    Was always a bit sceptical of these miracle aluminium solder type products, But bought some at the Classic car show yesterday and have to say I am pleasantly surprised. I have just tried a joint that will only be used for cosmetic purposes but I think with a bit of polishing and cleaning will...

    Well think this is possibly my 4th version , Think I will stick with this, rough fit at the moment and panels to clean up but think it will be ok. can remove the front panel to access the filler hose and this is also sealed from the interior so hopefully ok for the IVA

    Classic Car Show, NEC, November

    Yip I have to second the car park parking fee avoidance technique. Usually works , I don't do it intentionally but after the live action arena demonstration of the autosport show finishes there are no parking booths open!! So the moral is don't pay when you go in wait until you leave!!

    Front paneling around the filler cap etc?

    Both your cars are progressing well. Don't think there can be any cars that are the same as everyone goes about things completely different. First attempt. Panelling needs tidying up and cleaned/polished but trying to enclose the full area. Comments please?

    Those with a quick release steering wheel...

    I have the sparco type and there is no play at all, but I have used the spline type on a couple of circuit racers I have built and although fine for racing as you need to be able to get it off in a hurry, I would not use them for road use as there was a slight movement in them in both...
