  1. A 50/50 mix of paint/lacquer works well. As above, just use a cocktail stick or similar to apply.

    If the 981 is anything like the 986 then watch out for the window not dropping.
  3. I was with admiral/elephant/bell direct for years, but they wanted close to 500 quid for the Box. Under 200 with Aviva.
  4. My renewal letter popped through the letterbox yesterday morning from Aviva. Was thinking to myself how much has it gone up from last year, so didn't even bother opening it. Opened the darn thing this afternoon only to be somewhat shocked that its just a few pounds more expensive then last year. £20 discount if I renew online too. I need a lie down

    They've written my 986 off

    Sorry to hear about this Chris. I don't think £5000 is unreasonable at all considering the condition and maintenance of the car. Now you just have to convince your insurance company. Good luck with it all

    Adding additional miles

    Good point, I forgot about the the NCB thing

    Adding additional miles

    Do you really save that much money by buying insurance with a limited mileage, or is there some other benefit ? In my experience it makes very little difference to the price, unless your are doing say 20k miles + a year.

    Which is all I was saying really. Interesting point about the roof though

    Insurance rising!

    Not really, why pay more then you need to ? Obviously you need to check the policy carefully, but just because its more expensive doesn't necessarily mean the cover is any better.

    Wow, never thought you could even get insurance for under about £150.
