Re: Pilkington windscreen aerial wiring

Hi Paul, Dampmansteve, a member on here had one of these fitted so might be worth asking him. His had the heated front screen as well so if I remember , there was some confusion about the various connections. When I spoke to Pilkington 12 months ago, their screen aerials weren't DAB compatible but t...

Re: E Type Parts UK

Edited in light of the post and link below.

Although I've bought parts from them and been happy with the service I'm not sure I can condone the selling of vehicle identities without the presence of an actual car to restore.

Re: C2270 3.8 Locating Cylinder Head Stud problems ?

Same experience regarding the poor quality threads from SNG Barratts so bought a set from Rob Beere. You would need to ask him if he will sell you just one but to be honest if the threads are not particularly good on the Barratts ones I'd probably send them back and buy a full set from Rob Beere.

Re: Quick release steering wheel

Hi Steve, I have another spare Jaguar splined top shaft that will be machined to accept the Racetech splined shaft. We use a company for work who are aerospace certified welders so I will give that to them. The new aluminium "actuator" sleeve has been machined to fit perfectly over the actuator coll...

Re: Wheel arch liners

If you have no joy finding liners, what about a clear vinyl stone chip protection film? 3m do one that is 14mil ( about 0.3mm) thick. Some sort of protection is probably a good idea. Speaking to Andy at Hutsons who fitted an alloy bonnet to a customer’s car, outward dings from stones hitting the und...

Re: Series 2 Door water deflectors.

Would the clear vinyl paint stone chip protection film be too permanent or is that still too thin?
3M do one that is 14mil or 0.35mm thick.

Re: Series 2 Door water deflectors.

Never seen them so assume they weren’t. Don’t forget to fit the plastic inside the door shell for best results. Cheers Angus, I intend to fit the plastic sheet as mentioned above but am concerned about water collecting as in the diagram below. Perhaps I'm over thinking this and worrying about a pro...

Re: Series 2 Door water deflectors.

Yes David those are the ones. I know the Series 1 has them but wondered if the Series 2 has just the rear one or both were deleted. Because of the shape of the edge of the hole in the door I was worried that plastic on its own would allow water to collect on the lower edge of the hole in the valley ...

Series 2 Door water deflectors.

Do the Series 2 swb doors have the water deflector metal panels in the two lower apertures of the door casing like the Series 1? These are the ones behind the door card not the little drainage ones that are riveted underneath the door. On a Series 2 the revised position of the door handle occupies t...

You can see the new upper splined shaft which has a wide key spline to locate the wheel correctly: https://i.postimg.cc/Ls19B7W9/20190524-115426.jpg Hi David, or indeed anyone else with the CMC / Barratts boss.
