  1. Today
  2. To be fair, it didn't have the air intake on top of the engine cowl in that photo either, I was working on that part yesterday πŸ™‚
  3. Yesterday
  4. Arse! I put something in my reply about not being able to see the canopy, then thought that was far too geeky so removed it before i posted.....I should've known better πŸ˜‰
  5. Quite straight forward Get the front up on axle stands and remove wheels, arch liners, lights. Remove front under tray Remove inspection panel Remove all bolts under the inspection panel, under lights and at the bottom of the front wheel arch Then remove bolts from inside front clam wheel arch to lower bottom wing trim ( watch out for shims) Now either side of car open door and loosen bolt holding clam to bottom wing trim. this doesn't have to be fully removed just loose and watch for shims Last bolt is under the bracket screwed to the clam this needs to be removed. The clam can now be lifted but disconnect the ariel lead and the upper trim panel push switch.
  6. updated as requested Pete
  7. You need to get your calendar to April, Ray. It’s my car, well.....was
  8. A couple of knee pads would’ve been cheaper and quicker than taking out your floor.
  9. Last week
  10. Yes...and no Leigh. The plans I'm working to are indeed for the F4U Corsair but I'm converting mine to be a F2G Super Corsair which has a bubble canopy. 9 out of 10 😁
  11. Very cool colouring 😎
  12. Thank you for the compliments. Kept me from drawing on the walls for a while. Phil is right it does lift the engine bay and doesn't look too shabby if you don't stop and look for too long. Not sure how long it will last although they are enamel paints. If anyone fancies their own bit of colouring-in during lock down I can post the paints and brushes off to you. πŸ™‚
  13. If you do a search on here there was a thread on batteries about 3 years ago i think, and I'm sure Martin R found a lithium ion one for about Β£150?
  14. That looks ace! You should offer to do other people’s cars at runs and events - with the added bonus that the paint will dry quickly when the engine is hot πŸ˜‚
  15. It's very obviously a Vought F4U Corsair! Nice work.
  16. Top 'colouring in' Will and really gives the engine bay a nice lift πŸ‘
  17. Great job Will looks Fantastic
  18. I've regressed back to "colouring in".
  19. well it's not a focker! 🀣 sorry Phil couldn't resist that. seriously it's looking very good πŸ‘ but get it off the Lotus πŸ™‚
  20. I've been making steady progress on my latest scratch-built Correx r/c slope soarer. It's quite a distinctive shape so no prizes for guessing what it is. Sadly the Lotus has been reduced to a workbench these days 😁
  21. Odyssey PC 625 smaller than the popular PC 680 and better cranking ability.
  22. Brilliant πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  23. Get that post it note removed Ray - there’s a tasty looking motor underneath it, albeit bogey green ...!
  24. be careful Dunc she will want running water next 🀣
  25. June has wanted an eye-level grill for ages........sorted!
  26. 🀣 think it was January and the way I'm driving I might get round by November 🀣🀣🀣
  27. No idea, and it was a very strange sight. I just thought if it made them happy then fair enough, their place was around 3 miles from the next house so I guess me and the postman were probably their only threat?
