BFP with Bolts

Hey all,

Well I am having problems with bolts at the moment because some idiot who owned my car prior to me has put bolts on there with nuts on the rear that I cant reach and have already been threaded.

Is there anything I can use to get the bas-tards off... Cant use an oxy because its under the panels of an EH and they are made of glass.... and cant get anything from the inside like bolt cutters because there aint enough room...

The sheds / gallery

Hi,

I am sorting out the mess in the gallery/sheds at the moment.
Looks like it is going well as a few people are uploading to it again.

If you want to have your own album email me, you will need a few interesting photos to do this.
If you only have say three or less I will put them into a sub album under "Our cars" (which is a mess and I am cleaning up this week). If your car is in "Our cars" and you want to show it better and comment below it email me your wishes.
Also if you have a CD of photos or twoand are hanging out to show it, lets publish it.

leaking windows

hello all. ive got a 74 hj that leaks through the windows. does anyone know how to safely take off those metal rims that cover the edges of the front and rear windscreen? i managed to get the rims to the lower half of the front off but now the water that leaks from the top cant escape through the bottom (heh hmmm.) . They are on real tight and im afraid to get a screwdriver to pry it off.

HR special wagon rear door interior light switches

I have a HR special wagon and i have noticed the rear doors have interior light switches on them. From looking at the wiring and comparing the front and rear switches it appears the rear light switches have been installed by a previous owner. Did the HR special come with rear door switches or is this an aftermarket addition a previous owner installed?

Interior conversion and Stiff door handles

Does anyone know of a different interior (mainly seats) that will either bolt in or can be put in a vk with little modifications made to them? Has anyone done this before?
I would need a mod plate for different seats, right?

I have very stiff door handles, so i took a look at them they appear to be a little corroded on the inside of the door. Has this happened to anyone before i was just gonna lube them up with some wd-40 or some grease. Does anyone have any advice?
