:lol: :lol: :lol:

This that takes me back a bit to the early 1980s when I got my first car seat covers so it seems nothing has changed then.
I remember them being rather bland in colour and elasticated but could I hell get them to fit properly.
Even when they were on they would not cover the whole seat.
They were the only ones I ever bought.

I don't use car seat covers now but really should do because the idea is to protect the seats from dirt and wear and tear.
This post is a reminder why I never bothered and why I may never do so again so thanks for the reminder.

And the loft.
I made my own 9 footer and it worked great.
Wasn't the meter called an SWR meter for tuning purposes.

Correct. I believe it worked by getting the aerial to match an exact length or something like that :lol:

Yes and I miss those days. It's what we did before computers and that stupid crapbook or whatever they call it.
