My heater fan was squeaking last winter when on for longer than an hour or so. I managed to pickup a new fan around a year ago. It is a real novelty to turn the fan on and only hear the rush of air, the motor is silent! Who knew?

Nice when that happens, the fan on this is quiet but only works on setting 5

Heater fan fixed, I tried Maplins but they couldn't help so I bridged the wired together and the fan now works on all settings.
Finishing servo painting tomorrow and finding a new alternator.

Servo has gone from this

Heater also now fixed, alternator found so next week I will start to put it all back together

At first glance it looked a bit far gone but it was only surface rust. Lightly ground it off and treated it, left it to soak through then cleaned it off. I'm suprised it came up so well.
It will be back on the car on sunday if all goes well

Usually goes like that when the master cylinder has leaked slowly and brake fluid eats through the original paint. (Ironically the brake fluid helps stop it rusting badly!).

More done today before I go to work
The heater foam had perished and I don't want any leaks and whistles


So I bought some more


First rough trim


Used one of my old spray cans of this


All done before a final tidy


And it's the right thickness

The matrix foam has also perished so I fixed that

Still have one more bit to do but that's still with the car so I will do that when I go up there

No foam here



Left my scissors at home so had to trim this with a knife



Only early cars have a small self tapper here



In place


Servo back on



All pipes re-connected


Alarm removed


Dash finished off as I hadn't screwed this back in

Electric mirror wiring is in here somewhere



Some found



Complete. One side isn't working so I will have to check the connections. I have 2 brand new ones waiting to go on the car



Cambelt, tensioner, oil, filters, engine clean and paint, new antifreeze next then put back on the alternator

Electric mirrors now working on both sides so another thing crossed off the decreasing list.
Tidied up the wiring


Made my own fusable link


Just needs insulation tape round the connections


Once i sort the leccy windows most of the interior will be put back

I'm trying to locate something like this to hold up the headlining biscuit once i've re-covered it. The centre of the biscuit will sag otherwise.
Something like this would do or metal strips I can shape and attach the biscuit to.
Any ideas guys?

Isn't that simply sound deadening to stop the roof drumming (rather than to hold the headlining up?)

It is but I need something like it
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Aluminium-...item41787dd93f

This might do it with these push through from the underside to hold it

Are you looking to use trim buttons and create a new/extra location point for the head lining at the top? Or am I missing the point (sorry I'm probably being dim!)

If you are trying to do that then I have quite a neat idea that might work
