Jacking points

I put a proper hydraulic jack under the main chassis rails, with a wooden pad. I do not jack on the out riggers, even though mine have been repaired.

5a rear lights wiring

Did mine recently, and like yours, it was a mess back there. At some point there must have been a towing hook, blue snaplocks in abundance with unused wiring still in place. Plus a couple of extra jumpers to temporarily 'fix' bits and bobs. By the time I had sorted it out it was far simpler and neat...

starter motor removal

I Just did mine with tubular manifolds on a 5a. I say 'I' but really ScimJim was underneath doing most of it and I was above, shining my torch in his eyes : ). Oil filter had to be removed and there was plenty of j - j - j - jiggling to pull it out from above, fwd of the manifold. Went back in a bit...

Ultra clean air zone

All town centres will become wastelands, what with restricted access, high business rates and the internet. Only coffee shops for hipsters and abandoned shop doorways for the beggars. Out of town 'Malls' full of 'designer' shops selling tat at prices nobody can afford. Its been over a month since I ...

SE5A Project - Swindon

Just a two part epoxy. Araldite. Still toying with idea of de-badging it, for the simple look. But filling the holes and painting it is holding me back currently. Put new black vinyl on the B-Posts as well, used a Evostik contact adhesive for that, but did not remove the rear windows, just pushed th...

The letters are glued back on now. The removal of the old lamps were quite traumatic, so there was the odd bit of collateral damage....

Lockheed style servo modification

I had to do this mod on mine. The brakes were momentarily sticking on, after being pressed, I believe. It was a few years ago, the car had no servo when I bought it.

Dashboard Inspirations ?

Andy, I am trying to decide of which material I am going to make the main panel out of. I was thinking of marine Ply, but there is a bend in it, so I am thinking of scoring the back to bend it and then to glass the back to hold the angle. I need to insert a small fillet next to vents also. Alloy mig...

Dashboard Inspirations ?

I am doing a similar thing, slow time, after having see Mikey's dash. I used some Halfords textured paint, but the sand colour is too bright for my tan interior. I will have to darken it a bit. I might go for a wood finish to the flat panel.

Following a trendsetter.

Leaking coolant

2 pence piece and chemical metal might get you out of a bind in the short term.

However, if one has gone then the rest will be soon to follow.

Some of them can only be accessed with the engine out.

Time to start planning?

Sorry

Seems to be an echo almost. My Nexus did not seem to want to show first post until I put the second one in... Ho hum.
