Enjoying the sunshine, wiring the Sierra and buying stuff on ebay (again)
Despite having many big boxes full of odd nuts and bolts I don't seem to be able to find the coarse pitch UNF blots for the seat belts. M10 bolts thread into the holes but are so slack you can nearly wiggle them out
Are these bolts 3/4 UNF Cp or 5/8 UNF CP, does anybody know?
Any one out there willing to put their hopefully standard (as near as possible) Dutton Phaeton (or a Malaga B+) on a show stand for the duration of a show with 20-30 similar early kit cars at Donnington?
The car should be as early as possible with a tidy appearance and on as near as possible contemporary wheels and as close too the factory design as is feasible, it does not need to be a concourse car just tidy. Something to show us all in a good light. Suggestions please.
Clearing up trying to find those elusive bits that have vanished.
Despite many hours and help from Mr H I have passed my deadline and therefore failed to get the Sierra ready for this weekend.
On the bright side I have got a lot of the base work done and much progress made but for the lack of a few bits and a couple of days work its not going to make it. Maybe next week, maybe the week after but it wont be long.
fitting the engine and box, plumbing the brakes and starting the wiring.
Anybody bored out there in duttonland I wouldn't say no to a helping hand (free tea and coffee provided)
