Grommets will lead to wet feet if your car leaks - they will lead to wet feet if it does not leak but you travel through fords. Some you win - - -

TD's Daily Ti thread

Fitted new 4x Dunlop Blusport 195x15 tires in place of the 10 yr old Toyos on the 15 x 6.5 in OZ Ultralights when removing winter wheels/tires (original 14 x 5.5) 2019-05-01 22.09.05.jpg ). Chose the Dunlops as they have same wet grip performance as the popular Rainsports but lower acoustic noise. A...

SS1 1800 Ti No Sparks

I didn’t know any SS1s got dash veneer as standard?
I mean the strip of veneer-like stuff surrounding clock,dash- vents etc. Was that only SST/Sabre then?
