Kiss goodbye to door shell tinworm with a quality repair for this common rust trap area. WORDS AND PHOTOGRAPHY BY ROB MARSHALL Car doors are not complicated structures. However, because most types consist of an outer skin of metal sheet that's crimped to a frame, water traps are inbuilt. This makes internal rusting inevitable, especially if the car's stood outside for a long period of time. Any deterioration is almost certain to be more extensive beyond what's visible. Even though door skins...

The FBHVC reported a huge level of support from enthusiasts for Drive It Day on April 25 Clubs, museums and other organisations planned runs and events, with many of them raising tens of thousands of pounds for charity. The Federation's own event was based at the Royal Oak in Bishopstone, near Swindon. They attracted more than 140 different vehicles on two, three and four wheels, including rarities such as a 1960 Facel Vega Facellia and 1959 two-stroke Auto Union 1000SP. Drive It Day is...

Small charge is made to cover burning & postage All of these cars would make ideal companions for a weekend break. The MGB offers the most room to stow your overnight bags thanks to its sizable boot, but the others have nonetheless got one or two tricks up their sleeves. You might expect the MR2 to have nothing in the way of storage. The small area behind the seats, for example, is used to store the roof panels once removed. But while the rear boot might not be very big from front to back,...

O Most doors are equipped with a rubber seal, which locates within a channel attached to the door frame. Remove it carefully, and note how it's secured to the door. Finally, store it with the removed interior trim. O Don't forget to inspect within the door's cavity for any obvious rusting. Also, check for the presence of anti-rust wax, which will not only present a fire risk when welding but could also affect the quality of your repair. Scrape any evident product away. 1 Unbolt the door from...

Words By Mike Renaut Photography By Gez Hughes

Cordless drills have evolved rapidly in recent years. New technology and developments in rechargeable batteries have catapulted cordless drills forward to the point where they are now able to replace the more-traditional corded mains-powered drills for most applications. This is great news for us enthusiasts who might not have access to mains electricity at our garage or lock-up. The lack of a trailing cable and reduced chances of electrocution are big bonuses working outdoors on a car. Compact...

Undoubtedly add a certain ye ne sars guoi to the whole experience, but - aided by a 356 performance exhaust - Paul's car still sounds pretty good. It might be an air-cooled flat-four, but any similarity, aural or otherwise, with the humble VW Beetle ends there. Paul's in no doubt as to the 912's worth. The handling's tricky on the early 911, he says. The price difference isn't worth it. The balance is better on the 912, and it's cheaper to run and maintain because it's less complicated. People...

Robert's made a great job of this resto in a short space of time. The Renault 12 estate is without doubt a rare car - it's nearly forgotten these days. The quality of Robert's restoration is there for all to see. This is a car that looks factory fresh. Best of all, it's not tucked away in a museum or private collection. It's out on the roads, reminding people of the quirky, charismatic cars Renault used to make. HZD Once a popular model, the 12 has become an incredibly rare classic. This...

Track Rod Ends

1 Not always noticeable, a split track rod end gaiter will spill its lubricant grease, wear the joint, and make the steering feel loose and sloppy. A split steering rack gaiter enables oil to leak out and dirt to enter, which accelerates wear. To fit a new gaiter, the track rod end must be removed. O Clean any dirt and debris from the track rods using a stiff brush, and look for the spanner 'flat'. Measure from any point on the track rod to the centre of the track rod end. This will help when...

When I looked at the car it was crammed full of junk. Old wheels, bits of plastic, all sorts. I was amazed how well it cleaned up. The carpets are original, as are the door seals. Even the controls on the heater vents, which are famous for being snapped off easily, are still intact. The only thing I've changed is the door handles in the front. The rears were black, but the fronts red, so I fitted a spare set to the front so they'd all match up. With the estate finished and back on the road,...
