    Seat belt dilemma

    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 Jim

    RWT363K - now BRV3500H

    It wouldn’t usually, heat tends to enrich. But there’s so many variables and it appears heat related, thought it was an easy thing to start with and test. Jim

    I think you should try blanking off/disconnecting that warm air collector Jim

    SD1 Vitesse wheels black and polished

    Hi all, 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)...

    Jacking front wheels up for pad change

    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 Jim

    ZF 4HP22 step by step.

    Good news! Still yet to test my setup but final spec will be 4.8 with edelbrock 500, strong ZF hybrid and 3.54 Jag LSD, should be a good combination by my calculations

    My mean green hornet

    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...

    My mean green hornet

    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! Jim

    Sparky's winter/spring/summer/autumn work

    Although annoying, it's always a good feeling to find definite, visible problems like that. Hope that does the trick!

    Sparky's winter/spring/summer/autumn work

    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...

    My mean green hornet

    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...

    Front Spring Boing

    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 Jim

    My mean green hornet

    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...

    My mean green hornet

    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...

    My mean green hornet

    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...
