Re: No papers

Just me two cent's worth. We recently purchased a 1956 Series One Land Rover SWB that has just come out of a nut and bolt restoration. We were told that the paperwork is being sorted - that turned out not to be the case. Long story short: I had to go through the whole process from scratch. Police cl...

Re: Newbie! Advice needed please!

Welcome Nixon

The Galant was an excellent car, but with a very limited production run.
Drive train is fairly bulletproof, but you'll have to cultivate a relationship with the guys in the older spares shops.
The body was fairly soft and parts might be an issue.

Good luck.

Re: Fibre glass advice needed.

My fibreglass supplier is AMT Composites in Johannesburg. They supply a silicone mould kit. This allows you to cast a silicone mould of the piece. Once cured, the silicone mould easily removes from the master. You can then cast the piece out of fibreglass resin and once cured you are left with an ex...

Re: Restoration: where to begin

DO NOT TOUCH THE CAR. GET THE CAR IN YOUR NAME. This can be done without roadworthy. Sort out all outstanding fees and fines on the car. If the above does not pan out, walk away from the project, as it will end up burning you in the long run. While busy with the above, define your vision for the pro...

Re: SAPPHIRE V8

To the best of my knowledge, the RS500 Sapphires were built by JT Developments in Pretoria and sold through Steyn's Ford branches in the city. (They were also the guys that did the initial development of the 3.4 liter Essex V6 for Ford) The cars were Ghia spec with all the bells and whistles. They h...

Re: Bad workers in S.A.

Rassie, I cannot agree with you more. It is extremely difficult to find good help. I also run a one man show. I currently have a friend who is between jobs, who assists me with the mechanical aspects. He is a great help, but the car audio side and custom fabrication is not his forte. I have my garde...

Re: Automatic 3L Maxima gearbox problem.
