Re: A light Summer Project Porsche 914

Luckily the electrics are fairly original and untouched. I've removed a few bits of additional rubbish but on the whole good. Its got the original fuel injectors too which I've read can be a pain but these are fantastic, smooth tick over and power. The main issue with mine is the paint job is a 10 f...

Re: A light Summer Project Porsche 914

Im planning on keeping it a while. Getting it on the road. (Insurance quote today was £138 fully comp) there is a good side to getting old :) Brakes have seized on (pistons I think) but got it running really nicely for a air cooled and driven it a short distance. I really like them. They are marmite...

Re: 1959 Canadian Mango Microbus project

I haven't posted for a while but got a fair bit done. The front cab floor is welded in and sorted. The nearside dog leg is welded in as is the seat base panel. The bulkhead is nearly straight but needs a bit more work. I've lost my storage area so moving the bus in coming weeks to its new location. ...

Re: Recommendations please

Tony
Im really pleased with my Oxford 210. Got full range low and high and very reliable.

I bought a Clarke 150l industrial compressor recently and that's really good too. Runs all the power tools I've got and good price. Single phase version.

Re: 1959 Canadian Mango Microbus project

So the Gerson cab floor panel arrives. Nearly 3month wait but worth it. Correct early one.
Decided to prep and clamp in the floor, seat base and dog leg to see if everything was roughly in the right place. Needs getting but ok. And a bit of a boost to see the end is getting closer.

Re: Help needed please

It's looking that way Jim. I moved my other bus that way recently so probably will end up doing it myself again. If no takers I'll sort. Cheers.
