  1. Does anyone know where I can borrow or inexpensively hire a paint thickness gauge, please? I plan to machine polish my TR6 and would love to use a paint gauge for about 10 or 15 minutes. I’d rather not spend £100 or so on a machine that I probably won’t use again for a few years, at least. Thank you. I’m in SW London.
  2. Hello Roger, Thank you. That’s kind of you. Sadly, I don’t have a machining capability. I’ll have to keep looking. Thanks, again.
  3. That’s kind of you, Derek. Thank you.
  4. Thank you. That’s very helpful. I shall contact them.
  5. Thank you, Derek. That looks good.
  6. Thanks, Stuart. That’s a bit more advanced than my pay grade! I’ll keep looking for a metal vent.
  7. Thanks, Rich. I had be happy with a painted closed one, but they are for the CP model. On the later CR model, which I have, BL changed it to an open plastic feature. Thanks for the thought. I appreciate it.
  8. I experienced the same. Gosh it is embarrassing. I have a MotoLita steering wheel. If stated to develop a little bit of forward/backward play. Only about 1/16th”. Enough to upset the earth. To stop the horn sounding, until I could have it remedied, I had to pull the steering wheel toward me while driving. (Removing the horn fuse gave for an easier, although not legal, drive).
  9. I was advised to get as near as possible to 100 RON. I use Shell V Power, rated 99, with a proportionate dose of Classic Valvemaster Plus. I find this a great combination.
  10. Hello Adam, I use Castrol Heritage XL 20w/50. If you’re interested I add Classic Valvemaster Plus to the fuel tank. Kind regards, Geoffrey
  11. Evening, I am looking to replace the silver-painted plastic scuttle vent on my CR with a metal one, which I shall have chromed. Does anyone know of a source for a metal vent, please? All I can find are plastic ones. Thank you.
