks to a small number of members who have given up their own time to focus on the issue. It has alway...

Re: Apologies may be needed?

Ladies, please move on. Its true that the club pays third party providers for the hosting of the website, but all the hard work that Andy, Paul and others put in is purely voluntary, conducted during their spare time when they are not at work, and for the benefit of all club members. This is true of...

Re: Club Newsletter

Thanks John for sending through the missing newsletters. Got the most recent three issues.

I'll try to print Spring and Summer '16 unless anybody out there has a 'spare' copy :wink:

Thanks again.

Re: AC boot badge

Removing the gap was a simple enough task when I built the car.

Trying to help Homewood with his question if that is what he would prefer to do.

Re: AC boot badge

Sorry Clive, I meant boot :D

Yes Paul it's in the right place, and there are no perfectly flat spots on a 289 boot.

Re: AC boot badge

I laid mine flat on a thick folded towel and hit it firmly and centrally several times with a rubber lump hammer :D

Just worked a gentle curve into it over time. Now happens to follow the curve of the bonnet beautifully.

Re: Club Newsletter

OK. I was just expressing an opinion on the significance of the newsletter. I'm clearly wrong.

Re: Club Newsletter

I know Dave and I need to accept responsibility for not being more proactive. When they haven't arrived I've typically thought I'll give it a few more days, but then work and the kids take over and it's suddenly in the past. I hadn't realised it could have been a full year. The odd thing is I'm not ...
