Engine all built back up after doing the heads, I had a little dilemma. Couldn't get the dam thing to start once it was all built back up. I was testing the live to coil, and I had 12v there but soon

Well that went tits up. Will have to be knocked back and re done. Had a silicone reaction/fish eyed. This is twice this has happened in the past 2 months. Only became a problem since the new lads moved into unit behind ours. I think they are using valet products and its finding it's way in our bay. Been here 6 years and this has only started since they moved in grrrrrr

Gets right on your nerves when the fish eyes appear I am no body man that’s my fathers thing he’s been at it 30years am sure he adds something to the paint to stop this happening I will ask him later and let you no it’s a similar thing to the plasticiser stuff

An old boy that used to do some paint for me years back said he could machine anything out the paint but silicon in the air from the guy in unit next door who used a very light oil refurbishing Old printing stuff.

Thanks mate, yes we are familiar with all the relevant products we've had our body shop 6 years now, and my painter has over 30 years in the trade, so it's not a new thing to. It's only been happening recently. We dont like using anti silicone or additives, as it can mess with the gloss level, and cause solvent pop etc.. its defo something to do with the new lads behind us.

My "400" had them original, but my GSI didn't. Wanted them also in the GSI so I founded a set on the internet. Think it is an option you got to order together with the car, the Berlinetta had them also.

I think your right herman. There are very hard to find now these are bronze tint, but the green sealed quarters are even harder to find, as I believe they was only on the early b for 1 year.
