    Headlining adhesive

    Hi all, Does anyone have any recommendations for headlining adhesive please? Spray or brush on. After some research I thought either Weldwood, Permatex or 3M 38808, but I can't seem to find any in the uk. There must be some alternatives?

    Roof Antenna

    Thanks for your replies. It was connected to the radio. It's a nice neat aerial but perhaps I'll go with a hard grommet and like the idea of a dab stick on aerial at the top of the screen.

    Roof Antenna

    Can anyone recommend an radio antenna for the front of the roof on my coupe please? I went to refit the original antenna but found the thread on the base is a bit iffy, mainly as it's plastic. Must be an old carphone antenna as it has Vodafone on it. I suppose I should have welded up the hole and got a windscreen antenna. Anyway what's done is done, car is painted now so need a new antenna. The problem is that the footprint of the new antenna needs to be small as we know there isn't a great deal of space there when you have a sunroof. Any recommendations appreciated!

    Black Swan, Ockham

    It's possibly a replica Coune Berlinette, the company that probably brought it to the Black Swan is P and T with the BMW pickup parked next to it. I believe they create them from a standard MGB. The Anglia van opposite is theirs too I think.

    Epoxy primer over gravitex

    I learnt that Gravitex can crack the other day, found out that I had put it on too thick in a few places, and the solvent had got trapped. Passing it over just once is the way to go apparently. Seems good stuff applied properly. 2k epoxy primer is a good idea as it is non porous and would seal it up nicely before top coat.

    Epoxy primer over gravitex

    After some recommendations / advice please! Over the localised repairs under the car / kidney bowls, I am up to the Gravitex stage to reinstate the stoneguard. Over this I understand I should use a 2k epoxy primer before topcoat and lacquer. Which 2k epoxy primer comes recommended? Thanks in advance!

    Front Tow Eye

    That's a very good point....Thanks for the offer but I also have the front lip. I'll have to re think. Mine is also on the other side but has broken before I owned the car.

    Low Profile Trolley Jack

    Thanks for all of your replies...I'll get one sorted. Always good to go on recommendation.
  11. Does anyone have any recommendations of a low profile trolley jack? Getting fed up with struggling with a standard one at the front of the car, and I've not even lowered it yet! Thanks

    Great '73 RSR video

    Not quite an IB but some great footage, and some IBs in the same race.

    Simply Porsche Beaulieu 2018

    I was interested in going but just seen that if you arrive in a Porsche it's £12 but if not it's £25. Ridiculous difference in price. They can jog on. I'll stay at home and carry on putting mine back together.

    3.2 Carrera - now a project!

    You may find the top of the tank is ok. Mine was rusty from about half inch above the seam on and off all over the underside. Bare metalled the whole underside and seam but left the top as it looks old but original. That original coating is tough. I've primed it twice with bonda primer then will stonechip coat it then find a close enough grey rattle can to match.

    3.2 Carrera - now a project!

    I bought some genuine Porsche kidney bowls last year cheaper than aftermarket, so shop around. Don't assume Porsche will be more expensive than aftermarket. I don't think there are any repair panels for the inner wing behind the bumper mount, I made some, it made three sections to get the right shape but quite do able at home. I'll try to find some better photos.
