    Column shift linkages disassembly - auto coon

    I done my mk3 zephyr in my early teens,was a cunt when you don't know what a cotter pin (I think its called)/is. Hollow pin that expands,similar to a dyna bolt end? Maybe it has those to hold linkages together?

    Anglia 105e Panelvan

    I'm doing a bare metal resto on a van at the moment for someone. I had one as my first car in 86. Brakes were seized,one bent strut,one guard cut of and replaced(why did POM's braize them on ffs),gutters refab'd,,inner and outer sills refab'd (check your inners lads) and on the hunt for baily channel fittings, steering wheel, and a few other things. Good luck with the van.

    Hell yes,my father in.laws trailer has coils,leafs and shocks. When I took it for a WOF the guy pissed himself.

    Sheeperz MS65 Crown Chitty-Chat

    Good use of wet and dry by taping it together,I've done it for 30yrs. Also get a plastic long board,they mould to panel well for a good contour. Also wet sanding gives a finer finish for sure,the only worry is exposed steel around the prep area. Fkn good job man,I'd be proud of that result.

    re-registering a vehicle

    The repairs needed won't be seen,stupid pom bastard cars with welded on guards and such. I've been in crash work and panel beating for 30yrs but I'm not certified. I'm looking at cutting rust out,replacing with 1mm panel steel,epoxy sealer then underseal. Cheers for the info man.

    re-registering a vehicle

    How thorough is compliance? I'm restoring an Anglia van that needs quite a bit of welding/refabbing inner panels. Do they go over it to make sure its all structurally sound or do they go drilling holes and give them a colonoscopy?

    For Questions Regarding WOFs/CERTs/NUMBER PLATEs

    OK,cheers. I just welded the sills straight over the original ones,and the flares are actually just on the dog leg part of the wheel arch,from the back end of the sill to halfway up the wheel arch,sort of like the statesmans used to have,hard to explain. If the owner calls in a cert guy,and we need to change anything, how long do we have to do it before having to pay the guy again? Cheers for your guys help.
