    nice looking cav...I do like that grille... it's the same as the Ascona GT one isn't it? Is it specific to the CD?
  2. wow is that how it works? When i first saw the new pricing I thought "Great I may camp this year", thinking it would only cost me and the wife around £15 for the saturday, sat night, and the show day 😁... but if it's as you say it is then it's gonna cost a fair bit more...

    Not so newbie

    That's pretty much the same as mine... although yours looks much cleaner
  4. I meant to comment on this earlier on, but forgot to... well I actually thought I did comment but I guess not...I probably fluffed the posting somehow, it's not unheard of, pilot error an' all that Anyway, as far as the stand goes, great welcome, nice chat with 'Newbody' (right?), I'm useless with names, and thankyou to 'GreyDJ' (right?) for the parts, that was an unexpected bonus . And the club had the right Idea when it comes to positioning the cars, they were all facing out to the main thoroughfare, with the camping and club social area to the back, made it easy to look at the car
  5. I decided wash all the carpets, I emptied the boot of stuff, took out the carpet and it does indeed fit in the washing machine After setting it off on 'quick wash' I went back to the car to strip out the carpets in the front, I opened the door and immediately noticed the smell had gone, it was just the boot carpet after all... I dried it in the sun and re-fitted it, hopefully that has done the trick...oh and sorry to hijack your thread with tales of smelly carpets 😕

    Ahh no worries i'm sure i'll find some somewhere . . . very nice looking Cavalier though mate, I like the Calibre front bumper treatment, I did the same to one of mine a few years back, it was a mexico red hatch. It was on the MK2 stand back in Billing 2012, the year of the flood. . . I sold it soon after, the guy I sold it to is still on here I think.
  7. I will remove everything and give it a real good wash, also I will clean out everything under the carpets. I'm determined to get rid of the stink, it's probably some sort of sound deadening that's trapped the moisture and rotted.

    welcome to the site.....by any chance do you still have the original wheels? Nice looking cav by the way
  9. Mine also has a damp smell... well it stinks of mould in the boot, I'm assuming it's mould, it actually stinks a bit like what some people use for a 'recreational smoke', with added swamp gas.... not very pleasant at all, I've washed and dried all the soft funishings but the smell remains, a further 'deep clean' is needed, to be honest, the smell is so unpleasant that if I can't get rid of it I will consider selling the car. I just cant abide 'that' smell I have no idea why someone would go to the trouble of drilling drain holes in the boot floor, the previous owner of mine just removed
  10. Mines 'orient blue' with an 'Anthracite' bottom half, not sure if it came from the factory with the bottom half painted grey but It suits it I think. I have a thread on here with pictures, click this link to view L13's cabby You say you might go to Newark autojumble, are you midlands based then?
  11. Ahh this would be why I can't find a set for my cabby either , plenty of overpriced 15's out there but zero 13's ...well I have one, so I will slowly collect a set as and when they come up i guess Oh and welcome to the club Corsadad, I too have recently purchased a cabby and am slowly sorting out it's little niggles whilst using it
  12. If i still have a cav by then i definately will :)
  13. ok yeah i see your point(s) like i said I am a bit of a 'pariah' at my own club, I stay with them because,again like i said, I change my cars often, and joining a different club every time i change my car gets expensive. I did see people at their cars, but i didn't approach to chat simply because i didn't want to butt in billing overall was good, I enjoyed it . . . but i don't agree with what frisco said about it not being a recruitment drive, isn't that the point of shows? To show off the cars yes, but also to attract new members? I remember being at billing with the viva club in the
  14. hi...i'm not a paid up member, simply because i change my cars on a whim, i could be driving an astra next week. But i agree with the 'facebook is killing forums' sentiment. I belong to many car forums on the web, they go through phases of high usage and low usage. This one seems to go slow quite a bit, or it's the same core members chatting, it's the same with the VODC, of which i am a fully paid up member, although sometimes i ask myself why as the content seems to be mainly questions about dash lights on an insignia, but i have a few good friends on there. Anyway ...billing, I came to look
