Re: What attaches here?

Hi Ash
When I trial fitted the heat shield, I found that the hole in the middle of the shield - arrowed in the pic - lines up perfectly with the lug. So I guess it's a forth attachment point for the shield?
Best of luck with your engine.

Re: What attaches here?

Hi Ash
I'm sure you're aware that if the shield is original, the insulating material will be asbestos. If you think to pass on what attaches to the lug, great. Maybe someone else will chip in at some stage?

Re: Upper Steering Column Bearings

Hi Steve
I've just found a source for the wavy washer thats part of the lower bearing arrangement. Mine was broken as I think is quite common. Let me know if you need to source one and I'll pass on the details.

Re: What attaches here?

Hi Ash Yes this is the underside. This is the rear part of the gearbox tunnel. The 5 holes on the LHS of the picture are where the rear engine [gearbox support] mount bolts to the car. I think I've got it right in this picture. The heat shield in question has a bracket [with a captive nut] sticking ...

What attaches here?

I think that the front horizontal exhaust heat shield [C25101] attaches to the tab arrowed in this photo. Is that correct?
Thanks in advance.

Horn wiring & lighting relay mod questions

The picture shows 2 relays attached to the LH mudguard. The top one is alternator and the bottom horn. Firstly, I'm pretty certain thats how they were fitted in the factory? The horns were bolted to the bottom of the picture frame with all of the associated wiring contained in the engine bay, again ...

Re: What sort of gap?

Thanks everyone for taking the trouble to reply. Fortunately, we're not too far down the road to alter anything. The shell was initially soda blasted which revealed where lead was added during production including the top corner of the O/S B post [where the bottom of the Q/L pillar attaches] which m...

Re: What sort of gap?

Hi John Thanks for taking the trouble to reply. One thing that I've realised today is that the seal that runs up the rear of the window frame is the same section as the seal that runs up the Q/L hinge pillar. Previously I'd thought that the seal that runs around the outside of the window frame was t...

What sort of gap?

I spent some time last week fitting and adjusting my doors, and trial fitting the window frames. I'm going to have another go in the next couple of days with some weight in the doors to simulate the missing components. I'm also going to trial fit the quarter lights to see what sort of gap there is b...

Re: Interior questions?

Hi Steve I've stripped, and am half way through refurbishing the seats - repainting, powder coating - new diaphragms foams etc, but I'm certainly not going to recover them. I'll leave that to a proper upholsterer. I like to do as much work on the car as possible myself but [probably like a lot of us...

Re: Interior questions?

Thanks for that Steve. Also, the door hinge post in my car [pictured] was covered in carpet, but I don't think this was correct? I think it should be vinyl? And the rear wheel arches in my car had some padding on them with [more leather!!] covering applied on top. Should there be some sort of trimme...

Interior questions?

On the outboard corners of both of my seat pans is a hardboard extension piece as shown in the pictures. These pieces are stapled onto the tack strip. Is this original? If this is original, surely these "ears" would have been made of plywood? https://i.postimg.cc/QCpVWy9j/IMG-1814.jpg https://i.post...

Re: Lost parts in restoration

Also, having spent several hours assiduously fettling and polishing some lovely pieces of chrome that came with my car, I discovered that they ...

Re: Is this original....

Thanks for your replies men. It seems a bit odd to have plug leads jammed up against one another like this. GM [and I'm sure other manufacturers] have been quite prescriptive about how plug leads should be separated. In particular, they specify that the leads for plugs that sit next to each other in...

How much sound deadening material??

I'm off to the US next week and will be picking up some acoustic/heat barrier for my jam jar. I intend to buy 60 sq ft. Will this be sufficient to do the interior of the car, and the inside of the passenger doors? Your thoughts please. ATB Andy https://s8.postimg.cc/ophzgr76d/IMG_0936.jpg https://s8...
