Not sure on the staying Sunday night, to be honest I might have to point you in the direction of the organisers to see what their feelings are on that. Usually it comes down to the insurance. Most show organisers don't like to have people on their site when their public liability insurance has expir...

From the info I've gathered so far all the tubular chassis Portafolds are pre 1967, how far back I'm still not too sure but 1960 is possible.

Has your new project got a chassis number? and what have you done with your original Portafold? Have you kept it to use while the other is being worked on?

I suppose I should say why I started this thread.

A couple of years ago I had a Portafold fly past me on the A35 near Dorchester, heading west towards Bridport/Honiton, being towed by a red Triumph Herald or Vitesse.

and I'm still waiting to find out who it was...

Steve, I wouldn't go chasing the chap your talking about (Lionel Abbs) he's in a home and way beyond any talk of Portafolds I'm afraid. If you PM me or email me at with your full chassis number I might be able to give you more than just your year of manufacture. Plus I'll add...

Steve, Many apologies for the site being down. I'll be sending apologies to all the members tonight, hopefully, if I get enough time. We had to switch off the board because we didn't have the time to maintain it (basically remove the spam and porn entries). I should have the time now to keep up the ...

As our walls (below the shelf line) have been painted in pastel yellow bathroom and kitchen paint I've got some yellow duct/duck/gaffa tape. It's only 2" wide but there might be wider available, and as I haven't actually got round to fitting it yet I can't tell you if it's any good but I would say i...

Just put our portafold up for the first time after painting the inside and found that even though we used good quality mould resistant paint, for the next couple of hours I will be cleaning mould off the inside! At least we have room in our garage at last to store it this coming winter, hope that wi...

It's my next job I'm afraid, to get the shoes off mine and take them down to one of our many motor factors to find out what they're from. Hopefully they'll be able to give me a few part numbers and the names of other vehicles/trailers/caravans that also use them.
