its a nice comfortable聽place to sit

I look forward to trying out the column gear change in time, just sitting in the car and shifting it about it seems intuitive enough, its just your standard H pattern type affair coming out of the side of the steering column聽

and many thanks to @mat_the_cat聽for bringing me a nice 1980's vintage 5ft Fitzgerald light pack complete with original Philips made Fitzgerald branded T12 tube :)

have to say I loved the surrealism of just a old fluorescent fixture being lit up in the middle of nowhere field at 1AM in the morning :)聽(something id love to do using REV in time)

(and many thanks to @beko1987聽for the tin of old Hoover bulbs, I look forward to going through those once I have recovered :) )聽

and it was interesting to see how the fog-lights on @Andyrew's聽 Allegro actually have "Allegro" moulded into them I figured they would of just been an off the shelf/parts bin lucas/BL item

Your welcome on the bulbs! Be interesting to see what you write about them, I'll post it up in the vacuum groups when you do the autopsy! Some have the filament broken but some didn't and I'm sure there's some gen hoover ones in there. Came in a big box of shit from another collector which is always fun!聽

I hope I wiped all the bird shit off the tin...聽

I have to thank everybody for last weekend and the progress made on the Saab 95, Peugeot 404, Carltons and Herald 1200 Coupe.

I have now booked an Auto sparks for the Peugeot 404 to finish the electrics on the 13th June. Then I need to do a bit more to tidy the appearance and at least paint it in primer before I drive it on the road.

The Carlton I have ordered a set of Torx bits as I can't find mine to get the head off.

The Herald will progress when we have time

I would like to get the Saab 95 engine started. I believe we just need to fit:

聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 Radiator and hoses

聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 Fit new clutch master cylinder

聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 Power to the dizzy

聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 Fuel lines

Anybody able to help me for evening or weekend?

@Floatylight聽that looks alright on my tiny phone screen 馃槄 what鈥檚 the finish like in person? Roughly how many litres did you use out of curiosity, and what ratio of thinner? I鈥檝e been considering painting my really rough BX with a roller鈥

It's pretty passable to be honest, I think another coat will do it, will flat it back before putting another coat on. Following this guys method聽

4:1 ratio, used聽 about 800ml of paint so far.

I painted my acadiane with rustoleum, but I sprayed it. I used rustoleum thinners rather than white spirit. It's the second vehicle I have painted - the first was my orange 2cv which was rollered with white spirit thinned rustoleum. I would prefer to use the correct thinners, it's not that much difference in cost.

A bit more Carlton 2.0i estate work tonight,聽@ianbmw聽came round and he took the head of the Carlton. Unfortunately the bores were full of water and engine is locked even with the head off.聽We have filled the bores with oil and will wait a couple of days to see if that helps.
