    Yes, the Act that binds us to the EU - whatever that is - has to be repealed by Parliament (which means going through the Lords too) Its been mentioned a few times in the media, but always accompanied by the phrase "political suicide".

    The other thing I do - mainly to save weight - is to select only the spanners I am likely to use, rather than take any full spanner set. I do take a small 1/4" drive socket set as that is pretty light, and add an adapter so it will also work with my spark plug socket. Then I just add a 7/16", 1/2" and 9/16" ratcheting ring/open ended plus a "stubby" adjustable. Mole grips, Stanley knife and a "Lea...

    I recently read that the referendum outcome isn't legally binding in the UK anyway so could be ignored or at least debated in parliament for a final decision.

    Interesting that more people have signed the petition the the difference between the leave and remain vote which was about 1 million IIRC.

  • LS Sheldon25 June 2016

    The primary reasons people vote are emotional or financial. Politicians and the media bend the message to their own satisfaction. We can only hope that the voters can see through truths, half truths and blatant deception so that they would vote intelligently. Unfortunately this is not the case. In this world of mass communication, short sound bites are what seem to sway the voter.
    Too bad elect...

    Much as I might want a different outcome, I cannot see that happening! Although - if this were any sort of scientific investigation an outcome so close on less than a 75% sample would not be considered statistically valid and would be re-run! ;~)

  • David Billington25 June 2016

    There is a petition calling for a 2nd referendum https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/131215 , currently just below 2 million signatures. Seems a number of people didn't think we would leave so voted leave as a protest and are now regretting that "bregret".

    Oil and brake fluid I carry in the specially made box on the LH where the blanking plate is normally situated for the master cylinder on LHD cars. The fan belt fits in there too. It is wide enough to take one pint milk bottles into which the oil is decanted. It can take three one pint bottles and a half pint silicon brake fluid container. You can see the Lucas Sports coil fixed alongside.
    The c...

    I don't know if those for your MGB box are very different from and more complicated than those for my MGA, but if not then the best is to do what a good rebuilder ( or an amateur lke me ) would do - make them ( or in my case get somebody else to make them ).

  • Guyw25 June 2016

    I for one feel pretty despondent and embarrassed with the outcome. There are all sorts if things wrong with the EU but despite that l think it was economically foolish to jump ship. But the real reason l feel as l do is because l just think we should be united as people and sort out everything else with that as the underlying basis of our society.

    But the juggernaut that is the bureaucracy ...

    I am interested in a rear brake drum with good splines. I would prefer one for a 1952 TD with the later threads.

  • TC3837

    This 1947 TC was a garage find in York, PA. It is believed to be original. Admittedly, the color is non standard. Restoration specialists have been unable to determine the car color was changed from new. It is a very solid example ready for major restoration or just to enjoy as a survivor. Engine compression is +40 all 4 cylinders. Wheels have been professionally restored, tires are new (shaved an...
