Nice looking coupe 4a project here

Yes,that does look like a viable project rather than junk that's stood in the rain for the last 25 years.

Still much to do,so not for the faint hearted.

TYRES AGAIN

Sorry to bring tyre subject up again but just been let down with supply of 195 75 14 92H NANKANG tyres. I got 2 a month or so ago and have them fitted as they seemed good price and good name and thought would get another 2 to replace the next two tyres when front end rebuild completed. The time has...

Peter,doesn't seem to get near the one from close to you that sold for about £10k about a year ago?

Standard tyre sizes

To modernise and go wider and retain a similar rolling radius then it would be 185/70 to replace 165/80... and with the suspension in good condition should be no rubbing,but 185/80 would be wrong. Love those replica Minilites with knock on centre locks,the best retro look alloys IMO. I had some on a...

Jay Leno not Leon and they get repeated on satellite tv regularly
Sorry about the typo,my excuse is the predictive text because it also wanted to put an "i" in Frazer!

Didn't realise it was on TV at all,I've never spotted it.

Jay Leno’s Garage

Just to inform anyone who's not aware of the above,it's a US tv series that is available only via YouTube. Apparently Jay owns over 150 cars and the series features not only his own ones but others of interest whose owners are invited on the programme. It's not just US cars,he has plenty of regard f...

Oaksey's S2000

Fraid so Craig. There was literally one build slot left (which I’d have loved so I could’ve had the last one made) but the lack of a regular employed meant I couldn’t get the £12k finance incentive. That’d be a good start Ron but I reckon you’ll be looking at more than £10k for that Didn't know you...

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

From the back of my mind I think the van version of the Herald was called the Courier...but I may be wrong!

Advice for a respray SE5a

Did my Coupe with water based paint and found it very forgiving and much easier to apply than cellulose or twin pack - you still need to put lacquer on top though and I have used Max Meyer which I also find to be relatively easy to use. My previous attempts with twin pack and cellulose were shall w...

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 ba...

Advice for a respray SE5a

From what the OP says it seems like he wants to do the work himself? I agree with what's said above about correct preparation and using the best modern materials,however these materials do not lend themselves to home diy use.Modern two pack materials demand careful use to avoid damaging your own hea...

Looking for advice

The PA is a pre war open two seater and will be loved by fanatics of that sort of car but I would say definitely not a day to day useable proposition. The YB is an early 50s four door saloon,more useable than a PA,but would demand a lot of attention to keep on the road and would be very slow by mode...
