Bargain bonnet

Well it seems that dear Ruth can't find the shift or CAPS lock keys, so simple arithmetic to put the decimal point in the right place is clearly a step too far! surprised you hadn't noticed the spolling mistake as well ? :-) I didn't try to read it. When I am optically assaulted like that I skip it...

Ians GTC rebuild. Now she runs, and stops.

Having sorted the brakes out and with thoughts of an MOT test getting closer, problems arose setting up the carb along with a badly fitting rotor arm. Its running very rich but I cannot cure the fault. Rich running through the range is caused by the float level being too high. Either it is maladjus...

WEBER 38 DGAS 3C vs 38 DGAS no 3C

They are both 'tamper proof ready' designs. The mixture screw is shrouded so that it can be sealed with a plug after setting up. The DGMS is a factory ' bodge ' to suit the strange British fetish for wanting to cock up the cold running. :mrgreen: To set the fast idle requires a hammer and that is no...

Am I inhibited ?

Just to enlarge on that, the inhibitor / reverse switch is a tubular device with a plug that goes onto it vertically. It has four connections going to it from a sub loom that side of the chassis. You can reach up and pull the plug off for testing. Getting it back on is a bit more awkward but as it i...

Advice for a respray SE5a

One important point about prep. Microblisters are a real pain on fibreglass. They are caused by two factors, the first is tiny imperfections in the surface which hold moisture. The second is the factory surfacer which is one big sponge. To eradicate microblisters, it is essential to eradicate all tr...

Advice for a respray SE5a

Water base dries by evaporation and takes a while. Airflow is used to dry it rather than absolute heat as solvent base would be. My engine bay took 40 mins or so to flash properly, solvent would be 10-15 minutes.

Advice for a respray SE5a

That's all very good information. From what you say it is possible to use air drying type products over the right sort of base but,sadly for me and others brought up on the old cellulose type products,I have to acknowledge that the end result is rather soft and not that durable. I suppose solvent b...

Advice for a respray SE5a

From what the OP says it seems like he wants to do the work himself? Not a problem in the slightest. It shouldn't be approached lightly or with limited knowledge because it is a great deal of hard, dusty labour and frought with potential for a nice crop of blisters the first time that the sun comes...

Advice for a respray SE5a

Why re-spray? Because it is going to achieve a nice durable finish? I have started on that route, and stopped as I have discovered that the car has several different types of paint on it, so unless I go back to the gel coat, I have already come across reaction between these different paints while r...

Replacement carpets

You will get far lower cost with little extra work by buying off the roll. Commercial carpet sets are all wrongly cut, but anyone who complains is told that nobody else has ever had a problem. Make of that what you will.
