Re: 64 OTS Rear Bumper Overrider

Hi Tim, I believe the 'grip nut' is like a nut enclosed by a clip that sits in a square hole in the overrider. I bought some for my 65, but found that the overriders that I replaced them with had welded on nuts. The only advantage I can see is that it might enable the nut to sit at a different angle...

A post trimming

Hi, When looking at the A post through the windscreen at the front, there is a U channel in the A post from top to bottom. The windscreen rubber mounts on the outside one and the front part of the cant rail curves around the inner one. On my FHC, you can see the bottom of this U section between the ...

Re: Cant rail chrome retaining clips

Thank you all for your input. That’s a bit steep Andrew, considering that they are a relitivly simple shape. Yves, that is exactly what I have and the clip does show; perhaps the bonnet chromes are slightly smaller section than the originals. On the plus side, I had thought the clips were spring ste...

Cant rail chrome retaining clips

Hi All, I am trimming the cant rails on my FHC. I have covered them with vinyl and used bonnet chrome's as the chrome beading. My question is about the retaining clips that are pop riveted to the back of the rail, presumably in an attempt to hold on the chrome. I have only one clip at the front; sho...

Re: Heated front windscreen wiring

Thank you Steve and John, I really appreciate your efforts.

Now I just need to decide where best to mount a switch without it looking too obvious.

Re: Heated front windscreen wiring

Hi John,

I'm ok with electrics, but not so much with electronics. Is there a particular size or type I should use?

Thanks,

Re: Heated front windscreen wiring

Nice idea, but I am not quite sure how I would wire that without the power tracking to both circuits?

Re: Heated front windscreen wiring

Hi Steve and Julian, Yes I think Steve is right too. I think I will have more control if I wire them separately. I don’t however think wiring them off the same switch would have been a problem. I was going to wire them both separately off a relay and simply use the switch to well.. switch it on. Tha...

Heated front windscreen wiring

I have just fitted my new heated front windscreen to my FHC; not easy. The connections are at each side of the screen, exactly where the brackets are for the dash top. This definitely could do with a re-design. Anyway; I was thinking of wiring it up to the heated rear window circuit, so that they ar...

Re: Headliner trim around interior light.

Hi Simon,

I have done as you suggested; I also picked the stitching out from the headlining around the tube and cut a little excess off.
The light now fits in fine.

Thanks for your help.

Headliner trim around interior light.

Hi, I am just fitting the headliner 'skirts' where the interior light fits and I am wondering how best to do this. The rubber tube with the cant rail 'skirts' sewn into it, overlaps where the interior light fits, so the tube from both sides overlaps inside the recess for the light. Should these be c...

Re: Where to get the indicator bolts ?

Hi Carsten, The lens is held on separately to the casting. There are three set screws holding on the indicator light casting. I am not near my notes, but I think they are 3/16" x 32 (10x32) UNF. I just bought stainless steel ones on line, I think they were 1" (25mm) long. The lens is held on by two ...

Re: Diaphragm panels (front) bolts ? Front lamp bulbs...

Hi Carsten,

I put the diaphragm's in first, then the headlight bowels then the lights.

Yes; fitting the chrome ring is interesting! Mine were Phillips screws and I used a long magnetic screwdriver.
I think I put the lower screw in first to hold the ring and then the others. It is no fun.

Hi, The interior of my 65 car was far from original when I bought it. I am now in the process of retrimming it and I thought I would do it the hard way by buying materials instead of a trim kit. :doh: Can I ask a few questions: Is the back of the upstand behind the seats trimmed on both sides?
