Re: Oh no! Engine frame damage, could it be repaired?

Good for you Nick. In my experience you continue to enjoy the fruits of a job done well long after you have forgotten how much it cost....
I'd love to whizz up to see you and the car in the next few weeks if you are around...never got up real close to an S3. Will PM you.

Re: ’nother problem - rear hatch bracket

Malc, I believe yours is the same as mine, i.e. the later hinged prop.....here's mine as it was originally before dismantling: https://i.postimg.cc/PJR9cfvZ/IMAG0872.jpg But that rear section of bodywork below the hatch opening was completely rotten so was replaced...and the hatch support didn't lin...

And you won't know how it's going to work until you give the door the correct weight and momentum by fitting lock, winder, glass etc.

Re: Door seal

I assume your seals are the softer ones (which I believe all the usuals now supply, certainly SNG and M&CW do) made by COH Baines?
You should also give them time to compress with the doors shut. Mine got much easier after a few weeks.

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?

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.

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.
