  1. FWIW The lower section on the Revington kit is shorter than a standard TR 7 one. Stuart.
  2. At least the supply side for those of you still running positive earth Stuart.

    Panel wipe is fine, do get a good quality one as the cheap ones evaporate too quick. Use two cloths, one with the spirit wipe on and a second to dry it off with otherwise all your doing is wiping any oil/grease around and not removing it. This applies to any painting stage too. Stuart.
  4. TBH If the body is off I would replace the pin first as last, then your never going to get a problem again. Stuart.
  5. Yet another reason to stick with points Stuart.
  6. Not applicable for TR4 Im afraid. TR Trader will stamp chassis plates but AFIK no one does the ally body in white plates. Stuart.
  7. Solder sticks here https://www.frost.co.uk/solder-sticks/ Solder paint here https://www.cromwell.co.uk/shop/welding-brazing-and-soldering/flux/standard-fryolux-paint-40-60-500gm/p/FRY8756026S Blow torch https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Dickie-Dyer-EN417-Butane-Butane-Cartridge-Blow-Torch-Gas-Torches/174270500972?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 Butter knife to spread and shape it Butter knife You`ll also need a section of cotton (not polyester) sheet to wipe the heated solder paint to tin the surface. Stuart.
  8. It is a favourite amongst the Mini fraternity. Stuart.
  9. You can recoat Bondarust onto itself any time but rules for recoating are the same no matter what material your using and thats a minimum of scotchbrite scuff unless your going wet on wet. Stuart.
  10. Happy Birthday mate, have a gudun Stuart.
  11. Yep theyre a great choice, I have fitted several and they indeed give so much more access behind the dash. Stuart.
  12. There are three types of tanks, The TR2 one is a 12 gallon whereas the later TR3/3a up to TS60k and then the post TS60K are both 11 gallons but the later tanks are two distinctly differently mounted items. There is a possibility of a another difference which is the Malines built cars which had local content for tax reasons. Stuart.
  13. Glad you decided to have a go, well done for carrying on a dying art. For a good filler if required I use this Upol D Dont forget to clean the leaded areas off after with spirit wipe to remove any traces of solder paint. Stuart.
  14. Its the other way round, its a later rear end and an early tank. Stuart.
