    A Wiki is like an online encyclopedia. An entry in that wiki can be written by anyone, and edited by anyone.

    We have created some wiki pages on various subjects. For example z3cade has written an article on how to remove the side sills for rust proofing. We have published this in the following wiki entry.

    http://zroadster.org/wiki/bmw-z3/bmw-z3-sill-removal-and-protection/

    It allows the key information or process to be documented in a better online form than a Forum thread.

    Wookey is a village and civil parish 2 miles (3.2 km) west of Wells, on the River Axe in the Mendip district of Somerset, England. Wookey is often confused with its sister village Wookey Hole which is perhaps best known today for the Wookey Hole Caves. The parish includes the village of Henton and the nearby hamlets of Yarley and Bleadney where the River Axe, travels the length of the village. There used to be a port at Bleadney on the river in the 8th century which allowed goods to be brought to within 3 miles (5 km) of Wells :ymapplause: :ymapplause: :ymapplause: =)) =)) =))

    I've been down to Wells 3 times to work - not had a chance to visit the Hole, but did visit the Cathedral

    Was even a member of the Wookey Hole Working Men's Club for a night :beer
