WTB a UK based car

I am looking for Karmann Ghia and I have found a car near Milton Keynes (near London). I don't know the seller. The car looks good for a 65+ car. He was ready to trade the car tomorrow but in case I want it I have to place a deposit via paypal 500£ in order to save the car for me. I am not really su...

Re: UPDATE ON B PILLAR RATTLE

Re: UPDATE ON B PILLAR RATTLE

Why the hell they don't use the method of 3 with some noise recorders to find the exact area of the noise? At least the noise on my car is always coming from the same heigh.

Re: UPDATE ON B PILLAR RATTLE

If it's from the inside of the b pillar metal sheets why they don't just open a hole and add some material like polyurethane in order to avoid the metal sheets touching each other?

Re: UPDATE ON B PILLAR RATTLE

Apparently I also have the same tic tic noise. Some days I can hear it only on the passenger's b pillar and some days only on drives. Of course there are times you can hear it on both sides.. The weird is that whenever I hear the noise from whatever side the temperature is always above 30* C and non...
