Hi Phil and Peter.
I do really miss the Scim scene with the knowledge and banter, not the same with GTM.
Pete - is the Sabre behaving?

Re: Chassis Paint

I used epoxy on the suspension for the Sabre
Mainly ok but where it has chipped has rusted quickly
If anything I think the epoxy was too hard so ended up as brittle

Re: Chassis Paint

On the - prepare rusty stuff - I used for a long time a 'rust converter' that seemed to give a very good surface for other surface or topcoat paint.
A milky liquid when applied but dried to a black surface
Is it still around?

Re: My new SST project

My SS1 always ran lumpy at tickover
There is some sort of valve thing? lets extra air in or something?
I never bothered to deal with that though
