  1. Looking for a new Tinted windscreen for my 3.2 carrera.
  2. Looking to get my seats retrimmed in leather, can you recommend anyone in Norfolk/ East Anglia? Happy New Year!
  3. Kieran are these still for sale ?
  4. Had my car transformed by Chris absolutely brilliant!
  5. Just had the same symptoms as 12cc, wipers fail to park and no intermittent function. Changed the relay the fault was still apparent. Following tons of advice on Pelican and here I decided to investigate the switch. Pushing, pulling and all other attempts at achieving a contact in the switch failed. Steering wheel and clam shells off and the switch looked dirty but nothing I wouldn't expect on a car built in 87. With the switch out of the car I was able to identify the plastic spigot that pushes 2 contacts together to park the wipers. This connection was not being made because the rivet that holds the stack of wafers to the circuit board was loose. Applying not too much pressure to the soft metal rivet with a set of mole grips tightened everything up nicely. Switch back in the car success. Sorry I didn't take a picture, but after spending money on a new relay I wanted to pass on this potential fix to all similarly afflicted individuals.
  6. 73 quid for 5ltrs is this stuff made from unicorn tears!
  7. Just got back via SFO. Hired an open top Camero to circle California including Napa, Yosemite, Death Valley, Vegas, Santa Barbara and finally Monterey. The Tioga pass was breath taking and well worth the drive. Imagine my wife's surprise to discover that the Porsche Club America meet was on in Monterey during our final days Take lots of money my wife spent loads!
  8. Having just about finished my suspension refurb can anyone recommend anyone in East Anglia for corner balancing and set-up? Cheers
  9. It seems that I'm struggling to get any sort of M9 Bolt irrespective of head.
  10. Gents Have split my front calipers and in the process trashed the Ribe Bolts. Can you recommend a replacement, I have tried Nutters Fastenings to no avail. Wish I'd just sent them away now
  11. Nick I'll take those please. The pair that is.
  12. Gents What did the Ossi Blue 912 go for Lot 136 it looked sweet!
  13. GT Two I think I'm looking for the same thing, I have no heat exchangers anymore and wish to blank the fan shroud behind the distributor. $60 from across the pond plus $50 postage seems pricey.......!!
  14. Mr P Now you've gone all Nicki Minaj with your big buttt! What are you doing with those tiny minilites you had before? Obviously far too small for such enormous proportions!
