Re: Cosmetics

We always blast and wet paint the torsio bars. Regarding powder coating peeling, ours is always primed first so any chips stay as chips. I’ve only seen it peel when the colour is applied over the bare metal.

Re: Door water deflectors

Hi Lee, only the clips for the nylon plugs are wire. I think they grip better inside the plug.

Re: Door water deflectors

Don’t forget the nylon receivers in the bottom row of door card clips. Also, the lower clips are different to the others (made from wire)

Re: FRONT UPPER BALL JOINT KITS

Guys, we don't do this any more - we had a lot of problems when we *think* the supplier changed the material of the nylon insert. This caused them to squeak. I would dearly love a solution but until we can be confident, I have had to suspend this service.

Re: Float level ? S1 4.2 does not start

I think Christopher hit on it regarding the fuel. If it runs ok when you inject EasyStart, then that has to be a clue. Regarding needles, I assume it ran ok before. As people have said, don't touch anything yet (unless you can see an obvious fault). Empty the carbs and rig up a fuel tank with fresh ...

Re: Steering rack rebuild or buy a new one?

Kiley Clinton are excellent. However, if they find a worn part they have to replace it and this could be expensive. Best off getting it checked out by them first for a quote (this will cost). We always replace the racks unless specifically asked to rebuild the original.

Re: New to E types

Thanks for your kind words Chris. From my perspective, you were an ideal customer. Looked at some photos on Monday, looked at the car on Tuesday and trailered it away on Wednesday. An absolute pleasure to work with you and I look forward to following the project.

Re: Boot lid casing assembly on lat 3.8 and 4.2

Radek, talk to BAS. We have fitted theirs. The top is a thin piece of plastic trimmed in vinyl. These can be tricky to fit as the shape is slightly out. We tend to trim vinyl directly onto the top of the hatch.

Their kit also comes with the small piece.
