    What would members advise for restoring paintwork to showroom condition and keeping it there?
  2. Wash and Brush Up
    So, a few weeks ago after a few beers I entered a monthly car care competition! Maybe I should have written a bit more and hopefully the website in question are going to rotate my pictures for me but the main thing is the winner gets to spend £150 on the website!! Also the competition is won by...

  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Rolling two subjects together here... Anybody got a sensible (i.e. not costing arm & leg and taking forever) way of restoring.. a) the satin black finish on the door mirror mounting panel - mine is flaking off in a couple of places b) door handles - mine are bleached....but look fine when wet...

    The World Solar Challange has been run and won. The main event, featuring the solar cars, was won by a Dutch team who finished the 3,000km trip in 33 hours 17 minutes at an average speed of 92 km/h. Team Ethanol play to different rules, however, as they’re in a different class in the...

    This report came in overnight from JL Racing, who race a Saab 9-3 in Canada. We’ve been following their entire 2007 season here at TS. It’s the second year for the team and they’ve managed podium finishes several times through the year and learned a heck of a lot about developing the race...

  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Can some of you check the plate that bolts on the front wing of your 9-5. This is the one with the Vin plate fixed to it. Mine has a very high laquered finish on the drivers side but the one on the nearside is very dull. What do you think is the reason for this. Has it been missed in the...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I understand the safety of the 9-5 to be superior to the last of the 9000s. There is considerable engineering that cannot be gauged by panel thickness and body finish, but I cannot ignore the difference in door weight, panel feel and body finish in my 9000 Griffin compared to my 9-5 SE...

    Dear all, Are all your wiper arms painted as badly as mine. (just thought I'd ask before I attack mine with wet+dry + spray paint)

  14. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Looking for fresh suggestions on how to hold onto the rapidly deminishing shine on my Impala red 1996 900S. Like alot of red Saab's I've seen it is becoming faded. I have already tried McGuire's Body Scrub ( a cleanser ) topped off with Zymol ( polish ). This worked out great but the showroom...
