Re: Decoding Triplex glass numbers ?

Sandblasting. This is mine on my '53 OTS. http://i.imgur.com/yQs0LuR.jpg Tadek I’ve noticed that Pilkington reproductions, albeit excellent, do not have the dots. Have someone tried to print those dots on the glass? I’m wondering about solutions to do it. My original glasses are really deterioriated

Re: Decoding Triplex glass numbers ?

I think it's LSG - Laminated, Sheet Glass Again, M12 at the bottom is a manufacturer code. The WG mark is interesting. On Triplex glass, there was a WF designation, meaning Front Windshield qulity, used since '65. Tadek I found with some surprise that my car has received a new windshield in its form...

Re: Decoding Triplex glass numbers ?

Here is a more definitive answer: AS1 means glass is with at least 70% transmission and can be used anywhere on a vehicle (by default used on the windshield), AS2 is used for side glass. TRIPLEX brand and trademark- the XXX logo. The logo was inscribed in a circle made of 4 arches for laminated glas...

Steve, you are a genius!

I never thought the pivots of the LH and RH Inner Pad Carrler Assemblies are at different angles - I thought they were a mirror image!..

IRS rear brakes assembly - what am I doing wrong???

I was wondering if anyone can help me - I must have assembled something wrong and cannot quite figure out what - it _is_ embarrassing... Anyway, I cannot align the handbrake levers - the left lever seems to be pointing downwards too much. Please take a lok at the photos: http://i.imgur.com/WCbigtr.j...

BAT Jaguar '62

There seems to be a rather original S1 3.8 on BaT at the moment: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1963-jaguar-xke-coupe/?utm_source=dailymail&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=2019-03-14 I was wondering if we could discuss what's not original on the car.

Andrew, You need, if I recall correctly: RED/GREEN YELLOW/GREEN BLUE/GREEN WHITE/GREEN BROWN/GREEN GREEN in 5.75 AMP CABLE - 9/0.30 gauge However, the BLUE/GREEN & BROWN/GREEN was not available in this gauge, so you have to go for the thicker ones.. And even the gauge 9 is thicker than the old cable...

Then it must depend on the car, as the ones I measured were almost identical (within 0.1mm)

Re: Cant rail chrome retaining clips

Paul,

I think there were at least 2 on each of them, so total 8.
You should have the holes from these clip's rivets visible.

Paul, To be honest, afer years mine just looked like a pretty shapeless piece of rubber: http://i.imgur.com/9hMFnWH.jpg In case you do not see it, it's just by the 3 grommets. But, if you plan to rewire with cloth braided wires, then the wires Autosparks provides are thicker and no grommet will fit....

Many thanks David,

I am probably a PITA, but I was more referring to the fact that the TRIPLEX logo has changed to a thicker font in '62 or '63...

I will need a glass for my windscreen, I do you know if they still provide unmarked glass?

Re: Pilkington Classic require our assistance

David,


These logos are _not_ correct.

The correct logos look different.

Could you possibly contact me with someone at Pilkington regarding the logos?
I would gladly help as I did make an extensive research some time ago on these logos..

They are are untrue by about 0.1mm, which I think is quite a bit. It results in much higher values at edge of the rotor (about 0.6mm) Is thi...
