I have used jepsons and framptons over the years and happy with both,

Don't k...

Re: Perspex Windscreen repair

Poly carb as Phil says is the way to go, Companies such as those in the link above May possibly buy it in pre-cut from a specialist, so may be expensive, some sign companies will hold stock of clear and smoke poly, our local one does and is happy to sell off cuts or to cut it to shape for you, I wou...

Re: Brake pipe clamping

That is an excellent little clamp and not expensive, I have had one identical for around 20 years and never had a problem, But, If you are clamping off a brake line have the clamp on for the shortest time possible, a clamped line is fine for hours at a time but I've seen people leave them on for wee...

Re: Wanted a roof light box

I agree with Simon there were lots of options available regards illuminated roof signs, But I would say the three most popular styles appear to be, Inverted "A" as in the pictures in my previous post, so looking at the side view the sign box is wider at the top than the bottom, Capital "A" similar t...

Re: Seat Belt Supplier

If you have a look on eBay under "classic seat belts" you will find lots of origional style second hand belts, Even if the webbing is past it there are companies around that can replace the webbing to a safe and professional standard, I know there's one in Essex but can't remember their name at the ...

Hopefully I'll have some time over the Christmas break and into the new year,

Re: Soda blasting or acid dipping

Wasn’t saying blasting is unsuitable, just pointing out the differences, Glass is probably the most common method used now, but Soda has become the “in” word, and some companies will charge soda prices and use glass, (which is much cheaper) if you do present a vehicle for any sort of blasting other ...
