Re: Mystery Car

Looking at the windscreen shape and in particular the cut of the door, rear wheel arch positioning etc it looks very much like a Marcos fastback gullwing. https://historicmarcosregister.com/fastback/gullwing-fastback/ Whats interesting is the wheel base and rear wings. It's almost as if someone took...

Re: Mystery Car

Re: Coil / starting issues

Drain the fuel tank, and get some new fuel. I had the same issue on my 5A back in March. I put it away in November over winter and the fuel went off. Chased my self around in circles trying to find an ignition fault that wasn't there. These modern fuels in a flat shallow fuel tank (large liquid surf...

Re: Main chassis rails thick enough to tap for M8 ish?

Hi Gav, Chassis is definitely too thin to drill and tap, you'd barely get 1 full turn of thread in it. Rivet nuts are a good solution as is knocking up a bracket. You dont need CAD or a laser cutter, just a hacksaw and a file. Otherwise you could look to find some other suitable mountings already in...

Re: roof trusses

I lifted all my detached double garage roof trusses into place on my own. They were about 6m L x 2m high. First I notched out a couple of lengths of 4 x 2 at the truss spacing to "lock" the next truss to the first once in place so I could work alone without help. I lifted each truss into the inside ...

Re: My freezer doesn't work!

Classic case of leaving the door ajar or the door seal is damaged.

Freezers & fridges don't magically make water, they condense and freeze whats in the air.

Turn it off, defrost it, dry it out, clean and check door closes and seals properly then switch back on.
