Dutton Kit Cars and their owners
We've kinda hit quiet time of the year for Autotesting as clubs get stuck into organising rallies and things like that instead, so I've revisited a few of the things I'd like to develop on the Phaeton.
1. Double width triple ARB kit - Bought ages ago but not fitted. You may remember I had to scrounge some bushes from a guy to do an event as I noticed the bushes were stuffed the day before, and he only had double width ones. So I had to fit these in…Continue
so how to you get to the bulbs on the rear lights of a sierra .....:-0
I have a complete front window screen from a B+ I broke up a few years ago [chassis rotten] it is complete with frame, glass. hockey stick side brackets and the thin top fame that I assume holds the roof to the frame. Free to take away or in a weeks time its off to the skip. Also have both full length front wings which are in ok condition which are also free or off to the skip.
how much work and cost would it be to raise the suspension on a sierra ???

Been a bit of a mission as our last adventure (Rose & Thistle road rally last August) ended on a transporter with a suspected cracked alloy sump covered in oil and further frustration that the steering kept weighting up on the twisty bits.
Have to admit I shut the garage door on it and got my tinkering…Continue
having problems with my speedo again. dugh. bought a new cable fitted it. had wrong sized screw cap on the back. so made a clip to hold it in. it worked for a couple of miles then died. so to cut a long story short. the cable that snapped had a bigger square drive on the end. so the new one is just spinning in the back of the clock. the speedo is a icknield. so what can i do now. i thought all speedo cables had the same sized square drive.....argh :-(

Today I finally made it, fetching Dorrie from the container to the place where I can work on her. A full rebuild is planned as she is currently in bits, only partly restored. Progress will be rather slow, since it will mainly be evenings or weekends I can work on her for a couple of hours.
What did already happen?
