If the grip of the arms on the spindles is somewhat feeble, tie some fishing line between the arms.
If it's slack, it won't interfere with how they operate, but it will prevent an escapee from going overboard... :lol:

You were going so fast the wiper stayed on the bonnet :lol: :lol: :lol:

Sometimes in my 4L when it rains I have a puddle on the bonnet. Not enough air to blow the rain away as I drive along.

Slow 'N' Steady :D

Replaced the gearstick assembly, the old one had its rubber broken. Car is more silent now ;-) i am refurbishing an other claxon. The one in there now isn't very loud. I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to be 12v one... Can't see yet because of the dirt.

Claxon was 6 volts so??? Well we'll see. It is coping quite well with the below zero temperatures. Perfect starts, but only if it's very cold i can't get it over 55 km/H... till the engine is warmed up.
Did a test with a small portable steamcleaner on a part of the inside of the mouldy roof canvas. It stays clean for now. It did got rid of the mould very fast.

Today in the rain the cleaned part of the roof started leaking. But it has to be dry to impregnate it grgrgrgr.
