The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well. k den
Quick update: We need to update the forum software. I'm preparing to do that, and I'll have to take the site offline for a few hours. I'll announce the maintenance window ahead of time. It will probably be a weekend night. I'm on the west coast, so east coast people will see very little downtime unless they're night owls. I trust you can all keep yourselves amused for a few hours by building something, like maybe a model car.
The biggest problem with British cars were the electrics, and the dealers. It took me a while to learn how to tune the carburetters, but now that I've figured it out, it's easy. Ironically, parts for MGs are cheaper than their Honda equivalents. Biggest problem is that the rubber parts aren't very durable any more.
I've done it both ways. Spraying on the tree, then touching up works best with flat, non-metallic finishes. But, for the most part, I assemble them into some rational unit, do any necessary filing and fitting, then paint them.
Welcome. you'll fine a lot of nice people and boatloads of good information here. All my childhood builds are gone, and that's probably a good thing. They were generally terrible. My current builds are better, but it's always a learning experience.
