  1. I'm a bit overdue an update so I'll just list either the new parts fitted or refurbished below, what I can remember anyway Fuel tanks - Both fitted with new hoses/x-over pipe, new fuel level sender and pump Rear suspension - All fitted awaiting final tightening once the car is loaded up with all the parts. New upper (adjustable) links, new shocks and springs, new lower links, new wheel bearings, all new bushes (inc. radius arms), all new bolts/fixings. New handbrake cables fitted Doors - trim removed cleaned and treated, window motors removed and refurbished Wipers
  2. That's interesting, were they completely unlubricated from the factory then? If so I'll just clean them up and leave them at that. Escape, thanks for the tip Cheers, Dunc.
  3. I had a search for this but couldn't find it so apologies if I've missed it elsewhere. As per the title, what is recommended for the window runners? Thanks, Dunc.
  4. Hi, I'm hoping someone can help confirm something for me. For oil cooler lines: I know the engine side (Sandwich plate) is 5/8" BSP, is the oil cooler side also 5/8" BSP? I'm planning on using a different cooler but the standard (new) hoses. Thanks, Dunc.
  5. Hope everyone's keeping OK The engine and gearbox have now been completed (massive thanks to Dave) but collecting it is out of the question for now. In the mean time I've started work on the rear suspension, I've got the RH off the car and I've got a couple of studs to drill out there. The wheel bearing feels a bit rough so I'll replace them at the same time as - adjustable top links, new springs and dampers and fresh bushes.
  6. Bit of an update: 1. Removed the rads this morning (was actually easier than I expected) - Rads wil be replaced with custom alloy ones. 2. Fitted the LH tank (RH was already done) Next job is to remove and replace the chassis pipes, also the fuel level sender terminals are melted so will replace this as well. Cheers, Dunc.
  7. Hi Andy, No real update I'm afraid Engine rebuild has started though and shouldn't be too far away from being complete (I'm not doing it myself). I'll update as soon as I have some meaningful information! Dunc.
  8. Just read my original post and I can update a bit from that. Hand brake cables replaced, gear stick with cables removed and inspected, interior stripped down further. RH tank fitted with new fuel pump and seal. I used an array of thin rubber squares I cut out from a sheet of rubber stuck to the bottom of the tank space. The thinking behind it was to have enough blocks to support the tank fully but leave loads of air space for ventilation and drainage if required. I used new rubber grommets for where the tank cross over pipes pass through the bodywork and with stainless steel ri
  9. Hi Richard, Apologies for not being here to respond sooner but there's not been much to add to the thread from me. I assume you've allocated these elsewhere by now? A very generous offer, what a gent you are! Cheers, Dunc.
  10. Looking for recommendations of suppliers for buying these parts in bulk to aid with my restoration. Nuts/bolts/washers/jubilee clips - Good quality parts Thanks in advance, Dunc.
