Re: Strut tops: Repairs or Factory finish?

Jesus they're expensive, and ugly. I'll just get a strut brace. I could get you a pair delivered for the price of one of theirs. I'll keep that in mind mate. A strut brace isn`t really a substitute for the strut/inner wing reinforcement plates, it just maintains the gap between the strut tops for g...

Re: roll over jig

That would work, bit of weld in the more important areas. Im thinking 2 girders at each end of car that are mounted between the ceiling joists and the floor and the car can be spinning in between. Not very mobile tho That is also a cool idea. A modified two post lift would be very cool. I have a re...

Re: Can you please tell me what it's worth?

I would probably consider paying £800 for it. If I were looking.

Strut tops: Repairs or Factory finish?

Hi there I took of the very rusty plates on top of my strut tops which revealed more rust and holes. I assumed these were strut top repairs done when people didn't care about fixing them properly. However I have seen a few restorations now where they are still there. Which leads me to think that the...

Re: roll over jig

I am looking at this at the moment. I really want one but don't want to buy a proper one.

Re: Why mechanics as a job don't interest me

I hate it when they change parts due to fault codes then more parts when it then throws up a different fault code. They expect to charge you for all the parts they have changed when it was just a crank sensor. I tell them to put the original parts back on that weren't faulty. I remember getting a ca...

Re: Why mechanics as a job don't interest me

Because nobody wants to pump the suspension up with a foot pump next to the clutch. It would take all the fun out of poncing around with fancy suspension. :lowrider:

Re: Chrome paint?

Yes you can and it looks like brushed aluminium. You should look up DIY electroplating.

Re: Capri Meet in 4 Weeks!

Doesn't look good. I won't be able to go if it's raining because my kids will have to stay in the car. I will have to stay in the car. Everyone will be in their cars.

I can't do next week because my Mrs will have the car because she is going to Wiltshire to watch her mother do a wing walk.

Re: Electric Turbocharger

I'm guessing they are using it like kers but just as an anti lag device. So I guess it runs from a battery that is charged during normal driving.
