    Re: Bleeding Brakes!

    "... Norman Nock's book recommends against using a pressure bleeder ..."

    Did Norman give a reason? My pressure bleeder works a treat; you just can't use anything over about 10PSI:

    Re: Best Interiors

    Agree completely. I paid a local upholstery shop $500 to do my leather seats and the man who did the work--an 83-year-old with 70 years' experience--said getting the skins to fit over the foam was a...

    Re: Best Interiors

    We put a Moss interior in our BN2 (leather seats). Couple minor imperfections, but no major complaints; I think the biggest 'issue' was that the floor pieces weren't trimmed as nicely as the high...

    Aussie Imports

    Caught this in my dad's 'Old Cars Weekly.' Since folks Down Under like to steal our cars and convert them to work on the wrong side of the road I thought I'd pass it along (top article).

    Re: BN1 Ignition question.

    I didn't see it happen, nor did I see the wound, so it's possible it didn't go down that way. I did see the mechanic's heavily bandaged hand, and either he or someone else told me what happened (it...

    I suspect, since this was his profession, that this mechanic had employed this technique many times before without being injured as well. Your protest notwithstanding, I'll bet you'll be a bit more...

    Re: 100/6 vs 3000 driving experiences

    1) $30K, 2) $40K (probably on the high end for both)

    My dad gets several magazines--Hemmings, Old Cars, Hagertys, etc.--with price guides. I usually only check the 100s and the BJ8s and last I...

    Re: Psst, wanna buy some spare parts?

    Or a rear end sale (but that doesn't sound quite right).

    My first thought was maybe Gary Hemphill is liquidating. Last time something like this came around David Nock snatched it up IIRC.

    FWIW, I just bought a slug of gearbox and OD parts from DWR. Their prices are mostly quite reasonable for the quality, but shipping adds some of course, and Customs--well, don't get me started on...

    Re: Ride height

    That does look mo' betta, and since you don't have resonators you won't trash them every couple of years. It's a shame BMC couldn't be bothered to modify the rear wings on the PII BJ8s.
