Sold

Sad day for me. After 16 years of fun, the Stylus has been sold. Bought by a Frenchman from the Pyrenees. Ludovic already has a blue stylus bought 6 years ago from Nottingham. I'm sure it has gone to a good home. It is ironic that in getting it ready for sale the Stylus has never looked better.........

Re: Mike B Stylus for sale on pistonheads

Heading back to Sydney. A good few hours flight longer to KL than Perth. My wife was born in Malaysia and still has family. Her cousins husband still races sports cars in Malaysia and in Europe. His name sounds like Ummum.(sp) I could get the car to Oz if I could convince Tanya its worth more there....

Re: Mike B Stylus for sale on pistonheads

Yes, I'm quite sad to let it go. Tanya, my wife, says I can take it to Australia..........if I shred it 1st. Might be able to talk her around if I can argue that it's worth more out there.

Value?

As much as it will break my heart it looks like I'm not going to be able to take the Stylus back home to Australia. It's been over 16yrs and been a lot of fun but I'm going to have to move it on. So what is the market like at the moment? I'm sure its not as good as I would like. Evenso, can anyone h...

Re: Stylus Register

Hi Glynn, use epoxy instead. No smell, goes off quicker and doesn't shrink and pull shapes in the panel. Down side is it is a little more expensive and must be mixed more accurately. Mike
