Yup, Paul, you are correct. And, there are a changes coming-up for Oxford1360. Once they are sorted I should have a good-sized garage close to the house from ~October. Progress should be much swifter from then on......

Gary, apologies for my lack of clarity. If you could let me have a price for two of the humps that you have supplied for the passenger above.

Thank you.

Thank you ...it has Landrover type slam latches and a modified Landrover dovetail catch ...I have reduced the latch area to minimize rattle .

Oxford , if you wanted 2 humps supplied separately with the same excess around them as the loose one in the picture , giving you plenty of material to 'graft' ...a 6 oz. layup and finished in grey gelcoat ......then we would be looking at 140 the pair including well wrapped postage via parcelforce.

Interesting idea any photos?
I tried a similar arrangement on the G-46 with-out success. The doors never felt "firm" and would open with the body flexing. I ended up using a pair of small bear-catches from CAR BUILDER SOLUTIONS.
They were cheap and worked well. :icon_idea:

I can take some pics when young Mr. Jeff has finished painting it as latches are off at present .....they are pretty firm ...the doors don't flex much , the new uber hinges have tightened it up ......

Bear claws are really good , and you can get those door drop latch things too , to locate a door and hold it ...the ones convertible cars and lorries tend to use on the rear bodies where doors flex... this sort of thing ....

They are about 5 or 6 each from memory ...

V5c Document back from DVLA a few days ago ...all present and correct . Triumph Formosa Sports in red ..no inspection required , so Happy Days !

Jeff sent me some pictures today ...I know Graham has seen the full set , so thought I would put a couple on here ...

The car has been sprayed in Polyester reface ...this will be sanded back and then the car will be treated to some 2 pack high build primer and sanded again ...

Jeff also masked the whole of the underneath of the car , engine bay , floors etc...so no overspray should make its way onto the restored chassis ...

Car looks good. :cool:

Although one of the photos may have accidentally broken the forums nudity rules! :eek:

I'm sure all the prep work Jeff does will result in a great finish.

Good luck, Paul. :)

Fantastic! Looks super.

Barber 9th September 2017 06:43

Wow

micky1mo 9th September 2017 08:10

Very pretty, nice colour choice . :eusa_clap::eusa_clap:

Morning Jeff excellent work again , Geoff .

Another great finish, if you want your car to have a high resale value then you need to spend big on the paint.

It would be nice to get a ball park estimate for having a GR120 and a 250 swb painted by Jeff.
It will give prospective builders an idea on what to expect for a top finish.

I was thinking the same, earlier today.

Jeff - Great work as usual, the car/paint looks amazing. :cool:

Cheers, Paul. :)

Mixed emotions about getting her back and fitting her up .... excited and nervous ...

Amazing is understated
