Recommendation for body stopper.

My Coupe is currently finished in 2-pack primer and I will be preparing it for the top coats over the next week or so. The overall finish is very good but there are a few very small imperfections that I'd like to correct and I'd appreciate advice on the best stopper/filler to do this, please. I thin...

Good News :hurrah:
Just received a message from Vic, he not well, but still around. :clap:
Excellent! :D

I'm sorry he's still unwell but I'm sure we all wish him a very quick recovery. Many of us feed on his skill and enthusiasm to help with our rebuilds.

3 litre badge

Is this the one you want? The exact measurements are:
Width - 56.56mm / 2.2"
Height - 24.66mm / 0.97"
Pin spacing - 36.07mm / 1.42"
Pin length - 15mm / 0.59"

I'll be interested to see the end result. :)

Wanted: Original Lucas panel light switch - V6 Coupe/SE5

It works perfectly now so that's a good result. A real fiddle to get back together so I'll buy a replacement next time! :wink: If it is making contact now, you could use it to drive a relay and take the load off it. Good suggestion, Andy. However, I've added so many relays to the loom I'm not sure I...

Wanted: Original Lucas panel light switch - V6 Coupe/SE5

I am finishing the reqiring of my Coupe and have just rebuilt the console. When reassembling it I found that the panel light switch is intermittent so I bought a "genuine" Lucas replacement. The trouble is the new Indian-made switches just don't exactly match the originals in shape or colour. Does a...

Gell Coat repairs

Flowcoat should sort the problem. Loads on Google about it and I'm sure some of the paint experts on here have used it and will be able to give more in-depth advice. :)

Coupe chassis repairs

I am looking at fitting se5 front suspension. Is it the later suspension or the wider SE5 track you're considering? My Coupe already had the later suspension but I have converted the chassis to the wider SE5 front track to match the 4HA axle I've fitted. I've never done a project thread as I've bee...

Coupe chassis repairs

If Brian can't help it will be worth speaking to Iain Daniels (01530 515300).
He built a new chassis for me so will have the specs and dimensions.

Unlikely discovery

A friend of mine bought one many years ago at a time when the rest of us were riding around on Vespas and BSA Bantams. I'm not sure what model it was but I recall it had an Anglia-style rear window and he had to kick-start it by standing in the engine compartment. He worked out that if he removed th...

To confuse matters even more, the engine capacity of the car shown is given as 2,994 on the V5 ..... an Essex V6 methinks. :w

Misdeclaring on the V112 saves the cost of an MOT, of course, and there's only the small concern of a fine of up to £1,000 and the possibility of invalid insurance to be worried about! :hand:
