Re: (Not so sweet) Caroline

Compressor, air chisel and ear defenders. Air chisel has been one of my best tool purchases for removing old spot welded body panels. You can always weld a patch into the outrigger if it is damaged

I fitted a stiffener as can be seen in the middle of the inner sill on plasticman's recommendation. I didn't drill out the spot welds on my inner sill, I just cut along the floor...

Re: Fuel Quality and Knackered In Line Injection Pump..Again

Have receipts, guy in the petrol station sees me there a lot, only use that particular company for fuel as they are cheapest on the Isle of Man which may now explain my issues.

Was worried about pump cavitation but it appears that is the least of my problems looking at the fuel filter.

Re: Awning

Think people use that stuff to bond a high top to the van so should be no problem sticking an awning rail

Re: Has anyone had to replace the full side panel?

Look at 'My T25 Restoration' thread. My van originally had a window above that panel but I had a metalwork place make me a panel out of zintec sheet metal. Its not a complicated shape to make for someone who has a sheet metal folder.

Re: My T25 restoration

Hi I cut the lip off the back of my panel on the recommendation of Plasticman on this forum who is a metalwork master. It took a little bit of fettling to get it to fit but once welded and bonded looks fine. There was a gap under the middle of the panel where it bonds to the bumper slam panel but th...

Re: Gearstick extension question

My gearshift is good after the rebuild...for an old van. At least I can find all gears without porridge stirring. I got the gearshift extension as I am fitting saab seats so slightly further to reach for gear changes

Re: Gearstick extension question

So is this the norm with gearstick extensions? 5th gear more or less digs in your leg?

Re: Gearstick extension question

My gearstick isnt bent, its a brand new solid stick which was purchased with the gear linkage rebuild kit. Would like to get the short shifter working but didnt want to make further adjustments after getting my gears spot on.

Gearstick extension question

Hello I have just bought one of these and after fitting it does feel great to have the stick in more easy reach. However I note that in 4th and 5th gear plane that the stick is a bit close to your clutch leg, in fact 5th gear the gearknob is touching my leg. All my gears select fine but just wonderi...
