    Hi to all.
    Anyone know if I you can still get the plastic collars that go between the seat bolt head and the captive base in the wheel arch. I had a look at Moss and the MGOC and I can't seem to track them down.

    Yes your right Jan, not made out of the same material as the originals, but the cost of an original and then most likely having to have it restored is over the top for a non concurs car.

Since the 1960s, I accept that oil chemistry has moved forward to keep pace with engine, transmission and di...

    Nick - I'm surprised you didn't know that bridge, it's the one on the cover of the Five Bridges Suite by the Nice! (or are you just that bit younger than I thought?)
