124 Spider - New seats in at last!

So that's what was is in the box!Old seat rails... 8mm hole here.
...fit perfectly onto the new seats :-)Essential tool for tightening the front bolts.
I found the best way to put the seats in was - hang the front allen (hexagon) bolts through their correct holes in the seat rails with the seats at the back end of their travel and line them up over the captive nuts before loosely attaching.  Then push the seats forward on the rails to get the allen bolts in at the back. These ones are easy enough to get pretty tight using a normal allen key.
The front ones are hard to access though and I used the above 'multi-angled' key with a ball type end.

Looking good!

Arrived today in a bl**dy great big box from Germany :-)

Too dark to open so sitting in the back of the landrover tonight.
Looking forward to fitting them in the morning so fingers crossed for a dry day!

Something a bit different. Rolex 16800. Not for Sale, again!

Here's something a bit different. I put it away for a while, forget about it, think of selling it, wear it for a week and practically have to wrench it off again!!
It's addictive...
This is the last of the matte dial subs and being a late 80's number, it's the last of the last!
The 16800 is known as a transitional model (what is it with me and transitional models?!:-)) as it bridges the gap between the old 1680, plastic crystal (sexy-plexi), matte dial etc and the proper crystal, non-tritium lume, white gold surrounds to come.
Nice crema markers and bezel dot.
Doesn't miss a beat and utterly reliable.
Yes Rolex are mass produced, perceived to be worn by attention seekers and those that should know better, but...due to the constant revisions and minor detail changes it's still possible to find something with a bit of uniqueness.

So, not for sale, again, well for now anyway :-)
Actually what about a nice 1680 sub...
