Thanks Dave.

I will nosey around the site to get my bearings. I may need to get my hands on a legerra building manual at some point.

What is the normal protocol - do you keep records of Chassis numbers and engine numbers for historical info and knowledge of cars still about ?

Cheers Jordy

Thanks Dave. Hope to do some brain picking amongst you lot in the future! My Melos is a bit sad at the moment having sat unused for a few years but now I'm retired I hope to get it back mobile to enjoy again. Probably need a bit of help with the body though, it's been well mucked about with at the front (maybe had a frontal thump before it came to me). I'd like to put it back to its proper shape but it's going to take time!!

Getting ready for spring

Posted on February 12, 2017 at 21:37 9 Comments

Started getting Daisy in shape for the coming year. found the ignition switch fault, the weight of the keys being in the steering lock caused the ignition to cut off if you accelerated to quickly. So decided to bin the lot, steering lock and all. Going to wire in a simple key switch. Already got a kill switch and battery cut off fitted.

Found the bad vibration at 67 mph + rear UJ is knackered, this as also done for the diff seal and rear gearbox seal. thank goodness I don't have to…

Rebuild started

I got started on the rebuild today. here a tip for anyone don't use coach bolts to fasten your bumper on, after 10 years they don't want to move, and what made me use a 4" one at the centre of the rear bumper? que angle grinder...

Looks like the rear drivers wheel arch has had a fair old knock. all crazing cut back with Dremmel and diamond tip, then all body wiped down with thinners to shift any trace of polish. first fill with flexible filler. That can have a couple of days to cure…

My Phaeton Seats

Posted on January 15, 2012 at 13:25 3 Comments

Decided to have a play this morning with the Phaeton, as she has sat on the drive now for 2 months without even being started.

So after connecting the RAV4 defibulator manged to bring her back to life, and sounding good too.

the plan was to remove the drivers seat to see what mod's I would need to make to get the Westfield seats in. The Westie seats are 350 mm wide on the base and the back, the space I need to squeeze them in is 340 mm Hmmmm! this is going to be a little more…
