Re: New woodwork/ Danish oil or Sikkens?

. when the wood is off the car and new ......is it possible to tanalise the wood? I know almost nothing about wood :oops: I haven't changed my wood yet, probably next year, so not speaking from experience, but I do know a bit about wood in the building industry. Tanalising isn't the way to go, it's ...

Re: Rose Taupe Traveller Restoration- update 38

Taupe, fantastic devotion to near original detail and superb craftsmanship. By way of contrast I approached this with a morbid fear of the dreaded rust sandwich, you'll see why from my first picture. I used a hefty piece of steel sheet (2.0mm, I think) folded to an angle for me by my local friendly ...

Re: traveller covers

Thanks for clarification. I was thinking of "upgrading" to Stormforce eventually - main purpose of present cover is to tidy up the drive and hopefully to slow the rusting down to a speed I can weld faster than :)

Re: traveller covers

I've just bought a Dartmoor cover from PJ Covers of Teignmouth. Fits reasonably ok and seems better made than either of the two previous attempts (Machine Mart & Bull Motif) although to be fair both refunded without quibbling. While I was researching for mine I came across bmc's comments about the S...

Re: Sill step replacement

Thanks, that's really useful. I had been thinking I would cut the end off the new sill, butt weld all the way round and then make a new flange welded over the join and against the seat box.

Sill step replacement

I'm one of those lovely people who lurk on here and benefit from all your experience without ever posting anything back, but I promise my project (aka Traveller "in need of minor tidying") will feature on here one of these days. I'm in the process of fairly major surgery to one side and have cut out...

Re: your only 40 once!

Mine was for my 60th last year. We were camping and it was adversely affected by the damp - authentic or what? :) [frame]Image[/frame]
