Jason, Looks like a top job, congratulations. I noticed in the earlier pics that your van had what appear to be sliding windows in the front, if you haven,chucked them or sold them I would be interested, as I only have plain glass in my panelvan & I want to fit a rear seat, they would be good for ventilation.

Hi Kevin, Does this mod mean that the steering column is now shorter? & if so, by how much.
Did you retain the gear stick tube & 3 on the tree or are you floor shift?

Hi Craig, Go to a large plumbing suppliers (not hardware) with the outside diameter. You used to be able to get a stainless steel doover that closely resembles the original (take picture or sketch) the only catch is that the inside diameter will probably be too small & have to be cut to suit. I have an original if you want to borrow it to show to the suppliers.

Howie, Up until around 18mths - 2 years ago you could still order 6.50 x 13" crossplys over the counter at most tyre dealers, I was told they were still in manufacture then for caravan builders.
You may still be able to get them, if not, an offshore brand may be available. Good Luck!

Hi Stinky, From memory when I did my FE I was advised to use a stubby straight edge screwdriver & hammer, working very slowly & carefully, starting at the front.

Once you get it started you only have to tap it here & there, be extra careful at the corners & in the middle.

Good luck! Regards Gary. Wink

For what it's worth, I have 2 NOS tail light surrounds in etch primer, the best way to describe the colour is yuk!
sort of a dull, dirty green/grey, one of them has a few slight pimples along one edge & I got them from a GMH  dealers shelf about 10 years ago & he reckoned that they would chrome up a treat because they had never been chromed before.
On the other hand I also aquired from the same bloke a completly assembled NOS tail light with a chrome surround, ready to attach, no comparison, it's beautiful.
If your item is a NOS surround Slim, it should chrome up well, or indeed paint up well providing it has led a sheltered life out there in NOS land.
Regards Gary

1615  General / General Board / Re: Recent FE purchase on: October 05, 2002, 07:34:29 AM
Hi Mooky, Maybe the car has had an accident at some stage and the front subframe assy was changed, hence the different number.

Congratulations to LES & LEON on their trophies.

With so many stock and modified entrants present on the day, it's great to see 2 vehicles at opposite ends of the spectrum attracting sufficient attention to each pick up an award.

Regards from Zulu.
