Classics Monthly Ummer 2010

Gaining access to the areas of your classic that need attention is half the battle. If you're regularly working underneath your car, investing in a hydraulic lift that can run off a domestic power supply will make the world of difference. This should be your first concern when buying a lift. Ask what backups and failsafes there are. Here, lowering the lift needs two hands - a button and a lever that are a good distance apart have to be pressed at the same time. This prevents the lift dropping...

Cm Says

Buying parts isn't always just about getting the cheapest bits you can find, and secondhand parts don't necessarily need to be a terrible gamble. It's all down to the function of the bit you're fitting. Yes, buy cheap badges or chrome, but never cut standards when it comes to safety equipment such as brakes, tyres or seatbelts. And make sure you know exactly who you're buying from before you pay. ED People selling old tyres confuse the word 'new' with the word 'unused' parts when I can supply...

Info

Each compressor will have a nut into which you can insert a ratchet drive. Slowly tighten them, doing a little bit on one compressor, a little bit on the other one, and so on. Keep checking the security of the compressors as you go. Even when you've removed the spring, handle it carefully and place it on the floor gently. Don't give the compressors any chance to slip. As well as trunnions, you may have grease points on ball joints and other moving components. Refer to a workshop manual to find...

Maintain

Simple servicing jobs that can be don at home to keep your classic safe. Working on your brakes is a straightforward process, and a simple servicing job such as replacing pads is within the reach of any classic owner. It's quick and easy, and when you've done it once you'll wonder why you ever paid for a garage to do it. Drum brakes are more fiddly to work with because of their construction (there's a slight knack to getting the shoes and springs back in place), but they're still easy. If...

Although more than four decades have elapsed, the Minx has worn well and still cuts a dash.

Protect Bodywork

Basic steps to preserve your car's panels. Act quickly before corrosion spreads. Your classic's bodywork depends on its outer coatings for protection. Once those layers are breached, you'll need to act quickly to prevent' further damage and contain the problem as much as possible. If left to their own devices, these areas will soon degrade - and that degradation spreads fast. Stone chips are a common cause of paint damage. If the lacquer's chipped, moisture can get in and a larger area starts...

Quick View Checks

Tick off our vital checks for peace of mind Look out for filler here. It's an awkward area to repair properly because it's made up of so many shapes where panels meet. Check the bumpers themselves as well as their mounting brackets -corrosion can be rife in these areas. New bumpers aren't expensive. Make sure there aren't any tears or cracks in it, and that it rolls back and reattaches easily. Key areas to inspect carefully. Your final offer price should reflect their condition.

Realisation Of The Month

I'm not sure when I turned into the sort of person who polishes cars. I think it may have started with the BMW and carried over to the Crab Last month, you may remember that Gary posed a question for our website forum in his diary. It was along of the lines of classics going downhill if you didn't use them. That was the stage I'd got to with the Crab. Every time I used it, it seemed something else would go wrong. Something minor, but enough to dissuade me from driving it. poor running. It's...

The main difference was that I could use the car regularly without worrying that this or that would fail. I drove it 12,000 miles without any worries. I calculated about 36mpg but I never tried to drive economically - 40mpg would be possible. If anyone wants to do this, I'd recommend a 3.0-litre...

Recover Trim A

Missing, broken and damaged trim spoils an otherwise tidy classic. Replacing or recovering trim panels isn't usually difficult. Specialist trim suppliers can match most materials or, if you own a mainstream classic, replacement items might be available off the shelf. Having found a suitable offcut of black vinyl at Beaulieu MotorMart for a mere 2,1 decided my Triumph 2000's tired gearstick surround and gaiter needed a new lease of life. All the work shown here was done without the need for...

Six Degrees

How to get from the Citro n 2CV to the Volkswagen Beetle The Citro n 2CV (see page 102) was launched in 1948 with an air-cooled twin-cylinder engine. Other cars to have a song named after them include the (Little Red) Corvette. Chevrolet offered fuel injection on it as early as 1957. The first British production sportscar to get fuel injection was the Triumph TR5 10 years later. Made for just over a year, it was styled by Michelotti. The Fiat 500 also used an air-cooled twin. In 1995, British...

Up A

Easy steps to improve your engines starting, running and fuel economy If your carburettor isn't correctly set up, your classic's never going to run properly - it's as simple as that. If the mixture's too rich, your fuel consumption will increase and the engine will run unevenly. You could suffer from problems such as poor starting, stalling while idling, and the exhaust smoke will be dense and smell heavily of petrol. Too lean a mixture, on the other hand, can cause overheating and in time...

The edges of the door skin were also shotblasted to remove a portion of the protective black paint. This would become weakened during the welding and bending processes. The edges were then covered in masking tape .because the entire inner panel was also painted in etch primer. Once that had dried, a thin coating of stone-chip paint was applied to the lower surface. This not only provides extra corrosion resistance but adds an extra soundproofing layer. Cm 1 Any rust holes on the door frame can...
