Re: E-type illustrations - colour help

Love the style.....

I used a product called Alubright from Race Glaze

Www.receglaze.co.uk

Effective and quite gentle

Being an anorak.... I then sprayed the hubs with clear lacquer.... :bigrin:

Re: New year's day Brooklands

Excellent turn out....good to see it so popular...I had to queue for 10 mins at 08.45, but no big deal....happy for Brooklands to be able to reap the success
Seem to recall 1500 cars was busy 2 years ago so that might mean more than 2,000 today..!

There might be a bit of an E - 911 thing as well. Another great, reliable, all year round sports car!
:thumbsup:
Yup...+1 on that combination, early 911’s are phenomenal cars, so well engineered and constructed, designed from the onset with years of potential development

Re: Triplex headlamp covers.

Hi

Likely to be pin marks from the mechanism that gripped and held them during the toughening process....not seen on modern glass so much if at all as the toughening process can be done differently

Completely agree on the replace versus refurbish approach...simply replacing is missing the point....

Good luck with restoring...it’s worth it....oh and the old parts fit better too... 8-)
