Take a tip from my experience from yesterday and get hold of some spare fuel pump membranes if you plan on driving any distance. (Or you can leave them at home like I did!)

If you have had a fuel pump diaphragm go on you be sure to check you don't have fuel in your oil, and if you do, change the oil right away.

Well it will be diluted and maybe not protect your engine so well.

I thought the thinner petrol would cook off pretty quickly (due to the immense heat of my motor!).

good luck with your new car. I've took a closer look at it in HO and the car looks amazing. I love the color

I saw your split at HO also, very nice. I also have a Bordeaux Red '50 sunroof, although my roof is black.

AND... I just bought a ski rack for it, and found a pair of old wooden skis that I gave a quick restore to. My car will be in a show at a ski resort in Vermont in 2 weeks (I sure hope I get my ski rack in time!!!).

Do you have bigger pictures of your ski rack????

Think that you missed the point there, look closer, that's not a Ski rack, it's a MG42 rack :shock:

Looks like a double rack to me, I have a Flammenwerfer 41 that you can borrow to put in the other side :twisted:
