I just figured it too...

Click on this icon in advanced reply...
upload1.PNG

Upload your image in the pop up window that appears.

Then you need to go back to your reply box and click the icon again

upload2.jpg

Then click the image filename and it will put the image in the post with ATTACH tags.

hope that helps!

Paulm321 - Very slick looking conversion, Ford Zetec I'm guessing?

I particularly like the plumbing for the radiator. Having toyed with a Land Rover header tank and decided that the plumbing would be a bit too complicated for its own good I'm thinking of using an in-line filler cap mounted at the highest point on the system linked to an expansion bottle.

As that looks like what you've got there, any hints and tips would be appreciated.

Unfortunately I can't take any credit for the conversion as it's not mine, I pinched the picture, as it is what I will be doing to mine but with an MX5 engine and box, I searched Herald engine swop on Google images and several similar things come up, also Retro Rides forum is a good place to research such things!

The thermostat housing from the early triumph 1300 and 1500 front wheel drive has two outlets one of which has a a filler cap (sealed type, not pressure cap) and a small take off pipe leading to a header reservoir.

see http://www.rimmerbros.co.uk/Item--i-GRID008552

also the later mg midgets with the spitfire 1500 engine have yet another version with a top filler plug, two outlets and a take off pipe

see http://www.mgexperience.net/phorum/r...1648193,page=1

These should fit straight onto a herald, vitesse or spitfire water pump and just need the redundant outlet capping off. I used a short length of top hose a nd a propshaft UJ bearing cap and two jubilee clips approx 30 years ago on a spartan.

Angry Photobucket

Davecymru, I am obviously missing something here. Been trying for about 45 minutes to download a test picture, and comes up invalid url when I try to upload it. Think I'm trying to do something wrong, any help on this would be appreciated. Rocker.

Have a look at http://www.howtogeek.com/forum/topic...se-photobucket and see if that helps.

Or failing that, can you post the exact steps you're doing and we can try and see where its catching you out.

Dave

2 sammio german new headlights.jpg

My turn to try and upload a doodle I made based on the original 'German' style bonnet of the Sammio, with headlights moved backwards a few inches and faired in with perspex - and I've given the nose a slight curve as well.

I think this looks good!

YES IT DOES .....There might be life in the old bonnet yet !

Barry who owns the red car with black stripe and Cordite style screen in the gallery has just bought another body with german bonnet and Mike sold him some Datsun 280z style headlight pods to experiment with ....so you are definitely thinking along the same path !!

When the madness of the last years development calms down , I might have a play myself !

I like this too! Nice doodling Alpha!

Although we are building an 'Italian' bonnet Sammio Spyder, I first saw the car with the 'German' bonnet and ordered one before any had been completed with the new Italian style.

There is definitely mileage in this version - with Cordite doors though.

I am glad I am not the only one with a soft spot for this look. I would buy it for the next project (thinking about a Dolomite Sprint engine version).

For God sake Dave, Man Up! after all these years in the Trade, we take this thing in our stride! (read as bottle it, and get a better chassis) See my link, another one started,

Rust is lighter than steel. It will be fine...

I know we all joke about the ends of the outriggers 'falling off' after the DVLA inspection, but it's supposed to be the other end...
