    Compressed air brake bleeder

    I don't think it will matter too much Dave, as you'll only be using it in short bursts the air in the tank should be enough, allowing the compressor to recharge between blasts.

    The P6 Arrival

    You've got to love a proper mini. I've only ever owned one, and it never made it to the road (mate gave it to me with serious tin worm and shattered clutch), but I've worked on a few for other mates. Rather have a P6 though :lol: I suspect it's my age, and comfort requirement.

    Poppy the P6

    Take the tow bar off, they're ugly and the electrics are now an MOT test point, if you don't need it get rid. Love the electric windows, I used all the mechanisms and switch from an early 216 Vitesse, put the switches in the front spreaker grill. Any plans to electrify the rear windows ? In...

    interior wood

    I fitted a set of those to a car for somebody a little while back and they were excellent, easy to fit (some trimming to length required) and a nice finish, certainly nicer than the formica, but not too "in your face"

    The View From The Windscreen

    I've done a fair bit of work in the past on online image creation, and pdf creation systems, creating pdf's from scratch on the fly, and where people can apply their own graphic and text over existing pre-created templates etc. that sort of thing. This means I should be able to knock up a...

    Sobering Story

    Yes, certainly wouldn't trust any means of lifting that doesn't have a physical locking mechanism. I've only ever had one car fall off a jack, and it did it in rather stately way, just slowly rolling the jack over and landing on the sill. Luckily I was not working under it, but to be fair I was...

    The View From The Windscreen

    We need more exposure (so to speak !) Mind you, quite a few P6 owners I know have never touched a computer :lol:

    You could just fit a battery isolator, not the ideal fix, but it would at least allow you to use the car without having to charge it every day. Plus if you do keep letting the battery go very flat it will kill it pretty quickly.

    Painting a set of shelves - dust nibs driving me MAD.

    I think as long as the paint is well dry, then the wet and dry will work, but getting the gloss back up might be the problem, could try some car wax.

    Engine upgrade

    Surely though the relief valve limits the maximum pressure ? Isn't the idea that the high volume means it gets closer to the relief valve pressure at lower rpm, where normally it would drop right down ? Or should I keep my mouth shut :lol:

    Power Cut

    I used to install alarms many years back, so tend to oversize and keep on top of batteries etc. Ours was fine, it was the other 3 in the street that went off at midnight when it came back on. Luckily 2 got turned off pretty quickly, but one did the mandatory 20min ring until it stopped, even...

    1971 Rover P6 2000 Automatic Ebay.

    Non standard colour has to knock the value, and I've never been a fan of wing mirrors. Looking closer at the pictures, looks like they've sprayed over the door catches on the D post, not a good job, plus you've got to wonder what's hiding under the paint. You could always sell the plate to...

    Brake Warning Lamp Circuit

    The fact that you've got corrosion on those connections suggests that could be the problem.

    Re: Pilkies new project!! 1954 MG TF1500 You might be as well to just use the epoxymastic without anything else. a) it should be up to the job, and b) any buyer will be able to see the quality of the chassis without it being hidden under a layer of stonechip. Spray some waxoil inside and your...

    MGTF1500resto.Finished.Won best in show.FOR SALE.NOW SOLD

    Re: Pilkies new project!! 1954 MG TF1500 Wow, that has come up well, not much rust there at all, and what there is looks like surface. Shouldn't take much blasting to get that cleaned up. Might be worth while even if you paint it by hand rather than powder coat, I guess it'll depend on the...

    Power Cut

    Well it's like the end of the world here. Currently 22:42 and the power has been off since about 14:00 :cry: Wouldn't be so bad, but being easter weekend all the kids are home from uni, and of course without pc's, web or tv they think they're going to die. I have a mains invertor and a fully...

    My '72 P6 V8 is back in use on UK roads and once again wearing its silver on black 'K' plates!

    Re: The optimist Not suprising considering how much they were charging for advertising, I remember I used to pay something like £1k a year to be in it.

    2000 oil pipe O rings

    If you can't source them from a rover parts place, then if you measure the grooves etc you should be able to get them from a specialist supplier, just google o rings, I had trouble sourcing one for my trolley jack and ended up buying about 50 (minimum order) from a specialist.

    "Did Mods own/drive cars ?"

    I love watching Jules Hollands show, you get some really good new stuff on there, and of course they're all doing it live. If you're into soul music there are some really good new bands doing a good job of old fashioned soul. Raphael Saadiq, Aloe Blacc, Ben l'oncle Soul, all worth a listen.
