Re: YHK 631S GTE resto

It could be the wrong wheelbox I suppose, though it was the correct part number I ordered according to this trusty forum...But either way, it hasnt made a jot of difference either way so presuming that isnt the problem.

Re: YHK 631S GTE resto

Pretty sure I didnt bend anything as I undid it all - As I say I replaced the drivers wheelbox a few weeks ago, and made no difference, and then the cable just in case! lol.

It was supplied by GW's according to the bill, so presume its correct - new wheelboxes and rack at the same time, though I replaced them anyway.

Re: YHK 631S GTE resto

That looks fantastic! One suggestion - you mentioned that the guttering was a pain, did you seal it? The rivets which hold it on fit into holes in the body and are a favourite leak point, I run a bead of clear silicone sealant along the gutter to ensure that water can't get in. ...Roger Yeah, I ran...

I use a good carbon mask (B&Q sell a good one, or did), wear a white suit, and have a bi...

Re: YHK 631S GTE resto

Just more of the same really.....unmasking, wheels on etc. Fitted a new fuel cap seal, and have bootlock seal on the way. Rear lights are ready to be wired up now (Trailer ones, hence the big light holes!) Painted up the door handles & fitted them, also the middlebridge drop glass weatherstrips. Gut...
