Re: Dash Cover Replacement

I bought a can of Trimfix spray-on heat resistant glue on e-bay. Will let you know Mark..... I have just stripped off the old cover (it is a replacement not original) and it is just glued at the front where it folds underneath the metal dash and wrapped and clipped at the back. I hope the glue is st...

Re: Dash Cover Replacement

Ok thanks Joe. I may tack a bit under it to give it a tad more rigidity as quite a large slot.

I have the heat resistant glue and some clamps on order.....Still could do with chatting to someone who has done this before though!

Cheers

Dash Cover Replacement

Hi, '67 FHC Apologies but I don't have access to photobox and am looking for any guidance and easily readable images for replacing the pad. Could not find a You Tube link for guidance on fitting the new pad- only the strip down. I have the moulded replacement with a thin foam backing for the cover. ...

Thanks guys,
If anyone can forward a link to a site that sells them that would be great as had no luck with my Googling.

S1 How to tighten ignition switch bezel

Hi,
S1 Ignition switch is in the centre gauge panel and is loose but the bezel nut is jammed. Is there a special spanner t remove and tighten? Tried a few sites but couldn't see anything. I'm sure Frosts used to stock them

Thx

Re: Steering wheel spokes

I used wet and dry followed by the trustee Eastwood buffing wheels- obviously went through the (anodised?) finish but looked great.

Re: Backing Board for inyterior door panels

Thanks Steve. Good idea on trimming the height when I do this and thanks for the advice on gun and staple size. For some reason the newish door panels on the car (from the States) have a 2nd angle in the top front of door corner which means that they miss the lip of the chrome trim for the last 3"+ ...

Backing Board for inyterior door panels

Hi, 1967 FHC Thinking of swapping door panel backing boards as the fit is not too great (they are replacement parts) Is the choice between 3mm MDF and hardboard? Mine needs the bend around the front of the door so not sure if MDF would be suitable. Any thoughts or better solutions? Alternative is to...

Rebuilt Washer Pump Motor

Hi, Just a quick note on the Lucas washer motor for the later plastic washer bottle types. I dismantled mine and found that one of the carbon brushes had fallen off the brass strip. Tried and failed to get a new set of brushes and the replacement motors seem to be very expensive. Anyway, I superglue...

Re: S1 Otter Switch

Many thanks for the advice. Glad I didn't waste any time on a pattern replacement. I will probably go for the modern unit. I have an engineer friend who could turn me up the brass housing. Alternatively, I just dug out an unused Kenlowe fan thermostat with the bulb and adjustment knob. Thanks again ...

S1 Otter Switch

Hi, My 1967 US Import S1.25 currently has the Otter Switch disconnected and a small plastic Kenlowe type fan connected direct from the coil. Original fan motor is missing along with the fan shroud. I don't know why the guy did not use the original green motor feed wire- I need to locate it. I have l...

Re: overwintering

I have used this on various cars stored in a stable block which was a bit damp. It has a built in humidity meter. Rather than use the drying cans they supply, I used to unzip and drop in a dehumidifier for an hour or two every week to give it a boost. https://www.autopyjama.com/permabag-engl/cars/

S1 Rear Lights

Hi, 1967 S1 FHC LHD. Two questions: 1. If I buy rear light units with uk spec orange lenses, will the wiring be plug and play from the lights to the loom? 2. If, for some reason (originality) I wanted to put my old USA red lenses back on the new (UK spec) light housing body, would they fit? Thx Eddie
