    Bruce -

    Thanks! That would be great if you can turn some rivets for the lid and trigger. You're right, they are pretty small. Don't drive yourself crazy if it's not an easy job.

    I can plate them with zinc.

    I have attached an "anal" PDF of dimensions and photos.

    Looks like determining the length is the hardest part of the task. Better too long than too short....

    Sorry Colyn for the non-appearance of the promised collar. My friend with the 3d printer has been too busy to get to the revision requested - I too will be interested in the outcome.

    I was quoted 84 for a set of minted 1144 shoes by minted directly, same for the pads.

    A few years ago Frank Cronin discovered a screen printed 'DM7' which was placed on the brake back plate
    on his very original TF. Frank accurately reproduced this item and applied it to his TF during a total rebuild. Our current TF1500 also has 'DM7' on each
    back plate.

    Some time ago I found a Website which indicated that DM7 was the Ferodo rating for brake linings of the TF era. ...

    I've always been an Anglia fan, My first car was a 1962-105e , I sort of collected several of them over a couple of years until my dad wanted his shed back,the best one ended up with 1600GT cortina engine/bullet c/r gearbox, discs etc-Bored and sleeved the block to take Volvo (just for Greybeard) pistons which took it to 1800cc,good car and went like the clappers
    Originally we only...

    Besides my Frog I drive a 1965 Ford Econoline (my "new" car) and in the shed is a 1960 Anglia basket case.

    Cars that I would like to have

    Mk I Escort

    Mk II Capri

    73-73 Alfa GTV

    Datsun 510 coupe



    It looks like someone has a lawn mower fetish ;-)

    Looks like you need a cricket pitch to go with that one!

  • richard b14 August 2020

    Tim,

    Here is a couple of pics of mine - the wrinkled belt is due to pulling the passenger seat forward to get in for the pic ! - they do have a tendancy to slip off the seat when not in use and need retriving from behind the seat.
    Should have rotated images - sorry !

    Hope that helps - Heritage shell but I think the anchorages were as per the original '72.
    Belts are Securon - lo...

  • Tim Lynam14 August 2020

    Cheers Nigel,

    Is yours in a similar position on the wing, it just seems far to close to the seat to be in the correct position?

  • Steve Simmons14 August 2020

    Probably fair for the work involved versus doing it yourself. But still, that's nearly ten grand of cost added to a restoration and you haven't even painted it yet. I'll be facing this dilemma in the near future on the TC I'm restoring.
