Re: "Setting about an Interceptor" - G Series repairs.

This time a year ago I was anticipating showing some pics this month of my car getting some lead stuck to it. The terrible pandemic we are enduring has curtailed that until a later time so a couple of alterations I thought may be of interest. 223B87D3-B17E-4F87-A51B-C6506A54F95B.jpeg 0B163E6B-BB2C-4...

Re: Jensen Factory postcard

I am sure I used to go down there prior to the track being recovered if I have got it correct looking at those overhead pictures. The old line from Walsall-Dudley-Stourbridge had a branch off it with a steep incline to Pensnett. At that time it was a very busy route as the Round Oak works was also s...

Re: "Setting about an Interceptor" - G Series repairs.

It’s in a semi-dandy condition Mr Grantchester!
Insulated around the column entry point but brittle old plastic by the manifold is quite rightly a concern.
Will be attempting to clear as much heat from under the bonnet but will now be thinking about a little sleeve of some sort.
Thanks for raising it.

Re: "Setting about an Interceptor" - G Series repairs.

Refurbed the steering column and replaced the old u/j’s with Aston parts (surprisingly no too expensive).

Smaller than the stock items and sealed so no greasing to worry about,I reckon a little more pleasing to look at?

Re: "Setting about an Interceptor" - G Series repairs.

The windscreen area wasn’t that lead’y Grant where as other areas on the car had an abundance of it. I guess as they were all put together in jigs relying on hand and eye no body was like the next one so lead’y areas can differ. I only wish that I had the skills to weld,my role is to get things read...

Re: "Setting about an Interceptor" - G Series repairs.

Thanks Grant and Kev,
I try and amuse myself during the process by doing things like comparing the curves of front and rear screens...
It’s a crazy but wonderful pastime this old car lark!!
