Hi Paul. Thanks – and yes, my Melos is roadworthy (freshly painted as of this week) so I'd be keen to join a run. I'm actually closer than it looks as the N1 postcode is my office address (my car lives outside a lot of the time so I'm a bit nervous about shouting about where it's kept!). Do keep me posted.

Asshole's garage is where you feel at home, where you can admire your bike(s) , car(s),

pictures of what you like apart from mechanical thinks, where you can relax, where you can practice "What happens in the garage stays in the garage", where you can use all the tools you bought because you thought you needed them, where you can escape from what you want to escape from and a lot more.

That is my first, preliminary definition.

Bert

So, no problem but a blessing!!

lol, Finding a 50's Bel-air for sale is almost like looking for a Dutton in Florida. They go for around $50,000. Don't need another Phaeton. Very few compare to mine. She is a truly great and unique Phaeton with those front wings.  I just love my old girl and still cannot believe that I found her on a used car lot over here 12 years ago. Now I think a good Melos would go along great with her and a Harley seems like a fair trade.

Pheaton for a 57 Bel air, or i'll even settle for a 55

Sounds like a great deal Paul. I'm ready!

Sounds interesting, I often find the word extensive to be very closely linked to expensive, I hope it wasn't for you.
I have seen the Santa Pod info, I think it is my weekend to work though so unfortunately can't commit unless something changes closer to the time so I can wriggle out of work

Thanks Paul, that sounds like a plan, I've just gotta get the niggles sorted (random engine cutouts, new timing belt and water pump), will be good to go then

Thanks for the information Paul it's an invaluable confidence builder when you are stuck and going around in circles to be shown a way forward. Will look in detail and get back to you. Once again many thanks

Thanks Paul. Talking to Ade tonight about previous problem of rocking movement of the S2 bonnet which in effect resulted in a lot of bodywork wear. Originally I had a 28/36 ? Weber with pancake filter through the bonnet and the rocking of the bonnet on acceleration and braking wore the bonnet around the carb. This problem has disappeared as the hole is no more as I have now used Twin 40 side draft dellortos . The top chassis members at the front which the bonnet sits on I can probably pad with something and I was considering padding between the aluminium side panels and the inner wing then fitting with a dzus clip. The issue always seems to be the front swing opening bracket and the 4 bolt connection either side of the grille which I can't stop rocking and still make it look neat. My son is a design engineer at Leyland Daf and he has suggested that by using the adhesive strips they use for fixing the cab roofs to the cab this will bond the full length of the front bracket each side to the fibreglass bonnet but I'm not sure. Finally how do you neatly fasten the bonnet at the windscreen end. It was originally sprung clips but these gave a flexible fixing which I am trying to avoid as I am trying to get solid fixings. Any advice would be appreciated

Hah, noisy,sorry thought it had ran out of steam, I found that sidescreens alone make hell of a difference. I am experimenting with small quaterlights, but struggling to get the angle to stay fixed when at speed.

Next silly question :-) wheel diameters?

At 8:39 on April 23, 2015, Steve Kerswell said…

I wonder what Diff you are running? may be a higher ratio would be a cheaper option.

And to think that Dave Taylor en famille are all heading North tomorrow onto the unsalted sheep strewn narrow moorland roads of Cumbria. Ah well best break out another beer and throw another log on the fire.
