I did mention it in passing in another post, but anyway so far the results are mixed. In some places the jenolite did nothing, in the majority it wiped down to bare metal or converted some patches... then the rain fell. So I now (well i was away for a week so dont know whats happened since) but it s...

:lol: and the directions voice sits on the passenger seat right? :D

I believe deluxe also had the white parcel shelf, that was the only suggestion anyone had as to why some minors had white and the majority had black parcel shelves in the duotone years.

If you fiind and use Jenolite I advise you dont get it wet ( it rained while I was using it :( ) I now have yellow/white metal (the yellow is the colour people describe their radiator mayonaise as). Looks absolutely dreadful, same rain also managed to make streaks on my nice smooth primed front pane...

ah well self cancelling indicators has jumped down my priority of things to do, mainly because the sun is shining, the day is calm (been waiting over 2 weeks for this day to come) and I can get on with priming,painting, derusting and so on :D

That's certainly the same stuff, what made me think it was a convertor was it saying that it converts into "a stable compund" which sounded like Kurusts rust convertor. On re-reading the label it suggests you wipe off this compound and it reveals bare metal, is that correct?

indicator stalk - self return?

Hi, Okay not so very long ago I got a new indicator stalk assembly off ebay. It works perfectly except for one thing. It doesnt return to off, it switches off after you've turned, but it doesnt go back down to it's neutral position. The person who fitted it for me says with more use (it being stiff ...

Also isn't double declutch just where you press and depress the clutch twice (sorry im no g...

Contrary to popular opinion, this area is easy to repair Though I havnt done it, it looked an easy job, does that mean a reasonably good condition one can be cut off, the rusty area scrubbed away, primed and painted and then box section welded back on? I should follow your advice and waxoil the are...

The reason I asked is that you can only get sandblasting done round my area, and even that may not be true as it was just a rumour floating round :) Either way for the minute im broke after spending all my money on the car anyway :lol:

so my plan of masking tape over the rubber, paint remover on the wheels to get to the rust for a bit of a brushing or rust converting and then old english white paint is a no-no then? I really should find out how much the sandblasting in this area is (I get the feeling it will be terribly expensive)...
