Re: Tesla / Electric Vehicles

I love that video Barrie, I’ll start work on my own particle accelerator very soon :shock:
I already have the Free solar power so I’d be mad not to. He didn’t say how he used the hydrogen in the car, only how he made and stored it.

Re: Classic cars on the road

I was there, at the back, because I was late due to all the traffic on the road! The set route through London was quite difficult to follow because of the unusually large quantities of congested traffic :shock: It was a good day out though and there are always a nice mix of classics Us on Regents Pa...

Re: Keeping Busy Whilst Self Isolating

Maiden voyage is up to London to join in with the Waterloo Classics protest drive about the extension of the congestion charge. I hope you understand that it will not make any difference.. The mayor wants more money to waste. Politics over. It was a nice day out but there were far too many cars on ...

Re: Keeping Busy Whilst Self Isolating

I love the woodwork Grant. (I’m allowed to watch the video because I’m a Jon). Tears started to well up in my eyes at all the joy and beauty of it all until you used the word ‘jigsaw’. You can’t go-at a lovely piece of wood with a jigsaw. You have to use chisels and other sharp things. Next birthday...

Re: Keeping Busy Whilst Self Isolating

Back to work next week :( Fortunately I’ve done it :D Pro-flo 4 is up and running. I’ve got to drive it around a bit now to let it fully tune. Maiden voyage is up to London to join in with the Waterloo Classics protest drive about the extension of the congestion charge. I’m sure the mpg will be awfu...

Never. All the plumbers in the world use Transporters like the one on the right!

Re: Classic cars on the road

That’s a lovely car Jens, we can’t see it here but #21 has an amazing interior. (I’m still a big fan of the C-V8 though) :D

Re: Restomod Interceptor coming soon

Oh dear, where in the world is this misadventure taking place? I’m wondering where these ‘design influences’ are coming from.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder etc.......

Re: Oh dear

What a real shame, must be devastating to see all that hard work and care go to waste. The rear end of the C-V8 is incredibly weak, just a few flat bits of tin wrapped in fibre glass with no added structural support. This amount of destruction probably didn’t take much effort. Huge amount of work (b...

Re: Classic cars on the road

About 10 years ago this thing burbled passed my house. It looks like it’s been parked here ever since, it could end up as a good source of engine parts. :)
Shame to see it wasting away now.

Re: Machine Tools

Wow, looks like a ferocious dinosaur tied down for the protection of humanity! I’d probably end up using that thing as a rack press, I’d be too scared to use it as a drill

Re: Machine Tools

Sorry Grant, slow reply (busy in the garage) ‘Needs must’ you can’t buy Edelbrock injection for a 383 so I bought the 440 version, snapped up a second hand performer 383 manifold off eBay and drilled it full of holes! I had to make a jig to guide the drill ‘because I don’t have a mill’ :roll: 6AC09B...

Re: Machine Tools

Looks like jolly good fun Grant. I wish I had digging machine and dumper to play with. I actually had a digger on hire last week when the hire shop rang and said they were shutting down the office so they were calling in all the hired plant that day! I wouldn’t normally have minded but I hadn’t quit...

Re: Machine Tools

Love this thread :D I can’t imagine having a garage without a lathe hidden somewhere, it’s surprising how often you need to make a tool of some description to make another job possible. About 10 years ago I saw this lathe standing, in the pouring rain, outside, in a fabricators yard -next to the met...
