Re: Fuel Tanks

I took mine into a plating shop and they put them in the caustic tanks to remove what was left of the factory coating. Then I did the same as you with the POR15 fuel tank sealer. I also had a few pin holes so I repaired it as they say with cloth and the sealer. Seems to be holding up fine.

Re: Hard top restoration

I used a little silicon spray as a lube. Comes in handy when dealing with fitting rubber parts. Maybe a little detergent may do the same and wash out easier when finished. my trim wanted to pop back out for a while with the silicon, but my connectors were a tight fit and held it all in when on.

I am not sure if I have managed to get the pic's back or if photobucket has had a change of heart and it was just a coinsidence of timing. I will see if I can post a new pic.

After that for some unnown reason I then clicked on the post number on the forum where the pics were pos...

I have Tex stainless racing style mirrors on my car. No problems with the mirrors at all and they cost only a little more than the chinesse chrome which are junk really. They fitted them to the doors where the last were fitted but they are there for show only as I can't see out of them. So be carefu...

Nice pulley. I used a aftermarket alluminium pulley and had aluminium welded to it then re-machined. I was going to add a pic through image shack BUT it looks as though they are just photofucket as well, so there you go. Perhaps iof everyone removed and closed there accounts from them something may ...

Rear windows are still available. Check with your local suppiers. Rick at Sunbeam Speciaties in Canada I think has them if that fails. There were some glass windows made in the states. Don,t know if there are any still available.

I would take the radiator out and take it to a radiator workshop. I am sure they would be able to sort it out.

I fitted a Quick fuel Technologies kit. Was fairly straight forward to fit. The return line was fitted to the fuel filler neck with a 90deg bend pointing down as a fair amount of fuel is returned to the tank. I also made up a new tank cross over tube with a larger outlet and I also 1/2 blocked the e...

I have that sized wheels on my car. I have 50 series tyres. I think if you are going for performance tyres you may only get them with side wall height up to 50 series.

I would have thought that if you bought a new hose it would have the spring already there. I would contact one of the sunbeam suppliers and ask them.
