Re: Garage Flooring

Geoff it is currently minus rear wheels up on special stands ratchet strapped on all four corners to the floor ready to run it through all the gears. I shall probably just leave it like that and install a large projector screen. :bigrin:

Re: Garage Flooring

Yes, I had an epoxy paint and it was treacherous when wet to the point where I felt it was life threatening. I had an epoxy floor and found the same David . That was a while ago and it has lasted really well, however when I re do it I will probably go for a “non slip” version which would effectivel...

Re: E Type equals what other classic

I have neither a Frogeye or a Corvette Darren but then again I do find the whole Corvette thing a bit too manly and butch for my trips to the hairdressers in an OTS. :wink:

Re: This does not feel right

I thought as much Paul. I recognised the car because I’d actually saved pictures of the seats to copy because I really liked how they had been trimmed. :lol:
Mine’s gunmetal but will have a red interior.

Re: This does not feel right

Hi Paul, I had a feeling that was your car. The reason I asked about the car in the picture is Woodham Mortimer are advertising in writing that they were responsible for restoring the car yet don’t seem to feel responsible for any warranty work. Anyway at least you are getting it sorted. I like the ...

Re: Pictures of your stolen E-type for a news story in Classic Cars magazine

I also think the often voiced “probably in Eastern Europe now” is an easy opt out for those investigating such thefts. Personally I think with a ready E bay market for E type parts, the answer is much closer to home. A quick coat of primer and you’ll get £3k for a bonnet, 1k for a couple of doors, £...

Re: checking lsd works

I trust you did a full Risk Assessment of the car park before attempting anything like that Darren?
I,m just dissapointed there wasn't a McDonald's in the background and a few Corsas. :bigrin:

Other than that the video was "Sick and Wicked!"


Sensible Simon.

Re: Advice on rustproofing treatment please?

After some research I used Dynax S50 and have been very pleased with it, especially the fact that unlike Waxoyl it is more resistant to higher temperatures while still achieving good penetration. I’ve used Waxoyl before and the Dynax is no where near as messy and seems to stay in place on vertical s...

Re: Where to buy a "Bonnet Hardware Kit"

For what it’s worth, the spacer washers I removed which looked original were the same as Andrew’s (Abowie) at 2.5mm hence re using these rather than the repro ones. Bonnet washers are one thing but I have to say with regard to the tolerances and material spec of safety critical items such as brakes,...
