    New to me PT Cruiser

    Nothing special for you guys out there, but Cruisers are quite a rare sight on the roads in the UK and still a bit of cheap fun. 2.2 CRD with the Merc diesel powertrain makes it practical and hopefully reliable. The Blue one is my last one I had 4 years ago - lowered and with MG ZT 18" wheels

    Here's wishing all my fellow UK DTT er's a safe outcome to this current crisis. I would have thought with everyone [ most anyway ] unable to go out and socialise that there would be a flurry of postings from various sheds, garages and workshops up and down the country. What you all up to ...

    WTF ??????????

    Sorry, don't like the new format. The black screen / white text dazzles ...... it's too stark contrast for me and I cannot scroll up or down. The black / white I'll get used to .... the scrolling is an issue.

    HELP ....... I saw a posting on here [?] recently where the builder had drilled small holes in the face of the spring caps for lightness.

    Hi guys, I'm hoping with the better availability of NOS in the US someone might be able to find me a set of AR springs. Preferably new - or as new. They are unobtainium here in the UK and EU and the guy that makes my springs [ fork and clutch ] can make these to exacting standards. As long as I...
