Tadek Wrote: I can bet Bill it was copper Hello Tadek, For sure there will be copper, but highly unlikely to the extent that its increased the thickness variation between the two example B/Bar blades shown in the picture.

Re: Rear Bumpers & Rubber Lip Seals

Hello Stuart, Of course you're right; I don't know why I thought the pictures were of over-riders. In that case, the seal shown in the picture is inverted. The same advice applies though if you can't get the seal to fit correctly with the correct lip side of the seal fitted to the B/Bar blade; caref...

Re: Rear Bumpers & Rubber Lip Seals

Not only is the beading inverted, but its the wrong beading. The profile that's shown in the picture is for use between the B/Bar and the body of S1, S1.5 and S3 Cars; S2 cars used a much wider seal in that area. The correct beading will probably work on both over-riders, but if there is still a pro...

Re: New Paint

Hello Geoff, There are two ways to have subsequent paint systems adhere; 1. by chemical link and 2. Keying the surface; what I call the Ploughed Field effect. If you look at a painted surface under high magnification, after it’s been sanded, it looks like a ploughed field; generally, this is necessa...

Hello Tim, I doubt that BAS or Aldridge sell seal kits, but the usual suppliers of After Market Parts do.

Re: Cracks in the sills at the door corners.

The main reason for cracking in this area and where the sill joins the cowl, is that in the factory the joint was only tack, or stitch welded and then lead wiped. When I replace sill panels, or do any repairs at either of the areas mentioned, I TIG braze the full length of the joint, as shown in the...
