  1. Hi i bought a bonnet rubber- for the rear, ie on the bulkhead by the bottom of the windscreen. A 2 minute job to put it on, but now my (newly painted) bonnet won’t close. Anyone else have this problem? The rubber seal was from Moss. Are there maybe thinner ones I should look for? It seems more of an issue in the centre, near the battery, than at the sides. Without the rubber, the bonnet fits well Thanks mark
  2. Thanks For the offer Steve. I think I probably have what I need now as Waldi kindly sent me some photos. Cheers Mark
  3. Thanks Cameron. Much appreciated
  4. That’s interesting Stuart. Why’s that? Is it because the paint is still curing or something? Thanks. Mark
  5. Cheers Sean And yes: having stripped the hard top, had it bead blasted and primed I realised I was never going to use it even if I refurbished it, so am going to put it on eBay. Unless anyone on here wants it, obviously. The only caveat is that it had some ripples when it came back from the blasters so it needs some work.
  6. Hi I am after an (indoor) , breathable car cover to keep the dust off. I wondered if anyone has recommendations? Thanks Mark
  7. It’s back! Anyone have any photos of the wiring loom routing? thanks. Mark
  8. Hi The car is due back (finally) from the painters this Friday and I’m seeking photos of the wiring loom routing. It’s a 1972 rhd. I have one Stuart kindly put on a prior posting , of the front behind the dash, which is great. I’m wondering if anyone has photos of the rear routing into the boot, and also in the boot. Also inside the engine compartment. Perhaps it will be obvious when I come to fit it, but just in case. Thanks all. Mark
  9. Paul they look great So do they just stick on then? Or are there some self tappers hidden somewhere also? Regards mark
  10. Thanks Waldi. I stole the idea from Ed on here. I’m sure I didn’t execute it as well as he did. But it seems to have done the job. And I have you to thank for the colour choice: I sent signal red having seen photos of your car. All the best Mark
  11. Hi Nick. Thanks. I stole the idea from something I’d seen online. For on and off I just made up a bit of metal between the “tone” button (do you remember those!) and the on off button on the Bluetooth module. And for the volume I just put a rubber band round the “tuner” knob- I,e, the right hand spindle, and the knob on the module. I’m not sure how robust the volume control will be. But to be honest I can adjust it from my phone anyway. Cheers mark
  12. Finally the tub is in paint and back on the car. Very satisfying Have been refurbishing all the million other bits on shelves in the meantime - hence my obscure questions about gloveboxes! I also started a blog - more for my own amusement and documentation than anything else. http://markstr6rebuild.weebly.com This forum continues to be invaluable as I wrestle this thing back together.
  13. Thanks all. Hugely appreciated
