(As usual, not sure which section this should be in, so moderators please redirect if necessary, and....) Apologies if anybody's already done this, but my wife just spotted this, including an interesting if not necessarily desirable Scim. http://www.classicandsportscar.com/news/amazing-collection-af...

Battery chargers

Gents - I was thinking of getting one of these 'intelligent' trickle chargers that you leave permanently connected to the battery during long periods of non-use. From your experience a) are they a good idea and b) do you recommend (or otherwise) any particular make/model; or are they all much of a m...

Corroless - one coat chassis protection

It's been around for over 50 years and I've only just found it ... hmm, seems about normal :cry:
Same here. Typical, just when I've stopped doing up chassis................... :(

Good or Appropriate Number Plates

Half way up the A1(M) this p.m. M155 FXY. Chased it for a few miles to get a glimpse of the driver and it turned out to be a not very pretty, old man............ :roll:

Keep forgetting...........

I've searched till I'm nearly round the bend, and I can't find it.............

TIA

Ben's SS1 - SSF novice sprint car

I fitted a HT to my SS1 just before Christmas and had exactly the problem you have. It's very slightly irritating, but no more. My own thought on this (which may be totally wrong - I'm no expert) is that if any body panels on this model are ever removed/replaced, unless scrupulous care is taken, the...

Mystery Reliant

Wouldn't give it house-room myself....... :D ( but it looks the sort of thing we were talking about at that time (fire pumps), I think.)

INFRARED THERMOMETER (LASER)

I think mine was £18, in Lidl about two years ago.
Got one because somebody on here said how useful they were, but have never used it in anger..... :roll: (no Smiley for severe eye-rolling)

Fascinating Scimitar...

Ebay link here No it's not just you Dave, apart from the v5 and plate, I don't think I can see anything else..... :W Thanks, Roger; you just saved me some time. :) So I wonder how this would go down with the Type Approval police?

Fascinating Scimitar...

Is it just me? (Old age and early morning, etc.)
This eBay item 322992348975 has a Scimitar V5 and Chassis plate and from the photos I don't think I can see anything that looks even remotely Scimitar.
Perhaps I'll go back and look more carefully later in the day................ :shock:
