Re: What would you buy & why?

I'm a long, long way to getting my A35 in that state!! Owners' Club have had that van on our stand at NEC in the past. We've also discovered the where-abouts of James Hunt's old A35 van (conversion). :thumbs: It was bought at auction a few months ago and is owned by a new Club member. It is currentl...

Re: Ford Anglia 106e (Estate) - Now in the USA!

Not entirely related but back in 1980 I had to work in Cape Town for a few weeks but that was not long enough so I had to get my Visa extended. Showed the paperwork I had to the lady behind the desk who took a quick glance and pushed it back with a set of forms and grunted "Fill this in in triplicat...

Re: Austin A35 Project

I know. Slow but methodical is my way ... I'll set a deadline in the New Year! I'm working to the "How do you eat an elephant? .. One small bite at a time!" approach ... The loss of my work light was the main reason to down tools yesterday. I'll try and at least get some etch-primer on the tunnels t...

Re: Austin A35 Project

I must love scraping ... more of the same today. The interior floors, heel board, gearbox and prop tunnels are now devoid of that sound deadening gunk from 1959. Then wire brushed down (angle grinder one) and the odd surface rust areas treated with Hydrate-80. Then my work light expired and it wasn'...

Re: I'm back! Ford Anglia 106e (Estate)

According to our Club's DVLA Liaison they are starting to get through the backlog. They are also talking more to Owners' Clubs when requests come in for registration docs, etc to help the DVLA decide whether the request is genuine. Oddly there are some unscrupulous individuals who try various deviou...

Re: Austin A35 Project

And now devoid of any panels .. fixed or removable. Last one to come off was the boot lid which you can only remove if you take out the headlining and rear seat (the very narrow parcel shelf is actually part of the seat back and screwed in place .. it's plywood!) It now has this through the centre o...
