    ............ a plasma cutter is nice Martin
  2. Health.....

    Take Care and get well soon. Martin
  3. Flanges were o.k., I hope it will not leak. Can tell in 1? 2? years from now. Preparations for the rear end done. But this week on business trip and then 2 weeks holiday
  4. Took the screen out, needed only 5 minutes. Measured the depth of the seat where the screen sits. It varies between 19 and 16 mm. Therefore it cannot sit properly, Top LH Corner 16mm, midle a pillar RH 19 mm. . Mounted the screen again. Before inserting the finisher strip I used a lot of sealant and then inserted the finisher with the recently invented knee technology.
  5. I filled the gap wth a foam sponge cord. Yesterday evening I inserted the Chrome finisher. It was a sod. I needed THREE hours to get it into the rubber seal. With the feet on the bulkhead, knee pressing a cork block against the finisher and mm by mm opening the groove in the rubber seal with a screwdriver then pushing the finisher in. I was soaked with sweat. All my fingers are aching today. Getting old. No not getting, I am.
  6. put the front window (Bastuck) into the car with a (James Paddock) seal. There was a gap at the RH A pillar (complete length).
  7. Yes vertical link Rotoflex. You see nicely where the PO left the marks of the hacksaw. I milled it down to 74,5mm width. The narrow ones I measured where between 74,1 and 75,3mm. Ineresting that the thick washer is not shown in any of the parts catalogues. I have 4 left from dismantled vertical links. Thickness 3,22 ... 3,35 mm. Martin
  8. .... and some sundays work
  9. Now it is a real Vitesse
  10. Change, Inevitable Change...

    very happy to donate again. Thanks for all your efforts. Martin
  11. @ JC: will inspect the Estate in Birkenfeld, have a good trip @ Alan: thanks, but silk purse? hmm, already by far too many trade offs done if you have a closer look. But I agree it should be a nice car for travelling when ready Martin
  12. Sorry, outside gap no longer for sale. After changing the LH hinge from the new stanpart to the used stanpart one and using somepiece of Wood and a hammer, now the outside gap is o.k.ísh. rear hatch fits nicely at the upper and lower rubber seal. It fits nicely at the RH seal BUT not at the LH side. Why? Martin
  13. Nick, seems I have a gap to sell. RH side fits very well, but ...LH I have no idea what´s wrong. And to delight me, while mounting the reverse lamp, the glass from the Vitesse MKII reverse lamp slowly slided out of the lamp and via the chair fell to the floor. O.k. dustpan, handbroom, when is the next Stoneleigh? Martin
  14. next challenge did the C pillar shrink?
  15. Consensus seems to be that the 7/8 roll bar is too strong. However I have it in my GT6 and Im yery happy with it. 5,5 x 13 with 175 / 70 / 13. These are semisports thus veeery sticky. Quite neutral in curves and it does not hmmm how to express "lean on the nose" ????? Martin
