  1. Hello Jon. You could try Southbound Trimmers (supply only or supply and install) or Lakewell in the Netherlands for supply only.
  2. Saw this done at JZM using the "pry with large flat screwdriver" method - followed by the "pry with even larger flat screwdriver" method. Worked just fine! The plastic inserts are also inexpensive - I did all of mine and the o rings the same time.
  3. That looks fantastic Phil.
  4. I thought etch was the golden rule on aluminium - be interested in other opinion.
  5. If Pelican chat is anything to go by it is possible to do it with the engine in, albeit at high cost in terms of skinned knuckles and swear box contributions.
  6. I would also think worth looking air fuel mixture, it's pretty easy to test and fix on an SC but I don't know for a 3.2.
  7. They were £60-70 not that long ago!
  8. Any comments on experiences or preferences with rotisseries / dollies for body restoration? Currently I have neither, but a rotisserie seems like it could make sense for an upcoming project.
  9. It’s just down the road from me, happy to go and take a look if anyone’s interested.
  10. I don’t know what clock that timer is connected to, but three times it was extended by a couple of minutes near the hammer. The last five minutes took ten minutes...?!
  11. Seems good. See what turns up, hopefully will fit a 911!
  12. For future readers the last time I had dealings with Douglas Valley they remarked that they couldn’t recall when they last took a G body 911 in. Times have moved on. If their ebay listings are the measure of the classic 911 parts stock they now hold I would not be hopeful of finding very much at all there now.
  13. The funnel that unscrews off the crap one?
  14. I also like it Phil. As you’ve pointed out the conventional flexible spout option is rubbish: usually needs tying to the lid hinge, moves around generally looking like an accident waiting to happen then the tendency is to overfill the top part because the flow rate is so much slower than it could be.
