    Looks like you're right RS. A cheap window in a cheap hood. But I've been reading loads of stuff, and even more expensive materials go the same way, and here's why.

    Found this description on

    "The rear window on your soft top is special, too. Many soft-top cars have rear windows made of a clear vinyl. This allows the window to...

    The "known to work", does what it says on the tin!!! Brakes now working perfectly!!! So one has to assume the re-sleeved and re-built servo has a fault.
    Are the bores too tight? Will have to investigate because "I HAVE TO KNOW"!

    The unique thing about this site is it gives the battery numbers, sizes and cranking amps that were in each individual car. Just click on the battery button and pick what car you have, it'll tell you what battery it should have. You can print out any of the lists. PJ

    Tom, You might find a set screw the right size with a hex recess for an Allen wrench. Since they weren't an original item, you could re tap it for a set screw with different threads. Who's to know. The pair I have look like new, but I'm setting those aside with the 4 extra arms I have, you never know. PJ

    If I had to guess Lawrence I'd imagine your window is made of polypropylene. Same stuff pop bottles and that horrible cheapo blue rope is made from.

    So I concur with you that it's to do with the quality of material.

    UV light just eats polyprop.

    It will be interesting to see how long it takes ebay to get rid of all his listings.

    I'm not sure what the scam can be though, maybe leaving your mobile number means you get a call giving more info and then asking for a deposit to secure the item.

    The story I got when I emailled the similar dodgy listing was that her father had died and she had been left the vehicle in the will, she ...

    As of yesterday the auto parts stores were full of seal beam head lights. Of course here in Florida we discontinued motor vehicle inspections in 1977. Still can not find a statistical change in safety.

    This is what I use when rewiring boats and stuff. Cheap, effective, very durable.
    Easy to install. Easy to remove if you want to alter/replace wiring - then just wind it back on afterwards.
    Wires can break out of the loom anywhere you like.

    We use miles of the stuff offshore too.

    Well you did say you're not tied to originality!

    I hate to sound like a broken record on this issue but repeated bad experiences have proven to me that ethanol free gas is far superior.
    1. The engin runs stronger.
    2. Gas milage is better.
    3. If the car is an occasional drive the storage time has less effect on ethanol free gas.
    I have found this on multiple occasions with every internal combustion engine that I own.
