G'Day All,
Can anyone tell me with the door hinges can they be swapped top to bottom or is there just an upper or lower hinge?
Thanks Darren

G'day All,
I came across an oil filter amongst the bucket of parts it has the alloy lid with AC on it no bracket I was just wondering was the bracket a separate part or was it part of the canasta as it doesn't look like any part is broken off? and what colour should it be as its a nice rusty shade of brown  Grin.

thanks
Darren

G'day all,
Restoring door hinges, has anyone used the rare spares kits? I have found some of my van front door hinges but I'm missing the screws to the A pillars I know originally they were cross heads but I noticed the rare spares ones are a straight slot, just wondering what others have done for these hinges I'm also chasing one more hinge I'll be at the nsw club meeting if anyone can help out thanks.
9  For Sale and Wanted / Parts Wanted / canopy industries seat on: November 02, 2018, 05:19:33 PM

I'm interested to see opinions on the roof support as well, I have a late fe van 1958 with windows and no support between them, when I first got it I thought may be something was missing? in my opinion it does require support in this area but I have heard that when the windows are fitted they become the support? I have looked at a lot of fc vans with large windows and they all have a bit of round bar fitted for support, I can only assume for the early van conversions they had an issue with fitted windows popping out? I reckon they fitted the support bar to correct it for the later vans or was it just the difference between the companies fitting the windows? thanks Darren.

Just in case you change your mind, you can get globes that are up to 30% brighter than standard globes, most of the spare parts shops carry them or you can paint the base of the tail light assembly white or a chrome type paint this helps, we have done this to other smaller tail lights in the past to make them a bit brighter, I personally light the brake light indicator but unfortunately if people aren't paying attention they wont see any form of lighting.

Thanks for the replies I'll be in contact thanks Richard. just wondering in the pic below is this FE Sarasota white/turquoise?

18  Technical Board / Restoration Help / FE paint colour on: October 27, 2017, 10:42:01 AM
G'day All,
My question is regarding the colour turquoise & sarasota white, the paint supplier had the sarasota in his list but not the turquoise so I picked one that I thought was close but the sarasota to me was to green (see pic) I have only ever seen one FE in this colour and for memory it was more of a white with a slight green tinge to it just wondering has anyone painted this colour in recent times or does anyone have a car in these colours so I can get more info as these are the colours I have chosen for my van and would like to get them as close as I can.

thanks
Darren


19  General / General Board / interesting old pic on: October 04, 2017, 12:42:39 PM
G'day All,
I was surfing the net the other day and came across this pic, has anyone seen it before or have any info as to which country etc looks to be a van with ute doors, I have wondered what a van would look like with ute doors and well there you go, I find it interesting that anything you think of to be different somewhere sometime it has been done or someone is in the process of doing it. Cool
