Re: New Left Window Regulator Binding.

You just have to examine exactly what is catching/binding with what, and do a bit of careful bending to get the offending bits out of each other's path. When I was trying to get my (orginal) mechanisms to work within the (new) doors, I concluded that it's a mechanism that isn't particularly stiff (s...

Re: Sovy Failure

Having read all the tales of split outlets on these bottles, I always feel slight anxiety every time I open the bonnet. I got a new set from SNGB as they had metal inserts and my existing ones didn't - so I hoped they'd be more durable. But judging by David's post it doesn't look like that helps. Da...

Re: I have seriously improved my E-Type!

Clever fix for that irritating problem Carsten. :yellow: FWIW, my solution was to use one of those white nylon square plug nuts that hold mini headlamps in place. And a self tapping panhead screw + washer. It's designed for square holes and is split at the back so it expands when the screw goes in, ...

Re: Rear Suspension, ride height

And to add yet another wrinkle, what about tyre diameter? Mine are SP Sports which I believe are slightly bigger than Michelins or Pirellis...and isn't EE50 currently running on low profile 205s?

Geoff, I have found that the best way to deal with the matter of parts prices is to forget what I paid as quickly as possible, and above all not to keep any kind of running total of the cost of the restoration....

Re: Rear Suspension, ride height

And Mark, no I didn't get any specs with the springs, just the statement (delivered with some considerable conviction) that they would do the job. Which they do.

Re: Rear Suspension, ride height

I got just under 8" (7 15/16) to bottom of tie plate. No lip as it's the Rob Beere alloy plate with a tow hole (for towing other less-reliable makes of car when they break down you understand). https://i.postimg.cc/Y24pgR3F/IMG-20190505-184139-1.jpg Geoff, that mark on the front wing is merely a scr...

Re: Rear Suspension, ride height

Mark, I bought a new set of springs from CMC. They told me they started having them made specially after being unable to source acceptable ones anywhere. I haven't measured the ride height on my car but visually I think it's perfect. (I don't go for the low-slung look favoured by some, partly becaus...

Re: Headlamp / sugar scoop chrome mouldings

A great number of parts I have bought from the main suppliers are neither cheap, nor cheep, nor crap, nor made in China; and to assert that 95% are just isn't fair or justified.

Re: Problems fitting courtesy light switches

No wonder you are having problems fitting the switch Phil. It doesn't go anywhere near the hinge....it sits at the top of the A post, near the base of the windscreen. It sticks out sideways and bears on a small oblong plate fixed to the inside of the door.

Re: Engine back...

On the bubble wrap point, I'd just repeat what the guys at TT (now Concours Refinishing) told me - don't get it anywhere near your car. Their theory was that the bubbles contain some kind of corrosive gas that leaches out. I haven't researched it, but from bitter experience they assured me it will d...
