Re: Removing that wonderful YH carb

I cut a ring spanner down so its only about 2" long. works a treat - the spanner has to be one with a thin profile ring shape

and its certainly had some use in the last 6 months!!

Re: First time corvair owner needing complete floor pan

just my 2p's worth (or ten cents for you lot!) this car is shagged, I bet the bulkhead has gone in it as well, but your problems with the floors is that it looks as if the rot extends under the rear seat base, there are no panels for this area and its an utter swine to remake - some very complicated...

Re: 1964 500 coupe - rusting in the u.k

I put the clarks pans in the front of my new car, and its virtually impossible to see the welds, they go in really nice if you trim them down and with a bit of car a nice job can be done - obviously in the UK we cannot get away with pop rivits, screws etc, they all have to be welded in a correct fas...

Re: 1964 500 coupe - rusting in the u.k

Very impressive work so far! Hows the build coming along? slowly all the floor & bulkhead is done, all the suspension is done, most of it is refitted, it will probably be back on its wheels in a month or so still needs all the repair work around the pillers - though i have bought some parts from am...

Re: build a corvair racer

Re: 64 or earlier corvair race car.

it did sell for a lot, but for a good reason its built to a high spec and because its unusual (over here) it will get, almost, automatic entry into some events that are invitation only (i.e like the goodwood revival) so, for a owner who wants to be seen, and wants to mix in the top circle of histori...
