Well not much more for me to add other than the nominations for best crew member of the year are..................................

Only joking as all the crew have their individual skills and as Steve has said already we compliment each other well and not much beats us collectively and long may it continue, only sorry that a few members go away with their jobs not completed, normally they can be carried over to the following Nano meet which is usually a month away but of course next one now will be March 2020 and we will publish the dates asap.

We have had great support this year from crew, campers, owners,management of the Four Ashes and the weather and we will try and order the same in 2020, one thing for sure the politicians will still be arguing over Brexit well into next year, saw a great quote from Margaret Thatcher recently which said that politicians are like baby's nappies, they need changing regularly and for the same reasons.

I would like to sign off by saying a massive thank you to everyone who has attended one or more of our meets in 2019. whether crew, regular visitors or new owners, many people travel long distances to attend and that is always appreciated, can I give a special mention to Mick who arranges the website hosting for us and sorts out any technical issues we may suffer from time to time :comp: it has been a pleasure organising the meets this year and I will be speaking to the owner of the Four Ashes to sound him out for using this venue next year and will post back what he says on here.

See you all in 2020 and in the meantime have a great Xmas and New Year when the time comes :thumb: :union:

After 2 years being not able to come to a Nano, I finally made it and thank you to Artic and Scott for finally releasing the jammed rear seat – then had a real struggle to get it back in position. On Artic's advice I got a cheap broom handle from Wilko today for £1.50 ready to cut to length to get those pesky seat squab lock bars locked. Started with a carpet clean up finding a few more coins along the way then tackled the seat. I removed the rags behind the seat back and managed this time with the help of a neighbour to get locked both ends, then also the seat itself, all locked tight. Best thing was the broom handle was not needed, but maybe another time of course!

The other problem of the rear blind is ongoing, as it will go up but not down. I'll try adjusting the screws mentioned to move it over a little.
However, off to Cornwall tomorrow for a few days, so it will have to wait.
Good to chat and see some beautiful other cars. Weather not too bad either!
Until hopefully next year.
Ray

Glad you got it sorted Ray , does the seat fold aswell or are you not risking it now it's clipped in both sides ?

Regarding the blind it may need a strip down as I think the mechanisms may have moved, but you could try a bit of furniture polish on the top runner were the two arms go has been known to work!

And might I say I had a lovely dinner in the Four Ashes Pub about 3pm. Friendly staff, excellent piping hot food served in quick time and a pint of course. And I noticed on the menu that they do an all day breakfast as well which some weren't sure if they did or not. So lets here it for the Four Ashes Pub and try and give them some custom at the next meetings as I think they deserve it. Look forward to next year. The next outing for me is The Classic Car Show at the NEC next month.
Hi Mark. Nice to meet you and have a chat. Glad that you cleared up a puzzle for us about the all day breakfast. Will give them a try next year. Can not remember, but was it you who had done a ‘job’ on the bonnet? Gold Rover75?

So, Steve thanks to ............. You.... for all the hard work you put into the meets along with all the other Nano meet members that keep these meets going
I could not agree with you more Dave. Steve never seems to stop doing something. His generosity is boundless as are many others including yourself.If it was not for people like all the nano crew, and people like yourself, there would be no Meets. So thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Can not wait for next year to arrive.

No Scott, not tried folding again yet! Returned from Cornwall Friday evening in deadfall weather (won't help the sills). Had a problem though trying to park in Truro. Could not engage reverse! All gears had been getting difficult to get. Eventually after going round the car park the wrong way – not funny, I got it back to Redruth where we were staying. There is still a Rover garage but they are virtually in Lands End, too far to risk getting to. Found a specialist works in Falmouth (DT Motors) who could do anything until a week later! However, managed to get to them Weds morning for a check. Very helpful. But car would not reverse again. They tried checking the fluid which was totally black but reckoned the master cylinder was the problem. I had to leave it with them. Nearby was a Enterprise car hire place, so got a Fiesta from them.
Ringing DT the next morning it had not been touched, so had to arrange a hire car extension. Finally late afternoon they rang and it was done.
Flew over to Falmouth from Camborne handed car hire back which cost £110 and then walked to DT to collect car. They do claim to fit quality parts and said they had fitted a LUK cylinder, but a plastic one with a neoprene pipe as he said metal ones are not made. (Obviously untrue). I was not in the position to say or do anything about it.
That cost £150 for the part, some DOT4 fluid, £49 labour plus VAT came to £327 (plus the car hire £110) so Cornwall was all an expensive visit.
However, it works if a bit squeaky. Came back Friday night and tried the Cruise control which Jules last year got going for me only to find it no longer works! They of course have disturbed the switch and I know the master is in a pig of a place to get to, but it's more annoyance.
Hopefully the replacement master will continue to work for a good few miles. Fingers crossed!
Ray
