• All, You may notice that the site looks a bit different. This evening I performed a major software update which improves some things and has the opposite effect on some others. The old software version will no longer be supported so it was not really a choice. One down-side is that the new release breaks most of the Add-Ins and style sheets which will have to be reinstalled (and repurchased in many cases). The biggest loss is that the feature to receive all new posts by email is no longer supported. I will likely implement another option which will let users subscribe to either a daily or weekly digest. You will notice enhanced support for attachments, ability to bookmark posts and a more mobile friendly experience. If you do discover something that is not working as it should, please let me know. I did have to switch to some new anti-spam components and am keeping fingers crossed that they are as effective as the old ones without blocking legitimate users. Keeping the balance is kind of like trying to design a car that both drives and swims! Thanks, Mike

power coat wheels

Ditto to previous, although the first time you fit the wheels the powder
coating comes off where the bowl of the wheel nut rubs on the wheel.

Does anyone tighten Amphi Wheels to an exact torque setting ?, and what
should it be ? I was recently looking very closely at about 30 Amphicar
wheels that I have here (sad I know!) to choose the best 5 to be powder
coated, some have oval shaped holes where I guess they have come loose, and
one has small cracks around the wheel stud holes where it looks like it was
overtightened by an animal with an air gun.(On one of my cars the wheel
studs had also been stretched so much you needed a wrench to turn the wheel

ps - Also, when fitting new tyres, as discussed previously we know we have
to use tubes, but does anyone try to seal around the valve stem - maybe with
silicon ? - to stop water getting in, or just leave it as Amphicar intended
