I could prototype a mould and try a refurb
the only arm I have spare is brand new  ::)

 just very small area's of surface rust/paint just starting to appear. Chappie said..'Just give them a bit of a clean up, and a coating of ????  and it will last for years'. :)
treat with a  phosphoric acid rust converter (hammerite kurust is common )
once dry , paint with stone chip or zinc paint or something to seal it .
supertrol is good to squirt into sills,chassis legs ,door skins etc
you could have it treated by a specialist to coat everything with a wax/oil protection coating ,but it is not cheap

I thought we was leaving friday  ::)
I've just re-wired my house back to good olde English RED & BLACK in readiness, 
got a Reliant Kitten for when the German's ask for the Omega back,
I still need to dig out a Chinese TV to use as my computer monitor because i'm  using a 32" conrac data modul display (German)
I'm keeping quiet about all my rothenburger plumbing kit  :-X
we've got some salad in the fridge but if the EU want to come re-posses that,they are welcome to it  ::)

Opening the windows is free!  :y

So far....  :-\  ;D

Actually scrap that as I'm sure that there will be an EU Directive along soon decreeing that windows must be fully closed when a vehicle is travelling over 15 kmh for fuel saving and air quality purposes!  ::)  ;D
Do you mean to keep all the "old man" fart smells in? :D

Exactly!  :y

Imagine following Uncle STEMO down the M62 when he's got the windows open?!  :o  ;D
I wouldn't worry about it too much, I doubt you'd be able to keep up.  :)
Oil burning Astra,. Hmmm :P
The coal dust from astra (tractor juice edition) clogs the intake on any cars behind ,slowing them to a stall  :y

Ok, so it took me till mid May to actually stop driving my lovely Carlton (which had all 3 pedals 8)) and start driving the Omega  :D
