Hiya Dave,

I'm not in Cumbria yet, but on my way back soon! Seeing your car was what made me sign up. Had a good look around this site and thinking an on-the-road project might just be the way to go. What would you recommend?

Thanks Dave....  I've bought myself a Series 1 Phaeton which is being dropped off on Wednesday. Needs a bit of fettling but all there. It currently has a 1600 crosssflow installed along with a 4 speed manual gearbox.....However.....I have a spare Lotus 907 2 litre twincam and 5 speed box which are itching to be slotted in...in the near future... ;)

Looking forward to open top motoring again.  Mike

So if you fancy a chat and you're in the area call in and see us. Always a great Northern welcome and proper Northern ale (Southerners can be catered for, let us know you're visiting and we'll get you a can of Courage Best Bitter or Watney's Red barrel in the chiller)

Getting ready for spring

Posted on February 12, 2017 at 21:37 10 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 2 Comments

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…


Steve K's rebuild

Posted on March 15, 2012 at 21:36 11 Comments

Thought I had better start a blog to count down the days on the rebuild of Steve's Phaeton. Well tonight the plan started to come together, we now have wipers (2 speeds Whooa), screen washers, a dashboard ready for the clocks and gauges. The to do list just got shorter. 15 days to go...

My Phaeton Seats

Posted on January 15, 2012 at 13:25 4 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…
