Front bumper and glass fibre moulding SE6B

Just as an aside...........if one is going to do a repair and gets a spare body section, it can be easier to take a mould off it, push mould over body once shattered bits removed and just glass into the mould from inside. I did this on front 1/4. An agricultural company making fibreglass drinking tr...

1982 GTC project gumtree

Hi ard126K. Thanks the hood catch photo......mine is different. It is the slotted type where a tongue on the hood catch fits in the rear of the slot while the pressed steel hook goes into the front of the slot and over-centres to pull the tongue fully in. Probably similar in only having fore and aft...

Stuttering / Cutting out, petrol starvation

Pommy perhaps a quick summary of EXACTLY what you have done so far. Your above sounds as if the carb is suffering petrol starve. (however seem to remember though you changed carb at some stage? but possibly more than one fault on car.) Sounds like carb petrol inlet valve getting stuck closed or part...

ard126k Reference the two fixings for the hood front rail over-centre latch. Where they screw through the front screen top are the holes in the body elongated to allow adjustment from side to side? My hood gets caught by the door window frame top front corner.....I have thought of looking at lowerin...

INFRARED THERMOMETER (LASER)

gtcse8.....you probably lucky. A previous thread had someone buy a cheapie and when at work and the recalibration team came round they checked his out of interest.....it was way, way out. I would like to be within +/- 1.5 deg. A cheapie may be quite alright for general indications but it is good to ...

INFRARED THERMOMETER (LASER)

Due to the bewildering number of these items, can anyone recommend a particular one and from where. 1. I would like it to be reasonably accurate (+/- 1.5 deg C ?) 2. Don't fully understand distance/spot ratio though think it refers to further you are away the bigger the area that gets measured (ther...

GTC Tonneau cover

NO. The top cap is only put on when car parked. The Tonneau is in place when driving to keep out draft and small amounts of rain, with the vertical part either up or down depending on the temperature. When the car is parked the top cap is put on in case of rain, so the flap would cover the mesh to p...

GTC Tonneau cover

Time is fast approaching for the visit to the GTC Tonneau man on the 4th Thursday of Jan. One small snippet is that the mesh window on my car was that size because Guy just happened to have one off- cut that size left over at the time. I repeat however that you can't see the edges in the rear view ...

Do you have any pics of the filling process when fibreglass cracks were ground out and tissue was applied, and any details of how many layers were required?........like round the front engine bay corners etc?

Scimitar Axle Rebuild and LSD Upgrade

The Wingate Dumper Truck used the same axle and there used to be a detailed technical manual somewhere. Very important to remember that the axle tubes/ends are unlikely to be EXACTLY the same length, do each side seperatly, so that when setting up shaft end float it is NOT just a case of exactly the...
