Re: Rear angled Number Plate Holder

Hi Ron.

Sorry, just so I’m clear. Are you saying the uk cars did have the angled rear Number Plate Holders fitted. If the answer is yes Ron do you think anyone has one that they could take some measurements of so I could fabricate a new piece.

Thanks

Rear angled Number Plate Holder

Hi Guys

Can anyone tell me if uk spec Cars were fitted with the rear angled Number Plate Holder. Or was the rear Number Plate in the uk simply screwed to the car body.

Re: Entry Level Welding Equipment

Hi Guys

Don’t buy anything less than 150amp gas mig welder. Flux wire is useless. It will not give you a constant clean flow.
Find a used one on ebay. You’re wasting your money buying new if your just doing the odd one off jobs.

Re: '86 Sport Seat Disassembly for Re-cover

Hi

If you're upholstery guy has not done this type of seat before i would walk away and find someone who has. Even if it means traveling some distance. You only want to do that type of job once. It's worth paying more to have a proper job done.

Hi

Why not remove the lenses get them polished and then wrapped in yellow vinyl. That way if you get tired of them you simply peel the vinyl off.

Re: Fuel smell/small leak/pressure in tank after filling

Hi,

Same situation happened to me. Found a couple of pin holes in vacuum pipes at the base of the fuel filler where it joins the tank. This is where dirt builds up coming from the rear tyre. Had my tank refurbished by a company who refurbish radiators.

Re: My muffler is NLA - what to do?

Hi guys.

Why not try liquid metal. It's a two part epoxy which you work together between your fingers. Apply around hole and it becomes solid. You can use it on castings to drill and tap it. I used it on my back box. Ground it down and painted it. Job done.
