Re: project restoration...

Certain of them they insist are originals.Just sent them all off again for the fourth time.I obviously cant complain if I made a mistake which I did on the first application.I never realised(as I hadnt done it before)that because I couldnt produce an old V5 or tax disc that I couldnt keep the origin...

Re: Convertible Hood - 1951 MM

I hope youre right but cant see why they would bother for nothing.There are a lot of measurements and odd shapes there.

Re: Convertible Hood - 1951 MM

I doubt this forum would be the right place to help you.Even the companies that make the hoods dont use measurements,they have templates and copy them.May stand a better chance contacting these companies direct but I don't hold out much hope of a result.I would either look for another convertible in...

Re: Polishing/waxing 2k paint

Nothing special about the type of paint as far as which polish to use.Whatever floats your boat.There are some fantastic claims made by clever companies to get your money.

Re: Trafficators

Bit of an understatement there.Youre sending an intermittent voltage from the flasher unit to an electromagnet on the trafficator.

Re: Convertible advice

Well OP said the owner paid £3200 for it but not how much he now wants for it.He may have paid that 20 years ago and left it outside since then.

Re: Convertible advice

All depends on the price of course.If its dead cheap(and a genuine convertible not a conversion) and you make the time to do the welding yourself(and lets face it unless youre a cr*p welder youre gonna put a lot more care into the job than the bloke doing it for money),then its probably a good proje...
