    Hi All Whats the best make and type of battery for a GTE, and do any of you use a battery conditioner for longer periods when not in use? Many thanks

    1985 GTE Hatch restore / tidy

    So after deciding to sell the car due to lack of use and time to spend on it, for some reason I now cannot stop tinkering every evening: Inlet manifold next, after some heat proof silver paint

    Including a number of boats and a house boat, which just like everything else is “..HPI clear..” and the only thing sold in the last year, a pair of trainers 😀

    Thats exactly how I did it, used a stanley knife to cut into the bottom of the U channel section, and removed enough to simply glue it on with contact adhesive. Will try to find you a photo over the weekend. This is the only one I can currently find, shows the seal being cut down.

    Calipers went off to Bigg Red last week And came back this week... Great service and quality, for £129. sunroof repair and final paint in two weeks time. Hopefully back on the road permanently, first week of June.

    Sunroof seal for Ascona B sliding sunroof

    It could be 4 to 6 weeks before it gets done as the roof and panel all need to be repainted before it is ready to fit the seal. You may have to go first...!
