Re: Entry Level Welding Equipment

Hi Guys Don’t buy anything less than 150amp gas mig welder and don’t use anything less than Argon 5 with 10 litre Bottle. Using small Bottles is a false economy they don’t last. Flux wire is useless. It will not give you a constant clean flow. Find a used one on ebay. You’re wasting your money buyi...

Hi

My car is an 86 and I wasn’t sure if that noise was right. My drivers door does it but my passenger side doesn’t.

I’ll probably check and clean the existing Ground Straps then check the Fuel Delivery rate then the injectors. I have checked and changed the vacuum hoses, Fuel Tank, Fuel Cap...

Re: Rear angled Number Plate Holder

Hi Ron.

Sorry, just so I’m clear. Are you saying the uk cars did have the angled rear Number Plate Holders fitted. If the answer is yes Ron do you think anyone has one that they could take some measurements of so I could fabricate a new piece.

Thanks

Hi Guys

Can anyone tell me if uk spec Cars were fitted with the rear angled Number Plate Holder. Or was the rear Number Plate in the uk simply screwed to the car body.
