Re: Open Day April 2019

Thanks Angus - great to see the new premises and be inspired by so many nice cars that were there... Here is a picture, appropriately with a couple of young men checking out the underside of Jeremy's fabulous car...

Hi gents, Many thanks for all the really helpful replies!

Re: Dodgy coil?

Hi Jeremy, To add to the collective knowledge (perhaps!) I had exactly the same symptoms you describe from a Tr6. It was the coil and the replacement would last for about a year, before the same thing would occur. I think this was related to the positioning of the coil to the engine (it’s bolted to ...

Re: Garage / workshop

Hi Gents, Thanks for the input and yes Simon, the blaster is in a cabinet and I have previously fitted an dust extractor, which I think I could rig up to blow the exhaust out of the building with some pipework too. I know just how pervasive dust is and I don’t want it getting onto any shiny new pain...

Garage / workshop

Evening all, Planning a new Garage / workshop for my restoration once the body is back from the painters. I’m thinking that 24’ X 12’ garage/workshop should be an adequate size to work on the car, with good benches at one end and plenty of room for shelving, to store parts, tools and equipment such ...

Re: Pilkington Classic require our assistance

Hi David, Can I just clarify please- you say pilkington have no patterns for series 2, 2+2 Windscreen glass. Mine was cracked and I asked Pilkington last year if they needed my windscreen as a pattern. They confirmed they would not need it and their HT0326 was what I needed. As such, mine has gone t...

Re: Looking for my old E-Type reg "XKE 75"

And I believe cats also liked the warm rear diff of a lorry to sleep on. When the lorry moved off, they could fall off and be hurt or worse. When I was a child we found what we thought could have been such a victim, with a broken jaw and in a right mess. We had her patched her up and she became the ...
