I bet you were an early advocate for the aesthetic qualities of stone cladding. :'(


Sorry about the delay in replying, I was a bit tired last night.

Indeed, my early tastes did include stone cladding. Still do actually. St. Pauls is quite nice.

However wife#1's Onyx habit got a bit out of hand and the cost of it precluded the work. That and the fact that the builder thought that my proposed crenellations might have a detrimental impact on the roof of the static caravan in which we were living. Not to mention our heads of course.

    Hey Magicmole. I saw this monstrosity and thought of you. :-*

    Maybe stone cladding for cars isn't such a bad idea.

    Sweet. It really is shiny. However that car would demand a real polisher and I don't fall into that category. Perhaps it might appeal to some of our more committed detailers?

    There is an Audi A8 that was alleged to have been made completely from silver but has now apparently been 'outed' as highly polished aluminium. It probably appealed to the same type of customer.

    Stone cladding for cars? I can remember putting a bag of cement in the front boot of a Hillman Pimp. Not the same though.

    I remember putting a gab of sad in the boot of my first car (1980 1.6L Capri) to try and correct the handling in the slightly moist conditions. Didn't do much good, crashed the bloody thing 3 times in the first 5 weeks of driving :thumbd: (Got considerably better with age though :thumb:)

    Yes the 'good old days' of 'scientific' tuning.

    Extra weight to fix poor handling. Wheels widened by welding steel bands. Coils cut to lower the car. Air cleaners removed completely. Tried the lot. Oh and a 10" steering wheel on my mini. The stalks stuck out a mile either side.

    And then they ruined it all by introducing the MOT.
