    Windscreen Marking

    took a land rover defender windscreen to local glass shop and they cut to shape leaving all the markings cost £20 plus £35 for the screen.
  2. yeah saw that one might end up with a spare engine might be a bit heavy for the hood though.
  3. got the Robin hood to finish, got a s1 Dutton phaeton to rebuild, got a 1968 Commer TS3 to renovate, might have another 5 Commer lorries to dismantle for parts, so going to be a tad busy!! ohh and mustn't forget the Wife's list ! Looking for a large tent to put the Commer in if anyone knows of anything.
  4. when removing vinyl signage from vans we found the best thing was petrol and cheaper than most of the stuff you can buy that doesn't work anyway HTH.
  5. I thought the collapsable part was in the column itself ?? sierra wheel doesn't collapse?
  6. yes they can they just connect a laptop to the diagnostic socket and bypass all the security, you can now buy a security box to fit around it to stop them. like this: http://www.garrisonlocks.co.uk/ford-transit-2014-onwards-obd-port-socket-protection?utm_source=google_shopping&gclid=CKOoirqqg9QCFQ06GwodIWcEVg
  7. thank you for your reply when I have uploaded photos I've simply reduced there size with windows paint (if I can do it anyone can!!) I do not use photo hosting sites because you may give away your copyright and allow your photos to be used without your knowledge by anyone for anything! surely though if sites like retro ford/pistonheads (who dont have a membership fee) etc can do it then surely one of the biggest kitcar forums should. maybe it's time to use advertising to cover the cost?, I believe that's how the aforementioned do it and it's not intrusive. also if you stopped people having gif's etc on their profile or whatever it's called the data they use could be used for photos I know which is more useful! keep up the good work.

  9. it's pant's that we can't upload photos directly most other sites you can!!! although you can if you reduce their size!!
  10. I think I'm right in saying that although side repeaters are necessary they dont have to be on the cycle wings? I'm sure someone here will have the necessary knowledge you'll just have to wait until they return from church

    Blue Or Gray Smoke

    find a hill and coast down with foot off the throttle then accelerate if you get loads of smoke then valve stem seals or oil control rings. my old mini used to completely engulf the road before I rebuilt the engine,and it needed new valve stems as well as seals.

    due to shield gas getting expensive I've gone back to stick if you learn to stick weld you'll find everything else much easier.
  14. nice job, been thinking about this for a while but I've got a spot welder so should be easier, how do you locate the sides when closed?
  15. spotted this anyone ID it definitely dodgy http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Dutton-kit-car-Westfield-copy-/262920362143?hash=item3d3746589f%3Ag%3A6z0AAOSwmgJY4O3H
  16. you should drill drainage holes in all the tubes at their lowest point and spraying waxoyl inside is a good idea IMHO water will find its way in through rivets bolts and just about anywhere.
  17. yep I'll be having a look at that when I get home at the end of the month. I saw the prices even the transit ones are an arm and a leg.
  18. yeh couldn't remember how they operated and I'm 5000 miles away from mine at the mow!, think I'll have a look at making something when/if I ever get any time. I've got 2 mt75's but only 1 switch that works and they seen to be as strong as egg shells!
  19. would this work? it's a RWD transit one, could probably make an adapter plate like this, I'm in need of one for my dutton mt75 reckon I'll have a go when I get home.
