Já não actualizava o blog há demasiado tempo, felizmente tenho andado ocupado!
"I haven't updated for awhile, fortunately i've been busy!"
Decidi adiantar as compras e comprei muitas peças,
- Molas e amortecedores (comprados na Rimmerbros), serviço impecável, recomendo vivamente.
- As molas são OEM standard, os amortecedores são Bilstein, standard.
- Casquilhos, parafusos, porcas, anilhas, retentores, rolamentos, bump stops, etc etc etc, tudo comprado na Britcar, serviço excepcional.
- 2x complete AP lockheed kit de reparação para o servo-freio com instruções originais, teve que ser, senti-me na responsabilidade de tratar delicadamente do sistema de travagem
" I decided to get ahead on my shopping list and bought quite a few things,
- Springs and shock absorbers (bought from rimmerbros), impeccable costumer service, i highly recommend .
- The springs are OEM and the shocks are Bilstein, all standard as from factory production, shame they don't make woodhead's anymore.
- Bolts, washers, screws, bump stops, gaskets, bushes, bearing, etc etc, all bought from Britcar, which also has a great costumer service and i do highly recommend.
- 2x complete AP lockheed servo repair kit with all original fitting instructions, very expensive part, bought those for a bargain price of 25 GBP, well worth it, specially if you're trying to keep everything as original as possible and you do not joke around braking systems on a 2 ton piece of metal"
Contudo, mesmo tendo gasto uma pequena fortuna em peças, ainda me faltam 3 ou 4 para ter absolutamente tudo novo para montar o chassis e os eixos, num restauro "nut&bolt" é preciso ter muita paciência, até porque nem todas as peças estão disponíveis.
"Even after spending a small fortune on parts, there are still 3 or 4 that are missing and i can't seem to find them anywhere, in order to have every single thing that i need to re-assemble the chassis and axles.
In a nut&bolt restoration you must be patient as a lot of the parts you need are obsolete and nowhere to be found! "
