Re: 60 Dove blue Panel

Managed to get the IRS arms on this weekend and the front beam. It’s now sat on its wheels. Will hopefully push it out in next few days and fit a few of the bits which have been tight to get to in garage! Then it’s onto rest of wiring, brake pipes, gearbox and motor!

Re: 60 Dove blue Panel

After much swearing trying to remove wheel studs which were wound in too far I managed to fit my new spring plates and torsion bars and reset the IRS arms. Managed to get one of the wheels set for height using a jack and looks about right! Bit of a repaint needed on the drums now though as they got ...

Re: 73 Brazilian Split - Best Place for Seals/Rubbers

I’m doing all my seals at the moment. Custom and Commercial ones seem to fit well. I’d recommend trying those.

Re: 60 Dove blue Panel

New catches arrived today. They are the newer style from C&C and are very good quality. Wrestled the glass back out and now I have a fully completed door top ready to go on complete with new seals, felts chrome bits and stainless adjuster strip / divider bar. Only the other catch to replace next... ...

Sun Visor Repair

Has anyone ever repaired a hardboard sun visor? If so what did you use and how did you do the press rivet things that hold it together.

Was thinking about doing mine in grey abs plastic to match door cards but worried it might warp a bit in the sun!

Loving the previous parcel shelf ‘repair’ - the pressings in the plate nearly match the originals :lol:

Re: 60 Dove blue Panel

Well spent a while building my door tops. Did the 1/4 light with new latch, seal and put new catch plate on. Seal fitted in door top. Job went well until I closed the window... :x:

Re: Fuel tank pin hole

There’s a moral to this sort somewhere. I get the feeling I should have checked more thoroughly before painting.

Where does pressure testing of tanks?

Fuel tank pin hole

I had my tank blasted and painted. All looked fine from a visual check. However, I thought I would put in some tank seal for good measure really just to seal the seamed join in the middle. When I put that in it has weeped from 2 small pin holes in the bottom. I have never used a tank sealer before? ...
