    Re: White Roadster at Kelsall

    Was slightly puzzled to see 20 posts by my name . Seems that I was posting back in 2007, so this wasn’t actually my first post. Obviously, memory ain’t what it used to be !!!

    Re: White Roadster at Kelsall

    Ah, that would be me Dave!

    Built the Roadster back in 83/84 but it’s been buried in the garage for the last 10 years or so. Thought it was about time to do something with it so put it back on the...

    Re: Exhaust flange seal

    Thanks all for the responses.

    Exhaust flange seal

    Thought i'd make the most of a wet weekend by fixing that annoying exhaust leak between the bottom of the manifold (cast Marina TC item) and the Marlin/YKC stainless steel downpipe (which passes out...

    Re: Engine brace

    Don

    My B-series used to do this but was cured by a new set of mounts as Alan suggests. Also, my nearside mount has a 4mm thick steel spacer added which sits on top of the mounting block to very...

    Re: Headlamp Bar

    Big thanks to Trevor for coming up trumps in my hour of need! You've got me back on the road for Easter which I really thought was a lost cause.

    The re-chroming will now have to wait - too much...

    Fibreglass repairs

    With an engine change planned shortly, I thought it would be a good time to whip the nearside wing off and deal with the star-crazing in the paint/gelcoat before a respray. I'm not looking for a...

    While the rear axle is off, I thought it might be timely to replace the rear dampers - they're working ok but are 23 years old! Can anyone remind me what they are and/or what I should replace them...
