Re: Protective tape removal from NOS bumpers

Thanks for the info - thinners did the trick. A bit (well, a lot really!) of elbow grease combined with a coarse cloth, and it came off.
A nice shiney chrome bumper now!

Re: Wipers

All the models in the 2000 / 2500 range have wipers that self park.

Re: Door adjustment

I understand from what I gleaned many years ago that after shims had been placed behind the hinges (if required), the tweaking the top frame of doors in moderation on the production line was an accepted practise to get the doors to fit something like. But manufacturing tolerances then were a far cry...

Protective tape removal from NOS bumpers

As the title suggests, I am about to fit a new old stock rear bumper to my PI. It is covered with the original woven protective tape, which is proving to be a right bas***d to remove. The outer fabric has more or less come off, but it is the black coloured adhesive that is being very stubborn. Upto ...

Re: Strombergs / SUs

The basic difference is the orientation of the mounting studs for the carbs on the inlet manifold. HS6's have four mounting studs per carburettor, whereas HS4 only have two per carb. The other issue is that Stromberbs also only have two stud mountings per carb, but they are at a different orientatio...

Re: Tatton Park - Classic and Performance Car Spectacular June 2018

I really think that the right car will stand out as soon as you see it Will. I think it is better to find a car with the odd rust blemish but the car is genuine and original (as long as it isn't severe or particularly deep rooted) than a car that looks near perfect but has had paint or body repairs ...
