Re: Hardtop Stainless finisher - Fitting advice

Bill Thanks for the info, I Have read this method before on-line but thanks anyway. It sounds like it is very difficult to fit the Stainless finisher/spreader trim with the window & Rubber in place and impossible to fit the 2 retainer clips :( I've also read a tip on the Tiger Facebook pages of how ...

Hardtop Stainless finisher - Fitting advice

Hi All I've recently managed to pick up a good condition Stainless Finisher/Spreader for the rear window rubber on my recently purchased Hardtop (Photo attached). Can anyone advise the best way for me to fit it without damaging it! I can see that it overlaps the window rubber on the outer edges and ...

I now have a spare Late Alpine/Tiger Hardtop suitable for a Brave Restoration or breaking for spare parts. It is complete with all windows and catches apart from the rear window Rubber Seal and stainless finisher. Very Rusty along all the lower sections and corners though, but at least you know what...

Re: Mystery Hole

My RHD Tiger also has this hole blanked off with a Grommet, could it be for the Throttle Linkage or Cable on a LHD Tiger maybe?

Andy

Ok, I will get some and give it a go.

I believe the rear and side Windows are Perspex on the Hardtop, not sure what the material is for the Rear Window on your Soft top, PVC Maybe?

Got to be worth a try for the cost of a bottle, will google for a supplier?

Cheers

Re: Hardtops How much?

Andy Thanks for the Info, I will give it a try? New Windows are £120 so it's got to be worth a bit of elbow grease! I was watching an episode of Wheeler Dealers last night and Tim used some Toothpaste and a tooth brush to clean some faded rear lights on a VW they were restoring and they came up like...

Re: wipers

Here's a tip I've read about in Classic car weekly in the past Assuming Tigers/Alpines are the same as most 60's car (They more than likely are?) and also If it's not been done before? Remove the wiper arms/blades and mark the positions of both wiper spindles, then you can remove the motor drive gea...

Re: Hardtops How much?

A couple more.

Can anyone advise if the rear screen can be cleaned, I've been told T-Cut may work?

Also anyone have a rear Stainless finisher for sale?

Re: Hardtops How much?

I collected the hardtop on Good Friday and I'm very happy with the top apart from a slight adjustment needed to the rear Boot Hinges (Hopefully) so the pins on the rear lower mounting brackets engage a bit better with the holes in the hinges? I also ideally need a new rear screen (The old ones gone ...

Re: Hardtops How much?

Ash I ran a magnet over all the lower sections and Header rail and good solid metal, no doubt it will have been repaired to some of these area's though and I can't really go stripping things down to look under rubber seals, etc! I took my car in for the M.O.T. Re-test this morning and got a pass :D ...

Re: Hardtops How much?

Yes, I know what you mean Ash, I've been fighting with my conscious since I viewed it!! :shock: The trouble is I've made up my mind I want an original one and the choices are limited unless I'm patient and get lucky. One sold recently on E-Bay (Still listed I believe) from the USA in similar conditi...
