Re: Brittax L471 Lenses

It is highly unlikely they still have the moulds for those units though, collectors items.
Preserved on my car for posterity! :D

Re: Circular heater

Not bad, there's quite a flow of air from the blower and with the flaps shut it's all going to the screens.
Do you have its model number? It's an attractive period aftermarket item and I will keep an eye out for one, if they're not prohibitively expensive these days.
Best wishes,
Mike.

Lovely car, I hope you get your registration back.
When is your car museum opening? You have enough cars to start it up now I believe............ :wink:

Re: Circular heater

Mine is a Tudor and the motor in it is controlled by the separate rheostat on the left of the Speedo. Looks good, how good is it at demisting though? I like the round Smiths heaters and have always been perfectly happy with the amount of heat the put into the car itself, however the fan doesn't see...

Re: Advantages of a 3:9:1 diff

I will give the 4.22 a go, because the car will get some motorway use but, correct me if I'm wrong, I believe the 4.55 was standard fitment for a 948 engine.
Best wishes,
Mike.

Re: Advantages of a 3:9:1 diff

Thanks Phil, Opinions and information is what I'm after with this question. I'm interested in what makes these diffs so sought after, however if, as you say, a 948 would suffer with one fitted then I won't be fitting one. It also saves me money :D , as I already have a 4.22 in my shed. Best wishes,...

Advantages of a 3:9:1 diff

Hi, I've been toying with the idea of a 3:9:1 diff mated to the 948 when it goes in but how much better would it be than a standard 4:2:2 diff? Would it improve top speed, just make for more relaxed motorway driving, better torque??................. I'd be interested to know, as everyone seems to r...

Re: How many shades of Grey??

It looks green in the last pic... :lol: 'Olwyn' was originally Imperial Green before she was resprayed at some point, in what opinion pointed to, being an Austin colour but no-one could quite pin it down. Had finances allowed me to keep her, she would have gone back to Imperial Green at some point,...

Re: Positive v negative earth?

I've got alloy mini lites on my van. The old wheels were corroded and buckled. To me it was an easy option. Modern wheels are stronger, lighter and safer. In your opinion, which you have a right to. There is nothing wrong with the original wheels, in my opinion, they have lasted 60 odd years, so ca...

Re: Positive v negative earth?

The beer or the monks? Neither, the beer is well flat, if available and the monks have shuffled off this mortal coil........ The parchment is, however, nicely aged. Though there is a beer called Grey Ghost, I will have to enquire with them which monastery they belonged to and pay my respects..........

Re: Positive v negative earth?

I assume that some of you are scratching your posts onto parchment and having your other half transcribe it into a modern format for posting on the WWW? Actually I post mine off, via a wormhole in time, back to a Medieval Monastic Scriptorium to have them transcribed, as they do a much better job w...

Re: Positive v negative earth?

I personally find standard cars unsafe on modern roads with the fools that drive 500bhp german autobahn stormers. Agreed! I would also include the current obsession with 4 x 4's and People Carriers, for most it seems it is little more than an extension of their ego! They drive them like they are dr...

Re: Rear lighting / fuel sender loom routing

A bit nicer to look at now..... Plus it allowed to eliminate all the hacking, chopping and splicing that the front half of the loom had endured over the decades as well. Along with the opportunity to clean up a few connections, such as the brake light switch. I also refurbished the horn and polishe...

Re: How many shades of Grey??

I do like the Clarendon on your (resprayed?) example. :P It's a fine looking car too. It's a bit more specific than 'Dark Grey' as well, plus I can just imagine them asking me: "And which shade of Dark Grey would that be then sir?" Closely followed by: "Ooooh, suits you sir! Suits you!" :lol: Best ...

Re: Brittax L471 Lenses

I have to admit the L471 unit looked a little small for brake lights when I first saw them on a Moggy many years ago, however they have grown on me and now I rather like them (in either Brittax or Lucas form). I don't know about vehicle regs at the time they were in current production but the posit...

Re: Brittax L471 Lenses

Keep your Britax lenses. They were a quality manufacturer and have built-in reflectors, unlike the Lucas original. I intend to, I like them. :D However, I picked up a pair of NOS Lucas L471 rear lights off eBay a month back, so out of curiosity I opened one up to take a look and guess what..... Pla...
