Daimler 1968 250 V8 Petrol Tank

Hi, My second vehicle a 1968 Daimler 250 V8 is in real need of a replacement petrol tank. Any thoughts or suggestions on whereabouts? Yes, I know this is a long shot but felt I needed to ask our membership. It's just the sort of item some enthusiast has put away under an old blanket for safe keeping...

Re: MM Quarterlight Repair

Thanks again for all the interest and wonderful comments and in the case of Rob such terrific finds. It's such a great pity that the two quarter light finds are rusted through. Double drat. So I still have to go once again the route of modifying a later quarter light frame. Remember I did this for t...

Re: MM Quarterlight Repair

Hi Rob,

Just look what you found. You are the man. I've been toiling for months and months and you actually have everything I need? That's brilliant and almost speechless. I think I need to pay you a visit. Can we sort something out?
Regards......harry.

Re: MM Quarterlight Repair

Hi Rob, Thanks once again for the feedback and we are slowly making some progress. The bottom pivot position is different to the later quarter light frames. An earlier photo attached to this post illustrates the dimensions. Here I have attached a photo of the pivot block mentioned earlier that needs...

Re: Flaring Tool for Copper Rivets

Hi Rob, Many thanks for the reply. I will speak with LAS Aero on Monday to identify the specific rivet set. However just looking at their suitable products the tubular rivet sets these are £30 + VAT and delivery. Since this is single use situation for only 26 rivets I'm sure the readers understand t...

Flaring Tool for Copper Rivets

PLEASE CAN YOU HELP. I removed two riveted channels from each of the window frames om my 1949 low light before having all the components re-chromed. The channels were riveted to the window frames and I drilled them out for removal. Now comes the time to replace the channels onto the frames. I'm tryi...

Re: MM Quarterlight Repair

Hi Rob, Really welcome your reply. I will look forward to the results of your quarter light search. Regarding the copper rivets these can be found on ebay and come in from Hong Kong. However its crucial we purchase the correct type. I might be able to find them in UK and will search. I presume we ca...

Re: MM Quarterlight Repair

Hi Rob, Greetings. I've just been advised by the platers that now the drivers side quarter light is too far gone for chroming. Double drat. Every which way I turn I get smacked in the face. I notice during this post that you had found a painted drivers side quarter light. Just like the one in the pi...

Chrome Window Frame Assembly - Copper Riveting

Greetings readers can you help? I recently made the decision to have the window frame assemblies on my 1949 Lowlight re-chromed. To facilitate re-chroming I removed the vertical channels (2 per door) by drilling out the numerous 1/8 inch copper rivets. Now with the chroming completed I need to re-ri...

Re: side window, is this an original?

Hi TvdWerf, Yes this looks just perfect for my 1949 low light. I'm missing one and in need of a replacement quarter light for the passenger side (refer photo). Note the extensive corrosion damage which is probably beyond repair. My own post (MM Quarter Light Repair) has been running for sometime now...

Re: MM Quarterlight Repair

Hi Rob, Thinking as one does. Perhaps a better alternative solution would be to take a very good condition quarter light frame (of same profile) from a later model and transfer over to it both swivel pins and the half moon catch. This would involve some detailed drilling of the donor frame, welding ...

Re: MM Quarterlight Repair

Hi Rob, Thanks for the reply. Well, well you were right to query my thickness measurement because the actual measurement is 1.5mm. :D I had to brush up my micrometer reading skills. Definitely 1.5mm. No possibility of getting the "U" section for profiling job. Although flat plate might be better to ...

Re: MM Quarterlight Repair

Hi Rob, Thanks for the reply. I will speak with those people you mention but their range does not appear to cover the "low light" styling. They do appear to be in stainless steel however. Not certain of the material quality or origin of manufactured. I've taken a measurement of the material thicknes...

Re: MM Quarterlight Repair

Hi Rob, Thanks for your interest in my quarter light issue. This issue remains outstanding. In the end I did not bid on the pair on eBay as I was not certain after speaking with ByranG (sparesman) that they were in fact the same profile for my 1949 Low Light. Perhaps I was too cautious in this case....
