Just get one of the eBay header tanks, they are a copy of the original and not bad a problem yet , and I tried Yamaha weather proof stuff unless it was perfect beforehand didn't really do muchreinstalled the headlight inner by screwing the adjuster in fully to pop it back on, I was well happy when that worked, an apprentice wound it out too far setting the head lights for mot, couldn't find a useable expansion tank so I have plastic welded over the brittle hole, hope that works! And soldered new wires into the headlight connection as it has been bugging me for 8 years! Also trying out the rust beating boeshield t9
I did a gearbox empty and change in the Summer .... expected nothing but what a huge improvement. Will be time well spent.
98k nearly 20year Old it's intermittent , and it's had 20k in 2 years over the 500 or had been averaging for many yearsHow many miles on the Bumblebee? My water pump bearing is rattling too now, 131000 miles!
Great job, are you planning to spray any rust proofing stuff inside the sills you have welded?Chopped the mid silencer , cause it was silent , welded most the drivers sills and other bits ,chopped the new bumper for the exhaust
Still need to do the other side , an d finish up
Tell you, this is one amazing trick .... just went out and one rock solid frozen 106, an ice berg Vauxhall and the Micra windows are still just water and mist on them. Put this one maybe two days back and is more like a 50% white vinegar mix now but it really does work. As normal I'm probably last to find out about a trick you most likely know about but is like voodoo magic hereTried that trick of mixing 30% white vinegar and water to spray on windows at night to stop ice forming in the morning .... amazed ... it worked!
Doors still stuck shut but saw another article that said to spray low cal cooking oil on door rubbers, wipe the loose off and seems that should stop the rubbers sticking to the frame. Trying that one next!
