  1. The Hornchurch massive will be in attendance. ( Both members... )
  2. Keep saying it doesn’t help.... does it Chris...
  3. Capping rail and trim in position. screen trims fitted well. please with the outcome. head lining and seats back in next. After the leather has been re colonised.
  4. I will get you one for Christmas @Barrykearley looks great in an S4s get rid of that hideous factory one
  5. That would be great. If you have one for £50.00 I’ll take it Richard.
  6. Steve Peacock @ supreme panel craft has done the business again. Any body work or paint he is hard to beat.
  7. My new roof, minus its rubbish aftermarket sunroof.
  8. Created a false roof inside with 2mm Perspex and CT1 adhesive. Laying up after feathering the edge all around the opening. Lapped glass over the edge in layers building a solid joint. Pleased so far. Going to get my body work guy Steve Peacock to finish when the glass is complete. got the new screen from Mike Taylor at Lotus bits yesterday. Lovely guy with a great workshop. Was very tempted with an offer of a sunbeam complete with a spare shell ( all dipped)
  9. Yeh is a mess. Got auto glass on the case. Doing the roof as well. Thanks for the congrats mate.. I have a bodywork guy that is advising me on laying it up in glass fibre and gel coat filler.
  10. Decided to change the capping rail trim and get rid of the after market sun roof. Screen change also
  11. Well that’s a relief. Thought when you and Ian ( chilli dog) made a late night (12 midnight to be precise) international, person to person call I was going to be told that my servo rod adaptor was a danger to mankind and the UN had been informed. Or was it the gin speaking ( geezer ) Have fun you crazy kids....
  12. Found a replacement servo for the TE. same bolt patterns and sizes. Diameter is about 20mm smaller. Problem was that the operation piston had the wrong connection. As you can see it’s like a clevis loop. Any way I cut the loop off and made a female adapter with a roll pin to fix in place. Screw a stud and lock nut in and presto. Adapted. I have made sure that all the pressure is transferred onto the stud and not the roll pin by screwing in the stud until it bottoms onto the piston shaft before locking off. Once it’s fitted it should cure the small leak and then the brake and vac pump conversion is pretty much finished.
  13. All torqued up, just need to bleed the brakes and tracking. Going to change the Water hoses after Good wood.
  14. We are at revival also but should be back for Sunday morning. Definitely maybe. W+M
