Re: Footwell heater vents

Just to add to what's gone before, I finally had a bit of time to model a 3D printed version of the footwell vent diffuser. Although I have retrieved my vents from my car, the restorers still have the actual diffuser part, so I've had to rely on photos to replicate the originals. I've produced a qui...

Re: Smiths time clock repair

Just a note with respect to the Scimitar clock. My original battery powered clock was completely broken internally and useless.Whilst the Scimitar clock appears to have the knobs at the bottom, it's just turned 180 degrees relative to the 'E'. I bought a 12v Scimitar one off Ebay and just swapped th...

Re: Can we go for a drive??

And I wasn't suggesting an E was a worse case than a modern car for breakdowns (although from my experience I would question that...), but an unnecessary trip is exactly that - unnecessary, so the car can stay in the garage. The fact that mine is in a thousand pieces and the body is on a rotisserie ...

Re: Can we go for a drive??

Then there's the issue of refueling or calling the emergency or recovery services in the event of an incident. It's just a car and there is a far bigger issue here than any emotive or mechanical reasons for exercising an E.

Re: Brake fluid bulkhead decal

Thanks Bob - I could have chopped it up a little before I sent it, to make it a closer match! Really glad the colours look good. I look forward to adding to mine just as soon as she returns from the major re-build.

Yes, as shown above. The position is a little random from the factory, but in that general area.

Re: Brake fluid bulkhead decal

Final version of label now complete. I've also tried different levels of ageing on these, since it should look more in keeping with my car. For info, printed on 100gsm photo paper and then lacquered for protection. I think a very close match for the original and way better than any reproduction that...

Re: Expansion tank bracket dirctly against bulkhead?

The strap can be easily made up using Pirelli webbing, which can be bought cheaply on ebay. Cut to required length and re-make the riveted assembly.

Re: Removing seats S2 OTS

Hi Colin - you will need to slide the seats fully forward on the adjuster. That will allow you to see and access the rear fixings from inside the car inside the seat rails. Once these are out, move the whole seat assembly towards the rear - the front of the runners are slotted and fit under a mushro...

Re: Brake fluid bulkhead decal

Not many replies here! Anyway, I've now produced a label design as attached, which is a photographic copy of original Series 2 style, rather than a modern approximation. I do still need help from someone to confirm the length and height of the label so that I can get the proportions correct. I'm gue...

Re: Footwell heater vents

Having recently joined the world of 3d printing, I would suggest using PETG. This is a fairly friendly material to print and it's tough, a bit like Nylon. My car is in bits at my restorer so I have no access to these parts. I would be able to model and print as soon as I can get hold of one. I don't...
