  1. I've used Envirostrip in the relatively recent past for my 1949 Land Rover, having used SPL for other panels on a TR4. They both caused problems with panel folded edges and seams etc, and I wish I hadn't used them. For my current TR3 racecar project, I had the chassis, body tub and all panels glass bead blasted and primed by a local firm (just south of Stratford-upon-Avon) who do a lot of very high quality work on expensive classics - flat floor E-types short wheelbase Porsche 911s etc. They had previously blasted the front end of a TR4 for me. I'm very pleased with the outcome. David

    I must use standard calipers on my cars due to FIA and race series regulations. I do use race fluid that has a higher boiling point along with very non-standard pads.

    Jaguar XJ6, later Jaguar E-Type, Volvo P1800 and I think a TVR of some description. if you decide they are what you want, I’m happy to post them to you, unless you know someone else who is going and can transport them for you. David

    I have a pair of Girling 3 pot calipers for sale. Literally just refurbished by Bigg Red. I collected them yesterday. These are a straight fitment onto a TR without any modifications. If you’re going to the International in Stratford, let me know and you can see them - I’m local. David
  5. I’d have suggested send them back and buy properly reconditioned ones....... David
  6. I’ll be collecting the refurbed calipers from Bigg Red just before the Stratford International Meeting. If anyone wants a set of these calipers, or a pair of 3 pot Jaguar ones which are a straight fit on a TR, or a pair of type 14 calipers, please let me know and I will bring them with me for you. David
  7. Dave, I’d suspect from any MGB parts dealer. David
  8. Probably the wrong place for this topic/post. However, I have this one cluttering up the workshop and am open to any sensible offers via eBay. I’d love it to go to a new home. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lucas-ammeter-Range-Rover-classic-Triumph-Morris-Austin-50-0-50/254270361591?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 if it’s of interest, please make an offer, whatever you feel it’s worth to you. David
  9. Hi John, I can’t help with these items and I don’t know who can. However, if the rubber components are NOS, won’t they be ‘past their best’? David
  10. I have a load of original Girling 16P brake calipers that are about to be refurbished by Bigg Red. I have had one pair finished in black to go behind the black wire wheels on my BRG racecar. my plan is to have these plated (not painted) in either the original type gold or silver. There will be new pistons and seals etc. Basically, they will be fully reconditioned and ready to fit. The point of this post is to ask that if anyone is looking for a pair and wants then done in a particular finish, let me know as I will be taking to be done next week. Price depends on finish. Final point is that these are original castings and not the repro ones!! David
  11. My only question is what original bits are you missing? Revington is correct in that you need the matching gauge and sender if you are to use original parts. David
  12. Chris, I'm in Southam, Warwickshire. Very close to where Honeybourne Mouldings are based. Just up the road from the motor museum at Gaydon. David
  13. I’ve got a number of TR6 rad shields. David
