    Hi everyone, Thanks for adding me to the group. I bought a 1993 900 classic turbo convertible last year which has been an absolute dream to drive. I've already used this site a number of times to get some advice on various little niggles with the car and it is interesting to read about other...
  2. Wash and Brush Up
    So the roofs looking tied and it needs a good wash? Worse still you've got some leaking in the main cabin or maybe in the boot? then it's probably time to clean and re-proof the hood, but what's the best way of doing it? Surprisingly there wasn't much on YouTube or elsewhere until I found this...
  3. Wash and Brush Up

I want to clean it before I seal it. Is it worth using Fabsil to protect it afterwards? I saw a thread where someone...

    I recently put a small filing cabinet on the folded down back seat. As I as raising the roof it became jammed on top of the cabinet. Since then the mechanism timing seems to be out. 1) The small tonneau catches will not lock down and have now sheared off. 2) When the large tonneau cover...
