Re: how many Marinas left in Ireland?

Like the damask tc saloon. There was one up for sale a while ago but can’t remeber if this is the one?
Not many late 1.5mk TCs left and looks to be in nice condition.

Re: MOT exception

I will continue to have an MOT as its a good chance to get it up a lift and check the underside.

Thirsty work removing dents, lovely cup as well even hooks on your tool box ;-)
I can see why he was in a hurry to scoot off, I expect he needed the loo!

Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

Washed mine on Sunday for the first time in 18 months, then took it for a drive in the sun and then tucked it back in the dry with the cover on.
Probably the second time it has been washed with soapy water as it was very dusty and had a film on the out side.
Will get a nice polish and service soon.

Re: 71 TC Coupe on Car and Classic

The Britax Weathershield sunroof was fitted 2 years after the car was built. When BL fitted vinyl roofs often the metal underneath was only in primer sometimes. But re trimming the Jubilee roof did cost a bit but the vinyl had to come down the A pillars to look right.

Re: 71 TC Coupe on Car and Classic

As i said lots of wasted vinyl as the sunroof was trimmed to match but could not use the piece cut out for the hole as it would be to small so another piece was used. Sunroof was done by another person as it required a fair bit of skill.

Re: 71 TC Coupe on Car and Classic

They often stopped just below top of windscreen to save on vinyl material. Loads of vinyl was wasted on mine for rear and front screens plus the sunroof

Re: About to tackle the gearbox, anyone got any tips?

If you strugle to get the spacer out of the first motion shaft try filling the spacer hole with grease and tap the main shaft in to where the grease is as this may hydraulic the spacer out. This technique is used very sucessfully on the spigot bear in the fly wheel. Saves damaging surfaces trying to...

Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

Gave car a good check over as it has not moved for 6 months and hopefully it will be coming back home next weekend Yey!
Brakes and clutch perfect and got oil pressure up before firing.
Needs a good clean and hopefully I can use it on good winter days.

Re: TC Jubilee 1973

Are so your the new owner of Dave Richardson's Jubilee which was fully restored! The one with the white stripe tyres.
That one should be a nice solid motor now.

Re: TC Jubilee 1973

What torque are you using to do up the wheel nuts? Only should be about 25 to 30 foot pounds from memory as they should not flatten the natural spring cone in the pressed wheel as this helps keep the wheel on the hub. I thought Rimmers had them? What Jubilee have you got or what is the number plate?...
