Re: One for the ICE experts...

Here’s a nice thread discussing the principles of why you can’t do what I’m suggesting: https://forums.digitalspy.com/discussion/1225114/phono-splitters-combiners I have not had any problems using splitters as combiners but it’s up to you, if you want to be in the safe side then a proper switcher or...

Re: One for the ICE experts...

There is exactly that, an RCA Y-splitter, available either as a solid connector or as a pigtail cable. Whichever type you choose you’ll need one for each channel. The purists will say you need a proper switch which are also available - they properly select one pair of inputs at a time and isolate th...

Re: Camping near Newquay

There’s a campsite in Porth, nice little valley / beach next to Newquay but walking distance back to the other beaches like Lusty Glaze if you fancy it. Can wander over the road to the beach and the pub and it’s quite a peaceful site.

Re: Splitscreen pop outs

Aluminium ones are tight as f... They’re a different profile and not as flexible as steel, especially once painted. I’m reliably informed that providing you get your rubber on first and apply a lot of lube you’ll eventually manage to squeeze it into the slot, although I’ve yet to manage mine. Try wr...

Re: Flap return spring - too long ?

This is what mine looked like. My shroud is aftermarket but the flaps and linkage bar are original. The doghouse shroud has three linkage bars as in my photo - two shorter ones for the two sets of flaps and one long one to link those two. The non-doghouse shroud has a single bar like yours, except y...

Re: VW Restorers in Cornwall, uk

Trailer Queen Restos are down there too and have a good reputation.

Evil Ben’s is superb although tends to be more mechanical rather than body work but he does do both.

Re: Spaceway whale pump and tank ?

Somewhere in the back of my head I’ve got a feeling that 66 were like this and then 67 had a plastic bottle / tank which could be removed for filling?

There’s some old spaceway reference threads from BJ1 which will have details of you search back through I think?
