    Re: Need a T-Shirt Entrepreneur

    Man! Were you involved in the design? Or just found it?? Doug
    PS: definitely cool!
  3. Re: Looking for a temporary cup holder - but my heart is pure

    Thanks for the sites, and the suggestion! Doug
  4. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    Jim: glad to see that you're planning on not losing any body parts that you're attached to (the better half reference).
    JP: you're not alone in slinking. But it's always better to throw out some...
  5. Looking for a temporary cup holder - but my heart is pure

    Canadian Blood Services have revised some rules and allow beverages and snacks for donations that take time (e.g. plasma and platelets) and the chairs you occupy now have a portable/temporary cup...

    Re: Smart Car Seats in a Spridget?

    Also, which model TRS seatbelts are you using and how convenient do you and your passengers find them? I've got old racing harnesses (sans the crotch strap) in our Meyers Manx Clone dune buggy and...

    Re: Smart Car Seats in a Spridget?

    Could you add a photo of the total car c/w seats and headrests? Just curious how it all looks. Thanks, Doug
  8. Re: Interesting Jalopnik article on BEING TOUGH ON TODAY'S ROADS !!

    Had fun reading that. But 'tough' is not a word I'd use for much/many in the driving world. Tough is being able to cope with life's little challenges, or at least being willing to try to cope with...

    Re: how to have music/radio when driving

    Just watched a youtube of Jay Leno's garage, dealing with his 1955 Mercedes Benz 300 SL Gullwing coupe (a vehicle I lusted after for eons). He commented that Mercedes did not equip them with radios....

    Need a T-Shirt Entrepreneur

    A while back, I ran across a bumper sticker that proclaimed: "This vehicle is protected by an anti-theft device: a standard transmission".
    Which led me to thinking of an Austin-Healey t-shirt that...

    Re: how to have music/radio when driving

    Not quite what I expected when starting this thread, but (1) an interesting comment on the 'maturity' of most of the folks driving LBCs and (2) dang useful in learning and understanding stuff that is...

    Re: Whole project must go

    I'm 73, and sympathise.
    Back in the day, I figured time/money/energy: if you had two, you could get things done. Now I realize that one of the two HAS to be 'energy' - time and money just doesn't...

    Re: vented gas caps?

    THe BE was parked with its tush pointed towards the sun and a bit less than half a tank of gas in it. The low last night was about 9C and the high today in the low 20s, with lots of sunshine onto...

    how to have music/radio when driving

    What works for you folks?
    I recently installed a construction type FM radio 'cube' in our dune buggy, just forward of the shifter and pointing slightly upwards and rearwards. I picked it because it...

    Re: vented gas caps?

    been fooling with gas caps again, and it appears that the blast of air that was troubling me is actually air escaping from the tank. The plastic centre piece appears to contain some sort of flapper...
  16. Re: supporting BE tonneau cover during heavy rains

    I like the 'don't park it in the rain'. I'd rather not change anything on the body. One thing I'd been thinking originally was just to cut a piece of 1x6 to an appropriate length and slip it in...
  17. Re: supporting BE tonneau cover during heavy rains

    The cockpit on the non-BE Spridgets is longer than our BE, so presumably would benefit from an additional support. Our cockpit ends right behind the seats - the exercise ball looks like the best...
  18. Re: Trying to find an accurate tyre pressure gauge

    I'm not concerned about 0.5 psi; I am concerned over several psi. Plus, we all have our weird little interests (i.e.: hangups). Doug
  19. Re: Trying to find an accurate tyre pressure gauge

    Finally smartened up and dropped Milton a note last week, asking about their accuracy. I'll report back if/when I get a reply. And they do identify if the tire gauge was manufactured in the USA...
  20. Re: supporting BE tonneau cover during heavy rains

    Found a (approximate) 20 inch dia/64" circumference exercise ball in the basement and it does the trick; still need to pick up a twin for the second seat.
    I bought a couple of 16 inch beach balls...

    Re: 110 octane fuel

    Just ran across this thread and figured I'd mention that I make sure I've got non-ethanol fuel in the tank and through the carbs before storing it for the winter. And - yeah, it's criminal, but I...

    I've mentioned trying to develop a 'roll bar' for our bugeye (not for protection against rollover, but against pickup trucks running red lights) and here is where we are at the moment. The...
  23. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    There's a couple of ways that they fail. My sole experience is that the splined end (that goes into the diff) twisted off. Others have had them fail at the connection between the outer end flange...

  25. Re: Help with 60 Bugeye - major drivetrain issue...

    Keep life simple: finding the Datsun 5 speed may take time and that 40 year old transmission is not inexpensive. You'll need the Sprite clutch assembly with the Rivergate kit; Gerard uses the...
