Church key and holder

Anyone have a P shaped church key and holder lying about that they could part with? Prefer original if possible but decent repro would do the job................
Cheers

Adam at NLAVW has reproduced many of these parts and the quality is very good.

Re: So42 fiberglass water tank repair?

There are many YouTube vids on grp repair. Don't use polyester resin for this repair - use epoxy instead as it gives far better adhesion and is much better in contact with water. You will need to grind back the existing grp to feather the edges of the crack then use some West System resin and filler...

Re: 67 Headlight & wiper switches

67 splits were almost all 12V. The switches are the same except, as Graham says, most 67s were fitted with two speed wiper switches. The knobs are different - flat rubber rather than plastic acorns. 6V switches work with 12v systems.

It's on the road now Jason - but can't go anywhere! Just the wheels to paint and interior to finish - curtains, coolbox unit, spice rack to go in. Fortunately this SO42 came with everything intact - except the bodywork!

Re: Bumpers

You can do this Phil but be careful as drilling the holes in the right places can be a tad challenging! I've just built up a US spec rear bumper using new parts from Schofields. The over-riders and towel rails (WW) are spot on for fit and quality. I used the HD slash cut rear bumper which is the rig...

Re: Fishing in the fuel tank

Well I tried the endoscope which gave me a nice view of the bottom of the tank but couldn't see the fuel can nozzle which had migrated to the spout end of the tank - the invisible end. I did see some weird dark shapes on the tank bottom though. So bit the bullet this morning and pulled the engine an...

Have ordered a borehole camera and drained the tank. Fishing should start on Friday - wish me luck!

Re: Fishing in the fuel tank

You can get pretty cheap inspection camera devices that connect to a smartphone. I think you'll never grab it unless you have a camera to guide you. You'll have to drain the tank, but that'll be easier than removing the engine + tank. Thanks Jim - not sure how one of those cheap cameras would react...

Re: Fishing in the fuel tank

This would be completely hit and miss and would genuinely need you to go fishing with the chances of catching being limited but it was the only thing I could think of. Perhaps combined with above it may work?! https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/cht605/?da=1&TC=GS-040210605&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIv5bQsr6t6A...
