Re: barrie's project

Very nice work! Hope you don't mind me asking have you fitted spring washers or shake proof washers on the brake back plate bolts under the nuts they look a bit short on length? don't want then coming loose. might be the photo angle maybe.

Re: SILVER WHEEL PAINT

After tyres were removed a good match to the original silver I found to be RAL 9022 SILVER in 2k other silvers are available but water based & then require clear lacquer

Re: SILVER WHEEL PAINT

Thanks palacebear they will be done in 2k Dark silver (69 van) i'm not a fan of powder coating. I will have a look at the colour chips next time I go into the paint shop. Also how would a concours judge know if it was the correct silver anyway? They may know perhaps light or dark for the year maybe....

Re: Mot Centre damaged my car

Look like to me it's corrosion that's caused the hole! & Most MOT inspectors mark defects with yellow chalk.

I was watching a program the other day with mark evans about a young lady restoring a frog eye and the gearbox was mid bronze green and looked nice! Not that you can see much of it when fitted !
