Re: Painted wheels???

I’ve just gone from to painted and much prefer, looks more period. Chrome also never seems to last these days.

Re: A rare, period accessory!

It already made my wife giggle when I fitted it! Now if I fitted a vibrating buzzer under the seat, I’m sure she’d giggle even more! Best not go there! Not ruled it out though! :bigrin:

A rare, period accessory!

Just fitted this rare period accessory!
I even fitted the switch at the passenger side, just to be sporting! Must remember that next time I’m not driving!

Re: Moving on. Bike resto

That's very tempting Paul ,they are so rare i don't know their values .It probably makes a lot more sense than an ISA at 0.05% though. I do have enough already to keep me busy on 2 wheels ,400 4, 2 jaguar hairdryers oh and a mk1 chopper. https://i.postimg.cc/j5CQNrH8/IMG-0081.jpg https://i.postimg....

Re: Safe Storage

Well if you do find it please let me know! Amongst many other things, the safe place fairies are looking after a hard to source ammeter for my Norton resto as well as the period ‘Fan’ toggle switch tag for my fan override switch. I’ve now had to buy a new one that says ‘Ejector Seat’ in case I ever ...

H7OB, The pain of finance I can get over. it is the wife giving me grief about wasting my money on cars that's going to hurt more. :bigrin: :bigrin: :bigrin: I feel your pain on that one as well Tony but that’s a subject I’m even less qualified to comment on! Good luck with that! :fingerscrossed:

Re: Feeling a bit gutted today

Hi Tony, I feel your pain. I bought my car at a bit of a risk with a leaky head gasket. It turned out to have cracks between bores so was also gutted. Bit the bullet and had the engine fully rebuilt for what I thought was a very good price. Did 1000 miles on it and had it properly set up on a rollin...

Re: Jaguar Paintings.

Hi Paul, I really like them. If you are running out of wall space would you do one of my e-type? I would gladly pay for it. Jon Cheers Jon. I would love to do more but kids v working from home isn’t leaving much left at the mo! I’ve just managed to squeeze this into a space! Never say never though!

Re: Jaguar Paintings.

Starting to run out of emulsion now! A bit of a cheat with this one as I painted over a print of a photo, but it brings it to life. Running out of wall space unfortunately!

Re: Fuel leaking from right side front wing

I could smell fuel on my first run of the year. It wasn’t to that level but there was fuel on the bottom of two carbs and you could see where it had dripped into the undertray. I had to tighten all the bolts on the fuel lines into the carbs and that seems to have done the trick. I think ethanol hard...

Tyre fitting recommendations, midlands.

My car has a set of Michelin XVS tyres with lots of tread but unfortunately they’re looking old and cracking. I’m starting to look into replacements. As most tyres seem to be on a mail order basis, does anyone have any good recommendations of fitters with experience of wire wheels and inner tubes et...

Re: Wow that's expensive

Isn’t amalgam what fillings are made out of?! Maybe that’s why it sits so low!
I bought a 1:1 911 for £2k less only 11 yrs ago so would struggle with that!

Re: Car insurance

I’ve been insured with Classicline for years. Always been great prices, agreed value and breakdown included. I believe they also do laid up cover.
