  1. Today
  2. So after digging around on this site (opelgt) found out this tube ( internal speedometer gear oil transfer tube) is to ensure oil gets to the Speedo drive gear as the tube is made of steel (press fitted) and the casing is aluminium they expand at different rates so has a habit of falling out.any one with a five speed box I would advise looking into this Google search "getrag vibration" site name opelgt.page 1&2 there is a fix for this with pic's but text is in german.from what I can work out it's just a bit of over engineering with poor foresight.
  3. Yesterday
  4. With the wet sanding of the primer coat just make sure the car is bone dry before top coat, if we have a really hot day leave it outside to bake in the sun for a few hours or if not thoroughly run over the car with a heat gun before progressing, the last thing you want after all your work is microblisters under the paint a few months after finishing.

  11. So after having a total nightmare with the front shocker bushes we finally got them in tonight with a few inventive techniques! Been tied up with another car I am building which is doing my nut in hence why it has taken a bit of a back seat. Anyway a few bits left to paint and then it will be the next stage which will be zinc coating and powder coating all my bits.
  12. Taking a little break matey?
  13. I sanded down those three minor imperfections this evening, then wet sanded the whole car again. This was spurred on after walking around the car with an LED strip light and literally inspecting ever inch of primer/bodywork. I found four more tiny things to correct (basically pin holes in filled areas), that were then addressed with stopper. So after sanding these down tomorrow evening, I should be able to start masking up again... I didn’t bother to take any photos as the car doesn’t look any different until you get you nose on it! Lol

  26. Last week
  27. Hi Ian told you she was ticked off.cheers Andy if you could have a look see what you think.that was the same forum I found I think it's purpose is to catch the oil flicking off the gear cogs and drips down onto them again (can you check its not feeding an oil way) or to fall off and try and destroy the gearbox think I dodged a bullet there.close but no cigar.oh yeah the oil that came out had a high viscosity and the unmistakable smell of ep oil.
