Hi Steve

Hope you are well. Attached are the latest pictures from the restoration of VYA 2G - the leather has been treated and new seat cushions made up (the old ones were dried out and irreparable).

Regards

Mark

Hi Steve

Not sure if this is the kind of thing you want but I have attached some pictures of my rebuilt engine at Appleyards. Have also posted some stuff on the members cars section of the Forum.

Hi Steve

Some pictures of my car (VYA 2G) at Appleyards without the engine! After about 180,000 miles it was starting to cause some problems (not starting, running hot, etc) so the engine is out and being rebuilt whilst the engine bay is tidied up. After so many miles and no major work other than servicing and oil changes it needs a new crankshaft and two new connecting rods in addition to all the normal bits and pieces and machining.

Regards

Mark

Hi Steve


No real updates - the car soldiers on - it recently had welding on the  rear axle and rear wheel arch and a new window winder motor and earlier this year had it second steering rack and pump in 4 years! To be honest it could really do with a good sort out bodywork wise as it is a bit bubbly along the seams on the front wings and a rear wheel arch but it is very difficult to find a bodywork person who will just take the car in and paint it to a good standard -  as opposed to making promises, taking it in, dismantling it, putting in the back of the shop for 3 years and then giving it back with the paint full of dirt and a massive bill! Given this rather negative experience of body restorers I am just getting on with driving it and enjoying it scruffy though it may be!

In fact it performed faultlessly on the last trip to Europe - Lincoln, Norfolk, Nancy, St Gotthard Pass, Milan, Genoa, Tournon, Calais, Lincoln. The only problem was that someone stole the nose badge while it was parked overnight in Nancy. It also has horrendous wind noise at 80mph from the window gaps - the window frames have been adjusted - I might invest in some new seals next year to see if that sorts it.


Thanks

Mark

Hi Steve,


I see there are some blanks on the record for 116/3328. Some of these I can remember:


colour Thunder Grey (that's the Jensen term for that colour)

Interior Red

original reg: VYA 2 G (that is the original)


I may be able to look up some other details.
