  1. Or better still replace the little blighters with 10/32 unf 1/2" long capheads & use a long wobble head allen key..........makes everything so much easier
  2. Uumm, I feel another project coming on.....
  3. This is very helpful info, I've never had a split tunnel fitted but had always thought it was to avoid the H frame removal, - this is probably a daft question - but why isn't the joint made further back? - Surely that would enable even a complete engine gearbox removal with the front of the tunnel & H frame still attached, or am I missing something?
  4. I thought the purpose (one of) of the split cover was to avoid the necessity to remove the dreaded H frame - is that not the case then?
  5. Just done this very job - it was tight & I had to tilt the arm slightly an an angle but they came out without damaging anything.
  6. Thats good to know thanks Stuart, I was certainly hoping it would help with the set up on mine.
  7. More completely pathetic & sad than tiresome.......
  8. Not an ideal arrangement - double pole & two relays means the indicators are only live as they should be with the ignition but hazards at any time....
  9. The only man I know who colour coordinates his loft insulation...
  10. Personally I'd do the body repairs first if you're able to. Bracing - yes definitely even if the tub is solid it will still flex a lot if not braced. Once stripped the tub isn't too bad to move - an extra pair of hands makes it easier, a couple of people should be able to lift the tub clear of the rolling chassis. Last time I did it I used the engine crane to lift it off but I can't see why your proposed method wouldn't work if you took it up in stages..
  11. Hi Alf, the twin brake system is a fairly conventional set up which we made ourselves, the master cylinders are fitted side by side with the remote reservoirs and bulkhead connectors for the pipes on a bracket to the side, still very much work in progress..... Heres the bracket after powder coating & during the plumbing stage You may well be right Ian, there's a lot to be said for reusing parts, the screen itself came from Neil - no problems there.
  12. Thanks folks, doesn't sound like a previously encountered problem, I'll not bother getting another, I gave the original a good clean and it's back fitted to the car with the new screen, I'll call TR shop tomorrow if they're open & ask for a refund, they're normally pretty good to deal with. My gut feeling is that it has for some reason its just been made too long...anyway in the big scheme of things at present there's no harm done & cracking on with the rebuild.
