Engine, preserving for long term storage?

My old man always recommended putting a few drops of paraffin in the bores prior to laying an engine up long term - winding it over by hand ensures the walls get a good enough coating... in the absence of paraffin I'm sure a good thick grade oil (20W-50 would do). Then just wind it over by hand ever...

Hello from the Midlands!

Thank you Roger, Jim, Pete, mn757, Phil and Colin Been out in the garage tonight just getting to know the car a bit better - nothing better than bringing up very tired paintwork with some elbow grease and a bottle of TCut!...I still feel a repaint or vinyl wrap (easy to wrap panels!) is on the cards...

Hello from the Midlands!

Wanted - SS1 Hard Top

Good evening - I'm looking for a hard top for my SS1 (1987) - unsure if there are any subtle differences depending on year?

Not too fussed on colour as I'll repaint anyway - just so long as glass is in good nick and theres no structural damage.

Thanks! :D

Good evening all, I've not long joined this group and wanted to introduce myself. I have recently bought the blue SS1 that was previously stripped down and rebuilt in the post by Kwackers, bought by Stoddy who ran the NC500 and then sold to Danny....
