Re: Austin A35 Project

Took a drive up to my local steel stockists and picked up some 20x20 square tube and a Hobbyweld 5 cylinder. I've bought a regulator conversion kit just before Christmas so after a bit of a faff with the original feed hose connector (which should have pulled off but wouldn't!), I connected it all up...

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

If the brake fluid has been in there for a while it should really be flushed through and changed to new. It attracts moisture and over time the cylinders may start to rust internally .. and that cuts up the seals ... and then they leak. You can get various tools to help that use the spare tyre to pr...

Re: Austin A35 Project

Well Christmas definitely got in the way .. as did a "request" from Mrs T to decorate a bedroom before our youngest returned for the festive period (which for him is about 4 nights!). So that took priority .... :? I picked up a pair of NOS track-rod ends for a very good price as my car lucky as the ...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

That's on the "unusual" scale Unusual? Maybe... however it looks like a supremely practical, flexible and useful vehicle. So, what have I found, having had a chance to look over the...car? Van? It's half of one, half of another... we're just going to say "car" for the sake of simplicity. Wheel-chai...

Re: What would you buy & why?

The Model 3s centrally mounted "dash" would annoy me .. still makes it easier to convert from LHD to RHD I suppose ...

Must have looked at an Austin A30/A35 when they were designing it!! (Yes, that annoyed me in 1971 as well ....)

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Not to derail this thread and go down that rabbit hole, but what on earth is going on in the UK at the moment? I'm hearing from some family that they are going into ANOTHER lockdown due to Omicron, a strain that has lower severity of symptoms and hasn't caused a single death yet? Things are far fro...

Re: What would you buy & why?

The shortage of "chips" (as in silicon, not potato) means that new cars are delayed/limited so 2nd-hand vehicles have seen a jump in prices as people buy them to fill the gap ... I don't think Brexit had much to do with it. People might be investing in a good petrol engined car now rather than be st...
