    One day you’ll regret selling them

    Removing adhesive from paintwork?

    Try some olive or cooking oil. Works wonders on adhesive residue.

    Cool. Waiting for the glass and trim to arrive. I am getting Ian and Professional Glass to do the work. Had several recommendations for him.

    Removing mud flaps

    They are just push pins, no? Try slide a thin flat screwdriver under neath and wiggle them loose a bit. Alternatively push the pin in and recover it one you have taken the plug out.

    Are the sheep skin covers fitted and would you sell them separately?

    Anyone use an outdoor car cover?

    Yes, even indoors I don’t like to use them. Apart from scratching the paint they also trap moisture. A carport or some sort of tent would be ok. Perhaps you could check out some storage facilities. They have garage size units. Just make sure it is properly ventilated.

    Check out those boots - must have nicked it off a Sasquatch.

    Swann Insurance: yay or nay?

    Yes, when I took out the cover originally. I have classic cover. Every now and then I review and increase the agreed value. As long as it is in line with the market and nothing outrageous, they will generally accept without much fuss. They will request a new set of pictures every time you do, so they can see the condition of the car.

    Swann Insurance: yay or nay?

    Still with Swann. Can’t complain. Haven’t had any major incidents which would have required their assistance though. Have agreed value, track extension, salvage rights.

    Equally interesting to know, how did one get into the car with the roof down? Especially if one was of taller or more solid stature.

    Windscreen replacement

    Thanks all, good advice. At the same time I am contemplating getting the roof re-sprayed. Working out the logistics of this at the moment

    Windscreen replacement

    Need to get the windscreen changed on the e28. Any recommendations / experiences to share? Non-bonded screen, lots of weather strips and mouldings. Wonder if insurance will replace all of these things too.

    Quick Questions

    Been thinking the same thing. I also just remembered that I should have an old AC compressor lying around somewhere...

    Quick Questions

    Thanks Allan - need to complete it today 😩 Not too Fußes if it takes a little while to create vac (happy to wait a few mins) and like to maintain it for 20-30 seconds. Have attempted to use a foot pump with deflator function but that does not work unless I would install a vac valve I guess. Brake bleed pump would take ages I think. Thinking to try it with an electric inflator/deflator pump but might also not be strong enough.

    Quick Questions

    Cheap vacuum pump needed for a school project. We have a tube of approx 1.6L volume in which we want to create a vacuum (ideally as close to 30Hg as possible. Any ideas for a cheap diy solution?
