Re: OG steering lock

A good locksmith should be able to cut you a key. I've had the Sperwolf shifter locks keys cut by Thomas Locksmiths in Portland Road, Hove. It's worth asking them if you cannot find someone locally. Good luck. Dave

Re: Wanted: Devon sink unit (next to bench seat)

What should the sink look like in the 60/62? Does anyone have a source for these as mine has something different fitted.

Re: went to see a '56 bus, need some quick advice please

It's worth checking the back of the vin plate; I've heard of the front being too rusty to read but the back is generally less rusty so you can sometimes make out the numbers from the rear. Good luck!

If there is nothing holding it in p...

Re: steering lock...how does it work

Thanks. I always like to do these things right if Zi can and following the manufacturers instructions seems right to me. If not we can sort it.
