SE5a sill repair sections

Yo!

Does anyone know if these are still available through a member on here at all? If not I'll have to make some. Began tackling the rotten out sill saga this morning.

Many thanks,

Structural steel bonded into shells. How many have required work?

Hi there, as the title suggests. Considering the age of our Cars and what little protection they seemed to have received during manufacture of said parts. How many of you have had to, or have had work carried out on your internal body structure? MOT failures for this reason? Considering rollover hoo...

To be fair, it has just sat on the floor for the last couple of years with no support (tsk tsk) So I'm not really surprised. Hope the doors still fit...

Body on.JPG Back where it belongs. Bit of a faff, giggle here, giggle there. Front wheels appear to be sitting quite far forward in the arches though, looks a little odd. Can't remember it looking like that. Will have a look back and see what it was like before. All holes mount up correctly though....

Dodgy pallet setup holding the back at the right height. Notice the ratchet strap attached to the boot/fence post to stop the body moving forward and killing us haha.

Well earned beer and many more to come this eve. Glad that's done so can now crack on with all the other litt...

Tank mount strap cusioning

Hello, has anyone any suggestions for replacing the cushioning for the fuel tank straps? The ones removed look like they were made of a 'lagging' type material. Has anyone used anything else instead? Closed cell foam maybe?

Any opinions greatly received.

Cheers. T

Mixture screws- making no difference!

It may be worth checking your ignition system is in good health, if you haven't already. A weak spark or intermittent fault in this area can cause all sorts of mischief. Just out of curiosity, how does the car run from transition off idle circuit? When pulling away normally, does the car stutter, th...
