Re: re-chroming of bumpers

You guys on the other side of the Pond are lucky. Less and less good chrome shops in the USA. EPA and the price of real estate doing a big number on old shops. If anybody knows of a reputable shop in this country, I would be much oblige . Thanks !

Re: Surprising

Educate me here gentlemen. Why would you even undertake a restoration on this poor old girl ? Parts car? But for over $40000 ? Seems to me, that if this hulk was gifted to someone, would in not take more in capital, and time, and labor, then this car will ever be worth ? Well best wishes, and lots o...

Re: Fuel filter (Glass Bowl)

Hi Frank: I use an extra disposable in-line filter in the back also. The clear plastic Fram G-3 works great. Easy to keep an eye on things, and usually available for less then $3.00

Re: Museum of Modern Art Series 1 Jaguar

FYI: The Jag is in the MOMA warehouse in Astoria, as are other artifacts that are often rotated in and out of display from the midtown location. In fact, anyone can make arrangements to visit the Jag, when they are in NYC. Any other statement of mis-facts you wish to share ??

Re: Fuel Hose C38514 Replacement

Of course I'm in the US, but over here, any car parts store, speed shop, or auto supply in general should carry a selection of hoses. Bring it into one.....I'm sure they can match it.. Nothing exotic.

Re: Dayton wire wheels S3 roadster

"So I never actually used it on a leaking tire " !!! Re-read please . I specifically stated that NEW Dayton tubeless wheels SOMETIMES have a tendency to leak, as much as two to three lbs over a week, perhaps. So once I mount a new set for the first time, I will spray all 4 wheels as a preventative m...

Re: Dayton wire wheels S3 roadster

I already have. Also, go back and read what was my original suggestion for using this product. Anyone buying a new set of tubeless wheels from Dayton, after mounting and placement on your car, a helpful hint is to spray some of this product in the wheel, and then take the car for a 20 minute spin . ...

That is completely wrong, with no basis of fact. But if it makes you feel better, don't use it.

Nope. No problems. If you use a plug, or have to remove tire and patch, no problem at all.

Re: Dayton wire wheels S3 roadster

Trick to using this stuff, is to use a lot of it, then immediately take the car for a good run, say 20 minutes or so. That should do it. Been using it for years on my tubeless Daytons. Great stuff !

Re: 4 speed manual to OD conversion

If you decide to go the 5 speed route, which I did on my 1973 Series 3, it is not necessary to pull engine. Much simpler then that. Send me a pm and I'll tell ya how its done. BTW, the 5 speed simply transforms the car. 75mph on 2000 rpm's. Fantastic.

Re: Valuation.
