Re: Welding

As far as gas go, another vote for hobby weld. Its just like getting camping gas. More initially as you rent the bottle but cheaper re-fills as and when you need.

Re: Manual cable pull engine bay extinguisher

Re: Cant get the engine to go in

When you have the engine in as far as it will go have you tried turning it over by hand to get the input shaft splines lined up with the clutch plate? You will know if you need to clearance the bell housing by the fact that the flywheel will leave score marks on it when you are trying to turn it ove...

Re: 1967 blue and white splitscreen project

I use collinite 476s on my van. If you use it do a small area at a time and keep buffing it off.

Re: Johnson Bros Double door panel.
