    Snaketorque magazine

    The latest issue of Snaketorque has now gone to print so you should have it early December along with next years calendar. Sorry it's took so long to do but I had no articles despite almost begging on here for some!

    I've had some e-mails and messages asking politely when the next magazine was due out which is fine but what really annoyed me were the messages where members were demanding to know why they hadn't received the magazine they expected, if each of those people had written an article instead of a complaint I'd have enough articles for the whole of next years magazines!!!

    Bottom line is, I have NO ARTICLES AT ALL now, so unless someone starts writing to me, say goodbye to the club magazine................

    Well said Tony.....

    If just half the people who complained contributed to the club, then they would have nothing to complain about.

    Feel free to harass me to write an atrical..... that will really give people something to bitch about. Lol

    Some people really are unbelievable

    Keep up the good work though mate.

    I could fill the magazine with technical stuff and helpful tips for AK builds etc but it may be deemed as advertising

    All articles are useful. I wouldn't worry about advertising - you could always sign off "anonymous"....

    BTW Anthony Ive set you a mail message...

    I bet you could do a fab build story over several weeks and it would be from a different perspective which would be interesting.

    Oh and sorry Tony I will get off my backside and get that article sorted that I promised

    Thanks for putting it all together Tony, looking forward to the magazine arriving early Dec.

    Chimeara, anything that gives sound advice on aspects of car building is something I would appreciate.

    Sorry Tone, I have been meaning to write those articles I mentioned to you, on the Polycarbonate wind jammer and manifold heat shield I fitted on my AK, assuming you still think members would be interested of course, but I have been completely bogged down with increasing problems with various carers, health and house maintenance issues regarding my very elderly mother and on top of that, rad leaking on cobra again!, and house decorating duties too. I will try and write them over Xmas Period.

    If you are going to do that Anthony, can you start with “tips on how to loosen that sodding awkward nut on the bottom of the splined steering column shaft and then best way of moving steering column forwards “, please

    Hi Tone

    I've managed to start getting some more progress recently so should have an article for the next one! Might even have a couple as I've given up MIG welding my headers and switched to TIG. Could make for a separate interesting article on an amateur bumbling welders view of the pros and cons of each for kitcar building?

    As far as I know Mike, one of our Hants/Sussex members, submitted two monthly write-ups that were not published.
