At last a German quality product on a Brit hide It's beyond my comprehension that we can't make a rubbish bin here all ours have the MIG and TUV on them.

Love to see his face when the council jobsworth comes for it ..

There's probably some legal infringement going on there. Lets hope "The Council" don't get onto it.

I would mount a square number plate on the raised section.

The bins are the local authorities property hence the earlier jobsworth comment. We had a similar "issue" down here with a friend of mine testing his outboard in one grin2 when said jobsworth turned up - he just cracked the throttle open and it got a bit wet and noisy and it crept back in it's hole.
Unlike in Germany you had to buy your own galvanised bin for DM50 back in 1976.

Our bins are branded MGB. It was said that the designer hated MGB's so much that he deliberately named his bin design....MGB.

He must have had a bad one...........OK most of them are quite um, bad........

But good ones are very good.

That'll be the special 'winter' running mode. A desperate attempt to get a tiny bit of heat in the cab....

Most Series Landy owners have been down that route laugh2
Only works in low speed areas anyway - once speed gets up to extra urban pace the various drafts soon remove any cab heat! rofl

Spent six years doing my 50 mile commute in a 1962 S2A!

Eventually plumbed in an old austin mini heater between the front seats, pulled out the standard smiths 'shin burner' (same as found in my 4/4) and replaced with a upgraded square one from Holden (which they seem to have stopped selling - shame as it was very good) and finally managed to get it reasonably warm!

The old Smiths "fug stirrer" laugh2
Always had cold feet due to the "warm" air never getting deep into the footwell in my '66 SIIa.
We never bothered with fitting any other kind of heater - extra socks and heavier footwear sufficed smile
A '72 SIII 12 seat Station Wagon was slightly better...
