Re: Paint Problem.

Certainly a coverage problem - I would have put at least 4 - 5 coats of the colour on - reds & maroons are notorious for ghosting effect due to lack of coverage - especially over a primer which is lighter in colour than the topcoat - which is why most professional bodyshops now use coloured primers ...

The advert this morning that I posted distinctly said LHD which is why I mentioned it and also listed it as an auto which is why I posted it for JPB - obviously the dealer is in a muddle with his stock and has since edited the advert - I rest my case m' Lord

John - Would this suit as an interim classic in the meantime - unsure if it is too low for you - but looks to be a nice motor - downside being that its LHD - but hey great for direct access to the pavement and not having walk around to the right hand side - and it would have a fair bit of grunt on t...

Re: Yet another "what should I buy next?" type of thread..

John - Has you are pretty fixated on this VW thing (well not a VW Thing but you know what I mean) and allegedly they were part of the Switzerland scenery and can turn up there - should that be case I have a very good Jowett owning mate (one who I did the early Javelin restoration for) who resides in...

Personally John I think you still ought to 'Compromise' and think about a different model altogether - you going to stand a far better chance of locating & owning a more popular model than what you are that VW lash up - I mean what could possibly go wrong with a Ms Friel model

John - I think you ought to look a word up in the Oxford Dictionary - it's under C - try 'compromise' :lol: - I could just imagine being your personal shopper - you would have to have 'The Samaritans' on speed dial ! - however having said that I am just the same once I set the target / agenda then t...

JPB said : EIGHT AND A HALF Grand! For a Multipla -

John it's cheap enough - if you can do a restoration on it for under £15k = total investment £23.5k - they fetch £30 - £35k restored on the open market so not that bad of an investment then.

JPB said: I'm having a T147 if it takes me to Christmas to find one!
