I am not "that jammy" very often. The hassles of the car often out-weighs the good fortune. The second pair of trims were cheap because they were said to be tatty. But they were cleaner and much tidier than my existing trims. Smiles all round. :D Normally Gary, you are far luckier than I ...

So I now have 4 trims for a whopping £12.50, and he hand delivered them to my works.

:cool


Maybe we should change your name from Robsey to "Mr Hartley".

D'oh! And yes, get it washed! Hiding that lovely colour (though it doesn't have a patch on Smoke Grey ;) )

Heavy duty may also be down to auto / manual too. Auto box is substantially heavier than the manual box.. Just my 2p worth.

Plastics out time.. then sit in the boot when it rains.

I'd be tempted to get those dehumidifier boxes and velcro it to the side of the boot to pull the moisture out of the air. I'd also look at the top of the tailgate at the umbilical cord type thing, and the tops of the c pillers They are prone to cracking and letting water in under the rubber seals.

I got bored of reading the same old questions too, and people not listening to what they are being told when they ask a question, it's tedious and frustrating. Part of the quietness could be that the questions have been answered before, and that visitors / readers are actually using the search func...

Hi Gary, I think the mechanism is completely different between the GTE Digi Dash and the Cavalier clocks. Not sure about the later electronic Cav speedos. I assume the pulse will all be wrong. The GTE uses 6, 8 or 16 pulses depending on wheel size and specific cluster / transducer combination. The ...

They also take a lot of funds and patience.

Thought I'd covered this in a how2, 2x15 bolts hold the arms to the rack with a spring plate to keep things in place.
Use a blunt chizel to spread the pinched area after winding the 13mm bolts out of the adjusters.

I'll be playing with De-ox gel again come the spring months I think.

You need the mechanical gearing from a spare set of clocks Rob?

Same old reasons for me, lack of time ad nothing new really to talk about Cav wise.
