Re: Door hinge restoring.

Can't find any splines. I'll give it a go next time I'm here.

Re: Door hinge restoring.

The following pictures are the RH top hinge, Picture A:[frame] http://mmoc.org.uk/mbimage.php?src=1443091872_11719 [/frame] Picture B:[frame] http://mmoc.org.uk/mbimage.php?src=1443091905_11719 [/frame] Now I'm assuming hit it from picture A, but I've never done this and rather than waste time doing...

Re: Thread for hinge bolts?

Hello gents sorry to open old thread

About to remove my pins, so when gettin them out, I tap from the flat end of the pin, not the end with the bump on it (assuming spline and bump mean the same thing) I'm clearly a pro.....


Thanks in advance!

Re: Door hinge restoring.

So use a pillar stand and clamp the hinge underneath? Both sides of the hinge together or one at a time?


Also, in getting the hinge pin out, do I hit it out from the flat side of the pin or the raised bit?


Thanks

Re: Door hinge restoring.

Smashing, so that's a yes.

As for drilling the new hole, what's the best approach for that?

Many thanks!

Re: Door hinge restoring.

Hi guys, To feel for wear in the hinge pin, if I'm holding the hinge open in my hand and it has some play in it like a little rock side to side does that mean the pin has worn? Not every hinge does it some have no play at all when in the hand and open. Would the fix for said play getting the oversiz...

My daughter bought me the vizard book for Father's Day! Although very informative, it's kind of over my head as an engine newbie.....

Re: How do you find your motivation?

Ah! I've sourced an old 1098 engine that's restorable and decided to use that to learn on and take apart an recondition as a completely different change from body work and welding and measuring!!! Learn a new skill instead and all about engines. Any decent books or guides anyone can recommend would ...

Re: How do you find your motivation?

That's true, I just worry about going backwards with it and it getting into a state before I can get it better!

Just one of those days, yes yes, I'm very good at reciting quotes to people and ignoring them myself!

How do you find your motivation?

Good evening ladies and gents, I've got a few days free coming up I'd like to spend on the car but I appear to have lost my motivation with the car, it looks like a mammoth task and that I've gone and taken apart and taken backwards steps! I'm sure many of you have the same feelings at times, I was ...

Lines the outer panel up and cut out the rot....slight problem with new panel not matching the curve of the door, think it was squashed in transit, bit of bending then I'll start sticking him on!

Cheers!

Re: Door bottom repairs

Cheers Bob, I'll give that a go.
My concern with the seal channel is I'm not sure where exactly to weld it, and I'd read some posts on here that people have trouble shutting their doors without a hefty slam afterwards!

Not working on it until next week now so I'll keep you updated. Many thanks.

Re: Door bottom repairs

Any hints on getting the alignment better? This is with pushing the lip on the new panel under the remaining door skin, should I do away with the lip and butt weld it?[frame]Image[/frame]

Re: Door seals - bottom or inside?

Afternoon all,

Question about same bottom channel. Fixing my doors currently and I'm not doing it up for concours or entirely original either, does this bottom channel and seal actually do anything major or can I just miss it out?

Cheers!

Re: Door bottom repairs

Oooh and another question!!!! You know the metal strip you weld on the bottom of the door that holds that seal in, is that completely necessary? I only ask because my doors have always had the metal channel but never the seal, I didn't know there was supposed to be one in there until I started this ...

Re: Door bottom repairs

Also, a loosely related question:

The bolts were a nightmare to get off to remove the door, I'll be getting new ones and will be using copper slip on every bolt from now on, is there any brand of it you've used and would recommend?

Cheers!

Re: Door bottom repairs

Brilliant, thanks for that. I've got to cut away the manky tin work infested metal first but I'll let you know how I get on. Here's the under side. Not amazing but it's having a skim of filler anyway.


Cheers!
