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

I appear to have managed to fail to take a photo of my progress today...but not a huge issue given there's not much to see! All of the rivets to the left of the seat in the floor of TPA have now been drilled out and replaced with stainless bolts. The vast majority just disintegrated the moment I tou...

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

Did you see my thread on this subject? http://www.practically-classics.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7206 These are still available if you want them...... Oh, no I hadn't spotted that...They are a little newer than most of my stuff, though the one running 95 probably just about squeaks in. Severa...

Here's one of our periodic wanders off into the world of obsolete technology which happen now and then around me... Hello there... https://i.ibb.co/D4mWj39/IMG-20200928-165511.jpg We've got yet another system to join the vintage Toshiba portable computer family. Well...sort of. I used to have one of...

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

This afternoon I made a horrendous mess in the garage while pulling out most of the old rubber floor mats from the Invacar. https://i.ibb.co/jVpW2Ft/IMG-20200926-163305.jpg This took a lot longer than hoped as while it was falling apart, the bits that were still stuck to the floor were VERY stuck to...

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

Forgot to post up yesterday's update... -- -- -- We had a little bit of excitement this morning while I was putting the Xantia in for the MOT in that the 2CV decided that mashed against the floor was a good place for the throttle pedal to sit - irrespective of whether my foot was on it or not. Didn'...

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

You made a tidy job of the dolly, what did you use on the steering wheel? Mine are usually filthy ( im a grubby bugger) soapy water cleans me up fine but won't touch steering wheel grime.. That was just the own-brand antibacterial surface wipes from Costco. I find that they're really good at cuttin...

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

Despite running around like a headless chicken for a large portion of the last few days I finally got an hour and a bit this afternoon to get some cleaning work done on the 2CV. Yesterday the driveshafts and suspension shackle tie rods were greased as it was identified they were missed when the car ...

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

While I've not actually been instructed to do anything to this car I will give it an once over and generate a list of observations of things that I think need doing. This is something that happens to any car that passes through our driveway pretty much. She's also in pretty serious need of a good ol...
