Andrew's green Cubic

<p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US" style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">I got my new Cubic yesterday and I love it.<o:p></o:p></span></p>

council meeting where someone had applied to use it as a taxi.<o:p></o:p></span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;">There is overspray in all the wheelarches so I would guess it’s been resprayed recently. Who knows why, accident damage maybe? I think with cars of this age / rarity
you have to base your judgment on the current condition, the panel gaps are
spot-on and I can’t find any evidence of accident repairs apart from the
respray which looks like an excellent job to me.</span></p><p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;">It’s an auto, but I think someone’s used a CVT dash panel to convert to MPH (a couple </span><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;">of people suggested this on my other thread), because when you turn off the overdrive, a ‘CVT’ light comes on.</span></p><p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">Plans </span><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">are to sort out some wheels, and fit some lamps in those round places in the front bumper. Not too sure about lowering as I intend to use all 7 seats
regularly. I think the tracking needs doing too. It would be nice to have one
of those double din sat nav radio things with a reversing camera too.</span></p><p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;">Does anyone know how to stop the mirrors automatically folding in when I lock the car? I fear it might wear out the motors. There is a little switch near the steering column wich says AUTO in a picture of a mirror, but this has no effect.</span></p>
