Shooting Brakes

Sorry, should have said HGV tyre testing, they apparently mounted lorry tyres on a test wheel inside the cabin.
What they then did to / with them I've no idea.
Mind you, that machine must be a pretty Heavy Goods Vehicle itself ...

Google doesn't recognise Jaguar XF.
I don't recognise modern Jaguars in general (type F is an exception).
But you couldn't mistake that one, is it a hearse?

Incidentally the Citroën is a mobile tyre testing station built for Michelin.

Scimba - Just add fuel

How thick is too thick? Cutting gaskets is easy, even I can do it. Mastic is even easier 8) I think Sikaflex (or other polymer / polyurethane) mastic is resistant to everything short of a thermonuclear attack. But, as they say, read the label to be sure. Also, it seems to me that Hermetite do a petr...

Scimba - Just add fuel

Do you need such a thick seal?
Could you cut one out of gasket paper or cork or whatever?
OR abandon it and use Sikaflex ...

Scimitar SE6 Trackday car from France

Welcome indeed, felicitations on your purchase - and on your english! Now it seems it is the turn of Scimitar race cars to emigrate, we already have the ex-Howard Nelson car over here :wink: That seems to sit the road nicely, but it would if family Carter set it up.
