  1. You're better off getting them recovered. Unless you manage to find a low mileage breaker, they'll all have started to shrink.
  2. BTW, I did get passenger seat foam and had it swapped over. Made a massive difference although my bolster was in good condition, I just wanted it to look and feel like brand new. You can buy new foams too I think from CZP. At least you used to.
  3. Couldn't agree more. Seat comfort for the Z32 is incredible. I was always surprised how well I felt after a long drive, especially a trans continental drive. I never ever felt uncomfortable, not matter how long the drive yet much more modern cars, seat comfort is nowhere near as good. My 2 year old Mercedes, not as comfortable, my Aston Martin, not as comfortable. Both are comfy though, just not as comfortable as the seats in a 300zx - I'd personally never change them from the original design.
  4. Pissing down all day here today, same again tomorrow and Monday. The Aston stays in the garage (the Z would have done too).
  5. Get yourself one of these. ? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/You-Cant-Blame-Me-I-Voted-Remain-Passport-Holder-Cover-Case-EU-Brexit/223682223179?hash=item34147fdc4b:g:-~0AAOSwa4JdjNvD
  6. All in good jest gents - just venting not criticising your own personal decisions towards this - we all have different reasons for preferencing one thing over another.
  7. My very worn out EU passport. I still have 5 years left of this (albeit in name only), but I'll get a nice purple cover with EU markings over it to cover up the embarrassment of the replacement when I have to get one of those. ??
  8. It's far from finished; little UK thinking the EU will struggle without us and dissolve? UK has more to lose than Europe will ever do and has already started down that path with various car plants scheduled to close, huge financial services moving to continental Europe - the UK's not the powerhouse that many of its nationals think it is and now all that is compounded by COVID. It's a sh*tstorm on gargantuan proportions. All because of a preference for blue passports, a dated argument over sovereignty, restricting European citizens' right to work and can apply a few of our on 'BSI' type standar
  9. I am fully aware of geographical and continental landmasses Marty, but thanks. ? No, it's no more a concern than national/home-grown security issues. I'm an internationalist and a purveyor of global unity for the greater good of all, not just one entity (the one I happen to live in) - things have to evolve and continue. No, you're right, you'll never please all countries, but you find common ground at that macro level just as you do at a micro level within country borders. I desperately hope it will work, but as a country we've gained absolutely nothing from this.
  10. Sounds shite to be honest. This so-called 'sovereignty' which has been the backbone of all these arguments is a dated and unappealing concept dating to a time were Britain and the world was in a very very different place. I've still yet to see a single compelling argument in leaving the EU, not one. The majority of the time, the UK got exemptions to EU policy, it got its own way a LOT. This whole exercise has given the UK northing but a costly exit bill with nothing to show and reduced mobility. The insurance and investment policy that is the EU has now gon
  11. I've driven a huge number of Z32 over the years, some of them with a 'short throw shifter' fitted and they're absolutely HATEFUL. The stock throw is fairly short, the only thing that needs doing is the bushes replacing. You can go for the bronze ones, but honestly, the nicest feeling are a new set of stock nylon bushes. Short Throw Shifters are about as over rated as Christmas and football.
  12. Still no decorations up and I really can't be bothered with purchasing and installing Christmas tat to Chez Simone.
  13. Don't waste your time trying to find used windscreen scuttles, passenger side ones especially seldom come up and what does come up is usually tatty. You're better off buying a complete new scuttle whilst you still can, they won't be available forever. I think they're only about £150 new and transform the car - it's often in the detail. False economy buying used trim parts like that.
  14. You'd be surprised. The odd horror pops up, but it's few and far between thankfully. I don't think any car marque has been immune from being ruined. Seen some terrible Bentleys and Rolls Royces which have been touched by the hands of people with absolutely no taste or style.
  15. Proper 'council estate touring car' that one. Not sure the owner read back what he'd written, awful advert, as bad as the car. Whilst the Vile-side bodykit is ghastly, the majority of that car could be fixed by simply removing all the dreadful 'magpie' autojumble add ons and the donkey-dick exhausts which make the car look like a wheelbarrow. Steering wheel and bin-liner window tints are pretty comical too. It's like the owner just looked through magazines of various genres blind folded and played 'pin the nail on the donkey' when making their selection of Christmas-cracker parts.
  16. Very nice Gary! Car looks fantastic! I absolutely love the pearl yellow. Your castor is a little out on the driver's side front wheel.
  17. When I went to Stillen's place in California about 6 or 7 years ago, I saw number 75 in bits, even with the clam shells off and the thing all in pieces, it looked awesome. Sadly I was unable to take photos of it, but quite a privilege. It was being prepared for the Monterey Classic at the time.
  18. Seen quite a few late model cars with rot on them. Feel for the owners as there's less rust proofing that earlier cars.
  19. I've seen far far worse, absolutely shocking condition it is, Alex's is in much better condition. This other 99-spec, the arches have gone, the whole underneath looks like it's been sat in the Mariana Trench for 20 years, just a mess.
  20. Nice, when my Z was imported in the mid 2000s, it arrived with me sporting Razo pedals. Absolutely bloody dreadful things they were. Any of those clip on pedal covers are just awful. I replaced the rubbers as they had compression marks on them and the accelerator pedal all with new items. One of the first things I did. Junk! I don't think the accelerator pedal is available new anymore is it? Glad you've found one!
  21. None of that affects the everyman and is such a miniscule point it doesn't matter. The UK closed its borders too!!! ? I mean it's not like that's an everyday occurance, it's a once in a lifetime thing - it is of no concern.
  22. ???? The EU has a far better chance of survival than the UK's economy. Throw your biggest trading partner down the toilet in favour of blue passports and regressive sovereignty! We want our country back! It was never lost it in the first place. The UK is the spoilt brat of Europe (it almost always go its way anyway) selfishly wanting to 'go it alone' in a selfish display of self centred bullshit expecting to get amazing trade agreements from all and sundry. These new trade agreements are all bullshit and nothing more than a drop in the ocean and trying to carry on with this charade
