Is a 5A improved over a 5 ?

Get the best quality in your budget. Both versions are great and will offer tons of fun, enjoyment, wow factor etc. It's only a few geeks on this website who know the difference :D :D myself included. To everyone else they're the same, so it's a question of what you want, really, rather than what yo...

71 GTE SE5A my rolling restoration

Great stuff. Strip the engine and look to see what's damaged. I 've stripped and rebuilt the Essex lots. It's a great engine and very easy to work on. I'm also doing an engine conversion on my 5a. Its straight forward but still a fair amount of work. If i was you i would repair / keep the essex in s...

And I had a result. I've swapped a spare rear 4HA axle with the fabricator in return for a set of bespoke SS open headers :hurrah: :hurrah:

Can anyone recommend bulkhead sound proofing and or fire retardant. I'm going to build up the bulk head with fibreglass for strength and to seal it. Then I want to add sound proofing (and do i bother with fire retardant) Do i then encapsulate that in more fibreglass ? Or do I go to a breakers and lo...

So this is the modified polo mechanism. WP_20190114_09_26_40_Pro.jpg WP_20190114_09_27_23_Pro.jpg As you can see. The black line (if it was straight) shows the high point across the wiper mounts. However the central motor ball is above that that line. So In reality its fouling on the centre scuttle ...

Hi Spegru. I had tried new wheel boxes, cable, arms of different lengths, and different but admittedly second handmotors but no joy. And I suppose I wanted to itchthis scratch although I didn't envisage removing the secondary bulkhead but i like the clean look. :?

Despite loads of effort the wipers have always been rubbish. Memories of pelting rain and the single wiper lifting at 100mph whilst trying to negotiate the anglesey circuit still haunt me. So i'm going with a mk1 golf unit. I have one of those and the wipers are fantastic. Smooth, solid right pace ....

I'm cleaning up the chassis. Only doing the front end first, before engine goes back in. It was disgusting. 40 years of 20W50 all over it with grit and dust hard packed. But boy did it preserve the chassis well. :D :D :D This is the only rust and its surface rust. WP_20181223_14_55_26_Pro.jpg WP_201...
