Hey Dave,

Thanks for the welcome...again.

Its Toby Fitzgerald, I joined 3 or 4 years ago but for some reason th ning seems to have deleted my account. I tried to recover my password and it says that there is no known account tied to that email. Wasn't sure how to get a message to someone on here so just remade to account lol.

I have the green Phaeton 2 that used to live at my grandads until he passed away and now its at my parents, my posts about my restoration were sporadic. Due to Covid and the various lock downs and tier restrictions I haven't been able to travel to my parents to work on my car much this year hence why I haven't said much.

Any ideas on how/if I can get my old account back?

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

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

Posted on September 12, 2013 at 21:27 1 Comment

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…
