Years ago I got the friendly guys in the next door unit at work to do the same. They were yacht sail makers though with huge industrial machines.
Didn’t charge me a penny :)
Since there are affordable specialists doing this now though, I’d probably use them too
Custom Polished Lucas A127 70A Alternator for Rover V8 applications, show cars, hotrods etc.
I had plans to use with my 4.6 P6 build but have decided I need more amps so my hard work is up for sale. Can be used with V belt or Serpentine front ends with your choice of pulley, I can include a...
The time has come to pass on my vitesse wheels. I refurbished these 7 or 8 years ago, fully polishing the lips and etch primer/gloss black on the rest of the wheels, inside and out.
They come with centre caps, original nuts and flush fit valves (adapter and 4x new seals included)...
I like the ceramic brake grease over copper, Mintex do an affordable one called Ceratec, I’ve not looked back since buying it.
If you have tall enough stands my preference is the flat ledge either side of the crossmember
It is fun setting up again, trying to only keep the best quality things that you really need..
I got a lot of that storage a bargain prices or free, the shallower drawer Bisleys are so useful for milling and lathe bits!
Well working alone today I got the shell into the new space, off the...
Just about ready to get the car in and back on the rotisserie!
I've been rediscovering all the aftermarket goodies I'd bought for the project whilst sorting through boxes. That's got me really fired up to get cracking!
So no fuel leaks underneath anywhere?
Main Suspect, Pump
It's gotta be either pump (mechanical or electrical issue), leak, or a blockage I would have thought.
Did you leave the tank fairly full? 15 months is probably long enough to turn to varnish..
It's the original tank with an additional...
Not being able to wait is an understatement!
The way the roof has previously been built means a lot of ventilation on the low side of the pitch as it’s essentially open, water runs off the far edge of the left hand container.
I’ve been thinking about a solar vent fan too..
The guys left behind...
A little workshop progress. Rear wall and windows in, floor 90% complete, door next and then I'm moving tools and Rover in!
Each door will be hung on three of these, captive hinge design I made from modified key clamp fittings and 6" straight trailer hinges
I hope to furnish you all with...
Adrian at the risk of repeating what's been said, are you absolutely sure the rubbers are there? The side on photo doesn't look quite right to me.
Here's a comparison with a borrowed pic of Ron's car
Thanks. Yeah it's not ideal, I have my tools in a uninsulated container at the moment and the bed of my mill has developed a layer of rust annoyingly- nothing that can't be fixed of course but not nice on precision surfaces.
The pitched roof has plenty of ventilation but insulation and thin...
Thanks Mr H
The day after the trailer swap I helped my landlord load his 40s Plymouth Deluxe, and we trailered it to a bodyshop in Essex- can't remember their name right now..but they had a bubble top impala in primer and some other interesting cars.
So, onto the worksop build. Originally I...
Where do I start?..It's been rather a long time since I made any kind of update here.
House and workshop move has really halted progress.
I'm nearly there with my new workshop but I'll set the scene just for entertainment purposes.
Currently all my tools and parts of the car which are being...
