    The Donald.

    Probably shouldn't joke but was wondering if the press would go for the headline:- Donald DUCK!!!
  2. Any thoughts on beer this month, if you haven't already. Thought I'd just ask as the sun's shinning and been out in the Elise. I may however be covid +ve at the moment as we've had in the household (I'll definitely test before meet if it's soonish)
  3. Very easy fix. The sidelight bulb sits in a plastic holder that just pushes into the back of the headlight. It can be accessed through the bung on the front of the wheel arch liner, you will have to turn the steering to get a hand in. Usually it just needs a wiggle if the bulb hasn't blown. Useless memory but were the headlights from a Renault 4 or similar?
  4. @Techyd That'd be brave as it's pissing it down here, assuming you meant the car.
  5. Are you still planning to do bear and ragged staff, Romsey tonight ? If so I shall try to make it. Thought I'd just check online, closing time of 11pm.
  6. Not sure if I can, bit snowed under but getting there. Lotus still in storage and looking very manky it's gone mouldy inside hopefully it'll clean up OK (had some scum bags on the Rob luckily didn't get into that building just my friends workshop) . I was gonna get it this weekend but alas something else has broken and needs my attention. 🤬 At least the Samurai got its MOT,with best emissions it's ever had, not bad considering the engine was spread across the garage weeks ago, with a heavily corroded and warped head.

  9. Unfortunately it's already over £250. I assume the hedge cutter comes with the car to assist in the body repairs, or maybe someone's already started. As for the recipe, it is a FULL recipe given. I can't stand part recipes.

  13. I like your enthusiasm, I don't wish to seem negative and its your car. But I could see a few issues with that approach. 1. Setting them firmly enough may require bonding, as you can't tighten them up much into the ally. 2. Wouldn't be able to slide the panel into place. Maybe not an issue. 3. Main reason for me is anything sticking out the bottom of the chassis is going to get really hammered (I managed to loose the entire leading edge of a sill from a shed load of flints) I use button head SS (A2) on mine with a spring washer, makes for a low profile and neat finish. The only issue is the danger of rounding off the Allen if there overtightened.
  14. I would steer clear of aluminium bolts for this use myself. I use a couple of gold anodised fairing bolts on the rear number plate and they are really soft compared to steel. The added benefit of the wax oil (dinitrol) is it acts as a bit of a mild thread locker when it sets and dissolves easily in white spirit. I don't use a lot, just abit in the threads. As I understand it you need an electrolyte for the galvanic corrosion process. So my thinking is use SS but isolate with plastic washer under the SS washer and use something to block any moisture getting to the joint. I believe zinc acts a sacrificial barrier so I suppose you could use SS fixings with steel BZP washers but would need changing as the plating reduces. A bit of topic, but whenever I have an undertray off I give it spray of polish/wax (I use Williams stuff for this) it seals the surface a bit and cuts down the moisture and dirt with the additional benefit of making the underneath shiny. Keep us updated, I would be interested to know what you settle on.
