In reply to # 3734274 by thebeav55 Oh yea, gotta add that beer Johnny !

Thanks Paul,
I will take your advice as obviously you are a very wise man. Being a novice do I apply beer or copper slip first?

Today I removed the Hardtop, installed the tonneau cover, and drove to work. Much better visibility, so much so that I went Brit (Left lane) on the drive by looking around too much. Nice to hear the morning birds as well.

Justin totally agree, the best way to drive, possibly not on the left though your side of the pond.

All the best Johnny

Right, at least not very far or often.

Sorry to see your broken part. Not sure why parts land plastic-side down. I guess it's like dropping one's bread and it landing on the floor butter-side down.

Drove my right hand drive car in anger for the first time last weekend. It was easier than I expected, but then I used the whole road. grinning smiley

Wonderful Rick,

Hope you get many more outings in the near future. But no hood or windscreen, that's just blown my topless winter drives out of the pond lol

As for the carburetor, I wish I had, had that beer first at least I'd have something to blame it on other than my butter fingers (though next time I might oil the linkages when it's safely sitting on the car).

Have a great weekend guys.

All the best Johnny

If everyone has the same heading, what's the problem?

By the way, I just realized (Realised?) that my post is in the 'Midget' category instead of the 'B'. Sorry for the cause of any cringing!

Really cool, Rick! Say, do you use one of your headlight pods as a scoop to feed cool air to the intake?

Sorry if we lose you Justin,

A series engine, B series engine but same badge on the front, where's the harm.
No need to apologise just enjoy your car.

All the best Johnny
