Thanks for the various tips. I plan to use some ordinary Meguiar's liquid wax applied with a cloth. I use that on my stainless bumpers (after polishing with Solvol Autosol stainless polish) and it works well. I also have some Armorall spray protectant that I use on the alloys on another car.

I got to see one in the flesh last week whilst cycling it was covered in road grime it looked and sounded glorious not in a v8 way, even the wife commented on its looks. A factory fitted sunroof is a must though I think Alpine are missing a trick there...

So far so good, no leaks on garage floor!
How crazy is it to issue a changed radiator under warranty without fitting instructions? About as crazy as producing radiators that aren’t up to the task!

Now to enjoy the car, which is Fantastic (my 4th Morgan and the best by miles)

Cheers folks!!


Hopefully this new design setup resolves the radiator issues for good,

Can't remember what torque I tightened my one to, but it was definitely tight with a capital "F"

I haven't had one of these for years. Today in the post I was informed by an Africian gentleman that if I send him all my details, but strangely not any bank details, I will then be able to share in 150 million dollars. These usually appear on e-mails along with the Ukraine ladys so to get an actual letter is unuaual and I thought quite clever as it made me read it. Just in case any of you chaps get anything like it, it came from a Mr Martin E Kwazulunatal which many of you will recognise as a state in RSA. The company is shown as Durban Investment Inc which even a quick seach shows up as being in the USA not Brentwood, Benoni, RSA. Of course, for a small commission I will happily pass it all on to one of you chaps !!!

Alistair,

I'm not so sure that time in your garage is always a good indicator of your fondness for a car, or more a practical reality that comes from accepting the foibles and idiosyncratic traits of a given car. My measure is the number of halcyon drives I can attribute to the car, that stand head and shoulders over everything else I have experienced. That could be a combination of roads, company or circumstances that contribute to making it more memorable.

I had my Porsche 930 Turbo for nearly 10 years and can only count 2 really halcyon drives in all that time. By comparison I had a Mercedes E320 sportline cabriolet I had for a two years covered about 60k miles in it, where it just excelled on some many levels with its balance of balance of power and useable performance and was such great fun roof down and lead to a further 4 examples being in my garage upto quite recently when the last one was stolen whilst in storage.

Of course everyone will have their own measures of what constitutes a halcyon drive., but may I suggest that lengthy periods of inactivity whilst garaged isn't one of them. Whilst I enjoy my Roadster, I prefer to drive in it in the spring and autumn months where the problems of cabin heat sink and holiday traffic laden local roads form less of a hinderance to its enjoyment. I'd take my old E320 cabriolet with all year round use any day over it, which I used to drive roof down all year round as long as the mohair hood was dry. But as they say each to their own.

I once had a alloy barrel in the oven to remove the cylinder liner and unfortunately the owner of the barrel had just painted it with some barrel paint without puting it through a heat cycle. So I left the barrel in the oven and went to the shed to get the liner removal tools, well when I returned I could not see a lot because of the smoke. I managed to get the liner out OK but the room was still halve full of smoke when my wife returned!!!
After this I had to "invest" (a term you should always use when buying tools!!!) in a large propane torch which did prove a good buy.
Cheers
John.

Very sensible, I remember back in the late 70's a friend worked for Brown Brothers motor factors. One year at a UK sales meeting there was a near riot when one of the salesman's company Cortina's was spotted sporting a GL badge in the car park. Everyone else had Cortina L's, he'd simply added a G to the rear badge. Not sure of the differences, probably deeper velour upholstery, but letters of resignation were threatened!



I like that one laugh2

When I was nearing the end of my Company car era I delighted in confusing the company Accountant by always choosing a car well below my grade so as to limit my tax liability, we had full paid for family BUPA cover and Vodaphone all of which were taxable, so you did what you could to limit the damage.

A recent experience that we had on the Autostrada.



Given the speed we were doing I estimated that they were doing over 200 kph.

A tipp: I often use the sub title function at youtube - but I then set "automatically translate to German" for many videos that are suggested at TM. laugh2

No worries, Gypie Mayo was a cracking guitarist in his own right, and also deserves remembering, he left us back in 2013 IIRC.
