Recommended black sealant for screen rubber splits?

Sugru does bond well to a variety of different things, but especially rubber. I have just used some to bridge a couple of caps in the windscreen seal on my car and I now can't see the join. Top tip - use the inside of the packet that the Sugru comes in with a few drops of water to smooth it down aft...

Recommended black sealant for screen rubber splits?

Have a look at Sugru ( https://sugru.com/) Wonderful stuff. I have used it to fill cracks in screen rubber quite successfully.

GTCIan, many thanks, it is appreciated.

Jpwill7675. The Webasto was done by a company called Hukes Car Trimmers in Great Gaddesden near Hemel Hempstead. They did a really good job and were a joy to deal with.

Thanks chaps. I was pleasantly surprised by the list as it could have been much worse. It will be a keeper so am going to do things properly. I can't wait to pick him up tomorrow.

The adventures of Tom Thumb the daily driver

Forgive me readers, it has been way too long since my last confession, I mean update. This may be a long one. You know when you are on a long journey somewhere and the first thing you do when you arrive is run into the loo as you have been holding on for the last few miles? Well Tom had a similar ex...

The adventures of Tom Thumb the daily driver

Thanks chaps, your positive comments are much welcome. I am having great fun with this little car and it never fails to raise a smile both inside and outside the car. It may not do many Miles per Gallon but certainly gives many Smiles per Gallon, which is what really matters. ScimJim, thanks for fix...

The adventures of Tom Thumb the daily driver

There I was chatting to a friend of mine about a replacement for my everyday car. A car that I commute to work in every day. A car capable of 35 miles each way on a mixture of A roads and dual carriageway / motorway. A car that needed to be comfortable and reliable and could carry occasional passeng...

Those rear lights are a fairly well-established conversion, aren't they. I seem to recall seeing at least one write up in Slice, maybe a couple of years ago. If you do revert to the standard fitting then you'd be well advised to fit LED bulbs as the standard ones are not the brightest. I missed thi...

Thanks chaps - I am very happy with it. Nigel, I believe that the wheels are Wolfrace Voodoos. They certainly have Wolfrace centre caps on them and look like Voodoos to me. JP, I have no problem with sunroofs at all, I just prefer the look of the Scimitar without them. As you say I am sure that I wi...

Thank you all for your replies, which have been really helpful and encouraging. In fact so much that whilst having breakfast yesterday I was looking to see what was out there and keeping an eye on the market when I spotted a potential car and muttered "ooo...that is nice" under my breath. My wife, u...

I think using a classic car for a daily driver is a splendid idea,once sorted they are no more unreliable as a new car though may be a tad slower and with your admiration of Japanese engineering why not have your cake and eat it with an SS1 Ti the Nissan engine version, great car ! :D Colin, Great ...

Good morning all. As I am new around here first things first - "hello" to you all, and in particular to the GTE that I see occasionally driving in rush hour traffic from Rickmansworth in the direction of Chalfont. Actually, the car that I occasionally see is part of the reason for my post. That GTE ...
