Garage shelving

Trevor don`t feel guilty about overloading them, even with the "Approved" weight, evenly distributed, they do tend to rock.
Not enough "span to support them.
You should see the racking I have just finished assembling, you will all be envious LOL.
Be warned Peter :w

You snowed in yet Trevor?.

looked easy on the instructions but there is a knack which I learned fairly late on
What sort of racking is it Peter?.

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

I have a spare boot lid, originally white.
Probably came from FYM 308C
Gotta admit the prep and undercoating looks good. :D

SE6b numbers

The LAST GTE SE6B off the production line was sent Princess Anne :wink:
I doubt if anyone will ever know if it was chassis number 5865 because 5865 was paint code 99, non standard inc metalic.
I can`t find a listing for Royal Blue.

Any recommendations on paint for suspension parts

POR 15 is very easily removed with Cellulose thinners and brake fluid, hammershite also don`t like brake fluid. Most of my refurbished parts go to a local Stove Enamelling company, let them do the hard work, and I just remove the over covering IF a part needs a machined surface. Top and bottom wishb...

Vertical Link SE5, SE6A, SE6B

Stuart there are at least Four different types of Vert links. They take different sized stub axles for a start, which is what CR was pointing out. So therefore the tapered hole is different. Some also have a different size of inner bearing/grease seal shoulder. They will all have the same lower trun...

Valve guide help/advice please.

K Liners are SH*TE, I personally would not touch them, they are an interference fit in a reamed hole and because they are a split type, rather than a solid tube, they can slip out, as you have found. IF your going to spend money on re furbishing valve guides it`s easier/cheaper (in most cases) safer...

SE6b numbers

So I must assume the 6a were built with Essex to fulfil "old" orders taken before the change of engine bay to accept the 2.8 that Ford forced upon Reliant?.
OR did the 6a`s use up Reliant 6a bodyshells AND engines?.
