It was generally agreed that cross Ply was best for our cars although one opinion was the radial gave a far better road ride with less steerin...

Re: Fitting New Rubber Running Bd Mats

Thanks Luli. I glean from your pics that you put your rubbers on with the steel runners off the car. In my situation I’m replacing worn and cracked old runners with new and looking at how the runner frame is bolted to the car I’m a bit loathe to undo bolts not knowing where the fastening nuts are, f...

Fuse Amp ratings

Would appreciate advice as to the correct fuse rating for my P2 47. I’ve blown an accessory fuse it was my own fault when putting in a “new old horn” sourced from Mike Coudrey. I replaced with a 3 amp fuse I had but I feel it should be higher. Workshop manual refers to 25 amp rating. Is this correct...
