    My trusted CTN gearbox decided it had enough


    The bearing in the pic decided to break up,throwing debris through the bell housing,causing a massive oil leak !
    All my internals including my trusty wavetrac were transplanted into a second hand O2a box,all nearly seal and bearings,new clutch,and back running
    Bearing decided to break up,when I was crawling in traffic !
    237k now,another 1k and I've reached the moon,another 5k and I've personally done 200k

    The drivers window mechanism gave up this week ☹️
    Up in the loft to sort my spare mech’s out,3 passenger,2drivers


    Bit of a nightmare getting the old one out,properly fubared


    With the help of my brother holding the glass up,it wasn’t too hard replacing it
    Tip of the day,if you’re re-using the rubber bushes on the motor,drill out the old pop rivets with a left handed drill bit,with the drill in reverse,they just fall out !
    I’ve got a small lathe I did mine in
    Mileage now up to 244k

    Good work Dragon. These mechanisms are not ideal especially with the reliance on the integrity of the two plastic clips at the top and bottom

    Btw those estorils look brilliant! Any proper side shots on the car? I would love a set if they were in 16s and 5 stud

    We just cut a slit in the side of the rubber bush and the rivet fell out. Glued back together easy. How much of a pain it was to the mech back in won't want to do that job again in a hurry.

    Fixed my loose gear shifter surround, over the years the locating tabs broke,my spare one is my old grey one,so I fabricated a couple of brackets out of some thin aluminium angle I had laying about.
    Fits nice and snug now

    Been a bit lazy on updating, had some bodywork done to keep the dreaded rust away
