Re: Museum Se5a - Revival!

Dunno if it works over the 'net but I'm sending you positive vibes. :D hang in there. I guess it's hard when it's your daily driver, I can use the bike when the car isn't working.

Re: Museum Se5a - Revival!

Thanks, I'll have another go tomorrow. I'm ok with it all, don't mind the tinkering and I learn new stuff all the time. It would just be nice to do one of my planned jobs as opposed to leaping from one failure to the next.

Re: Museum Se5a - Revival!

I thought I would post this here as it feels slightly like progress.......... :| Well, after a frustrating day in the garage I think I've finally discovered that my fuel gauge is possibly lying to me and over-reading. :oops: :roll: To cut a long story short, there was more than enough fuel indicated...

Re: Museum Se5a - Revival!

Thanks tony, lots of cracks etc but if you stand far enough back they all go away :D I had horrible feeling someone would say that, both trunnions lost grease from the Bottom. :cry: Something else to add to the list. I seem to remember seeing trunnion repair kits available, are they from the usual s...

Re: Museum Se5a - Revival!

Hi all, Well I survived my time at the hands of the Royal Navy (which was ok really but don't tell them that :wink: ) and have finally managed to do a bit more tinkering. I've fitted the lovely shiny coolant pipes that I got from Dave dcw7095, topped her back up and then successfully sprayed the bay...

Re: Museum Se5a - Revival!

I worked with the navy on Harriers and i'll leave that there for fear of causing offence :wink:

I can definitely think of things I'd rather be doing, this jointery lark sucks.

Re: Museum Se5a - Revival!

Thanks Tony, I thought it may be the valve leaking. I have bought the (expensive!!!!) repair kit so i'll give that a go, at least it will be as it was intended.

Re: Museum Se5a - Revival!

A tiny bit of progress at last. I made a new door card for the drivers side and all I can say is Aldridge trimming will be getting some of my hard earned as it looks pants. :roll: I definitely don't excel at upholstery. I took the drivers side window mechanism and motor out, cleaned it all up and re...

Re: Things people have said about your Scimitar

Everytime the next door neighbour sees the car she says "That really is a stunning/beautiful car you know" or words to that effect. Shame my Mrs doesn't feel the same way :cry: :D

Polishing Chrome with Aluminium foil and cola?

Hi all, I was just Googling and found this, it was also recommended on another site about cleaning bicycle chrome. http://www.instructables.com/id/Chrome-Polishing,-Mythbusters-Style/ I haven't given it a go yet (too cold again :cry: ) but I will definately be trying it on the Dunlop rims. Apologies...
