Did someone in the Club buy the car???
I believe it has gone to a well known prominent member.
I would be interested if the prominent member gets it up and running and then unfortunately decides to sell it on!

Horror stories

Beware of buying a former "fully maintained" lease car too! The lease companies only carry out the bare minimum of work necessary! My Company lease car had a major service last year when according to the schedule, the cam belt should have been changed. A month later the old frayed cam belt snapped, ...

I've now ordered a headlamp bowl kit from the web, to replace all of the corroded bits on the driver's side!

Headlight question?....

You can buy plastic "nests" which are obviously much less corrosion-prone. (not totally, as the chrome rings are still chromed steel, but at least it's a step in the right direction :) ) That sounds a good bet! The drivers side one was okay with just a little light corrosion at the bottom which I p...

Headlight question?....

Headlamp now painted and re assembled...But when I took the old sealed beam unit out on the passenger side, the mounting behind fell to pieces in a cloud of rust! The bowl behind is pretty corroded too! Looks like I need some more parts!! :? 20170918_172827.jpg 20170918_172642.jpg 20170918_172633.jpg

Love the blue leather interior! 8) 8)
In the interests of proper disclosure (!), it is actually leather-look vinyl.
Still nice though!...The original leather seats were only leather facings only!

Headlight question?....

Thanks for the parts Andy! I've fitted the one headlight to the drivers side and the other lamp I cooked in the oven at lunch time with my pasty! Once warmed up I separated the glass from the bowl and I've repainted the reflector with " chrome" style paint! I just need to re mastic the parts back to...

Possibly, I will need to have a look in my box of bits. I know I do have a genuine NOS headlight, bowl and loom section if you wanted new. Other than that I reckon I will have something used. I have the Hypoid oil in stock too.
I will try to get over to you this weekend if you're about!

When you get your new shell, you will have to cut off the parking lamp that goes to the clear window and replace it with the type that comes with the new bowl.
You haven't got a lamp like this one have you...just to tide me over?
