  1. Are you sure you want an MHD?
  2. I'm not sure they'd be unsafe. However, the ride on an already stiff car is liable to have been degraded, and the extra weight, and therefore inertial resistance, won't do performance or handling any favours. Does the owner still have the original wheels to throw into the deal? We're lucky here, there are som many used Smarts to choose from its easy to walk past vehicles with mods like this and find another. No quite so easy your side of the pond. Good luck.
  3. Not exactly rare here, but not terribly common either. As time goes by though they do become more uncommon. Scratch black and numeric blue seem to be quite popular among buyers.
  4. I've got a crappy head cold. Smart cleaned, levels checked, rolled into the garage so he can stat warm while I stay warm in the house. There's a storm forecast for tomorrow so I'm staying i. the house under my duvet.
  5. I've often wondered - is the finish on those labels painted or a wrap?
  6. I did contemplate mowing my lawns Tolsen, but the ground is still wet down here in Englandland.
  7. Painted my grille. Silver trid, silver panels, all a bit much silver so a black grill breaks jt up and lofts the cars "smile". The rear wheels would benefit from a refurb so I may get all 4 done in black as well.
  8. Been very naughty. Mrs chopper has had surgery on her liver so I've pinched her car this last 8 days. However, it's almost out of fuel so it's time to put it back and use the Smart, which has been nestling safe and warm jn the garage away from the frost.
  9. Shame you guys aren't this side of the pond. No shortage of used motors, although diesels are less common. I've thought about acquiring a roadster or Brabus engine to rebuild and have on standby for straight-swap duties should it ever be needed.
  10. Find the end at the bottom, carefully pry off an end, then gently pull the whole thing off. New one just pushes on. Once fitted, check the door drop glass on each side ks properly adjusted on the strips, as if the window closes an extra mm kr two that can damage the door welt.
  11. Gave mine a clean cos it was caked in road salt. Why do I have to suffer because the rest of the numbties don't drive to the conditions?
  12. Fair play to them. Unlike the rest of the world they aren't wasting g time maki g excuses, and they're simply getting non with it.
  13. I'm only 57 miles in so far this year, but a nice 80 miler planned for Wednesday.
  14. Did the drivers door handle cable. While the inner trim panel was off I gave it a scrub with fabric cleaner. Cleaned and reprofed the hood. Gave the car a quick wash and leather. Rain X'd the screen. Collapsed in a heap.
  15. Drove mine to headquarters this morning because I'm on a training day...parked next to a lovely W453, black tridion with satin grey panels.
