Re: Sleeve for grub screws

My Devon rear seat is a 65 with outer vertical legs and big space with heater log bracket cut n shortened Propex outlet sits just t...

Re: Propex Installation

I mounted my propex under the rear Devon seat and the air travels only round a 90 bend only.
Maybe your hose could achieve this?

Re: Rear mirror restoration

AFAIK.. the mirror back is alloy which you can clean and polish this to its former glory.

This can be cleaned polished and brought back to a semblance of order.
