    Re: Forswearing all but a Fulvia

    Re: installing seat belts in a Series 1 Fulvia

    I blame myself. When ordering Wesco harnesses, you can choose the length of the fixed end. I did not choose wisely.

    When my tire shop put my 145 Cinturato on my car, they noted that the previous tires had tubes. We decided to try it without tubes and then if we had any problems, we would get them. I've noticed...
