Calculation of force

I've been retired a long time now and so my brain doesn't work as well as it did so I might be missing a trick here, but.... The weight of the mass acts vertically down, any force required to move the mass requires a horizontal component. As there is no friction there is nothing to oppose the force ...

B-pillar Back to Black

As a slight aside, I have a pair of highly polished stainless steel B post covers that came with SAR when I bought it back a few years ago. If anyone's interested I could get rid for the price of a few beers :mrgreen: I could take a pic if there is any interest.

Ians GTC rebuild. Now the work begins

Looking fantastic Ian. Did you use SMS for the paint job in the end? I know what you mean about replacing parts 'cos they look a bit naff, but there has to be some compromise or else the car ends up more new and less original if you know what I mean. A bit like Trigger's Broom :roll: :D . Looking fo...

MOT exemption

Geoff, as I understand it , your car is automatically MOT exempt at 40 yrs. If you go for a voluntary test, the garage will apply the same standards as they do now, but it won't be entered in the computer, they will just give you the report. It is your legal responsability to decide whether the car...

MOT exemption

Trevor, .......and maybe then every 2 years for safety's sake. Stu That's an interesting point, Stu. So, if I take a year off from having an MoT and then decide to put it in for one, will this be recorded by the DVLA as being MoTd? And then if I take the next year off it'll be recorded as exempt? A...

Funny peculiar brake issue

All good suggestions, thank you, but can't understand why it's so infrequent, and it doesn't coincide with any particular action on my part. If it's a seal, which I'm not doubting, why doesn't it happen more often????
