    Not my choice Brian merely an observation.

    Just an observation on my part too but could be why they have been discontinued, that and the size limitation of the panel.

    I wonder if you could use 1 or 2 car hatchback struts to pop the panel up. All you'd have to do then is take a bolt out and it pops up. Most would maybe be too powerfull so you'd need one for a small door or the ones that just open the rear glass would be weaker. Might look into it myself thinking about it :)

    Excellent - I'll try to find it. Just seems an obvious use for one of the early Oysters that can't be upgraded.

    We saw Jasper a couple of years ago at the Lowery. Old, bald but he had the whole audience in stitches, a wonderful evening.

    The home brew tracker worked a treat. The only problem has been that we never kept a van long enough to fit the damn thing. Its sitting in the attic awaiting fixing.
