Re: how many Marinas left in Ireland?

I cheated and went for both.
Saloons should really have a plain back flash.
But what the heck!

Re: East Kent trim

I did my escort hatch screens with some a few weeks ago. From a distance it's not too bad but.....has also degraded.
It doesn't like going around sharp corners.
I even did it on a red hot day having soaked it in a bucket of hot water too!

Rear Seatbelts.

Hi,
I understand that Metro/ 114 rear belts go straight in on a Marina. Has anyone actually done this?
I recently purchased a complete set. So looking for pointers or pitfalls before I start the job.
Thanks in advance.

As long as changes are done in good time then no need to worry really. I'm guessing that the latest mineral oil will be better performing with better additives than back in the 70's. T

Re: BATTERY

The one on mine is a Yuasa...but the correct marina heavy duty spec.
I've left it for a good few months now so will be taking off to charge.
Or possibly do a jump start. We'll see...!
